Dr. Davidson uses the laser scanner to find cavities in their very beginning stages. Often, a tiny cavity was not noticed on X-rays or with visual examination. But with today's lasers, even the smallest cavity can be observed for restoration with a virtually invisible filling. This technology also provides accurate diagnoses. Previously, pain may have been attributed to other problems that would result in unnecessary treatment. We can easily identify decay and restore your smile to a healthy one!
Isolite is a new technology that combines a suction device with a powerful light. It eliminates the need for a bulky rubber dam, while providing the necessary dry field for modern dentistry. The continual use of the suction device "vacuums" any debris in the oral cavity and prevents it from being swallowed. Saliva can also be removed in this way, giving the patient relief from gagging from saliva build-up. This device also allows you to avoid the fatigue of holding your mouth wide open. The very bright light that it produces helps the doctor to be more accurate and allows the procedure to move along more quickly. As a result, patients spend about a third less time in the dental chair.
We can show you your new smile before any treatment begins with cosmetic imaging. With this amazing technology, we can reshape your gums and teeth, add or lighten teeth, and add missing teeth to capture your beautiful new smile. Patients are pleased to know in advance how gorgeous their smiles can be.
We use state-of-the-art digital X-rays, including a panoramic X-ray that can capture both the upper and lower jaws in just one image! By simply placing a digital sensor in your mouth, we can view the entire interior of your mouth on our computer screen immediately. There is 75% less radiation, generally only one X-ray necessary, and no chemicals that can harm the environment are used in the process.
The intra-oral camera lets you work together with Dr. Davidson in finding out what teeth need work and which are just fine. This amazing miniature video camera displays a close-up picture of all your teeth. You will be pleased to take part and feel confident about all the work that needs to be done.
The use of a custom-made mouthguard will help prevent the loss of most
teeth due to injury and trauma while participating in sports. Each year in
the U.S. alone, nearly 5 million teeth are lost during sports due to a lack
of or inadequate protection. One-size-fits-all mouthguards often impede an
athlete's best performance, as they do not allow for proper breathing.
The American Dental Association recommends wearing custom mouthguards for the following sports: Acrobatics, basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, handball, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, shotputting, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer, squash, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weight lifting, wrestling.
