With 75% less radiation than traditional film X-rays, digital X-rays will capture images of your entire mouth that are immediately accessible on our computers. So not only is there significantly less radiation exposure, the entire process is much faster. Since no film development is required, there are no chemical wastes to pollute our environment.
At your last visit to the dentist, you had no sign of a cavity. Now, just six months later, you're wondering how you have a large cavity in such a short time. In reality, the cavity already existed – it just wasn't detectable on X-rays or with visual examination. We use the laser scanner to identify even the smallest cavity, when it can be repaired with a very small, invisible filling. This technology allows Dr. Hagen to accurately pinpoint the cause of sensitivity and pain, allowing more of your natural tooth to remain intact.
You want your smile to be the cleanest for great oral health, and we employ the Piezo Scaler™ to give your teeth and gums a thorough cleaning. It quickly removes plaque and calculus with high-frequency vibrations. It works even faster than the usual scaling instruments, and the final results? You will feel like your teeth have never been cleaner!
It's unbelievable, but one American dies each hour from oral cancer. These statistics have not changed in several decades. With the latest technology, oral cancer can be located and easily cured while still in the early stages. There is even a 90% cure rate when diagnosed and treated early. We are excited to offer our patients VELscope oral cancer detection. This fast and easy exam is highly effective. Using the special light, any unusual tissues can be identified. We highly recommend an exam with the VELscope, as it could be lifesaving!
