Our dental office uses leading-edge technology and dental services to deliver optimal outcomes. Modern dental technology and techniques help us provide comfortable, efficient, and effective dentistry to our patients. Feel free to read more to learn about the technology we use at Lake Marion Dental Care.
Digital impressions, also known as 3-D intraoral scanning, allow us to capture a detailed replica of your mouth. After scanning your mouth, your dentist can immediately send the digital impression to a lab where a specialist creates dentures, crowns, bridges, retainers, mouthguards, and other prosthetics or appliances.
Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” is a mild, short-term sedative used to calm nervous patients and relieve pain. This colorless, odorless gas provides a euphoric and light-bodied feeling, and the effects dissipate almost immediately.
Intraoral cameras allow patients to see what your dentist sees. Using a small digital camera, your dentist takes images of your entire mouth and instantly transmits the images to our chairside monitor. Together, we can look at the details of your smile, including the health and structure of your gums, teeth, jaw bones, and more.
We use modern digital x-rays for screening and diagnosing various dental concerns, such as decay and gum disease. Digital x-rays are non-invasive and quickly produce precise images using considerably less radiation than conventional film x-rays. We securely store your x-rays in your digital file, and we can send them to specialists or your insurance company when needed.
Designed for patient comfort, digital intraoral x-ray sensors provide detailed images of a patient’s oral cavity. These sensors dramatically reduce radiation exposure to patients, and our dental team can alter the size and resolution of the images for enhanced diagnostics. Our Lake Marion Dental Care team can easily archive your high-quality digital radiographs and send them to referral partners or insurance companies.
Digital dental records allow us to keep important notes on each patient's oral health and provide long-term oral healthcare and treatment. Not only do digital records promote a seamless flow of information, but they are also easily accessible for patients so that you can view your records anytime you'd like.
Television in Rooms
At Lake Marion Dental Care, we want our patients to feel comfortable and relaxed. That's why all of our treatment rooms are equipped with flat screen televisions. During your appointment, we can project your digital x-rays and images onto the TV while we explain your treatment and take a closer look at your teeth and gums.
