Technology has made nearly every part of your life better and easier, but what about your dental visits? Summer Creek Dentistry is equipped with some of the most innovative and effective technology that the industry has to offer, helping you have a more pleasant, comfortable experience from beginning to end. From simple X-rays to complex procedure planning, Dr. King has the advanced tools necessary to ensure that you have a healthier, more confident smile.
Your mouth includes many tight spaces, which can make it hard to see everything that’s going on. Our Digi-Doc intraoral cameras allow Dr. King to get a better, unobstructed view of your teeth and gums and catch problems as early as possible. Plus, she can also show these images to you and explain any issues she sees, giving you more information to make a clearer, better decision for your oral health.
Did you know that Dr. King can capture a detailed 3D image of your oral cavity? This Vatech cone beam technology reveals much more than an X-ray can, showing blood vessels and nerves in addition to the tooth and bone structure. This precise information is particularly helpful before Dr. King performs complex procedures, such as dental implant placement. Planning ahead can help you avoid complications and have easier, better healing.
Gone are the days of developing X-ray film. Instead we use digital technology to get a view of your teeth and bone structure under the gum surface. This means not only that the images are available for Dr. King’s review within minutes, but that you and our team members are exposed to significantly less radiation during the process. Plus, with no harsh chemicals used to develop the images, digital X-rays are far more eco-friendly.
Dr. King can skillfully perform procedures on the soft tissues in your mouth in addition to your teeth. Whether it’s removing infected tissue to treat gum disease or recontouring gums to create a more balanced look, our Biolase Epic laser makes soft tissue procedures more comfortable. In fact, many patients experience very little discomfort or bleeding, eliminating the need for sutures and reducing healing time.
As talented and skilled as Dr. King is, cavities can start to develop without clear indications apparent to the naked eye. That’s where the CariVue Cavity Detection System comes in. This device enables Dr. King to identify areas where decay has begun to form even before it has a chance to cause damage to your smile. As a result, we are able to address the problem without having to resort to more invasive treatments.
