These days, technology seems to make huge strides almost every day. The same can be said in the field of dentistry. To make sure that our patients get the best possible dental care, Dr. Borsky has equipped our dental office with some of the industry’s most advanced devices. These can make diagnosis faster and more comfortable and treatment more effective. To learn more about our cutting-edge technology, keep reading the information below.
At Dr. Borsky’s dental office, we believe in educating our patients. Basically, if you fully understand your oral issues, you can make more confident, informed decisions and take better care of your smile. That’s why we use Digidoc, shofu, and DSLR extraoral imaging. These intraoral cameras allow us to capture and show you images of what we see in your mouth. We’ll use these images to explain your treatment options and help you choose the one that will meet your needs.
Instead of using the outdated method of taking X-rays, we use all-digital technology to see parts of your mouth that aren’t visible to the naked eye, such as between teeth or underneath the gums’ surface. Traditional X-rays involve unnecessary exposure to radiation, but with digital ones, you don’t have to worry about that safety risk. Also, these X-rays are available almost instantaneously, allowing Dr. Borsky to diagnose oral problems much sooner.
In certain situations, such as to treat gum disease, Dr. Borsky can use a soft tissue laser to complete the necessary treatment. With this device, you won’t need to have sutures, will experience little to no discomfort or bleeding, and will have faster healing in the soft tissues. This gentle, precise technology can also be utilized without the use of a local anesthetic, making your dental experience with us much more pleasant.
Some patients feel significant stress and anxiety when it comes to dental visits. If you are one of these, Dr. Borsky and the rest of our team want to put your mind at ease. We offer oral conscious sedation to help you achieve a relaxed state during your dental appointment. As the name implies, you will still be awake throughout but you will likely not remember the details of your visit, helping you overcome any fears.
