Latest Dental Technology
Exciting new laser therapies are available to treat gum disease quickly and nearly painlessly. Dental lasers work by transmitting a highly concentrated beam of light. Patients wear protective glasses to protect against continued exposure to the bright light.
Laser Therapy advantages include:
- Minimal or no anesthesia
- Little or no pain
- Minimal bleeding
- Less swelling
- Less post-operative discomfort
- Little to no noise
The lasers used in dental therapy have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are safe for adults and children. Many of the dental lasers are similar or identical to medical lasers used in ophthalmology, neurosurgery, Ear/Nose/Throat (ENT), and dermatology. While lasers don’t completely eliminate the discomfort of dental procedures, they have greatly reduced the amount of pain patients experience.
Are you aware that most dental offices do not use any form of water filtration in the office? This means that many water-borne contaminants can infiltrate an otherwise successful dental procedure and compromise your oral health with the presence of new bacteria. We use water filtration in our Glenpool, OK office, because Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry firmly believes in maintaining optimum health and safety for our patients.
Digital x-rays are one of the most exciting advances in dental technology. We are proud to offer this technology for diagnosis and treatment planning at CCCD. Digital x-rays have many advantages over traditional x-rays the most important of which is that they reduce the amount of radiation exposure for our patients and our dental team by up to 90%. In addition, digital images are:
- Faster- Digital images are produced much more quickly than traditional x-rays.
- More detailed- Images can be enlarged, lightened or darkened to see a greater level of detail.
- Easily reproduced and transported- Referrals and treatment planning is often quicker and more effective with easy duplication and instant delivery to insurance companies and other treatment providers.
- More successful- The greater depth of image allows us to identify areas of decay at a much earlier stage. Early treatment of cavities results in less tooth loss, smaller fillings, and better overall outcomes.
