At Blue Sky Smiles, we take pride in continuing education. We are always going to workshops and seminars, learning about the newest research, treatments, and technologies to bring the best solutions back home to our patients in Saginaw. Digital technology improves the patient experience by making the process faster, easier, and more comfortable with better results than ever before.
If you ever had braces when you were a kid or have ever had any type of restorative work in the past, you might remember sitting with a mouth full of goop to have impressions taken. You’d better not move or you’d have to start all over. Gag. Thankfully, today we use 3D imaging to take quick and painless digital impressions with high precision accuracy that we can then use to create beautiful restorations and treatment plans faster than ever.
Digital x-rays have been a huge advancement in modern medicine and dentistry. Digital x-rays are safer than traditional x-rays, as they produce up to 90% less radiation exposure, keeping our patients and our team safer. Digital x-rays are also more convenient and more precise as they can be taken in a matter of moments right from the dental chair.
In the past, it wasn’t an easy task to get an up close and personal look at the inside of your mouth. We often relied on the magic of sight and the help of a tiny dental mirror to peer around corners. Thankfully, today, you can have peace of mind knowing we can see every nook and cranny with high-definition images that allow for maximum magnification. Intraoral cameras allow you to see what we see on the screen in real time, and allow us to detect and diagnose disease and decay sooner.
At Blue Sky Smiles, we follow a preventive model of dentistry that seeks to detect and diagnose dental problems as early as possible before they progress. In the past, the only way we could detect cavities was through x-rays and once they became visible to the naked eye. We’ve invested in advanced laser cavity detection technology that allows us to see micro-cracks and cavities, so we can stop decay in its tracks before it compromises more of your healthy teeth!
Traditional gum disease treatments are invasive and often painful – using sharp tools to scrape and clean beneath the gum line, and in more severe cases, gum surgery. At Blue Sky Smiles, we want to avoid the use of cutting, scraping and sewing as much as possible, not to mention the fact that these treatments only address the physical symptoms of the disease, rather than the cause of the disease which is the bacteria. Laser gum therapy has revolutionized the way we treat gum disease. Lasers are less invasive, less painful, and leave healthy tissue intact for a healthier environment in the mouth and a more pleasant experience.
For many patients, the worst part of any dental treatment is the numbing injection. At Blue Sky Smiles, we do everything we can to make your entire experience as relaxed and painless as possible. That’s why we’re happy to offer painless injections so you won’t even feel the prick of the needle. This is a huge sigh of relief for patients with any level of dental anxiety or particularly a fear of needles.
