We live in exciting times. There is a growing academic prediction that a combination of new diagnostic and therapeutic technologies will , by the end of the 2020’s, give us reliable, very early detection of tooth decay and the therapeutic methods that can stop the decay process very early and repair challenged tooth structure. This will bring new meaning to the Phrase “Preventive Dentistry” , thus avoiding the need to use the the dental drill to remove diseased tooth structure.
New technologies in Dentistry, either fade from general interest or mature to a status that help define The Standard of Care . Our practice takes pride in keeping technologically up-to-date, in the following areas: Early diagnosis with Laser Tooth Decay Detection & Digital X-Rays, more convenient and aesthetic results thru Single Visit Crowns and better patient education and communication by sharing Intra-Oral photos & Digital X-Rays at the time of diagnosis with the patient. Additionally, our use of Ultrasonic Surgery has contributed to greater post-operative comfort with fewer complications associated with extractions.
