Dentistry has come a long way in the last few decades. Thanks to modern technology, such as digital imaging and lasers, dental professionals have significantly raised the bar for diagnosing and treating oral health problems.
At Cornerstone Dental, we use the most advanced dental technology not only to provide the best care for your teeth, but also to make the experience as easy and comfortable as possible for patients of all ages. Our dedicated staff members have a diverse range of experience and industry certifications. We strive to keep abreast of new developments in dental care so that our practice can grow along with our patients and their families.
After we took over Dr. James Gibson’s dental practice when he retired earlier this year, we decided to update our office space and equipment. We replaced many of the dental chairs, and we also purchased two state-of-the-art Sirona operating chairs that enable us to perform advanced procedures, including extractions, endodontic therapy, and implants, that only specialists used to be able to offer.
We also replaced the old panorex X-ray machine with a new digital model that allows us to see more detailed 2-D images as well as 3-D images. Our new digital X-ray sensors likewise give us more detailed images than traditional film X-rays.
Better images of your teeth help us diagnose problems sooner and treat them before they become more serious (and expensive to fix). By spotting a minor cavity early on, for instance, we may be able to treat it with a simple filling rather than a root canal.
Our Cavitron Ultrasonic Scaler is another modern piece of equipment that helps us increase the comfort of our patients. Using water pressure and air, the Cavitron removes plaque and stains from teeth, reducing the need for scraping as well as the time it takes to clean teeth during routine visits.
