Working with the latest dental technology is vital to Dr. Nelson because his patients are his top priority. State-of-the-art equipment such as 3-D imaging allows Dr. Nelson to deliver the best results for his patients. Read on to learn more about the technology you'll see at Peak Dental Health.
3-D Cone Beam
Our 3-D Cone Beam allows Dr. Nelson to view 3-D images of our patient's teeth, nerves, soft tissues, and bone. Dr. Nelson uses this type of imaging for planning dental implant placement procedures. A 3-D view allows him to determine precisely where the implant should be placed prior to surgery to ensure the best outcome.
He may also use these images for evaluating the sinuses or the jaw joint (TMJ), and helping to diagnose and treat TMJ issues.
Digital x-rays are an invaluable tool that Dr. Nelson utilizes to detect any concerns early on. Taking x-rays digitally means significantly less (80%) radiation for patients, and images are readily available for viewing. They provide a clearer image for Dr. Nelson to diagnose more accurately.
Digital x-rays also leave less footprint on the environment as chemicals for developing are no longer needed.
Imagine if you could see the decay in your tooth, you might better understand why you need that crown or filling, right? Now you can with our intraoral camera! This tiny camera can take pictures of the inside of your mouth so you can see your teeth and soft tissues up close and in color. Understanding what you need helps you make decisions about your oral health that make sense for you.
Those struggling with gum disease will benefit from the accuracy and precision of the dental laser. The laser can remove diseased tissue without harming your healthy tissue in the process. It also seals the area, which protects it and accelerates the healing process.
Laser dentistry delivers precise results while making treatment more comfortable for patients.
Panoramic x-rays give Dr. Nelson a full view of your teeth, mouth, and jaw joints in one clear picture. This image is helpful for planning orthodontic treatment and implant dentistry.
We are happy to offer this x-ray option for patients, so they don't have to go elsewhere for imaging.
Rotary endodontic tools are specialized hand tools made of nickel-titanium and designed to easily reach the inner canals of your tooth during root canal therapy. Nickel-titanium is flexible, allowing the tool easier access into your tooth to comfortably remove infected tissue.
These tools are also electric, which allows them to work more efficiently, making the process of completing a root canal faster.
Nitrous oxide is only one of the levels of dental sedation offered at Peak Dental Health. We also provide more profound levels of relaxation with oral conscious and IV sedation.
Nitrous is safe and comfortable to use during almost all types of procedures. It leaves your system quickly after your procedure, which means it's safe to drive yourself home. It is also safe and an excellent option for children who are fearful of dental procedures.
