The Best in Dental Technology
Incorporating the latest advancements in dental technology allows our Princeton, NJ family dentist to provide you and your loved ones with the highest quality of care available. Through better technology, we’re able to enhance the level and predictability of your treatment outcome through better precision and less invasive strategies.
Some of the technology that we’ve invested in include:
Digital X-rays and Intraoral Cameras — You see the same thing we do, so that you can have a better understanding of your oral health needs and treatment options. Digital radiography uses significantly less radiation than conventional X-rays, and allows us to view images more quickly, reducing the length of time you spend waiting for a diagnosis.
TMJ Disorder (TMD) Therapy — Reduce the symptoms of painful TMD (TMJ disorder) and migraine headaches through customized oral appliances and bite splints, avoiding the need for medication or surgery.
Laser Dentistry — Soft tissue laser technology allows us to treat lesions and gum problems in a minimally invasive manner for faster results, faster healing, and minimal to no discomfort. Some of the types of laser treatments we’re able to provide range from cold sore treatments and periodontal therapy to cosmetic gum recontouring and crown lengthening (gingivectomies.)
Clear Orthodontic Aligners — ClearCorrect is an affordable alternative to Invisalign, allowing you to straighten your teeth without having to wear metal brackets and wires.
Princeton, NJ Dental Lasers to Treat Gum Disease
Thanks to advancements in soft tissue laser therapy, Canal Vista Family Dental is able to provide laser decontamination and gum treatments to help our Princeton, NJ patients battle periodontal (gum) infections more effectively.
Our patients that choose laser gum disease treatments can drastically lower their risk of having to see a periodontal specialist, due to the statistically proven faster healing times.
Lasers actually trigger the gums to re-attach to the tooth surfaces, physically shortening the depth of the pockets around infected teeth. Deep cleanings without lasers do not. Even with good home care, most soft tissues do not reattach as much as they do when treated with a soft tissue dental laser.
The best part is that laser periodontal therapy is extremely comfortable. While traditional gum surgeries require extensive numbing and possibly even sedation dentistry, laser treatments do not (but you can request them at any time!)
Dental lasers are also useful for:
- Tongue ties and lip ties (frenectomies) in children
- Cosmetic gum recontouring
- Cold sores and ulcer treatment
- Tooth desensitization
- Removal of excess gum tissue
- Adjusting soft tissues around wisdom teeth
Improved Care in Less Time
Being more efficient in your treatment doesn’t mean we’re rushing; in contrast, our technological investments allow us to do a better job when it comes to helping our patients better their oral health. Not only do you get to benefit from the highest quality outcome, we’re able to deliver gentler care in less time than what conventional procedures call for.
