Digital technology has improved the medical and dental fields by leaps and bounds. Today, digital x-rays are quicker, easier, and more accurate than ever. They can be taken in a matter of moments right from the dental chair and reduce your radiation exposure by up to 90%.
For more complex diagnostics and treatment plans, we use our 3D imaging system to take panoramic x-rays for a more comprehensive understanding of your oral health structures. CBCT scans give us a whole new dimension of insight for better diagnostics, better experiences, and successful outcomes.
Our 3D imaging CBCT scanner creates digital models that we use to guide your implant treatment with the utmost precision.
In the past, the only way to get a good look inside your mouth was through the magic of sight and the help of a tiny dental mirror to peer around corners. Thankfully, today, we have a tool in our belt that makes the discovery process more intuitive, so you can have peace of mind.
Intraoral cameras take real-time live videos of all the nooks and crannies of your mouth, so we can see into those hard-to-reach places for earlier detection of disease and decay. They also allow you to see what we see on the screen, so you can better understand your oral health and treatment needs.
If it’s been a while since your last checkup, it would be wise to schedule an exam and cleaning. We can use our intraoral camera technology to spot small problems before they progress.Schedule Now
Would you believe us if we told you only about 15% of dentists in America regularly screen their patients for oral cancer? Unfortunately, it’s true. At Chisholm Trail Dental, we take oral cancer and systemic wellness very seriously, and as your oral health advocates, we take pride in screening every patient for oral cancer at every exam.
It’s one thing to perform a visual exam, looking for any changes or abnormalities that may have developed since your last visit. But often times, tissue abnormalities and pre-cancerous cells are invisible to the naked eye. That’s why we’ve invested in oral cancer screening technology that allows us to illuminate cell and tissue abnormalities sooner.
Any changes or abnormalities in your mouth or throat should be brought to the attention of our doctors. To learn more about oral cancer risk factors, signs and symptoms, click the button below!
Laser technology has been another of the greatest advancements in recent dental history. Treatments that used to require painful injections, invasive drills, and cutting and sewing tissue can now be completed with dental lasers. At Chisholm Trail Dental, we use THREE different wavelengths of lasers for different dental needs including laser cavity detection, fillings without a drill or shot, and gum disease therapy.
Our Fotona LightWalker® laser allows for more conservative dentistry, earning widespread industry acclaim and highly-respected technology and innovation awards. The LightWalker laser helps us diagnose and treat many dental issues in the areas of endodontics, implantology, oral surgery, gum disease, and even teeth whitening. The patented pulse mode improves the laser’s interaction with tissues for optimized speed, comfort, and results.
If it’s been a while since your last dental visit, you might be surprised how this new laser technology can improve your experience—and your oral health!Schedule A Visit
For many folks, the worst part of any dental treatment is the injection. Nerves, pinch, ouch! And if you have a fear of needles, you may avoid the entire situation altogether, which only leads to a cycle of dental problems and avoiding the dentist. It doesn’t have to be this way.
At Chisholm Trail Dental, your comfort is our top priority, and we go above and beyond to create comfortable, stress-free experiences for our patients. That’s why we’re happy to offer painless injections, using a topical anesthetic to numb the area so you won’t feel a thing.
We offer a range of anesthetic and sedation options to ensure our patients’ comfort. Click the button below to learn more about our sedation and anesthetic options!
It’s unfortunate that many dentists practice what we call the “drill-n-fill” philosophy of care—only treating the physical symptoms of disease and decay, rather than educating the patient or going to deeper to determine the root cause of the problem. That’s where our practice stands out from the rest. We’ve invested in advanced microscope technology that allows us to view your oral pathogens—we can even determine your risk for disease based on your DNA. Pretty cool, right?
Your oral pathogens are the keys to your oral and overall health. Certain pathogens present at moderate to high levels indicate your risk for oral disease, and these same pathogens significantly increase your risk for systemic diseases as well. If we can determine your oral biology based on your saliva and Oral DNA testing, we can prescribe the right products and lifestyle habits to correct the imbalance and prevent disease in the future. Now that’s a future we look forward to.
It’s definitely worth finding out if you value your health and want solutions and prevention, not band-aids. Get in touch with us today to schedule a bacterial analysis microscope screening and Oral DNA test.Schedule Now
It can be overwhelming walking through the toothpaste aisle—so many choices! Not to mention all the other products and tools that guarantee a healthier mouth (and rarely deliver results). If you trust your hair stylist and invest in the products she recommends for your hair, don’t you think it’s time to take your dentist’s advice and invest in the best products for your unique oral health needs? If you prefer prevention versus treatment, say yes.
We’re happy to supply many oral home care products and recommend which ones are right for you. Our selection includes CariFree® products, dry mouth products and saliva substitutes, GUM® Soft-Picks®, Sonicare toothbrushes, WaterPik® water flossers, Therasol oral antiseptic, and Livionex® dental gel. If you struggle with chronic gum disease or decay, or you just want to strengthen your defense with proven products, you’re in the right place.
We would be more than happy to sit down with you to determine which products and tools are best for your unique oral health needs and goals. Schedule a visit with us today!Schedule Now
