Early Cavity Detection
Many people don't realize they have a cavity until the tooth hurts, at which point it has become seriously decayed. Many dental offices don't have the technology to locate decay before the patient brings it to their attention. However, Pleasant Dental has invested in state-of-the-art technology that lets us diagnose tooth decay very early, before it begins to spread. Our high-tech imaging system lets us take precise, accurate readings of your teeth, and locate even the smallest cavities before they begin to cause serious damage.
Natural-looking white fillings are created to match the color of your teeth. White fillings are used to correct the same damage or decay a metal amalgam filling would correct, but white fillings provide a more natural look. They are placed by first removing the decayed portion of the tooth. Then, Dr. Albaghdadi will etch the tooth so that the white filling material will bond to the tooth better. After, a bonding agent is brushed onto the tooth, followed by several layers of the composite white filling material. Once the decayed tooth is filled with the white filling material, a special light is used to harden and bond the white filling to your tooth. After the tooth has been hardened, it is polished and shaped to match the rest of your teeth and your bite. In order to have your next tooth reparation performed with a white filling, or to have your old metal amalgam fillings replaced with white composite fillings, simply contact us!
Our dental office utilizes the most advanced technologies, including:
- Digital X-Rays – This machine is just like the classic film x-rays you grew up with. Our digital x-ray machine takes high-quality photos of your teeth, checking for possible diseases and tooth growth.
- 3D Dental Diagnostic X-Rays – This kind of x-ray takes panoramic images of your mouth, meaning we can see your mouth as a whole in one photo and offer you the best diagnostic care possible!
- CBCTs (Cone Beam Scans) – A CBCT machine is used when more detail is needed to be seen than can be done with a digital x-ray. This machine shows the definition of your teeth, tissues, nerves and facial bones in one scan.
- Soft Tissue Lasers – This laser allows for the highest level of precision and care when we need to cut through tissue during surgery. It works quickly and carefully, ensuring that each surgery is completed with total accuracy.
- Electrosurgery Technology – Our electrosurgery systems aid in sterilizations of root canals, whitening procedures and gingival curettage surgical procedures.
- Intraoral Cameras – Our high-tech intraoral cameras are used to show each of our patients the insides of their mouths, a way more effective option than a mirror.
