X-rays are a essential tool for dentists. They are used in diagnosing tooth decay as well as other conditions of the teeth and bones. Lakeside Dental uses state of the art digital radiography – a much safer alternative to past x-ray processes. Digital radiography uses 70-80% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
Rather than bulky cardboard pieces, digital x-rays use a single small sensor that’s placed in your mouth and attached to a computer imaging device. Pictures are relayed instantly to a chair-side monitor for easy viewing. It also allows us to zoom in and display close-up images. This means more accurate diagnosis and treatment of trouble spots.
Laser Cavity Detection
Sometimes cavities can form in pin-size holes and crevices on the tooth. The Laser Cavity Finder has the unique ability to detect these sneaky cavities that traditional techniques might have missed.
Using this technology allows us to be nearly 100% accurate in our cavity detection. It gives us an edge, enabling us to find and treat cavities in the earliest stages for better preservation of tooth structure. This saves our guests time and money by providing shorter and more conservative treatment options.
Because inquiring minds need to know, we have the ability to show you everything that we see in the mouth through our intra-oral cameras. We can take pictures of your oral conditions and show them to you, in high definition, on our patient monitor located at each dental chair. We want you to understand the “why’s and why not’s” to the treatment we are recommending, and see for yourself, in great detail, the conditions present so that you can make the best informed decision possible.
3-D CAT Radiography
We know that it is an inconvenience for our patients to be referred to another office for treatment, therefore, at Lakeside Dental, our goal is to do as much of your necessary treatment right here in our facility so you don’t have to be inconvenienced with a referral. Our 3-D CAT Radiography helps us to see 3 dimensional images of the teeth, bone, airway, and jaw joints so that we can accurately diagnose, screen, and treat traumatic injuries,difficult root canals, implants, Sleep Apnea, Extractions, Braces, etc. Some of these procedures can be billed to your medical insurance, allowing you to use valuable dental benefits for other treatment.
At Lakeside Dental we desire to be on the cutting edge of innovations that make your visit more comfortable and affordable. Digital scanning and Printing accomplishes this. In many cases, we no longer have to place gooey, gaggy impression materials in your mouth but can take these impressions digitally by simply waving an electronic wand in your mouth. This digital impression can then be used to fabricate many of the restorations and appliances we fabricate for our patients. The 3-D printers print the molds for us while we are working, thus increasing efficiency and conserving materials. With these innovations, we can fabricate our own invisible aligners to straighten teeth, study models, custom sports mouth guards, and much more.
If, after all your attempts to overcome dental fear, you find yourself still nervous because of past negative experiences, we offer a combination of oral premedication and nitrous oxide sedation for adults that is sure to help you. If you are interested in sedation, please contact our office in advance of your appointment so we can make arrangements for you. Please be aware that at this time we are not equipped to put children to sleep for their procedures.
