We offer one of the latest technological advances in dentistry with digital radiography (X-rays). A wireless sensor is placed in the mouth, and a computer generates an image in 30 seconds as opposed to the general 4-6 minute wait time for images taken on dental film. These X-rays can also be enhanced on the computer and enlarged.
Not only are they friendly to the environment, they are much safer than traditional X-rays. Digital radiographs reduce radiation exposure by 90 percent!
Having an intraoral camera in our office has so many benefits. Dr. Hunter and his staff feel that the use of an intraoral camera helps build trust with our patients by visual communication. When using the camera chairside, Dr. Hunter can show his patients a clear picture of any issues that may require treatment.
The soft-tissue laser that we use allows us to provide patients with a quicker and more painless experience when performing minor esthetic and surgical dental procedures. The use of this laser eliminates traditional therapies that once caused pain to the patient. A few examples of our procedures that involve the use of this laser are:
- Crown lengthening
- Removal of soft tissue
- Periodontal disease
- Implant recovery
The soft-tissue laser is part of the most advanced technology in dentistry today, and as such, a fairly small percentage of cosmetic dentists use it. Dr. Skippack is proud to provide this effective, reliable and powerful tool that results in less bleeding, swelling and pain — both during surgery and on into recovery. You owe it to yourself to choose an office, such as Skippack Village Dentistry, that specializes in this treatment.
