Precision And Performance
As a patient at North Oaks Dental, you will become acquainted with our many dental technologies beginning with your first visit. That appointment will start with a comprehensive review of your situation and then some X-rays. These days we use digital X-rays, which emit less radiation than traditional X-rays and give us more precise images.
Additionally, we have a CBCT 3D scanner on hand that allows us to take 3D X-rays of your entire mouth. This technology makes it much easier for us to diagnose emerging dental problems and plan out future procedures like placing dental implants.
Another specialized tool we use during exams is the intraoral camera. With this camera, we’ll take pictures around the mouth and then show you exactly what we see inside your mouth.
Lights And Lasers
When one of our patients shows signs of gum disease, we can save them from the invasive ordeal of having conventional gum surgery. Sure, this surgery still works well enough but it requires the use of scalpels and stitches. At North Oaks Dental, we’re using laser therapy to treat gum issues. The laser evaporates the gum infection and allows the teeth and gums to reattach without stitches. The healing happens fast as well.
Some, if not most, of the other dental offices in the area still rely on goopy materials to get an accurate impression for a dental crown or a bridge. The problem with the impression material is that the majority of patients find it untolerable, and it can even trigger a gag reflex. Rather than using goopy materials, we now have a digital scanner. The digital scanner allows us to get the perfect digital impression of the area in question. It’s important to get the perfect impression because a better impression means a better restoration. A restoration that fits poorly or may fail much earlier than one that fits perfectly. When investing in your smile, it is important to consider all of these things!
