Dentistry Intraoperative Technology
Medicine is constantly evolving with breakthrough technologies that improve clinical results. We have incorporated some of these technologies into the procedures we complete to ensure that we are doing our best to provide quality, evidence-based care to our patients.
Laser therapy means state-of-the-art dentistry and modern patient care all in one. We use our laser for a variety of procedures – tissue removal, hemostasis, bacterial reduction, and aphthous ulcer treatment.
When root canal therapy (also called endodontics) is performed a tooth, much time and attention is given to locating all of the canal orifices. When a microscope is used to help locate these orifices, visualization is improved.
Loupes are a type of protective eyewear that provide magnification for improved visualization of the area we are evaluating or operating on. As the visual field is magnified, small details emerge and are used for our clinical decision making.
Patient comfort is extremely important to us, and we know the anxiety that patients can have right before receiving an injection. DentalVibe is a technology that we use that creates mild vibrations to override the pain sensation that is typically felt during an injection.
Ample lighting can make a world of difference when working in a small dark area such as the mouth. We have a large surgical light that illuminates the oral cavity to improve visualization while working.
Electric Hand Piece
The tools you use matter, and electric handpieces provide us with increased speed and torque when drilling, and the patient experiences less noise and vibration.
The techniques for completing a root canal procedure have improved over time with an increased focus on patient comfort and more predictable results. We use rotary instrumentation when we complete root canal therapy, a proven, more effective method for cleaning and shaping the canals inside the teeth.
AED stands for “Automated External Defibrillator”, and is a portable device that is critical if we were to have an emergency in the office. An AED makes it possible for us to respond to a medical emergency where defibrillation is required, in conjunction with CPR and activation of EMS.
For certain procedures, it is important for us to continuously monitor your temperature, blood pressure, pulse, respiration rate, and blood oxygen and carbon dioxide saturation. Our monitor displays your vitals as we are working so we can focus on providing high quality treatment while making sure that you are safe.
