Many of our dentists have over 30 years of experience, and in order to keep providing the highest level of care possible, they constantly introduce new technology into our dental office. Thanks to this commitment to progress, we’re able to consistently improve the speed, comfort, and accuracy of our care to deliver gorgeous results in record time. You’ll be amazed at how much we can accomplish in a single appointment thanks to the technology below. To come experience true 21st-century dentistry for yourself, give us a call today.
We use X-rays every single day in our dental office because they allow us to examine the smile beyond what we can see with the naked eye, enabling us to catch potential cavities, infections, and even cancer that might be hidden below the gum line. Fortunately, we only use digital X-rays, which are faster, sharper, and safer than traditional film—they reduce radiation exposure by 90%, which is great news for both our patients and our team!
Camera technology is evolving even faster than cellphones and computers, so now, your checkups will involve our team using a small, handheld device to take high-resolution pictures of your teeth and gums we can instantly show you on a nearby monitor. This approach makes it much easier for us to spot potential problems during their earliest stages, plus you’ll finally be able to get a clear look at your smile. This will help you better understand your oral health and ensure you’re always on the same page as your dentist.
Our cone beam CT scanner takes dental X-rays to the next level, allowing us to basically capture a CAT scan of a patient’s entire head that enables us to see all of their dental anatomy in a single image. These scans reveal much more detail than a traditional X-ray, and we often use them to plan for more involved procedures like dental implant placement so we can guarantee a smooth treatment and easy recovery.
Dental impressions allow us to create a working model of a patient’s teeth and bite so we can design their treatment and personalize it down to the smallest detail. Rather than making them by having a patient bite into dental putty, we instead scan the mouth with a small device that generates a highly-detailed impression in a matter of minutes. There’s no mess, no gagging, and it helps us provide even better care than before.
Laser dentistry has completely changed the way we treat the gums here at Little Rock Family Dental Care. Now, instead of eliminating gum disease using incisions and sutures like in the past, we can instead utilize a small laser to quickly and painlessly remove harmful bacteria and buildup from deep below the gum line. We can even use this instrument to provide cosmetic gum lifts to correct a “gummy” smile in a single appointment!
