Our Air Techniques intraoral camera is a great tool for helping patients discover their own unique oral health story. The camera-tipped wand fits comfortably past the lips, and the high-resolution images it captures will be immediately viewable on a monitor in the operatory. By using this visual aid, Dr. Carter can point out specific areas of damage, explain treatment options in clearer detail, and provide plenty of high-quality patient education.
X-rays have been an important part of dentistry for many years – after all, there’s a lot going on underneath the surface of your smile that can’t be seen by the naked eye. Our team has chosen to invest in DEXIS digital radiography so that we can maximize the comfort and effectiveness of this important diagnostic process. Unlike traditional film, digital X-rays are available for viewing immediately and don’t require any darkroom development. The amount of radiation exposure is also greatly reduced by up to 80%.
Instead of relying on traditional dental tools that often make patients nervous, we’re proud to utilize our hard and soft tissues whenever possible for filling placement, periodontal disease therapy, and more. These state-of-the-art lasers come with many valuable benefits. Treatments are able to progress faster, comfort is improved, and patients recover more quickly with only minimal post-operative symptoms.
Identifying tooth decay in its earliest, most harmless stages is an important goal for our team, which is why we use the Spectra Caries Detection Aid here in Topton. This tool uses fluorescence technology in order to reveal weakened tooth enamel and suspicious areas of decay-causing plaque, even in tricky, hard-to-reach areas. As a result, Dr. Carter is able to provide smaller cavities and preserve more healthy dental structure over the years for his valued patients.
