Sunbury Dental House uses the latest dental technology and evidence-based, modern dental developments to provide the highest level of dental care possible. Our dentists seek continuing education to stay up to date on trainings and certifications to advance the dental practice’s ability to provide high-level patient care.
We consider technology an investment in the health and comfort of our patients.
We store all patient records using encryption for advanced security, eliminating paper records that can become damaged or unreadable over time. Patient information is immediately accessible for dentists to identify changes in your oral health that may require professional attention.
Digital x-rays give dentists instant access to vital information used in the diagnosis and treatment of dental conditions. They emit significantly less radiation than traditional film x-rays for increased safety. We recommend periodic x-rays to assist with diagnosis of dental conditions such as decay, bone loss, and infection. We also take x-rays prior to restorations such as dental crowns, bridges, and dental implant placement to ensure accuracy with treatment.
Electric handpieces are quieter than their air-driven counterparts. Patients report finding the reduced noise and vibration less distracting during treatment. They also allow more efficient treatment times, meaning less overall time in the chair during procedures.
Intraoral cameras allow us an opportunity to show patients exactly what our dentists see. This may include cracked teeth, tartar buildup, periodontal disease, damage, wear, or suspicious lesions. A small, handheld camera can snap a picture of individual teeth or a certain area of your mouth. We can then bring up the image on our in-room monitors for the dentist to display. We will store this information in digital patient charts for future reference and to monitor changes in oral health.
Rotary endodontic instruments provide greater precision in root canal treatment with a reduced instance of treatment errors. We are able to effectively clean out canals, deliver a higher success rate, and complete more complex cases. Patients receive quieter treatment with less vibration, while the nickel-titanium tip more efficiently and smoothly removes damaged tissue.
Televisions in Rooms
In-room monitors may sound like a small convenience, but it is one patients truly enjoy. We offer treatment room televisions so that patients can pass the time during their appointments. Televisions shows, movies, and other entertainment can provide a welcome distraction as our team provides necessary dental treatment.
