We offer one of the latest technological advances in dentistry with digital radiography (X-rays). A wireless sensor is placed in the mouth, and a computer generates an image in 30 seconds as opposed to the general 4-6 minute wait time for images taken on dental film. These X-rays can also be enhanced on the computer and enlarged.
Not only are they friendly to the environment, they are much safer than traditional X-rays. Digital radiographs reduce radiation exposure by 90%!
The standard X-ray is essential in determining any dental problems you may have, but unfortunately, it may not reveal everything happening inside your mouth. We are proud to utilize an intraoral camera in our office.
An intraoral camera can project an image of your tooth onto a monitor, so you can see the problem in a magnified version and how we can correct the issue. It can also identify problems that may not be detected by the general means of examination, including cracks in your fillings or fractured teeth. Similar to the size and design of a dental mirror, an intraoral camera allows you to make better decisions regarding your treatment as you can see the same things we see.
Anesthetic Reversal (OraVerse®)
We understand how annoying the after-effects of dental anesthetics can be, and we’re proud to offer our patients an anesthetic reversal procedure using OraVerse®! OraVerse is the one and only product available that can reverse the effects of local dental anesthetics two times faster than normal. In addition, OraVerse reduces drooling and enables patients to smile, speak and even drink sooner than without the anesthetic reversal agent.
If desired, Dr. Clark will administer OraVerse immediately following your procedure, allowing you to return to your normal daily activities faster, while still minimizing any discomfort associated with the dental procedure performed.
