As Roswell dentists, at Roswell Dental Care, we refuse to compromise on the level of quality care we offer. Part of that commitment is the use of proven technologies because they provide many advantages for you – our valued patient.
In this blog … I’ll talk about the technology that helps us better determine the state of your oral health while offering you a better experience in the dental chair. You may be surprised to learn how beneficial this equipment really is.
Digital x-rays allow your Roswell dentist team to get a clear picture of the inside of your teeth and gums, so that diagnosis is more accurate and treatment specific to your unique situation. In addition, there’s…
- up to 90% less radiation than with traditional x-rays
- less time in the dental chair because they are faster and more efficient
- no exposure to film chemicals – safer for you, our team, and the environment
- faster insurance processing because claims are illustrated, and electronic communication is instantaneous.
The intraoral camera is a small pen-sized camera that is linked to a chairside monitor to display what we see when we examine your teeth, gums, and mouth. Because it displays images on a screen, it helps you understand what we mean when we’re discussing our findings with you during your dental cleaning, exam, or consultation.
Panoramic x-rays make it possible to get a full view of your entire mouth – with just one image. This includes both the upper and lower jaws, jaw joints, all your teeth, and even your nasal region. Other advantages of this technology at Roswell Dental Care include …
- a very detailed image that can show us bone abnormalities, cysts, fractures, impacted teeth, infections, and tumors
- it aids in accurate fit and placement of restorations, especially implants and dentures
- because the images are taken outside of your mouth, it means a fast, painless experience for you.
DentalVibe® is an advanced device that is designed to reduce the pain and anxiety you feel when receiving injections as part of your dental care. This cordless handheld device allows us to deliver virtually unnoticeable injections while you rest comfortably in the dental chair. This device delivers gentle vibrations that massage your gums during your dental procedure and mask the feeling of injections, making them virtually undetectable. Most patients say it feels like having an electric toothbrush in your mouth.
Soft tissue lasers are most often used in dentistry to correct gum issues. This can include gum disease treatment or changing the shape of your gums. Our patients love it because it feels less invasive than a scalpel and often reduces swelling and bleeding after treatment. They’re not ideal in all situations, so depending on your individual history and needs, we may recommend a different choice.
Hard tissue lasers have helped many of patients at Roswell Dental Care to receive a filling without freezing. Not only does that mean you leave our office without a numb mouth so that you can get back to your busy life as quickly and seamlessly as possible, they also leave more of your healthy tooth structure behind and can improve the longevity of the compromised tooth.
We are committed to making your experience as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Technology is a big part of that – and we make good use of it.
At Roswell Dental Care, we are dedicated to your utmost comfort and optimal oral health while we tailor all your dental treatments to your specific needs and desires. We work closely with a pediatric dentist next door and an orthodontist upstairs, so your family can enjoy continuity of care knowing your dental team is always working for you. Please call today to book your consultation or to ask any questions about our practice. We welcome new patients and our friendly team will be happy to talk to you.
Yours in excellent dental health,
Dr. David Remaley DDS, FACD, FICD, your Roswell dentist
