This micro mini camera takes up-close photos of teeth and soft tissue, that can be projected onto our computer screens, allowing the patient to see what the doctor sees. With this ability to view dental needs clearly, the patient and dental team can make informed oral health decisions.
Digital radiography is a form of imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional radiographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation is used to produce an image of similar contrast and quality when compared to conventional radiography.
TOOTH DECAY DETECTION SYSTEM
The Diagnodent is a light energy omitting system that aids in early diagnosis of tooth decay on the chewing surfaces of teeth. It utilizes light energy of a defined wavelength to help detect demineralized tooth tissue without x-ray exposure.
NITROUS OXIDE & OXYGEN
Inhalation sedation utilizing nitrous oxide-oxygen has been a primary technique in the management of dental fears and anxieties for more than 150 years and remains so today. Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen better known as “laughing gas” is a colorless and odorless blend of two gases. It is nonaddictive, mild, easily taken, then quickly and totally eliminated by the body. You will remain fully conscious, keeping all natural reflexes when breathing nitrous oxide and oxygen. When inhaled, it is absorbed by the body and has a calming effect. Normal breathing completely eliminates nitrous oxide and oxygen from the body. When the appointment is over, you will be free of any effects of the nitrous oxide and oxygen.

Blood Pressure Screening
The American Heart Association recommends that ALL individuals including children and teenagers have their blood pressure checked at least once per year. Your adult blood pressure should be less than 120/ 80.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland under the Adam’s apple. The main purpose of the thyroid gland is to help regulate a person’s metabolism. Dental professionals can play an important role in detecting nodules and enlargement of the thyroid gland. One advantage for the dental clinician is that having the patient in a supine position allows the thyroid to protrude, thereby making it easier to evaluate.
The American Dental Association recommends an oral exam during your routine dental visit to screen for oral cancer. During an oral exam, your dentist looks over the inside of your mouth to check for red or white patches or mouth sores. The screening looks for cancer before a person has any symptoms. This type of exam can help find cancer at an early stage. When abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat.
