Werschky & Lewis Family Dentistry gives our patients the high-quality care that they deserve by utilizing the latest in cutting-edge dental technology in Grand Blanc, Michigan. Some of the technologies utilized in our dental practice include:
At our office, we make use of the latest dental X-ray technology: digital radiography. By using an electronic sensor, an X-ray machine, and compatible computer technology, we can both store and capture digital images of your teeth. Taking digital X-rays is faster and reduces your exposure to radiation up to ten times that of a traditional X-ray. Because the digital images of your teeth from the machine can be viewed instantly, our dentists will be able to detect and diagnose any developing problems rapidly and efficiently. This technology is also extremely useful in patient education, as the patient can see the entire image on a computer screen right from the dental chair.
Intraoral Camera and Caries Detectors
Utilizing laser technology, Drs. Werschky and Lewis can scan teeth with deep grooves to record the fluorescence of decay, which is then quantified and assigned a level of treatment need. It is no longer necessary for our patients to experience pain from a cavity. We can now treat minimal cavities detected by the intraoral camera and caries detectors, saving you tooth structure, time, and money. This scan is included in your comprehensive initial exam.
WaterLase® MD Dental Laser
Using the WaterLase MD, our dentists can provide convenient and pain-free treatment to our patients. The WaterLase dental laser is minimally invasive and highly effective in placing new fillings in the teeth without creating the need for anesthesia and dental needles. Because using a laser for your procedure means there is less need for anesthesia, most patients will be in, out, and on their way without a numbed lip or tongue.
Dexis CariVu is a brilliant new approach to caries detection.By hugging the tooth and bathing it in safe, near-infrared light, CariVu’s transillumination technology makes the enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb the light. This allows the clinician to see through the tooth, exposing its structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions with very high accuracy.Similar in appearance, CariVu images read like familiar X-ray images — lesions will appear as dark areas. This provides an edge over fluorescent imaging technologies in that there is no need to clean the tooth of bacteria, calibrate the device, or become versed in the meaning of multiple color codes or numeric indicators.
