It’s one thing to have the right dental expertise and education, but it’s another thing entirely to provide technology to make administering that care more comfortable to patients. Additionally, having the right technology can ensure that your unique dental problems can be solved and your treatment outcomes are improved. Thanks to our office’s continuing education, we can provide cutting-edge technology to Raleigh, while still maintaining a personal and small-town feel for your care.
Does your jaw experience chronic pain every time you wake up? Do you notice popping or clicking of the jaw when you chew food? When overworked, the joints responsible for your jaw’s many complex movements can become inflamed and cause long-term discomfort. To address these areas, also known as the temporomandibular joints, we provide TMD diagnosis and treatment. With the right approach, we can remove your chronic pain and reduce your symptoms dramatically.
No one likes to be left in the dark when it comes to the status of their oral health. With the help of an intraoral camera, which is a small, handheld, camera-tipped device utilized in our office, we can show you exactly what your teeth, gums and other oral structures look like in real-time. We use the Sopro Life and Sopro Care cameras to show you the exact condition of your smile, making it much easier to explain precisely why you may need a restoration or other treatment completed.
Routine X-rays help us confirm aspects about your oral health that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to do, making them an extremely important diagnostic tool. Of course, that doesn’t mean we haven’t chosen to go digital at our office. Digital X-rays are far more efficient to complete and they emit significantly less radiation than their traditional counterparts. In fact, patients can expect up to 80 percent less radiation. With that said, we’ll always provide the proper protection to ensure your safety.
Laser dentistry has been around for quite some time now, but many dental offices have not yet taken the time to incorporate this revolutionary technology into their dental office. With our soft tissue laser, it’s easy to perform basic dental treatments in a far more conservative fashion. For example, when performing periodontal therapy, it’s easier to maintain as much natural gum tissue as possible and only remove infected tissue in the process. Healing time in post-operative care is also much faster and often requires no stitches!
Preventive care is a major focus here at the dental office, especially when it comes to cavities. The sooner we can catch the early development of cavities, the easier it is to prescribe treatment that stops their development in their tracks. With our early cavity detections system, we can confirm the presence of and stop the progression of cavities, helping you save money and time on future dental care costs.
