At Blue Periodontics, we pride ourselves on staying up-to-date on the most advanced periodontal technology available today. Our use of cutting-edge technology allows us to better prevent, diagnose, and treat periodontal problems.
Ultrasonic Scaler and Electric Handpieces
We use an ultrasonic scaler and other electric handpieces 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.
Oral Cancer Screening
An oral cancer screening is a precautionary measure that can give you peace of mind. We use the latest diagnostic tools during our screenings to provide a more comfortable and effective experience. We may recommend screening if you are at a greater risk for developing cancer due to factors like genetics and poor personal habits.
Cone beam computed tomography, or CBCT scans, are an important diagnostic tool. Unlike traditional dental x-rays, a CBCT scan gives us a 3D view of your teeth, supportive bone, and soft tissues. This can be immensely beneficial during the treatment planning for dental implants and other surgical procedures. We may also recommend a scan to help us better diagnose periodontal problems that are not initially visible to the naked eye.
Additional technological advancements include, Osstell Beacon, for implant stability and Nexus system to treat patients effectively and safely.
