The field of dentistry is constantly evolving, and your family dentist in Bangor, ME, makes a point of staying on top of the latest developments. Maine Family Dental Practice is constantly assessing new technologies and techniques to identify the ones that will provide our patients with the most comfortable, convenient, efficient, and effective dentistry available!
One recent development that we are proud to incorporate into our practice is dental laser technology. The laser allows us to treat a range of dental concerns, including cavities and periodontal disease, with greater precision and comfort than ever before.
Laser treatments can help you:
- Avoid injections
- Save time
- Heal faster
- Minimize discomfort
- Preserve healthy tissue
You can see why we think this is a big deal!
Modern digital x-rays allow us to see what’s happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums so that we can catch problems early and offer simpler, more conservative treatments.
The sensors on the digital x-ray are more comfortable than film, and the image develops virtually instantly so you don’t have to sit around and wait. Since the image is digital and viewed on a computer monitor, we can show you your x-rays chairside and zoom in or enhance specific areas of the x-ray to address our concerns with you and explain any treatment we might recommend. The x-rays become a part of your electronic file for easy access and comparison.
Plus, since digital x-rays don’t require film or chemicals for developing, they are better for the environment!
