At Salem Dental Arts we use cutting-edge dental technology to provide you with safe, fast, and effective results!
Voice-activated Periodontal Charting
Did you know that at every dental hygiene visit, the height of the bone and gums that supports your teeth is measured and evalutated? This voice-activated technology allows her to enter your measurements and the status of your gingival and bone health without touching the computer. This helps to promote better infection control and patients can learn more about their periodontal status.
Guided Biofilm Therapy
Dental plaque is a film that forms on your teeth that is made up of colonies of bacteria that can cause gum disease, tooth decay and promote inflammation in other areas of your body. This inflammation can exacerbate general health ailments, including, but not limited to diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and various cardiac conditions. Guided biofilm therapy includes using the modern technology to identify and remove biofilm during your dental hygiene appointment.
An intraoral camera is a handheld appliance that is shaped like a wand. The tiny camera at the tip of the appliance takes hundreds of pictures per second to capture an in-depth and accurate image of your mouth. This image is sometimes used to create a digital impression of your teeth and gums. A digital impression is particularly useful for same-day dental crowns.
In the past, most dental professionals had to use the traditional x-ray systems, which require film development. These days, we use digital x-rays due to their many benefits. A digital x-ray is safer and much quicker than its film predecessor. If the image comes out blurry, we can instantly retake a new one. Digital x-rays are a crucial diagnostic tool that helps us gain a better understanding of the inner workings of your mouth, more specifically the teeth, roots, and alveolar bone.
Laser Caries Detector
The laser allows us to more effectively identify the presence of decay in the occlusal (bite) surface of a tooth. The laser measures laser fluorescence within the mineral structure of a tooth. This allows for the detection of healthy tooth structure, as well as smooth surface dental caries (tooth decay) at their earliest stage. Early detection of tooth decay helps us effectively treat the problem before it requires a costly and invasive restoration.
