Get More Information About The Dental Technologies Our Glendale Dentists Use To Help Patients

Written by Dr. McKay on Jul 18, 2017

The field of dentistry is always advancing; our Glendale dentists make a point of continually updating our practice with the latest techniques and technologies, so that we can better meet our patients’ needs. In this article, we’re providing a brief overview of some of the most impactful innovative treatments we offer. Let’s get started!

CEREC Crowns: CEREC technology allows our dental team to craft restorative crowns right here in our office. This means that patients don’t have to wait for their crowns to be crafted in an off-site lab—you can come in with a damaged tooth and leave with a permanent dental crown the same day.

Dental Implants: these stand-alone replacement teeth actually mimic the natural structure of a real tooth. Every dental implant has a titanium post that extends into the patient’s jawbone—this post replaces the natural tooth root. Then, the titanium post is capped with a natural looking dental restoration. Patients love dental implants because they are permanent replacement teeth that provide exceptional stability and aesthetics.

Oral Conscious Sedation: because dental anxiety is such a big barrier for many dental patients, our team offers sedation treatments to help anxiety sufferers get the treatments that they need. Oral conscious sedation is unique in that the patient actually takes the small sedative pill about an hour before their appointment is set to begin. This means that you can start to benefit from relaxation treatments before you even get into the dentist’s chair. 

Snap-on-Smile: this affordable cosmetic option delivers a total smile transformation instantly. Snap-on-Smile is actually a removable oral appliance that fits over your natural teeth; when Snap-on-Smile is in place, your smile looks perfect and straight. Then, you can take the oral appliance out when you’re alone or at home. One huge benefit of Snap-on-Smile is that it doesn’t actually alter your natural teeth, so you leave all of your future treatment options open.

Our Glendale dentists are happy to provide you with any additional information that you may need about your treatment options, and the technologies that we utilize. Give us a call to schedule a personal consultation with our team!
