Digital radiographs are the newest improvement in dental diagnostic imaging. Its primary advantage is less exposure to radiation by 70-80 % than the standard system. The picture appears in a few seconds on the screen, saving your valued time. Dental radiographs are one of the most important tools we use to detect any changes in your jaw bone and teeth. Such changes can be bone loss or tooth decay.
We are using a camera designed into a pen size wand which allows us to show you the inside of your mouth. The images are captured into our computer unit and are shown on the screen. It helps us to see your existing restorations, tooth surfaces, cracks in your teeth, defective or broken fillings, bleeding, plaque, tartar build-up, and gingival condition. You will be able to see and understand your dental and oral health condition. It gives you a better understanding of your treatment needs.
Available to help anxious or stressed patients relax during the treatment with no lingering effect.
We encourage our patients to bring their own headphones with their iPod or mp3 player.
TMJ ( or temporomandibular joint) treatment aims to alleviate pain that occurs in the TMJ, or temporomandibular joint. This joint is commonly known as the sliding and locking joint in your jaw, and what allows us to chew food and move our jaw when we speak. When this joint becomes stiff and locked-up, eating, speaking, and chewing can become discomforting activities.
At Highland Family Dentistry, we use the latest technology available today to treat TMJ pain efficiently and conveniently with the use of laser TMJ treatment methods. This innovate technology leverages a series of laser scans to pinpoint the exact locations of discomfort within your jaw, and allows our team to put together the most effective and accurate treatment plan possible.
