We perform standard preventative and diagnostic procedures, including cleanings, periodontal maintenance treatment, sealants and fluoride varnishes.
Digital radiography is one of the newer technologies of the dental office. A small sensor is placed in the patients mouth and, instantly, with up to 90% less radiation than non-digital, the x-ray is taken. The x-ray can be viewed immediately, under magnification, to help with diagnosing problems is a faster, safer manner. We also use lead aprons with thyroid collars.
We have the ability to use a videocamera on a patient’s mouth and capture images of teeth and gums. This allows us to diagnose problem areas and view the images under magnification, helping to identify cracked teeth and broken fillings.
A white filling (composite) is a tooth colored plastic and glass mixture– the same color as normal teeth– used to restore decayed teeth.
