Digital x-rays allow dentists to reduce radiation levels by up to 90% over traditional x-rays. Dentists can take pictures of your teeth and gums inside your mouth with a small intraoral camera that allows you to see exactly what the dentist sees. Cavities hidden under stained grooves or cracks in teeth can be found with help of a device called a Diagnodent that enables dentists to detect tooth decay and cavities at an earlier stage than ever. Materials like tooth-colored fillings called composites allow dentists to use minimally invasive procedures and techniques to restore and repair teeth. Mercury amalgam fillings can removed safely and replaced with metal-free materials and restorations that are more bio-compatible with your teeth and body.
Discolored teeth can be whitened quickly and virtually pain-free in just a couple of hours at the dentist’s office or in the comfort of your own home within a week or two. Crooked teeth can be straightened without metal brackets and wires using removable, invisible, and comfortable plastic retainers called aligners through a process called Invisalign. Missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants. You can now make dental appointments online and receive text and email reminders of your appointments so you never have to miss one again.
And finally, it’s a lot more comfortable than ever to go to the dentist. From sedation that allows you to rest peacefully through your dental visit to laughing gas or TV glasses you wear that allows you to watch your favorite TV show or movie on an 80 inch screen. Don’t settle for outdated technology and treatments. You deserve the best that modern dentistry has to offer.
