The Technology Difference
Dental Health, we made the decision to invest in the latest technology to best
help you with your dental and overall wellness. While most dentists have
similar training and credentials, the benefits to our patients of this new
technology is what makes us stand out from the rest.
Same Day Crowns &
Veneers Anyone that has lived weeks with temporary veneers or crowns that
fall off or are uncomfortable can tell you how wonderful this new technology
can be. Our E4D CAD/CAM dental system enables us to provide you with the dental
care you want and need in a single visit.
Cameras We have a small, high quality, digital camera that allows us to
show you that cracked filling or broken tooth. Part of our responsibility at
Dental Health is to help educate you about your teeth and mouth. In this case,
a picture certainly is worth a thousand words.
Dental Laser At Dental Health we can use a dental
laser to remove and reshape gum tissue and prepare teeth for fillings, often
without any need for numbing. Typically there is less swelling, bleeding and
post-operative sensitivity. Lasers offer our patients a safe and effective
treatment option that does not produce the same anxiety and nervousness.
Reducing anxiety and helping patients feel better about visiting the dentist
may help some patients get the dental treatment that they need.
Diagnostic Laser DIAGNOdent is a very low power diagnostic
laser used to detect early cavities. It has the great advantage of detecting
caries in the very early stage by measuring the laser fluorescence within the
tooth structure. Cavities caught early are easier to fill and conserve more
valuable tooth structure.
have been using digital dental X-rays for so long that it does not seem new to
us at all until we remember how many Longmont offices do not have this amazing
technology. Lower radiation, quicker & easier to take, store and share are
just some of the benefits of being all digital. Also of note is that we use the
non-wired digital x-rays which are very thin and much more comfortable to the
patient than wired x-rays sensors.
Oral Cancer Screening As part of
your normal preventive visit exam, we do a thorough visual and tactile
screening for oral cancer. As an additional diagnostic procedure, we can
utilize the VELscope® Oral Cancer screening device. The VELscope's
distinctive blue-spectrum light causes healthy soft tissues of the mouth to
fluoresce while tissue damaged by trauma or disease does not. Using the
VELscope, a wide variety of oral abnormalities can be discovered, often before
they're visible to the unassisted eye. Discovering soft tissue abnormalities is
particularly important in the fight against oral cancer because early detection
allows for easier and more effective treatment. The normal pink looking tissue
in this photograph appeared abnormal under the VELscope and was biopsied to be
No Injection Deep Cleanings Traditionally an anesthetic
injection is required to do scaling and root planing, also known as a Deep
Cleaning. We nearly always uses Oraqix instead of a needle for this procedure
making it much easier for you and reducing any dental anxiety about the
treatment. Oraqix is the only FDA approved device for needle-free scaling and
Invisalign Nothing says hi-tech dentistry as
Invisalign does. Using advanced 3D proprietary software, Dr. Howell can turn a
crowded crooked smile into an instant charmer. The Clear Alternative to
Software While pretty much all dental offices have
software to assist them, we are especially proud of how we have been able to
fine tune ours to give the best advantage to you and your family. After
verification of your dental insurance, your benefits can automatically be
available to provide you with the most cost effective treatment options.
Depending on your preference, we can conveniently send you texts, emails or
call you to confirm upcoming appointments and to provide us with feedback on
how to best serve you.
