Digital Panoramic X-Rays

The use of digital panoramic x-rays gives our dentists an accurate and complete view of your teeth as well as other structures inside of your mouth. The digital sensor used to take the images may resemble traditional x-ray film, but it is actually linked to a computer.

Since your x-rays are digital, we can view them collaboratively as soon as they are taken. They are available for discussion and, ultimately, allow for a better understanding of anything that we might need to resolve. In addition, digital x-rays use approximately one-quarter of the radiation of traditional film x-rays. They are also better for the environment as they require no fixant or other harmful chemicals.

Other benefits of our x-rays include:

  • Early detection of common oral infections such as periodontal disease
  • Longer-lasting and more durable teeth
  • Improved, advanced care for all parts of your mouth

We Offer Sedation Dentistry

Patients often need help relaxing during complex treatments. We offer sedation options that include nitrous oxide and oral sedation. Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that helps you feel drowsy, calm, and detached from the experience. If oral sedation is needed, you will be prescribed a medicine to take before you arrive. In some cases, a combination of both methods is used to help patients fully relax.

For more information, call us today at 256.269.2954

Millennium Laser Treatment

The LANAP protocol is a comprehensive approach to treating gum disease around teeth and dental implants using the Millennium PerioLase MVP-7, a free-running pulsed Nd:YAG laser requiring specific knowledge and skills drawn from the whole of dentistry.

The LANAP protocol targets the diseased tissue, leaving healthy tissue intact, while maintaining the height of the tissue and a closure of the periodontal pocket wound. This allows healing to take place while minimizing pain and discomfort to the patient. This means less pain, less bleeding, less swelling, no stitches, less down time, and less recovery-time dramatically.
