The Laser Scanner Finds Ultrasmall Cavities Years Earlier
Have you ever had a dentist discover a cavity and insert a huge filling, and wondered why the filling is so immense if the cavity wasn't there just six months before? The cavity was there six months before – it just wasn't large enough to be detected on X-rays, and it wasn't visible to the dentist yet. The laser scanner reveals cavities years earlier, when the tiny cavity can be removed and repaired with a small, unnoticeable, bonded filling. Sometimes patients speak of tooth sensitivity, or mild to severe pain, yet X-rays and examination cannot easily locate the source. The laser scanner can identify previously undetected decay and, once revealed, allow us to remove the discomfort and leave you with a healthy smile.

Senior Dental Care is Different
Just as our bodies transition as we advance in age, our teeth and gums do also. Decades of plaque buildup, as well as drinking coffee, tea, or using tobacco, can make teeth become dark. Ask us about procedures that can treat these issues. Reduced saliva flow is sometimes a side effect of certain medications. There are products that can ease this condition. Your fillings are aging, too, which can lead to weakening or cracking. Regular check-ups will allow us to stay on top of your existing fillings. Gum disease and root decay can be prevalent in seniors. Daily cleaning and good nutrition are vital for healthy gums. If your gums become red, begin to bleed, or your teeth start to feel loose, contact us immediately.

Do You Have Lighter Sedation Needs?We also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas). This sedation is inhaled through a mask that allows you to draw in the medication and induces a state of peace. Local anesthetic will be administered in connection with nitrous oxide to halt pain in most cases.
