Better Technology Makes For Better Treatment
We know how unsettling old-school dental tools can be.
That’s why we try to be forward-looking. Around here, we use a modern ultrasonic cleaner to remove debris comfortably from your mouth. And we make use of intraoral cameras to show you exactly what is going on with your teeth!
Additionally, we feature a special numbing system called “The Wand.” This is designed to help you feel numb without having to experience any pain or discomfort, let alone fear that might be caused from the use of needles!
At Westwood Dental Smiles, patient safety is our first priority. As such, we use the latest sterilization methods to ensure that dental hand pieces and tools are sanitized and safe. All non-disposable tools are sterilized with an autoclave after use. Our staff also uses barrier protection and disinfectant to prevent cross-contamination.
Sedation Dentistry Alleviates Fear & Anxiety
We know that some folks are afraid to see the dentist. Often this is based on earlier experiences that were painful or unpleasant. Sometimes it is rooted in a fear of the unknown. Regardless, one little pill or brief laughing gas session can relax your entire body and put your mind at ease. With our techniques for sedation, you may even drift off to sleep while you are here. And with any luck, you won’t have any memory of your procedure whatsoever thanks to sedation dentistry.
Cutting Edge Solutions
We are always exploring the latest breakthroughs in oral health care. For example, instead of using old-fashioned braces made of metal brackets and wires, we now offer Invisalign clear braces.
We also offer All-On-Four implants, mercury-free fillings, and high-tech root canal procedures. Plus, we have the VELscope oral cancer screening system to detect abnormal changes in the mouth. This can quite literally save your life.
But we won’t be able to do much good if you never come to see us!
Make It Happen For You!
Our favorite part of dentistry is interacting with people. We love to help people because we know they come in with pain, apprehension, fear, and we know that when we put in our best efforts, that is going to alleviate those negative emotions and the whole process is very rewarding.
