We know that many people experience anxiety when they visit the dentist. We don't want fear to prevent you from having the healthy, beautiful smile you have always wanted. That's why we offer sedation dentistry for our patients who want to remain completely relaxed and comfortable during treatments. Sedation with nitrous oxide gas, commonly known as laughing gas, allows you to remain conscious and able to respond to requests during procedures, yet be in a relaxed, sedated state which will ensure your complete comfort. Sedation dentistry is a wonderful option for individuals who have had a traumatic dental experience with another practice, or who have trouble staying still for a long period of time.
At our Plantation practice, serving the Fort Lauderdale area, sedation dentistry is a safe and effective solution to quell anxiety and nervousness. Our team is fully trained to provide sedation techniques, and we closely monitor our patients during their dental procedures.
At Advanced Dentistry of Plantation, we use laser dentistry to make many treatments and procedures more efficient and comfortable. Because our lasers produce very concentrated, direct beams of light, Drs. Marc and Eli Schwartz can carefully control their movements and precisely target the intended areas of the mouth. We use lasers to detect cavities and decay, treat root canals, and cosmetically enhance the gums.
DIAGNOdent® Laser Cavity Detection®
DIAGNOdent® is a powerful diagnostic tool that allows our dentists to find potential problems that cannot be seen by the naked eye, and treat them before they become bigger problems. DIAGNOdent® uses a laser light which scans the teeth to safely locate tiny cavities and hidden areas of decay. Oftentimes, we can save a significant amount of tooth structure when we find and treat small areas of decay early.
Laser-enhanced Smiles (Cosmetic Gum Contouring)
Our soft tissue laser is used for precise cosmetic gum contouring. The laser is so gentle that soft tissue treatments are typically performed without the need for anesthetic or sutures. Laser dentistry also reduces the risk of infection, minimizes bleeding, and leads to faster healing than traditional soft-tissue treatments. If you live in or near Plantation and are interested in the laser dentistry treatments available at our practice, contact us today to schedule an appointment.
Digital Panoramic X-rays
Digital panoramic X-rays take a single digital image of the entire jaw, unlike traditional bitewing X-rays which only show a part of the teeth and jaw with each image. Digital panoramic X-rays produce 90 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays and a digital image is created almost immediately. In addition, the digital panoramic X-ray takes the image by sweeping around the face, so the patient doesn't need to have a plate in his or her mouth as is needed with traditional X-rays.
Smile Preview Imaging
Advanced Dentistry of Plantation not only offers laser and sedation dentistry but smile preview imaging as well. Through cosmetic imaging, you can preview the results of a variety of smile enhancements so that you can decide which procedures and treatments are right for you. We begin by taking digital photographs of your face and teeth. We then use powerful imaging software to edit the photographs in order to show you the possible results of any cosmetic options you are considering. Smile preview imaging allows our dentists to show patients what cosmetic dentistry can do for them, and helps our patients feel confident in the decisions they make about their dental care.
