Why wait to get a tooth crown with a perfect fit? Our office has an in-house CEREC® machine that uses CAD/CAM software to create precise restoration pieces from a ceramic, tooth-colored material. It usually takes about an hour to create a same-day dental crown thanks to CEREC®, which takes away the need for temporary crowns and multiple appointments. It is one more way we can save you time with advanced dentistry!
A lot of people fear needles and avoid the dentist because of this concern. We offer The Wand®, a system that delivers anesthesia rapidly right to the site where numbness is needed. It uses a revolutionary injection system that is painless, does not cause odd sensations in other parts of your mouth, and delivers the appropriate amount of anesthesia—every time.
When topical anesthetic is necessary, we choose Oraqix, a gel from DENTSPLY that immediately provides numbness. Oraqix is sometimes used in conjunction with The Wand® for extremely sensitive patients.
If you hate needles, find out how The Wand® can be your best partner in getting worry-free dental care. Call us at (405) 334-5015 to learn more!
Just as the cameras on our smart phones have improved, so have the cameras we use at Shawnee Dental. The intraoral camera is an amazing tool that gives us the ability to capture digital pictures of the soft and hard tissues in your mouth. Intraoral cameras allow us to not only detect caries and other issues early but are a wonderful asset when documenting your progress and health.
Remember the days when you had to stand in front of a high-radiation x-ray machine to get a solid picture of your teeth and gums? Digital x-rays have eliminated the need for those types of x-rays and are more precise thanks to the software that is utilized by the program. Plus, we can see your x-ray instantly on a computer screen.
When you come for your visit at Shawnee Dental, you will never hear the sound of traditional drills. In conjunction with our traditional handpiece, we also use the Waterlase laser which can be used on both hard and soft tissue in the mouth. WaterLase™ works so effectively that many individuals need no anesthesia when WaterLase™ is used. Call us today at (405) 334-5015 to find out about WaterLase™ and other advanced dentistry options!
Do you struggle with problems associated with sensitive teeth and gums? Many Shawnee Dental patients find relief with MI Paste Plus™, a product that can be used at home. It has been scientifically shown to lower sensitivity while building the protective tooth enamel. Learn more at your next appointment at our Shawnee, OK, office!
