Lasers can be used to remove tooth decay, clean away bacteria from gums, take a biopsy sample, remove lesions from canker sores, and whiten teeth. Lasers use energy in the form of light to cut or vaporize tissue or to enhance teeth-whitening agents.
Air Abrasion Technology
Many patients are uncomfortable with the feeling of the drill used by dentists in cavity fillings and other procedures. Air Abrasion Technology uses air to remove tiny amounts of tooth material with extremely precise control, which makes a better experience for both patients and dentists.
An anesthesia wand provides the comfort of anesthesia without the discomfort many patients feel around needles. The anesthesia wand is a pen-like device. It pre-numbs the site where the anesthesia will be administered, allowing a pain-free experience. The wand measures out precisely how much numbing medication is necessary.
Same-day crown fabrication is the newest innovation in crown technology. Rather than placing a temporary crown and returning in a few weeks to have a permanent crown fitted, we now offer same-day crown fabrication so you can get your dental work done in a single appointment.
Though losing a tooth is not “fun” once the Tooth Fairy no longer leaves money under your pillow, dental implants make tooth replacement much easier than it ever has been. Created with an implant rod that fuses to the jawbone and replaced the original tooth’s roots, dental implants are matched to your teeth and function just like natural teeth.
X-rays are necessary to monitor tooth health. However, x-rays traditionally exposed patients to some radiation. With digital x-rays, the amount of radiation to which patients are exposed is lowered by as much as ninety percent. Digital x-rays also eliminate the process of developing the x-rays and allow the images to be enhanced to show even more detail than ever possible.
Our intra-oral camera technology allows us invaluable access to the details of your mouth. Much of dental diagnosis and treatment is based on what we can see in your mouth, so the intra-oral camera helps us to become even more precise. The camera helps you understand exactly what’s going on in your mouth. A small chairside monitor is set up so that you can get the dentist’s view into your mouth.
Laser Diagnosis and Treatment
Lasers are used in a variety of ways in dental work. They can detect very small areas of tooth decay. They can also treat gum disease and remove cancerous cells. Lasers also help in cavity treatments; they are used to clean out the tooth decay inside a tooth.
