We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images. These images require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film that must be developed and then fixed in caustic and environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor and instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room. Therefore, we can see your teeth and surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact us for more details, or to make an appointment!
State-of-the-Art Sterilization Procedures
Our sterilization procedures meet or exceed the Centers for Disease Control guidelines. We heat-sterilize all hand pieces and instruments after each use. We only use ADA approved disinfectants. We use gloves, masks, eye protection and barrier covers at all times.
With an intraoral camera, we can magnify your mouth and show you exactly what weâre talking about on a computer screen. This allows you to see for yourself the crack, the stain, the gap, and the receding gum line. You need not -take only our word for it anymore.
Our patients have realized many benefits since we computerized and networked our treatment rooms. All intraoral and extraoral photography, patient records, written communication, and clinical information can be shared between the doctor and treatment areas instantly.
Making sure you get the right look, feel and function is the goal. The diagnostic wax-up model of your restored smile gives us a record of what you want so we begin the process with your results already known.
The model shows your new smile in its natural color and translucency. We also see how your new smile will improve any bite problems you may have. With the diagnostic model you are empowered to preview, give suggestions, make changes, and approve your personal âSmile Planâ before any procedures are begun. Not only can you see the excellent quality of the esthetic changes in your new smile, the model also gives you considerable assurances of feel and function.
Soft Tissue Laser
Dr. Vondra and the hygiene team are proud to utilize dentistryâs latest technological advancement â laser periodontal therapy. In restorative and cosmetic dentistry we can contour and trim gum tissue easily and comfortably with almost no discomfort. Unlike removing tissue with a scalpel, a laser doesn't cause bleeding or swelling. Having a comfortable post-operative experience is now the norm. The laser can be used in conjunction with root planing â deep cleaning around the teeth and root. This kills bacteria that causes periodontal disease. Ask any of our staff about the benefits of laser therapy.
