We care about our patients and do our utmost to provide the services that help keep them safe, healthy and comfortable, and provide the restorations that are extremely durable. The advanced technology that we employ in our office allows us to do just that.
To obtain an x-ray, a small sensor pad that is connected by a line to a computer, is placed in the mouth. A beam is then sent through your teeth to the sensor that records the images. The doctors and staff can immediately pull up the digital x-rays on a computer screen to review the results. No more waiting for x-rays to be developed. We can also share the images with you so you can see what we are explaining about your oral condition.
Because early detection is the key to successful outcomes, we have incorporated ViziLite, a new, FDA-cleared medical technology for screening of oral cancer, into the standard of care of our patients, to ensure that they receive the most comprehensive oral cancer screening possible.
ViziLite is a simple, painless and non-invasive technology that improves the doctor’s ability to visualize, evaluate and monitor suspicious areas at their earliest stages, before they can progress to something far more serious, and potentially life-threatening. ViziLite helps us see what we can’t see with the unaided eye.
On a patient’s first visit, and at every annual check-up, we will be performing a ViziLite oral cancer screening.
Diagnostic wax-ups allows our doctors to evaluate occlusion (how the teeth are fitting together), determine how much reduction is needed to achieve final results and determine the appropriate size and length of restorations for a natural looking smile. This assures that our patients will not only have a beautiful smile, but one that is strong, healthy and functional.
Diagnostic wax-ups allow our patients to see what their smile will look like after the proposed treatment is finished, before treatment is even started.
Once our doctors are satisfied with the function and esthetics on the wax-up models, impressions can be taken and shared with the ceramist who will be creating the restorations. This allows the ceramist to clearly see what is expected of each restoration for a perfect fit.
Every dental check-up is unique, but there are certain things that dentists look for with every visit. It is helpful to understand how a dental check-up works and the importance of getting one. Most notably, dentists check the health of each of the patient’s teeth and the gums in addition to checking for early signs…
