Dental Technology

In addition to making dental treatment more efficient and effective, advancements in dental technology also improve your experience as a patient. Whether they’re saving you time, keeping you comfortable, or giving you the smile of your dreams, our state-of-the-art technologies will completely change the way you think about going to the dentist.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays are a fast and comfortable way for us to assess your dental needs. They’re safe enough to be used during pregnancy, and some studies have found that they emit up to 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays. With no chemical processing needed, digital x-rays are a good choice for your smile and the environment, too.

X-rays are commonly used in dental exams of patients of all ages, because many problems with the teeth and surrounding tissues cannot be seen by the naked eye. An x-ray is needed to reveal:

  • Small areas of decay between teeth or below existing restorations
  • Deep cavities
  • Infections in the jaw bones
  • Deep gum disease
  • Abscesses or cysts
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Some types of tumors

Intraoral Camera

Like digital x-rays, digital photographs with our intraoral camera are a useful diagnostic and patient education tool. This camera shows you what we see during your exam and helps us guide you through your diagnosis and treatment options. It also allows us to visualize more and diagnose issues we might not have been able to see without the up-close view that it gives us.

It also illuminates your mouth from the inside, making treatments shadowless and more efficient. Best of all, the Isolite system completely eliminates the need for cotton rolls and rinse breaks. Come in today and experience the difference.

Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are made of a mercury-free composite material that can be closely matched to your other healthy teeth. They are virtually undetectable to the eye, and because they can be bonded directly to the surface of your teeth, they often leave behind more healthy tooth structure than traditional silver fillings.

Porcelain Veneers

veneers

Porcelain veneers are an excellent cosmetic solution for teeth that are chipped, misshapen, or too discolored for traditional whitening. Veneers are thin, ceramic casings that are bonded to the front side of your teeth to give your smile a beautiful, more uniform appearance. Veneers are also a great alternative to braces for teeth that are widely spaced or overlapped.

TMJ/TMD Treatment

If your jaw aches when you open wide or chew something tough, you could be suffering from TMJ Disorder, or TMD. TMD is a jaw disorder that causes frequent pain in the teeth, jaw, and neck. Other symptoms include chronic headaches, earaches, tooth sensitivity, and persistent jaw clicking or locking. Dr. Mendez can determine the cause of your TMJ pain by taking x-rays and performing a thorough examination of your bite, jaw joint, and facial muscles. Depending on the cause, he’ll then help you find the treatment plan that’s right for you.
