Innovative Technology for Advanced Care
No doubt, you’ve noticed how quickly technology seems to change and improve these days. Well, technology in the world of dentistry is just as dynamic, but our team at Rubal Dentistry diligently keeps up with the industry’s most innovative devices and techniques to ensure that you and your family receive the best possible care every time you visit us. Want to learn more about our technology? Just keep reading the information below!
In such a small space, some areas of the mouth can be challenging to see. That’s where our small intraoral cameras go in and capture clear images for both you and our dentists to see on our chairside TV monitors. This technology also enables us to show you any problem areas and educate you about your oral health. That way, you can make more informed, more confident treatment decisions.
In years past, X-rays required time and harsh chemicals to develop, but now we use digital technology to collect all the information we need to see your oral structures. Not only are the images available basically instantaneously, but they are far more comfortable for the patient. In fact, you can put your mind at ease knowing that you will be exposed to 90 percent less radiation compared to traditional X-rays and this technology is better for the environment!
Soft Tissue Laser
Believe it or not, sometimes the trouble with a smile has nothing to do with teeth. The gum tissue can become infected or create a “gummy” appearance. Dr. Rubal can use our precise soft tissue laser to treat these issues, but what makes this device truly amazing is that it involves very little bleeding or discomfort for the patient. In fact, many times, local anesthetic and sutures aren’t needed at all.
Cavity Detection System
When cavities are just barely beginning to form, they can be difficult to spot with the naked eye even for someone who’s highly trained. With our CariVue cavity detector, we can identify areas where decay has started to affect your tooth. As a result, we are able to treat the area sooner and use more conservative measures to eliminate decay before it has the chance to cause major problems down the road.
