Dental Radiographs (X-rays)
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Dr. Bauer and Dr. Nemcik choose carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow.
Radiographs allow us to examine what we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth and diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Lasers in Dentistry
Lasers, which use light energy, have uniquely effective applications for dental care. The laser targets specific tissue without affecting surrounding structures.
- Soft tissue removals
- Effective treatment of cold sores, fever blisters, and mouth ulcers
- Gentle removal of swollen tissues
- Periodontal or gum-related care
- Apthous ulcer treatment (canker sore)
- Frenectomy without anesthesia or sutures
- Crown lengthening, gingivectomy, and other gum corrections
Dental lasers have been shown to be safe and effective for treating both children and adults.
Dr. Bauer, Dr. Nemcik and their staff utilize Schick digital intra-oral camera technology coupled with wireless Samsung computer tablets to enhance your understanding of your diagnosis and case presentation. An intra-oral camera is a very small camera — in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An intra-oral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth, and gums. With clear, defined, enlarged images, we are able to see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations.
Intra-oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab, or insurance companies.
A hundred thousand welcomes!
