VELscope PDF Print E-mail

VELscopeThe VELscope is a powerful tool available for assisting in the discovery of oral abnormalities. The VELscope's distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinctive patterns — patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease. Using the VELscope, a wide variety of oral abnormalities can be discovered — often before they're visible to the unassisted eye.

Discovering soft tissue abnormalities is particularly important in the fight against oral cancer. Because the VELscope assists in early detection, cancer can be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives through less invasive, more effective treatment.

The VELscope is completely safe, has no unpleasant rinses or stains and the entire exam in about two minutes.

 

 
Gum Charting and Diagnostic PDF Print E-mail

Gum disease is a highly prevalent dental problem today. Gum disease can occur in two stages: gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is a milder, more easily handled disease, and it only affects the gums. Periodontitis is more severe, and can lead to major complications in the mouth. Both of these diseases occur below the gum line in a shallow, v-shaped crevice called the sulcus. As the sulcus becomes more diseased, the crevice grows, and the gums recede lower on the tooth.

Dr. Vakhshoori at Healthy Smiles Dental Care, suggests certain things a patient can do to prevent - or at lease decrease the likelihood of gum disease. Patients should be in the habit of brushing well two to three times daily and flossing once per day. Using a soft bristled toothbrush will also help. Having a healthy diet also aids in the health of one's gums: whole grains, vegetables, meats and dairy products are all beneficial. Snacks eaten between meals can increase the likelihood of gum disease. Also, regularly visiting your dentist and getting a full checkup and professional cleaning will help the teeth and gums to stay healthier.

Gum charting is a way that dentists keep track of the health of gums and determine whether or not the patient is suffering from gum disease. Dentists can use advanced computerized technologies to measure the height of your gums, and then chart them on a graph. Using the results, a dentist will be able to determine how healthy the patient's gums are and recommend how to handle any problems.

At Healthy Smiles Dental care, we can help you better understand periodontal diseases and how you can prevent it. We can quickly and painlessly check and monitor the condition of your gum during your continuing care appointments. Your examinations may show signs of infection, such as bleeding or pockets (spaces between the teeth and gum) that are deeper than normal. We may suggest a course of treatment that will help stop any further damage to your gum and bones. We will then design a home care regimen for your specific needs!

What is Waterlase ™ Technology?

Waterlase TechnologyWaterlase ™ uses the Hydrokinetic ™ process which gently washes away decay with YSGG laser-energized water droplets. Hydrokinetic ™ energy is produced by combining a spray of atomized water with laser energy. The resulting Hydrokinetic ™ energy gently and precisely removes a wide range of human tissue including tooth enamel (the hardest substance in the body), and soft tissue (gum tissue) with no heat or discomfort in most cases.

Laser Diagnosis PDF Print E-mail

DIAGNOdentOne of the most important things we do for our patients is to identify cavities and restore teeth. Since any spot of decay can threaten the integrity of an entire tooth, removing tooth decay early is key to preventing a host of future dental problems. Since finding tooth decay is so important, in the past this meant that you had to sit through lengthy poking and prodding sessions as part of your dental exams. But even those uncomfortable sessions are only 50% to 75% effective as cavities can hide along fissure lines or inside biting or occlusal surfaces. Furthermore, the cavity had to be at least as large as the probe head for the dentist to find it.
