Digital X-rays

X-rays are exposed to find out what can not be seen clinically.They were traditionally being processed in a darkroom full of chemicals, and examining the resulting films on a special light board. Digital radiography eliminates this time conusming tideous process. Now, a sensor placed in the mouth with an x-ray sensitive chip which catches and shows a highly detailed image of your mouth on computer screen in real time. There is 50%-90% less radiation exposure than with traditional x-ray techniques. The resulting image can be digitally manupulated to get the best diagnostic information quickly and efficiently.

It's More Comfortable and Convenient

Waterlase Dentistry uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures – without the heat, vibration and pressure associated with the dental drill. With many procedures, it’s possible to use less anesthetic, and often no anesthetic at all.Your Waterlase Dentist can often get you in and out of the dentist chair faster, since it’s less likely that you’ll need an injection – research shows that the vast majority of patients don’t. It’s nice to avoid that shot, isn’t it? Not using anesthetic can allow your dentist to perform procedures that used to require more than one visit in a single appointment. Also, a Waterlase Dentist can perform procedures that once meant an additional trip to a specialist, saving you even more time.

It's More Precise

Lasers have long been the standard of care in medicine for many surgical and cosmetic procedures such as LASIK, wrinkle and hair removal and many others. Waterlase® was approved for hard tissue procedures in 1998 and since has been cleared for numerous additional dental procedures. Thousands of dentists around the world have performed thousands of procedures with less need for shots, anesthesia, drills and post-op numb lips.

 

Is Autoclaving the Only Way to Sterilize Dental Equipment?

Our office uses various methods to sterilize and disinfect. All dental instruments are cleaned and then sterilized after each patient's visit by methods that kill the AIDS virus and other microscopic organisms capable of causing disease. Common acceptable sterilization methods include an autoclave that uses steam under pressure, dry heat in an oven like environment and chemical vapor sterilization.
Disinfection procedures are used on surfaces and equipment that cannot be removed for cleaning and sterilization, such as counter tops, drawer handles, x-ray unit heads and light handles. Disinfection is done in the treatment room between patients to assure that the room is clean for each patient. For your protection, we adhere to infection control procedures known as "universal precautions." We use the same infection control measures for every patient.

We are always open to discuss our infection control procedures. Please, ask us if you have any questions.     (301) 439-3917.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smile, you’re on Intraoral Camera!


A tiny new intraoral camera allows patients to see the insides of their mouth by projecting the image on a TV monitor. For many patients, this is the first time they’re had a clear view inside their mouth. And what they’re seeing is not always a pretty picture. Many patients are shocked by their oral condition.

And image can be worth a thousand words when motivating patients to improve their oral health. Once an image is projected on the monitor, the dentist can easily discuss any problems with the patient and explain the diagnosis.

Because oral conditions can be magnified, this method provides better visibility than direct vision. Once on the screen the image can also be frozen,, rotated, saved in the computer, printed, or sent electronically for billing purposes.

Another common use of the camera is helping patients make cosmetic decisions about their teeth. The image of a patient’s teeth can be projected onto the screen and manipulated to show how the person’s smile might look after treatment. Patients can get a good idea of what the recommended procedure will look like before it’s done.
