Have you ever thought that it might be helpful if you could see exactly what your dentist sees? Obviously, looking inside your own mouth normally isn’t an option, but thanks to our state-of-the-art intraoral cameras, we can let you see for yourself what is going on with your teeth and gums. These images are also very helpful for us, since they make it easier to find signs of decay or gum disease in their earliest stages.
Most of surface of your teeth is hidden beneath the gum line. This means that many oral issues could start to develop in an area that is not normally visible, which is why X-rays are such an important part of regular preventive care. Digital X-rays are much sharper compared to traditional radiography, and the images can be developed much faster. The process also involves far less radiation, making it safer for both you and our team.
For certain procedures, we can forego the use of traditional metal instruments in favor of laser dentistry. A soft tissue laser is typically used to help treat gum disease and other conditions where some of the soft tissue inside your mouth needs to be removed. The precision of a dental laser makes it very easy for us to control how much tissue is removed, and it will help cauterize any blood vessels that become exposed in order to limit bleeding.
