Our Dental Technology in Marriottsville, MD
We want our patients to experience the difference technology provides in their dental care. The technology we offer to our patients in-office includes:
Cone-beam Computed Tomography takes digital x-rays of the mouth. Compared to other dental x-rays, CBCT scans are much more detailed because they take pictures as they rotate around a patient. CBCT scans show the teeth, gums, and jaw as well as the nerves and blood vessels within the mouth. We use CBCT scans to identify gum infections, tooth decay, oral cancer, and TMJ problems.
As a modern orthodontic alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign offers effective treatment for patients with crooked teeth. Invisalign aligners are clear and removable, which means they offer discreet and simple treatment. In addition, patients can remove their aligners to eat and drink without restrictions. Invisalign treatment is also typically faster than treatment with traditional braces.
Digital X-rays and Impressions
Traditional dental x-rays emit a high level of radiation. Digital x-rays today are much safer and emit at least 80 percent less radiation, which is safe for dentists and patients alike. Furthermore, traditional dental impressions use a messy putty that can be uncomfortable. Digital dental impressions are quick and do not require long periods of discomfort, unlike physical putty impressions.
Our office uses a soft-tissue dental laser, which effectively treats the gums. With laser dentistry, we can address a gummy smile, provide gum grafting services, or remove infected gum tissue. In addition, dental lasers are safe to use and provide immediate care. Another added benefit of dental lasers is that they provide painless treatment without the need for sutures or loud dental drills.
