Our Modern Technology and Treatment
We use the latest in dental technology and treatment so patients receive lasting and comfortable results:
Our digital X-rays, which are easier on the body than traditional X-rays, are cutting-edge technology that makes file sharing easier. With digital X-rays, we can see areas of the smile that we cannot see with a visual examination. Additionally, if we find problems that require a specialist, we can send them digitally. We can also save images for our records.
Small intraoral cameras can take images of the smile in real time. Intraoral cameras are essential to patient education because we use them to show patients their dental problems. The camera is connected to a monitor, where patients can see their smiles as we explain their dental problems and our recommended treatment plan.
We use soft tissue diode lasers to treat patients with gum disease or excess gum tissue. Unlike traditional surgical tools, dental lasers do not make noise or vibration, ensuring patients experience minimal pain or discomfort. The lasers use light and heat to cut and contour the gum tissue without affecting surrounding healthy bone or gum tissue.
Dr. Banks offers cosmetic and therapeutic Botox. Cosmetic Botox treatment can address wrinkles in different areas of the face, from crow’s feet to lipstick lines. Patients with TMJ disorders may also benefit from Botox. Botox relaxes the facial muscles and can reduce common TMD symptoms like headaches and facial pain.
