Nitrous Oxide Sedation
While our dedicated dental team works hard to make patients feel welcome and relaxed during every visit to the dentist, we know that there are some patients who require added help. Our team offers nitrous oxide sedation to decrease dental discomfort and increase relaxation during any treatment. Inhaled through the nose, nitrous oxide is administered during treatment by Dr. Peramala, takes just a few minutes to be effective. Once the sedative effect takes hold, the dosage can be adjusted throughout care for optimal comfort, and possibly best of all, the sedative effect of nitrous wears off quickly so patients can return to daily activities right away. Patients might consider nitrous oxide sedation if:
- They experience dental phobia or anxiety
- They have impaired physical or mental capacity making it unsafe or uncomfortable for them to receive treatment
- They need numerous or complex treatments
- The have sensitive teeth, gums, or gag reflex
Digital x-rays offer higher definition images that are accessible immediately to view on chairside monitors. Unlike the x-ray images produced traditionally, digital images can be manipulated to help patients better understand their current oral health and recommended treatment options. They often times make treatment education tools.
IntraOral Cameras are a great addition to our modern state of the art dental office. They assist in better visualization with magnification of current dental condition of the patient and are a great patient education tool. At Hampton dental, every new patient and periodic exam comes with intra-oral photographs as a part of patients dental records, which we will then use as an adjunct with other traditional diagnostic tools to educate the patient and plan any necessary treatment.
Soft Tissue Laser
Possibly the most versatile of dental technologies, soft tissue laser services are useful in performing a number of oral health functions including treating periodontal disease and completing crown lengthening procedures. Additionally, soft tissue lasers can be used for purely cosmetic treatments like gum recontouring which shapes gum tissue for the ideal appearance in the smile line. Unlike more traditional treatments, laser services allow our team to perform these services more comfortably with less bleeding and reduced healing time.
Planmeca ProMax is a complete maxillofacial imaging system. The design and operation principles are based on the latest scientific research, technological innovations and the most demanding needs of modern-day radiology.
Locating tooth decay and dental cracks at the earliest stages is very beneficial for the patient’s health and wellbeing, and our team can accomplish this easier than ever with CariVu. This device utilizes transullumination technology to make your tooth enamel appear transparent and problematic areas appear dark in color, allowing us to identify them right away and confidently determine the extent of the damage, as well as whether or not immediate treatment is needed.
