Whenever you come in for a checkup, Dr. Perez and our team will use a small intraoral camera to take high-resolution images of your teeth and gums. These can then be displayed on a monitor right in the treatment room, allowing us to easily identify potential problems that may be missed during a traditional exam. This instrument also enables you to finally see your smile from your dentist’s point of view, ensuring you better understand the current state of your oral health.
Most of your teeth are actually hidden below your gum line, and X-rays enable us to look below the surface of your smile so we can find potential issues before they cause major headaches. With all-digital X-rays, we’ve completely fixed many of the problems associated with traditional film X-rays. The images show much more detail, take only a few seconds to develop, and they also expose patients to 90% LESS radiation, which our parents with small children always like to hear!
This device is truly a game-changer when it comes to the patient experience. When you need a restoration like a crown, bridge, or denture or an oral appliance, you don’t have to sit with impression putty shoved into your arches. Our Sirona Dentsply oral scanner digitally captures your upper and lower teeth and gums without any discomfort. In addition, because the entire process is digital, there is less room for error, and the lab can get to work faster, which means you restorations or appliances are more likely to fit perfectly the first time.
Treating gum disease used to involve physically removing gum tissue in order to clean the roots of the teeth, which as you can imagine, isn’t very comfortable! With our soft-tissue laser, however, we can completely remove harmful bacteria from deep below the gum line without using incisions or sutures. In fact, laser treatment is so comfortable that most patients don’t even need local anesthetic!
If you’re tired of seeing dark stains and yellow discoloration in the bathroom mirror, professional teeth whitening can make a world of difference in the best way! Zoom combines high-strength gel with a state-of-the-art light that penetrates your dental enamel and breaks up dark shades, lightening your smile noticeably in record time. Take-home kits are also available for convenient touch-ups whenever you have the free time.
