In the past, dentists would use film X-rays to be able to examine the area of the mouth below the gumline, where the roots of teeth are. This method required processing film, using chemicals that were harmful for the environment, and didn’t produce the clearest images. Today, we utilize fast, safe, and crystal-clear digital X-rays to be able to diagnose oral health problems that aren’t visible to the naked eye, like impacted wisdom teeth, infections, and interproximal cavities.
Diode Laser Dentistry
Using our advanced soft tissue laser, we’re able to safely, precisely, and quickly treat lip and tongue ties. The laser itself creates a concentrated beam of light that can alter oral tissues, removing overgrown or thickened tissue that keeps your little one from being able to easily maneuver their lips and tongue. Because it cauterizes the area on-contact, there’s minimal bleeding and pain, as well as a reduced risk of an infection developing after the procedure.
