At Evergreen Dental Group, Drs. Sprout, Fitzgerald, Keeler, Gordon, and Bergeron have equipped our office with the latest technology to maximize the comfort and effectiveness of your dental care. One example is with digital x-rays, which greatly improve precision in treatment planning. Intraoral cameras allow us to fully involve you in your treatment plan. Those are just two examples -- patients from Evergreen, Golden, Idaho Springs, Conifer, and Bailey benefit from our high-tech approach. Schedule an appointment with the high-tech dentist today!
When your restorative treatment plan requires a deeper, more comprehensive look at your mouth and oral structures than can be provided with a digital x-ray, the cone beam scanner produces a clear, three-dimensional image of your teeth, nerves, soft tissues, and bone all at once. At Evergreen Dental Group, the cone beam scanner is especially useful for more precise treatment planning before dental implant placement and other procedures requiring extreme precision and preparation.
The soft tissue laser reduces discomfort during oral surgery, minimizes bleeding, and eliminates the need for stitches and sutures. When used during gum disease treatment, it is especially beneficial that the soft tissue laser disinfects as it blasts through harmful bacteria -- treating the original problem and also reducing the risk of reinfection. With a number of applications, the soft tissue laser makes for far more comfortable oral procedures.
Many people are afraid of the dentist due to a fear of needles. The Wand doesn’t look like what you’re used to receiving anesthesia through, and it doesn’t feel that way either. The Wand is a computer-assisted anesthesia system that allows our team to administer anesthesia without any discomfort at all. It works at a low pressure and rate that is just below the pain threshold to greatly reduce anxiety associated with anesthesia injections. You can relax knowing your dentist uses computer-assisted anesthesia.
X-rays are an invaluable tool in dentistry that allow your dentist to look below the visible surface and intercept decay, infection, extra teeth, and other potential oral issues. Current radiography technology allows us to capture this in-depth look more effectively and safely than ever with digital x-rays. Images are clearer and reduce radiation exposure by as much as 90% compared to traditional x-rays. In case we need to refer your care to an outside specialist, the images are also easily transferred between offices.
The best treatment plans involve you throughout every step of the process, but it can be difficult to communicate certain information without actually showing you what is going on in your mouth. With the intraoral camera, we can do just that. It is a small, handheld tool that’s tipped with a tiny camera. Your dentist uses the intraoral camera to capture images that are then transmitted to a small screen at your chair side.
It may not be easy to imagine what your smile will look like after any given cosmetic treatment -- but using the latest technology, the Evergreen Dental Group team can actually provide a very close approximation of how your results will transform your smile with digital imaging. It’s a preview of your future dazzling teeth and gums, achieved with advanced software that applies the proposed changes to a digital image of your smile.
