Advanced Dental Services & Technology – Naperville, IL
Cutting-Edge Technology Designed For Young Smiles
Children deserve the same level of high-quality care as adults, which is why we are pleased to offer state-of-the-art, cutting-edge dentistry services and technology in our pediatric dental office. Below, you will discover the different types of equipment we use to create a more conservative and comfortable approach to dentistry. Not only will these devices make your child feel more at ease throughout their visit, but they allow us to ensure greater accuracy and precision while also reducing recovery times.
Intraoral cameras are a great way for your child to see exactly what we see when examining their mouth. This camera-tipped wand scans their teeth, taking high-resolution images, and displaying them on a nearby monitor. Not only can we easily identify problem areas, but we can also better explain the problem and which treatment is best to improve the issue. These unique devices allow for optimal patient education for both children and parents.
Compared to traditional radiographs that emitted high levels of radiation and took much time to develop in a dark room, our new digital X-rays are much safer and more reliable. Emitting less radiation and taking only seconds to upload, these images are more accurate, allowing us to identify problem areas among your child’s teeth and gums. This makes it possible for us to closely monitor the development of their mouth and address changes and issues before they become a serious problem.
Digital Impression System
Capturing dental impressions used to be a difficult task for dentists. Why? Because the cold, messy dental putty left a bad taste in the patient’s mouth and was often not as accurate. Fortunately, with the iTero digital impression system, we can make this process easier and more precise. By scanning your child’s mouth with this small, handheld device, it captures images in just minutes, producing a 3D model on a nearby screen, which can then be sent to lab technicians for detailed fabrication.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
At G&G Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we are pleased to introduce our patients to the soft tissue laser. As one of the most advanced forms of dental technology, this unique device allows us to easily perform lip and tongue-tie procedures as well as others that require treating a patient’s soft oral tissues. The concentrated beam of light not only minimizes bleeding and swelling while targeting only the designated area, but it reduces discomfort and ensures optimal comfort during the procedure.
