Digital X-rays with Less Radiation
With digital technology, there is no waiting time for developing an X-ray and no chemicals used that harm the environment. It is an immediate process – as soon as a sensor is placed in your mouth, the image is downloaded to our computer screen. Just one image captures both upper and lower dental arches. There is less radiation produced – 75% less than with the original method of X-rays.
Relief from Numbness
After receiving anesthesia for treatment, often the numbness continues for another 3 to 5 hours. Patients can feel uncomfortable with “fat lips” when speaking or eating for this prolonged time. But you don’t have to have that feeling after a procedure is completed. With OraVerse™, in only 15 minutes your mouth can be back to normal. It is an amazing product that actually reverses the effect of the anesthesia quickly. If you don’t want to deal for hours with that numb feeling, we can take care of it for you in just minutes.
We are proud to be one of the first practices in our area to use 3-D cone beam CT digital imaging technology, with the Sirona GALILEOS ComfortPLUS. Think of this as a three dimensional X-ray that is FAR more accurate than traditional X-rays, takes much less time and does all this with much less radiation exposure. A great advantage of using ultra cone beam images when diagnosing patients and evaluating treatment options is the dentist’s ability to clearly see the patient’s anatomy in 3-D, instead of flat, two-dimensional images. This leads to much greater accuracy for all dental treatment, especially implant placement and any oral surgeries.
See What the Doctor Sees
Dr. Baker always works together with his patients, so they understand their treatment plan for their best dental health. He wants you to participate in your dental decisions and with the intra-oral camera, you can see for yourself what work needs to be done. This amazing miniature video camera produces a close-up picture of the problem teeth as well as those that are fine. You will be impressed with how this works and pleased to be a partner in the decisions that are made.
Highest Standards of Cleanliness
We care for your best health on many levels. We never take even the smallest risk when it comes to maintaining your safety. We use state-of-the-art technology to sterilize instruments after each use. Single-use tools for certain procedures are discarded after treatment. Instruments are sanitized in an autoclave that is monitored for safety and cleanliness by an outside lab. We want you to be assured that we meet or exceed all dental standards and safety procedures for each patient at every visit.
