Our entire staff is also dedicated to learning all that they can so that you get the smile you deserve. We are constantly learning new and better ways to give you the very best dental care.
We are dedicated to staying up to date with the latest dental advances. One way we do this is by offering i-CAT dental imaging.
Our i-CAT offers our patients images quickly. Our dentists are able to diagnose our patients better, catching problems sooner than they would be able to with only traditional imaging. It allows us to view your teeth, roots, airways, and even sinuses in less than ten seconds. We are also able to monitor TMD.
By using i-CAT imaging, we are able to diagnose and treat our patients quicker so that they don’t have to spend as much time in our office. We can view the images in just a few seconds instead of minutes, so we can start treatment right away!
X-Rays are used to examine the inside of your teeth. We are hoping to be able to catch any problems that we can’t see with the naked eye! Using radiology, we are able to see which teeth are developing cavities. We may also see some teeth or gum areas that may require some extra work.
We are dedicated to giving our patients the high quality care they deserve. We are proud to offer the latest technologies and equipment to keep their mouths healthy. One way we do this is by offering our patients the intraoral camera. They always say that a picture is worth a thousand words. We use our camera for just that reason.
We can take a picture and show you what is going on with your mouth. You may not believe you have dental disease until you see the pictures. Our camera is also very helpful when we are tracking the disease’s progress. We can take before and after pictures to determine if the treatment is working. We can see how far your mouth has come and determine if more treatment or a whole different type of treatment is needed.
LANAP is a form of laser gum disease treatment used for patients suffering from periodontal disease. The LANAP process is the only FDA-approved laser treatment used to treat gum disease.
Who can benefit from LANAP laser treatments? Ideal candidates experience the following symptoms:
- Red and swollen gums
- Bleeding gums
- Loose teeth
- Receding gum line
- Bone Loss
The procedure itself is performed with the help of a local anesthetic to reduce any discomfort. A tiny laser fiber is then inserted between the tooth and gum, ridding the area of bacteria and infection. Your dentist will then clear away any tartar or plaque and apply the laser once more for a more thorough cleaning and finally seal the pocket. As only local anesthetics are used, you may experience slight discomfort and numbness following the procedure, but can otherwise return to your daily activities.
