One aspect of dentistry that prevents people from receiving the care they need is their fear of pain. Patients associate dental procedures with pain, so they delay or avoid both routine dental checkups and necessary interventions. Unfortunately, dental problems don’t usually resolve themselves.
The Solea dental laser replaces the dental drill for most dental procedures. The dental laser offers a significant set of advantages over a dental drill. The dental laser is a pain-free option for patients. Because of the way the laser works, no shots are needed!
Digital Dental X-rays
We use digital x-rays to detect dental problems and assess the condition of your teeth. In addition to reducing the amount of radiation exposure by 80% over traditional x-rays, it provides a better assessment of each tooth. Digital x-rays offer clearer, sharper images with more detail. This allows us to better evaluate the condition of your teeth and spot potential problems earlier and more reliably.
Intra-oral cameras make excellent diagnostic and assessment tools. Intra-oral cameras create high quality, high resolution images of your teeth and structures in your mouth. The images allow us to evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums. It also provides an opportunity for us to show you, the patient, what we see. This allows us to have meaningful conversations about the condition of your teeth, and work with you to make the best possible short-term and long-term treatment decisions.
CariVu Caries Detection Device
We use the DEXIS CariVu caries detection device to find hidden tooth decay (caries) and discover cracks that have formed in your teeth. Dental x-rays are helpful in diagnosing these issues but the CariVu device uses non-ionizing radiation so it is completely safe!
Ultrasonic scalers use high frequency vibrations to break down and remove plaque and tartar that accumulate on teeth. Plaque and tartar can cause gingivitis and periodontal disease in people of any age. Ultrasonic scalers use a vibrating thin metal tip and a stream of water to create microscopic bubbles that implode on the surface of the tooth.
