Less Radiation with Digital Technology
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.
Don’t Take Chances When Playing Sports
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.
Intra-Oral Camera Technology Lets You See for Yourself
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.
Comfort and Accuracy – And Shorter Visits!
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.
Sedation with Nitrous Oxide
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.
