We at LiveHealthy Dental and our affiliated offices wish to take a moment to welcome you to your new dental home. Our philosophy is to practice dentistry the way it was meant to be practiced: as an art, implementing knowledge, thought, creativity, and detail into the entire patient experience. Thank you for choosing us as your patient-centered office. We look forward to helping you perfect your smile!
Our dentistry work includes endodontic procedures such as root canals, cosmetic procedures such as veneers, and general dentistry procedures. Call our office with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
A panorex is used to take a 360-degree picture of your whole head, including the teeth, bones, and sinuses. This allows the dentist to better locate any potential issues and make sure everything is in order. The panorex is better able to detect certain types of structural problems and infections.
Digital X-rays use 80% less radiation than standard X-rays. They also allow the dentist to place the X-ray into an imaging program for an up-close look.
Oral cancer screenings have become a necessary part of the dental visit. As with any type of cancer, early detection is key and these screenings allow us to do so with greater accuracy. An ultraviolet light is used to give a view the naked eye simply can’t. Certain groups of the population, such as smokers and heavy drinkers, are at greater risk for oral cancer, so be sure to get screened during each visit.
These cameras allow us to view the entire mouth on a monitor for a much better look. Using them, we are better able to detect any potential problems. The patient also gets a chance to see his or her mouth if desired. These images are excellent when trying to get your insurance provider to approve a procedure.
More commonly known as a root canal, the root or nerve of an infected tooth is removed in order to save it. Rotary endodontics uses a special electrical handpiece that speeds up the process and allows for greater ease of the process.
As opposed to air-driven handpieces, electric ones are stronger since they use a motor instead of just air. This allows the dentist to remove plaque and tartar more quickly.
