With advanced technology, dentistry has become a better experience for both patients and dentists. At AV Dental Wellness Group, we use many diagnostic and treatment tools at our office in Lancaster, CA, to give you the best dental care. Our experienced dentist is adept at using these latest technologies. Through their expertise, they can help you achieve a healthy smile.
Here are a few of the dental technology devices that we use at the AV Dental Wellness Group office:
- DEXIS® CariVu Cavity Detection
Decay can be insidious and may hide in places that dentists could miss even with a regular exam or X-ray. In such cases, DEXIS® CariVu cavity and crack detection can find those issues efficiently and accurately. The DEXIS CariVu caries detection device uses a digital sensor that transilluminates a tooth with light, exposing the tooth structure. This allows the fixing of such minor problems at the earliest time, saving time as well as money that would have been spent if the issue was allowed to progress.
A dental X-ray is a part of all regular dental treatments. This specialized imaging technology is used to find hidden cavities and help identify dental issues like abscessed teeth, dental tumors, cysts, etc. Emitting very low radiation, a dental X-ray helps make the procedure much safer and precise.
An intraoral camera is a wand-like device with a camera attached to its tip. It provides an HD view of your mouth on a computer screen. With its help, the dentist can easily look into your mouth and analyze your teeth and gums to detect cavities, gum diseases, cysts, etc.
- Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
After the scaling and root planing procedures, the dentist will utilize laser therapy to remove the soft tissues. The high-intensity laser will instantly vaporize the decayed tissues and also seal the wound deep inside it. The whole process is simple, less invasive, and painless.
Dental technology used in diagnostics and treatment has made dentists’ jobs easier by allowing them to make precise and well-informed diagnoses and perform more efficient treatments. For patients, this means their oral health is better addressed and maintained, making them expect fewer dental problems in the future.
