At Richmond VA Dental Arts we use cutting-edge dental technology to provide you with safe, fast, and effective results!
In the past, most dental professionals had to use the traditional x-ray systems, which require film development. These days, we use digital x-rays due to their many benefits. A digital x-ray is safer and much quicker than its film predecessor. If the image comes out blurry, we can instantly retake a new one. Digital x-rays are a crucial diagnostic tool that helps us gain a better understanding of the inner workings of your mouth, more specifically the teeth, roots, and alveolar bone.
DioDent Soft Tissue Laser
A soft tissue laser simultaneously cauterizes and cuts an incision in the tissue. For this reason, laser treatment may reduce bleeding, discomfort, and swelling both during and after your procedure. We may use a soft tissue laser to treat periodontal disease by removing the infected lining of the gum tissue. This allows for the regeneration of healthy tissue around the teeth. Soft tissue lasers are also effective for gum contouring and crown lengthening if you want to improve the aesthetics of your smile.
We use an ultrasonic scaler to perform cleanings and treat periodontal (gum) disease. An ultrasonic scaler produces microscopic bubbles that implode on the surface of your teeth. These implosions remove the plaque and tartar deposits from your teeth while killing harmful bacteria. Unlike metal handpieces, the ultrasonic scaler does not put your enamel at risk for additional damage.
VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening System
The VELscope handheld scope uses natural tissue fluorescence to enhance the way Dr. Hart visualizes oral mucosal abnormalities that might not be apparent or even visible to the naked eye. Use of this technology helps us catch oral cancer much earlier, meaning earlier treatment and higher success rate of recovery.
NuCalm is a safe technology used for patients who want to be more relaxed during dentistry - especially for those who cannot tolerated sedation. NuCalm is also good for patients who need to drive afterwards, since the effects of NuCalm do not linger.
