Here at My Dentist Muskogee, we utilize the most up-to-date technology in the field of dentistry. This way, we can diagnose and treat dental problems with the highest possible level of accuracy and effectiveness. Not to mention, our advanced dental technology makes your treatments more comfortable than ever before. Below, you can learn a little about the state-of-the-art instruments we use to make your appointments smooth and seamless.
An intraoral camera is a pen-like device with a tiny camera on the tip, which lets us take close-up photos of a particular area of your mouth. As Dr. Mehta maneuvers the camera around your mouth, you’ll be able to view these images too, since they’ll be projected onto a nearby monitor in real time. Because you’ll see exactly what Dr. Mehta sees, you’ll have a clear understanding of what’s going on inside of your mouth. If we detect any issues, you can see for yourself why we might suggest a particular course of treatment.
Many dental problems are hidden beneath the surface, which is where X-ray technology becomes a necessity. At our practice, we use completely digital X-ray technology, which captures high-resolution images of your teeth and jaws so that we can diagnose problems invisible to the naked eye. Not only do digital X-rays produce up to 90% less radiation than traditional film X-rays, but they also generate images almost instantly rather than needing to be developed in a darkroom.
No longer do you have to have a gross chunk of putty pressed against your teeth when you need a crown, veneer, or other restoration. With our iTero digital scanner, we can simply take digital impressions instead. The process becomes not only faster and more comfortable than that of traditional impressions, but it often produces much more accurate results that stand the test of time.
Patients who need gum disease therapy will be happy to know that our practice implements a soft tissue laser instead of sutures and scalpels like many other dental offices. This densely concentrated beam of light allows us to target only the infected tissue and leave the healthy tissue completely untouched. It also brings discomfort and post-op bleeding, swelling, and infection risk down to nearly zero by cauterizing the blood vessels as it works.
