At Westminster Dental Care, we take pride in investing in the latest dental technologies. These technologies are designed to deliver comfortable, more rapid, and in some cases, safer care.
Here are just some of the state-of-the-art tools we use:
We use digital x-rays as a diagnostic tool. You may receive digital x-rays as part of your regular examinations, emergency examinations, or as part of the preparation for a procedure. Not only are they more accurate than traditional x-rays, but they also emit less radiation, too!
Intraoral cameras are used to reveal areas of the teeth, gum, and other oral structures that digital x-rays can't show. They are a high-tech diagnostic tool that we use as part of our oral surgery planning, and more!
Cone Beam CT
Dr. McKnight uses the cone beam CT to get an in-depth view of the teeth, gums, and oral structures, with stunning detail that traditional digital x-rays cannot capture. This ultra-advanced dental technology is typically used to aid in more confident diagnoses and in dental treatment planning. Furthermore, we use this technology to produce three-dimensional images of the teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone, all in one single, convenient scan.
Our cone beam 3D imaging system is used in the planning phases for many dental services such as:
- Preventive Care
- Dental Implants
- Restorative Dentistry Services
- Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Anesthesia is a great medicinal option for pain relief, but it does come with an uncomfortable side effect - a sensation of numbness that can last hours. Fortunately, Dr. McKnight uses anesthetic reversal, a cutting-edge reversal agent designed to cut down the after-effects of anesthesia in about half the time.
This means you'll be able to comfortably talk, smile, eat, and go about your day once your procedure is finished!
Diode Dental Laser
Our dental laser is designed to painlessly treat cold sores and repair the health of the gums. It provides a wide range of benefits for all types of patients, from those who want a gentler dental experience to those who are facing advanced periodontal issues. This diode laser offers faster healing times and improved comfort both during and after treatments. In many cases, this laser technology completely eliminates the need for more invasive measures, which is great news for those with anxiety or other special healthcare needs.
