Digital X-rays (Radiographs)
Digital radiographs are a technological advancement that results in less exposure to radiation for our patients and an almost instantaneous picture for Dr. Lopez Driscoll. You will appreciate a more comfortable visit, as well as quicker treatment.
Millions of people suffer from sleep apnea. In a patient with sleep apnea, the position of the structures of the mouth obstruct air flow during sleep, causing the patient to snore, and at times, to stop breathing for up to a minute or more at a time. The quality of sleep for both the patient and their partner suffers tremendously, and if left untreated, sleep apnea can be very dangerous. Dr. Lopez Driscoll can help patients with sleep apnea overcome this condition. After a sleep study is completed, treatment may include the use of a customized mouthpiece, which comfortably repositions the structures of the mouth, allowing for clear breathing and uninterrupted sleep. If you suffer from snoring, ask a team member about sleep apnea treatment today!
An intraoral camera lets you see inside your mouth during both treatment planning and dental procedures. Our intraoral camera displays your teeth on a monitor or iPad, allowing Dr. Lopez Driscoll to walk you through your proposed treatment. The use of this camera allows us to work with you as a team to meet your dental goals.
CS 3500 Intraoral Scanner
Enjoy a quicker, more convenient dental experience when receiving a dental scan. The CS 3500 Intraoral Scanner does not require Dr. Lopez Driscoll to use spray powders or liquids over your teeth and gingival tissue prior to scanning. This creates a more comfortable experience for the patient, while reducing the amount of time needed when having your teeth scanned for a restoration.
Digital photography gives your dentist instant images to use for cosmetic imaging or to keep on file to track your progress. Digital images can be electronically saved and are more efficient than traditional, film-based photographs, which must be taken off-site for development.
You can straighten your teeth without metal braces. Invisalign® is an FDA-approved system that uses clear, removable aligners to incrementally straighten your teeth. There are no uncomfortable brackets or wires, and because you remove the aligners to eat and drink, there is no need to worry about food restrictions or problems with brushing or flossing.
