There are many uses of a laser in dentistry. These include use of the new iPlus from Waterlase for precise cavity removal, often without anesthetic and virtually pain-free dentistry. This same laser can be utilized for crown lengthening, both bone and gum, as well as faster healing of cold & canker sores and other wounds in the mouth, soft tissue treatments including gum recontouring, soft tissue crown lengthening, frenectomy, removal of unesthetic lip bruising, and bacterial reduction in periodontal pockets. Lasers aid in minimizing swelling and bleeding associated with soft tissue treatments.
The laser can also be used to help ease sensitivity in affected teeth and is also used for whitening.
Dr. Roeder is an associate fellow of the World Clinical Laser Institute and is the first in our area to offer the Biolase iPlus 2.0 .
Digital impressions replace the rubber-type materials. This is helpful for patients with gag-reflexes and provides highly-accurate records of your teeth.
Compared to the traditional style films, the digital sensors record x-ray images of your teeth utilizing less radiation. They provide enhanced imaging for better diagnosis which can reduce your time in the dental chair in addition to potentially more costly services.
Dr. Roeder utilizes intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera which allows Dr. Roeder to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for him to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you.
