As part of our commitment to providing gentle family dentistry to the Wake Forest community, we utilize state-of-the-art technology in our office to ensure that your care is comfortable and efficient.
In addition to being more comfortable (say goodbye to sharp X-ray film), our digital X-rays are more convenient, too! The images are available almost instantly on our computers, so we can diagnose any issues and start treatment fast. They also emit up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays, so they’re safe for all of our patients, including children and pregnant women.
We use an intraoral camera to show you what we see inside your mouth. We’re able to take photos with the camera and guide you through your diagnosis and treatment plan. The intraoral camera is great for use before we begin any restorative or cosmetic dentistry treatment.
DIAGNOdent® Laser Cavity Detection
Finding signs of decay and beginning treatment quickly is key to saving your healthy tooth structure and keeping restorations small. The DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection system allows us to “see” decay before it would ever be visible to the naked eye, or even caught on an X-ray. Wake Forest dentist Dr. Thomas is then able to place a smaller filling faster that requires less prep work and less drilling. That’s something to smile about!
Isolite™ Patient Comfort System
Gone are the days of leaving the dentist with a sore jaw, thanks to the Isolite system. Its small, flexible mouthpiece gives you a comfortable place to rest your jaw while we work, plus it protects your cheeks. The system also has a light that gives us a better view of the inside of your mouth, letting us work faster and more efficiently.
