Digital X-rays are quick and easy, and they produce much less radiation than conventional X-rays. A sensor is placed in your mouth and a clear, panoramic picture of your jaws and teeth is ready for viewing on our computer screen. There is minimal waiting time for images to develop and no chemicals used in the process.
Each year in the United States, approximately 5 million teeth are lost
due to injury while playing sports. Mouthguards can protect, but only a
custom-made mouthguard can provide adequate protection and still allow
proper breathing during exertion. Those sold in stores do not fit or protect
as they should. The American Dental Association recommends the use of a
custom mouthguard for these sports:
Acrobatics, basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, handball, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, shotputting, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer, squash, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weight lifting, wrestling.
Through technology, our patients can work together with our dentists to have healthy gums and beautiful teeth. With the intra-oral camera, you can see for yourself what work needs to be done on what teeth. This amazing miniature video camera produces clear and accurate pictures of all your teeth. You will enjoy making informed decisions together with our doctors, creating a bond of teamwork.
Your comfort is our concern, and we are very pleased to utilize a technological advancement that is a combination of a suction device and brightly illuminating light that makes it much easier for the doctor to see your oral structures and for you to hold your mouth in the correct position.
The use of a bulky rubber dam is no longer necessary with this innovative device. It keeps the mouth dry when work is being performed to produce the best results.
We provide "laughing gas" to ease any discomfort you may have during certain treatment. This form of sedation is inhaled to induce relaxation. When used together with a local anesthetic that is administered to the area of your mouth that needs work, little or no pain will be felt.
Nothing beats an easier, more comfortable dental visit. If you have
questions about the
latest dental technology, give us a call today at (601) 981-4746.
