Digital Dental X-Ray
Dental X-rays have come a long way. Todays dental X-rays are safer, faster, more comfortable and more informative than the X-rays of years past. Digital X-rays, one of the latest and most advanced dental technologies, produce high-quality images of your teeth that can be viewed instantly by you and your dentist on a LCD monitor. Digital X-rays reduce radiation by up to 90% and provide exceptional diagnostic information to ensure that potential problems are caught in their earliest stages. Intraoral photography is another alternative to traditional dental X-rays. With intraoral photography, problems such as cavities, fractures and discolorations in the teeth are captured through clear and sharp photographic images that are taken with a 35mm or digital camera.
WaterLase MD Laser
If just the thought of needles and the dreaded sound of the dental drill makes you cringe, the WaterLase can help alleviate your fears. Using water, air and advanced laser technology, the WaterLase allows your dentist to use little and in some case even no anesthetic or drills to perform many dental procedures. Precise, safe and effective, the WaterLase can also help reduce any bleeding or swelling associated with traditional dental tools and methods.
The WaterLase is a special device that combines the energy of a laser with the power of a spray of water. With this combination, dentists can make incisions more efficiently and gently, fixing the jaw bone or gums without the use of vibrations and heat from traditional dental drills. Instead of the vibrating patients normally experience, they will only basically a hear a gentle popping sound which is not at all bothersome, and more importantly, does not cause any pain.
Intraoral photography is another alternative to traditional dental X-rays. With intraoral photography problems such as cavities, fractures, discolorations in the teeth, and gum disease are captured through clear and sharp images. The camera also allows you to see what the dentist sees on a monitor right in front of you, making it easier for you to understand and appreciate any potential problems or risks to your oral health.
