Modern technology has allowed us to more quickly and accurately identify the underlying factors and reduce the amount of time you spend in our office and limit your discomfort from dental pain.
Using compressed air to precisely aim at your tooth can remove small cavities and restore the area with composite material before the cavities cause deeper pain and discomfort, prep your teeth for upcoming procedures such as bonding or veneers, removes common tooth stains, and repairs small imperfections in your teeth. With minimal noise and no application to the actual tooth, air abrasion is perfect for children or others who have tooth sensitivity.
Using a rotating x-ray machine enables you and Dr. Hebert to see all of your teeth in a digital 3-D image. The Cone Beam CT (CBCT) is used for gaining a better understanding of the structure of your teeth, roots, and jaw to plan for dental implants or extracting wisdom teeth. It can also look for and detect any infection that may be laying underneath the surface that is naked to the visible eye.
Naturally replace missing teeth with a secure, permanent solution that won’t decay. Dental implants allow you to have a nearly indistinguishable restorative smile with the freedom of not worrying about a gappy smile or placing in dentures. Restore a single tooth or multiple teeth with dental implants that will last you a lifetime.
A physical impression of your mouth and bite is taken first and then digitized into a 3-D model. Digital impressions provide a more accurate representation of your mouth and bite for crown placement.
See through the doctor’s eyes with a small camera that shows the condition of your mouth. The intraoral camera gives you a first-hand look at what has been causing you pain and discomfort or what Dr. Hebert is able to address, if caught early, preventing it from being problematic.
