Digital X-rays

Our Dexis Digital X-ray system provides greatly improved diagnostic capabilities to our patients, and reduces their exposure to radiation by 90%.

This technology lets us see problems in seconds rather than waiting 5 - 10 minutes for traditional X-ray films to develop. The images of your teeth are instantly displayed on the screen and can be enhanced and magnified to show conditions that would otherwise be invisible. This lets us treat problems sooner, while they are small, rather than wait until they have grown big enough to be visible on the little films. And since we don’t use any chemicals that have to be disposed of, it is good for our environment, too.

A standard film X-ray is only 1 3/16 inches wide and may cause poor diagnostics

Preventive Care Services

E
ducating our patients about their dental health is one of our highest priorities. We invest time with each person to determine the best way to serve them.

Our office’s dental health maintenance program is one of our proudest ongoing accomplishments. Our hygienists consistently monitor your teeth and gums for any signs of pending issues. We offer many options for treatment.

You’ve probably been hearing a lot about periodontal disease in the news. Medical science is making new discoveries routinely that link periodontal problems with many health conditions. It’s been found that gum disease can cause heart problems and pre-term labor in pregnant women.

Early periodontal disease does not cause pain and can go unnoticed. However, early detection and treatment are extremely important. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

Periodontal disease occurs when plaque builds up and irritates the gums, leading to inflammation and infection. This earliest stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If left untreated, it can progress to the bone, causing periodontitis. Signs of periodontal disease may include:

• Sore and/or bleeding gums
• Tooth movement
• Changes in your bite
• Bad breath or persistent bad taste, or
• Gums that have pulled away from your teeth

In the later stages, the bone and soft tissues that support the teeth are destroyed; the teeth become loose and fall out.

For these reasons, it’s important to schedule regular dental visits, and to brush and floss between your teeth daily. We strive to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime with the following preventive services:
