3-D DENTAL IMAGING
One of Dental Touch’s Signature Services is the use of 3-D Dental Imaging. Regular x-rays are still the industry norm. But 3-D images are so much more help in treating patients that we use them on a regular basis.
CEREC – SINGLE VISIT CROWNS
The latest development in crowns is the growing trend toward one-day crowns. New technology from the CEREC Corporation makes it possible to get a crown replaced in a single appointment. In addition to the first step crown measuring process, a certified dentist a digital image of your tooth, a 3-dimensional image of a crown is created and then the crown can be sculpted from ceramic right in the dentist’s office.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed in your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are a wonderful option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease or an injury. Dental implants save the tooth a bit better than traditional bridgework because implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.
One of the biggest reasons people are afraid of going to the dentist relates to pain. Laser dentistry is one of the biggest advances in the dental field when it comes to easing pain. At Dental Touch Associates, we use a water-based laser system that makes your trip to the dentist virtually pain-free.
