Gone are the days when dental offices booked cleanings using a pen and appointment book. Today’s dental practices utilize technology, say Dr. Chiann Gibson and the Naperville dentists at Smiles by Dr. Gibson, to provide more efficient services to its patients.
One thing a patient will notice as soon as he or she enters the Naperville dentists’ office is that each treatment room has a computer and TV monitor. But this technology isn’t just for your entertainment. As the Naperville dentists explain, this equipment is used to help Dr. Gibson and the staff better serve patients. By using the provided screens, the Naperville dentists at Smiles by Dr. Gibson can show you treatment options and help you plan future procedures.
The Naperville dentists at Smiles by Dr. Gibson and Associates also implement digital imaging to give you a preview of the planned results of your cosmetic dentistry. This digital imaging can show you how your smile will look before committing to a dental procedure, say the Naperville dentists. Using state-of-the-art technology, Dr. Gibson can show you how your smile has progressed from before to after using a series of digital photos.
The Naperville dentists at Smiles by Dr. Gibson use digital X-rays, which give more accurate, detailed results. This leads to more accurate diagnoses, helping the Naperville dentists catch problems in the early stages. Additionally, the Naperville dentists at Smiles by Dr. Gibson use laser technology to do such dental procedures as gum re-contouring and gum disease treatment. Laser re-contouring can help patients with gums that are aligned improperly, resulting in an imperfect smile. Some patients have gums that descend too far, covering a portion of the teeth. These patients may have a smile that shows far too much gum and not enough teeth as a result, the Naperville dentists explain, making them self-conscious about smiling. Through laser re-contouring, the Naperville dentists can use a soft tissue laser to trim away the excess gum in a process that is painless and can be accomplished without the complications of scalpel-created re-contouring.
According to the Naperville dentists, lasers can also be used to treat cold sores and perform biopsies. This procedure is used for recurring cold sore cases, wiping the cold sore away within one to three days. For patients that need biopsies, the Naperville dentists’ laser biopsy treatment can make the process low-pain with minimal recovery time. The laser gently removes the tissue sample so that it can be sent off for examination. Unlike traditional biopsies, laser biopsy treatment induces little to no bleeding, the Naperville dentists say.
As more technological advancements become available, the Naperville dentists at Smiles by Dr. Gibson will stay on top of them. Dr. Gibson and her staff are committed to providing the best possible treatment for patients, resulting in a healthier, happier experience for everyone who walks through the door.
