Dentistry has evolved way past the point of using little mirrors to look at your teeth or just fixing cavities. With the latest technology, we’re able to address a wider variety of problems even faster and keep patients more comfortable while we do it. Thanks to the tools outlined below, we can promise that your care with us will always be quick, precise, and high quality. At Aegis Dental, we’ll only give you the very best of what modern-day dentistry has to offer.
Your TMJ is actually the name for your jaw joint, and like other joints in the body, it can sometimes develop problems due to strain, injury, or arthritis. Dr. Chandy is specially trained to diagnose and treat these kinds of issues, so if you’re dealing with symptoms like a stiff, painful jaw, chronic headaches, earaches, or even neck and shoulder pain, she can provide the relief you need using a selection of effective, non-invasive treatments.
If you or your child feel nervous about going to the dentist, we completely understand, and we can offer nitrous oxide sedation to help “take the edge off.” With this method, you’ll feel nice and relaxed in the chair, plus it will drastically lower your ability to feel any discomfort, allowing your appointments to quickly glide on by.
In the past, you just had to trust your dentist when it came to what was going on in your mouth, but thanks to the Schick intraoral camera, you can now see exactly what they are talking about. This small, pen-sized instrument can be easily maneuvered through the mouth to capture highly-detailed images of your teeth and gums we can then display on a chairside monitor so you can go over them with your dentist.
Compared to traditional, film-based dental X-rays, digital X-rays are a huge leap forward in almost every way you can imagine. They create crystal clear images in seconds, they don’t require toxic chemicals to be developed, plus they expose our patients (and us!) to 90% LESS radiation. Also, because the images are digital, they can easily be sent, stored, and displayed on a monitor for you to view with your dentist.
