Continue reading below to learn about some of the advanced components we incorporate into our treatment!

Early Detection of Tooth Decay Using DIAGNOdent

Our Lincoln family dentistry now offers a new diagnostic method that can more accurately define caries in teeth – DIAGNOdent Laser Caries Detector. This unique service can detect caries at the earliest stage by projecting a safe, painless laser onto the tooth’s surface. If decay is present, an alarm will go off. The DIAGNOdent Laser Caries Detector is over 80% more accurate in detecting even the smallest lesions that don’t appear on X-rays and can detect decay in even the hardest-to-reach places, like the grooves and pits in your molars! The DIAGNOdent Laser Caries Detector boasts high patient acceptance and satisfaction with its quick, simple, and painless nature. It is an excellent dentistry tool, as early detection of decay enables us to better preserve and protect your teeth.

Digital Radiography (X-Rays)

This is an advanced diagnostic tool we could never practice without. Most offices still use traditional dental x-rays. We have made the commitment to provide a better and safer alternative with dental digital radiography. Digital radiography has been shown to be a more effective form of diagnosis. With better resolution, dramatically reduced radiation to the patient, and the ability to zoom into parts of the image, digital dental X-ray is more patient-friendly and doctor-friendly too. Add that to the ability to archive in original quality, and to send perfect digital copies, and you will begin to see how dental digital radiography is a state-of-the-art must for dental treatment.

Dental Ultrasonic Scaler

In order to provide the best management and prevention of periodontal disease, we use the dental ultrasonic scaler. This device can remove stains on teeth as well as tough calculus, also known as tartar. Our dental ultrasonic scaler is top-notch when it comes to a complete and comfortable teeth cleaning.

Acucam Intraoral Camera

The standard X-ray is essential in determining any dental problems you may have, and dental treatments you may need. Unfortunately, it may not reveal everything happening inside your mouth. We are proud to utilize an Acucam Intraoral Camera in our Lincoln office. An Acucam Intraoral Camera is a small hand-held device, similar to the size and design of a dental mirror. It can project a high quality, high-resolution image of your teeth onto a monitor so you can see the problem in a magnified version and we can see how to best correct the issue. The camera can also identify problems that may not be detected by more general means of examination, including cracks in your fillings and fractured teeth. Overall, an Acucam Intraoral Camera allows you to make better decisions regarding your dental treatment, as you can see the same things we see.
