Improved Oral Care with Innovative Technology
As commercial gadgets continue to evolve and improve, we see enhancements in our daily lives. The same is essentially true in dentistry. At Archway Dental, we use innovative devices to make your dental visits more comfortable, more efficient, and more effective. From providing faster diagnosis to reducing discomfort in treating cavities, and much more, we utilize the advanced technology listed below to create a better dental experience.
Taking X-rays is an essential part of your checkup appointment. After all, they allow Dr. Parmar to make sure that there are no problems underneath the gums’ surface. Compared to their traditional counterparts, our digital X-rays have many benefits. Not only are digital X-rays better for the environment, they involve smaller sensors and emit far less radiation, making the process of capturing the images much more comfortable and safe for the patient.
Our team at Archway Dental prioritizes empowering you to make better decisions for your oral health. We accomplish this in part by enabling you to see exactly what we see. Basically, we take real-time images of the inside of your mouth and show them to you on screens located next to the treatment chair. Then, Dr. Parmar explains the problem clearly and provides your treatment options. That way, you can make more informed choices and feel confident moving forward.
Digital Impression System
Getting impressions taken for a custom restoration or oral appliance used to be unpleasant for patients. Not anymore! Our team uses a digital impression system that is much more comfortable without putty. It just takes a quick scan of the inside of your mouth with no discomfort at all. We’ve also found that this technology tends to collect information more accurately, meaning that you’re more likely to have the right fit the first time around.
Cavity Detection System
When they first start to form, cavities can be tricky to spot, even to the trained eye. That’s why Dr. Parmar uses an advanced cavity detection system when she examines your teeth at your checkup appointment. This device illuminates areas where decay has started to develop, enabling us to address cavities long before they become a serious, painful problem for your smile. When we intervene early on, we can use milder treatments to keep your teeth healthy and free from infection.
Although many dental offices use air-driven handpieces to perform certain dental procedures, Dr. Parmar uses an electric handpiece. Why? We find that we are able to make more precise preparations, saving more healthy tooth enamel and making the process more comfortable for our patients. They also appreciate that our electric handpieces tend to involve less vibration and high-pitched sounds, which can make some feel anxious.
