Air abrasion is a technique that uses a stream of tiny abrasive particles propelled by compressed air to remove tooth decay. It is a conservative, quiet, and minimally-invasive alternative to traditional drilling, as it requires less removal of healthy tooth structure.
Digital X-rays utilize electronic sensors instead of traditional film to capture images of the teeth and supporting structures. They offer numerous advantages, including reduced radiation exposure, instant image viewing, easy storage and retrieval, and the ability to enhance and manipulate images for better diagnosis.
Panoramic X-rays provide a wide and comprehensive view of the entire mouth, including the teeth, jaws, sinuses, and temporomandibular joints. These images help our team diagnose and assess impacted teeth, jaw disorders, bone abnormalities, and other dental conditions that may not be visible in traditional intraoral X-rays.
An intraoral camera is a small handheld device that captures high-resolution images of the inside of a patient’s mouth. It allows dental professionals to show patients detailed visuals of their teeth and gums, facilitating a better understanding and communication about dental conditions, treatment options, and oral hygiene practices.
Rotary endodontics involves using electrically powered instruments to perform root canal treatments. These instruments rotate at high speeds, allowing for more efficient and precise cleaning and shaping of the root canals. Rotary endodontics often results in reduced treatment time and improved outcomes for patients undergoing root canal therapy.
Our team uses a special UV light as a diagnostic tool to detect early signs of oral cancer. This light causes certain tissues to fluoresce differently, making abnormal cells or lesions more visible. By utilizing this technology, Dr. Ford can potentially identify suspicious areas that may require further evaluation or biopsy, aiding in the early detection and treatment of oral cancer.
