X-rays are a truly vital part of dental care, allowing our doctors to locate concerns that can’t be seen with only a clinical exam. At Family Dentistry of Sioux Falls, we’re proud to have invested in digital x-rays. Quicker processing time and minimal levels of radiation make it easier for our office to provide you with caring, efficient, and reputable dental care.
When it comes to your oral health, you shouldn’t have to be left in the dark at the dentist’s office. That’s why our team takes the time to give patients in-depth tours of their own smile with the help of intraoral cameras. By capturing these high-resolution images and showing the pictures to our patients, we can show our patients any problems developing with their teeth and explain the individualized treatment options that we recommend.
Digital Impression System
Countless patients are familiar with the traditional method for capturing dental impressions – goopy, gag reflex-inducing materials that have to be held in the mouth to create a solid model. At our practice, we’re happy to have invested in a much smoother and more effective alternative. CEREC’s digital impression system allows our doctors to capture all the information we need about your unique teeth with a simple scan. The results are accurate, quick, and comfortable for our patients.
Soft Tissue Laser
Instead of relying on scalpels and other traditional tools, our doctors can treat gum tissue precisely and safely with our state-of-the-art soft tissue laser. This technology is able to remove bacteria, minimize bleeding and swelling, and speed up the healing process after the dental procedure. The soft tissue laser is a great treatment option for patients fighting chronic periodontal (bone and gum) disease.
We pride ourselves on providing gentle, high-quality care to patients. One of the ways we accomplish that is through the WaterLase laser. This remarkable technology combines a highly concentrated beam of light with a stream of water to remove decayed areas of teeth, fight gum disease, and so much more. Not only is the laser extremely precise, but it is so comfortable for patients that it can even eliminate the need for numbing shots. In many cases, it also allows us to avoid the use of dental drills and sutures.
