Our Tinley Park dentists are continually updating our practice with the latest technologies, because we know that state-of-the-art treatments are comfortable, effective, and convenient for our patients. Today we are reviewing some of the specific technologies we utilize—keep reading to learn more!
The semi-annual professional cleaning is the foundation of a strong oral hygiene routine. Our dental team provides ultrasonic cleanings, which thoroughly and gently remove accumulated plaque and tartar from the patient’s smile. This is a patient-friendly alternative to traditional dental cleanings.
This technology offers a comfortable and quick way for patients to benefit from dental anesthesia. The anesthetic wand administers anesthesia at a computer-controlled, slow and steady pace—the machine is calibrated so as to prevent the patient from feeling pain.
Digital radiography allows our team to assess the underlying health and structure of your smile without relying on traditional X-rays. These digital X-rays allow our team to zoom in on images, and see a greater number of angles. We can also use the images to pre-plan dental treatments. Digital imagine exposes the patient to considerably less radiation than tradition X-ray technology.
Using intra-oral cameras our dentists are able to look, and take images of the, inside of a patient’s mouth. This technology enables patients to see precisely what is going on inside their mouths—you’ll be able to see your smile with much greater clarity than a mirror allows. Additionally, the images created using intra-oral are easily saved in your file so that we can refer to them over the years.
Dental lasers allow our team to gently and quickly improve your smile. For example, dental laser gum reshaping can improve the balance of your smile in just one appointment. Dental lasers actually seal oral tissues as they work, so they promote a quick healing process.
These are just a few of the state-of-the-art technologies that our Tinley Park dentists use to provide exceptional dental care. If you want to learn more, or schedule a personal consultation with our team, give us a call!
