We have Lasers :
All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with. When used for “curing” a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth.
Compared to the traditional dental drill, lasers:
- May reduce anxiety in patients uncomfortable with the use of the dental drill
- Minimize bleeding and swelling during soft tissue treatments
- May preserve more healthy tooth during cavity removal
With lasers we can treat:
- Tooth decay. Lasers are used to remove decay within a tooth and prepare the surrounding enamel for receipt of the filling. Lasers are also used to “cure” or harden a filling.
- Gum disease. Lasers are used to reshape gums and remove bacteria during periodontal procedures.
- Biopsy or lesion removal. Lasers can be used to remove a small piece of tissue (called a biopsy) so that it can be examined for cancer. Lasers are also used to remove lesions in the mouth and relieve the pain of canker sores.
We are a Paperless Office :
Our office is taking advantage of this wonderful technology! Smart and efficient never go out of style.
We have Digital Electronic Sensors :
We use a small sensor connected directly to a computer instead of a film packet. It’s
faster because the x-rays are available immediately on the computer monitor, with no development step in between. Because the sensor is more sensitive than conventional x-ray film, the amount of x-ray radiation is reduced by up to 80 percent.
We use Digital Panoramic X-rays :
Panoramic radiography also called panoramic x-ray, is a two-dimensional (2-D) dental x-ray examination that captures the entire mouth in a single image, including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, surrounding structures and tissues.. A panoramic x-ray can also reveal the presence of an existing issue or potential problem such as:
- advanced periodontal decease
- tumors and Cancer
- impacted teeth
- temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
- Reduces Patient Exposure to Radiation 80%.
We have several Intraoral Cameras:
These cameras are used to show you what we see. They are best used chairside to show you a clear picture of the inside of your mouth, allowing us to advise you on treatment
In addition, we also offer the following:
