Scheduling your twice-yearly dental visits might feel like a chore, but with advanced technology and effective products, they can be simple and satisfying items to check off your list!
CBCT is the abbreviation for Cone Beam Computed Tomography, and this scanner allows us to create digital impressions and 3D models that make treatment planning more precise and comfortable. Scanning is non-invasive, painless, and eliminates the need for messy impressions.
Biolase® helps us eliminate the bacteria that cause gum disease, prepare teeth for fillings without the need for the dental drill, and remove excess gum tissue without the need for scalpels and sutures. Lasers are precision instruments that work quickly, and because they’re gentle, anesthetic is rarely necessary.
When it comes to x-rays, which require exposure to radiation, dentists operate under the ALARA principle, which stands for “As Low As Reasonably Achievable”. X-rays are essential to see things we can’t with our eyes alone, but we make every effort to reduce exposure.
You can count on advanced technology to make your visits more comfortable and convenient, but it can also empower you to make better decisions for your oral and overall health. If you’re ready to improve your oral health, contact us today!
You might think CBCT scanners and digital x-rays would suffice when it comes to collecting images of your teeth, tissues, bones, and nerves, but they’re all about what’s beneath the surface. Intraoral cameras provide us with clear images of the visible surfaces of your mouth.
Laser technology has been around for decades and used in dentistry since 1994, but they still seem futuristic and revolutionary because of their versatility and successful treatment outcomes. At Delaware Dental Solutions, we use them to provide cleanings and gum disease treatment.
Dental cleanings are usually recommended twice per year, but if you have gum disease, you may require more frequent cleanings. Laser cleanings can make fighting gum disease a breeze. To find out if we’d recommend them for you, contact us today!
If you’re in need of restorative dentistry, there’s a good chance you’ll require local anesthetic to numb your nerves throughout the procedure, and for a while afterward. But local anesthetic requires an injection, and we’d like to prevent any discomfort from the injection.
We offer toothpastes, toothbrushes, floss picks, dental floss, flossing alternatives, denture cleansers and adhesives, and mouth rinses that have been shown to effectively combat gum disease causing bacteria and enamel erosion that results in decay—without unnecessary ingredients! We love making recommendations!
