Choosing a Santa Barbara Dentist? Pay Attention to Dental Technology
Does your Santa Barbara cosmetic dentist leverage the latest in proven dental technology or does he or she seem to use tools from the dark ages? The right dental technology tools make all the difference in the world for precise and comfortable dentistry that’s conservative and minimally invasive. Great new technology tools have provided diagnostic applications that dramatically enhance a dentist’s ability to diagnose potential dental problems early. Our Santa Barbara, CA dental practice continually invests in both education and dental equipment that make your trip to the dentist as comfortable and highly effective as possible. Here are some of the dental technology tools leveraged at the office of Dr. Mark T. Weiser to make your trip to the dentist more precise, productive, and less invasive than ever.
Dental Technology at Dr. Mark T. Weiser’s Office
Here at our Santa Barbara general and cosmetic dentistry practice, we’ve invested in modern and highly effective dental technology tools in diagnostics as well as treatment. Read below for some information on some of the great tools used here in our office.
DIAGNOdent offers cutting edge diagnostic applications, including very early cavity detection, which can help you correct problems early, salvaging more of your natural tooth.
Laser dentistry can offer great benefits in several areas like gum contouring and gum surgery with the benefit of it being fast, suture-free, and pain-free. But laser dentistry also helps with periodontal disease by eradicating mouth bacteria, too.
Dental freezing is great for helping a patient stay comfortable during dental treatments but the lingering numbing can seem like it lasts forever after a procedure is complete. OraVerse reverses dental numbing much sooner through an injection given at the original numbing site.
Early detection of oral cancer is key to remission.
VELscope enables Dr. Weiser to painlessly screen for oral cancer and other bacterial and fungal infections in the mouth.
The T-Scan device helps Dr. Weiser record bite force with a much higher degree of accuracy than manual articulating paper marks to determine bite. Leveraging the T-Scan can be helpful with periodontal treatment, with TMD treatment appliances, in prosthetic dentistry, and any application where occlusal analysis is important.
Digital Radiography and Imaging:
Digital X-rays dramatically minimize radiation exposure and help with efficiency in dental offices. Dental digital imaging also saves time, is kinder to the environment, and provides efficient image sharing.
Intraoral cameras help Dr. Weiser and they help you, too, enabling you to see a full image of the inside of your mouth for treatment planning and even during dental work.
Air abrasion techniques help Dr. Weiser with fillings without drilling too much healthy tooth away as well as providing you with fast results for fillings that don’t require needles and that don’t require freezing.
Sleep Apnea Technology: WatchPat
At our Santa Barbara dental practice, we also offer help for sleep apnea with oral appliances that work as a great alternative to the CPAP machine (for mild to moderate sleep apnea sufferers) and we also offer at-home sleep disorders testing equipment, such as the WatchPat, which lets your dentist extract a sleep report from the device while you sleep at home rather than at a sleep study clinic.
