Dental technology is rapidly advancing, and your dentist in Dunwoody stays on top of all the changes. Dr. Jeff Rodgers is continually investing in tools and methods that will serve our practice and our patients best — like digital x-rays, laser dentistry, and other advancements. Because while old fashioned values can be good, out-dated service for you and your loved ones is not. Keep reading to learn how we’re incorporating dental technology into our modern dental office!
We’ve Gone Digital
Digital dentistry is perhaps one of the most exciting advancements that has taken place in dental technology over the past decade or so. Digital x-rays are captured more quickly than the traditional kind, and there’s no need for any chemicals or special equipment to develop them. Digital radiography also exposes you and your loved ones to up to 90% less radiation compared to traditional x-rays.
The benefits of digital x-rays include…
- Faster and more comfortably captured (no biting down on bulky film)
- Ready instantly
- Can be viewed on a screen right at your chairside
- Reduced radiation exposure
Storage is also much simpler since we have gone digital. Now we don’t have to dedicate any of our office space to bulky file cabinets when all of your records are safe and secure on a digital file!
Improving Patient Communication
Because we know that thorough and easy to understand communication is important for your satisfaction, we have also invested in CAESY. It’s an interesting way to better communicate information on more complex dental treatments.
CAESY is a service you can access from your computer. It uses short videos, images, and thorough multimedia presentations to help you understand why certain treatments are necessary and how they could benefit your smile. You can also use it to gain a basic understanding on any treatment, knowing a more in-depth discussion can occur with your dentist in a one-on-one appointment.
Multiple Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Using the concentrated power of a laser beam, we can cut through diseased oral tissue with increased precision, less bleeding, and virtually zero discomfort compared to traditional surgical methods.
Dr. Rodgers uses laser dentistry for periodontal therapy, cosmetic gum recontouring, decay detection and elimination, cauterizing incision, biopsy, and excision. There’s no need for a suture or stitches with laser dentistry, and because it sterilizes as it works, there’s less risk of reinfection after healing.
When Dr. Rodgers needs a more up close and personal look at your teeth and gums in the diagnosis and treatment planning stages, he will make use of the surgical operating microscope. This technology improves the performance of today’s leading dental practitioners, for far more accurate diagnosis and treatment of virtually any oral issue.
