Dentistry has changed a lot since we were kids. It’s a field that has truly benefited from the recent boom in technological discoveries. Here at Martin-Taylor Dentistry, we believe any technological dental services that make your trip to the dentist not only more beneficial to your overall dental health but also a more pleasant experience, are well worth providing.
Three dental services offered at Martin-Taylor Dentistry that may not be offered in other dental practices are Digital X-Rays, Laser Dentistry, and Conscious Sedation. We believe that along with the all the other excellent services we provide, these additional dental services offer our patients the very best dental care available.
Some of the benefits of digital x-ray images are that they are larger and can be seen immediately on a computer screen. There the images can be manipulated with contrast, zoom, and value which provide much clearer images of the tooth. Because of this, the dentist is able to show the patient right then and there what is happening with their teeth. This immediacy and clarity have made digital x-rays a powerful educational tool for the patient.
At Martin-Taylor we use a soft tissue, or diode, laser in place of a surgical knife for many procedures, such as deep cleanings, tissue surgery, to uncover an implant, or in the preparation for crowns. A laser cauterizes as it goes, reducing, if not eliminating, bleeding, and requires no stitches.
Nitrous oxide has been used in general medicine and dentistry for well over 100 years. It is an incredibly safe and effective sedation which can be used in both adults and children. For adults who have any dental phobia, nitrous oxide is a game changer.
