When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Martin B. Sanders, DDS, NDBA, Leslie M. Sanders, DDS, and David H. Sanders, DDS and their staff use the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.
Our practice uses magnifying loupes and bright LED lighting to enhance the precision of patient care.
Dentistry is micro-surgery. Using loupes and lighting enables us to create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just can’t fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.
In addition to allowing precise, close-up work, the light and loupes direct a beam of light directly on the teeth, minimizing glare for you.
Many dentists use air-driven “hand-pieces” (the dental term for “drills”).
Sanders Family Dental chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Martin B. Sanders, DDS, NDBA, Leslie M. Sanders, DDS, and David H. Sanders, DDS use Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
With digital x-rays we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital x-rays results in 1/2 the radiation exposure to you.
Laser Decay detection
Lasers can be used to diagnose cavities. They can find hidden decay in teeth in early stages, and in some cases the decay can be reversed through hygiene and fluoride treatment and may never need filling. Intense LED light and x-rays also help detect decay in areas that the laser light won’t detect.
Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.
Martin B. Sanders, DDS, NDBA, Leslie M. Sanders, DDS, and David H. Sanders, DDS use intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intraoral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other dental specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
