With this small handheld device, our team can capture close-up, high-resolution images of the teeth and gums and instantly display them on a large monitor right in the treatment room. Finally, our patients can see exactly what we’re talking about! This instrument helps turn routine appointments into a fun and educational experience, plus it enables our team to better explain someone’s dental needs so they can make confident, well-informed decisions about their care.
Compared to traditional film-based X-rays, digital X-rays are a huge leap forward in almost every way imaginable. They can capture and create images in a fraction of the time, they don’t require toxic chemicals to be processed, and better yet, they reduce radiation exposure by up to 80%! Plus, the images can be instantly stored, copied, and sent to make referrals or filing for insurance a breeze.
Soft and Hard Tissue Laser
Thanks to our Waterlase MD Erbium Laser, even the most sensitive periodontal (gum) related procedures can be performed quickly and painlessly. This instrument combines a highly concentrated beam of light with a jet of water, and with it, we can eliminate gum disease bacteria, remove infected tissue, and even provide cosmetic gum lifts while reducing pain, swelling, and bleeding to practically non-existent levels. Patients typically don’t even require anesthetic to remain completely comfortable during a laser procedure.
The TMJ, or temporomandibular joints, are the set of hinges that connects your jaw to the rest of your skull, and it enables your jaw to move in all directions, allowing you to speak, eat, laugh, and yawn. Like other joints in the body, it can sometimes develop issues due to strain, stress, arthritis, or injury, which can lead to pain and stiffness in the face that can severely affect a person’s quality of life. If you have a jaw that is difficult to move, pops and clicks all the time, or if you experience chronic headaches, click on the link below to learn how our team can help you achieve complete relief.
