At Lee J. Martin, DMD, we believe that state-of-the-art dental technology is an essential part of our practice. Not only does it provide our patients with earlier, more accurate diagnoses, but it offers them a better experience in the dental chair because treatment is usually quicker. Our investment in modern diagnostic and treatment technology means we can provide more efficient, precise, and comfortable dentistry.
Here are some of the ways we are incorporating dental technology into our Garden City, GA practice.
Root canals have an undeserved bad reputation because they are associated with pain. But the pain is usually from a toothache—not from the procedure itself, which is no worse than getting a dental filling. With rotary endodontic treatment, root canals are easier on patients than ever before. The tiny instruments enable your dentist to be precise and effective at removing bacteria from an infected tooth canal. With these instruments, we have high success rates with root canals.
This type of x-ray provides the dentist with a flat view of your entire mouth, including the temporomandibular joints and nasal and sinus areas. Panoramic x-rays also help to monitor bone levels and evaluate the development of wisdom teeth. Panoramic x-rays are just one more way to discover potential dental problems while they are still small.
