The DigiDoc intraoral camera system makes it possible for us to take clear, detailed photos of your teeth and gums at different angles within your mouth. From our perspective, this is an invaluable advantage for diagnosing dental issues and planning certain treatments. It can also help you fully understand your oral health situation by giving you a visual aid to look at while we describe the problem and the specific treatments that might be needed.
Using X-rays in a dental setting is nothing new, but some patients may not realize the dramatic difference that digital technology has made. Taking digital X-rays involves much less radiation compared to traditional radiography, which is good news for both patients and dental professionals. The switch to digital X-rays has also helped speed up the process, as now the images can be displayed immediately instead of needing to be developed in a chemical-filled dark room first.
3D Cone Beam Imaging
Today, 3D visualization is considered crucial for planning dental implant surgery and other procedures; having a detailed picture of your entire mouth and various nearby structures allows us to account for all kinds of potential complications ahead of time. For example, it can tell us where nerve pathways are located so that we can avoid them while placing implant posts. Our Sirona 3D imaging system can create a highly detailed model of your mouth based on a thorough scan.
Digital Impression System
A digital impression system scans your teeth and gums to create a 3D digital model of your oral cavity that can be used for diagnostic purposes as well as treatment planning. Physical impressions require the use of messy materials that can be very uncomfortable to bite down on for long periods of time; digital impressions are preferred by many patients as a result, especially if they tend to struggle with a powerful gag reflex.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Lasers cause very little discomfort when used to perform dental procedures. In fact, it is often unnecessary to numb the mouth at all. Thus, many patients find treatments performed with SiroLaser to be much more pleasant. Lasers are also effective at reducing harmful bacteria levels in the mouth, and they allow for minimally invasive surgery because they can be very carefully aimed to only remove the tissue that has been damaged or infected.
Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry
Dental anxiety and dental phobias are relatively common, but fortunately there’s a way to help calm your nerves. With oral conscious sedation, you’ll experience no discomfort, and while you’ll be conscious enough to follow our directions, you’ll be in a state of mind where you are content with everything going on around you. You should plan on having someone else drive you home, as the aftereffects of oral conscious sedation can last for several hours.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Nitrous oxide is the mildest form of sedation used in modern dentistry. You may also know it as “laughing gas”, so called because it tends to put people in a euphoric mood. With nitrous oxide, you can have a stress-free appointment while still staying awake to follow our instructions and answer questions. Since nitrous oxide fully wears off within a few minutes after you stop breathing it in, you’ll be able to return to work or drive yourself home right after your treatment.
