We wouldn’t be able to provide such advanced, comfortable general dentistry in Burke if it wasn’t for the technology we’re equipped with. Thanks to so many changes and breakthroughs over the years, dentistry is becoming much more patient-friendly and less frustrating compared to the dated dental care of the past. Today, we have the tools that make it possible to give patients an exceptional dental experience from optimal dental hygiene to life-altering cosmetic dentistry transformations you must see to believe. Our Burke dental office features:
Digital and panoramic x-rays – Forget the old x-rays of the past. Our digital x-rays expose you to less radiation and provide immediate imaging you can see alongside your dentist.
Intraoral camera photography – For an even clearer vision of your oral health, we can also use intraoral cameras. This type of photography allows your Sunshine Dentists to see virtually every aspect of your teeth and mouth with such incredible detail. We can use it to uncover:
- Cracked teeth
- Unwanted plaque deposits
- Cavities near fillings
- Excessive dental wear
Cone beam – Dental cone beam computed tomography is imaging equipment that goes one step further than conventional digital x-rays. We use the cone beam to create impressive 3-D images of your teeth, bone, soft tissues, and nerve pathways in one easy scan.
Soft tissue laser – Many times we compare soft tissue laser work to “sculpturing of the gums.” Excessive or uneven gum tissue is no match for this laser that can painlessly modify tissue and enhance your look. This is a hallmark of Dr. Donohue’s general dentistry in Burke and makes her work look more natural in a non-invasive way. We can also use the laser to remove oral lesions for biopsy and releasing the tight ligament under the tongue (tongue-tied) or around the lips are also considered laser dentistry treatments.
