We are pleased to offer the latest X-ray technology. Our office uses state of the art Digital SironaX-ray equipment which allows us to find potential problems before they develop into costly and painful dental emergencies.
With sophisticated software, the computer generated x-ray can reveal information not previously available from a conventional x-ray machine. X-rays taken can be colorized, magnified and computer-enhanced to indicate things such as bone density.
Although every patient can benefit from the 90% decrease in radiation exposure, the digital x-ray machine offers special benefits to the dental implant patients. With the "instant" development time of the computer and its ability to view an enlarged x-ray on a computer screen at the operatory, your doctor has the ability to make sure the patients' nerves and sinuses are protected and the implants are properly seated by taking digital x-rays at various points during the procedure.
Added patient safety, more predictable treatment, much lower x-ray radiation, and immediate feedback clearly make the digital x-ray machine the x-ray technology of the future.
Oral sedation is a great option for many healthy adults our Doctors uses some very safe, gentle medication in the form of a small pill. Often patients can be comfortable sedated with just one small pill!
What is an oral sedation appointment like?
Our doctors will give you a small pill to take an hour before your appointment. Your companion will bring you to the office, where we will start monitoring your vital signs. Then we will assess whether you need any more medication. Once you are relaxing comfortably in the dental chair, we'll cover you with a warm blanket. We'll begin the dentistry once you are totally relaxed. Before you know it, the appointment will be over.
