Reshaping Worn Teeth and Uneven Gums
Imagine having dental x-rays taken using up to 90% less radiation! Now we can. We have invested in this technology because it safely provides diagnostic x-rays without exposing you to unnecessary larger amounts of radiation.
Only few Dental Offices offer this technology to their patients.
As soon as the x-ray is taken, it provides instant digital, computerized x-ray that appears on the computer monitor. You are asked to participate in your diagnosis by looking at the x-rays with Dr. Upadhyay. Step up to the computer monitor, and see what
Dr. Upadhyay uses computerized technology tools to colorize, zoom-in, reverse the colors, and blow up the x-ray image to show you areas of concern. If seeing is believing, then digital x-rays will provide you with confidence in your diagnosis.…and because your x-rays were taken with up to 90% less radiation, you won’t glow in the dark!
Digital Intra-oral Camera Photography
As part of your examination, we take intra-oral pictures of your teeth. This helps us to see decay, broken fillings, and cracked teeth. You see what Dr. Upadhyay sees as
she takes a video tour of your mouth.
All the pictures and x-rays are displayed in your chart. These images provide permanent documentation of your mouth, allowing us to refer to older images, and compare one exam to another. We can also attach these images to your insurance claim and submit the claim electronically.
Many think they cannot change what mother-nature has provided. Not true! Closing gaps is one of the most dramatic changes we can perform for patients.
There are times when
traditional braces is needed to help correct major tooth position problems, by physically moving teeth together. But, in many minor cases, we can avoid
unsightly braces by using Invisalign®
or porcelain veneers to correct this type of
minor cosmetic problems.
We close the spaces between teeth, and reshape other adjacent teeth, to create a functional and esthetic resulta beautiful SMILE!
Laser Gum Treatments for Gum Disease
Dr. Upadhyay and his Dental
hygienists are specially trained to use dental soft
tissue lasers. Less than 1% of dental offices
provide this service for patients in need of
moderate to advanced gum treatment. It also finds
use in the treatment of canker sores, and all soft
tissue related dental work.
Laser treatment may offer benefits not available with conventional treatment. Benefits during treatment include the reduced need for anesthesia; a noticeable reduction in pain and bleeding; the elimination of bacteria, leading to the lessening of continued gum infection; the decreased need for post-operative medication; and less inflammation/swelling after treatment.
If you are one of the many patients with moderate to advanced gum disease, you may be facing surgical treatment from a Periodontist. Soft tissue laser treatment, when provided with conservative tissue management,
may keep you OUT of the Periodontist’s office.
Dental lasers have been
extensively used in various surgical applications
with predictable success. The laser is the most
versatile instrument ever available to dentist,
requiring little or no anesthesia.
The ability of the laser to kill bacteria in periodontal pockets has enormous potential, not only as a means of arresting the progression of gum disease, but as a fast, and simple means to keep the bacteria under control, without the need for antibiotics.
