Dr. Hope and his team are constantly improving the ways patients can expect their dental care. With digital imaging, radiation exposure is kept at a minimum, or about 90% less exposure than traditional radiographs. Dr. Hope also implements intra-oral imaging and CAD/CAM software to increase diagnostic accuracy and provide patients with an educational virtual tour of their smiles, so they can see the preview of their brand new smiles before any dental work is done.
The use of laser assisted therapy for treating periodontal disease is raising the bar in providing painless restorative dentistry. From sculpting the gums to removing tongue ties and strong frenums or decontaminating periodontal pockets, laser dentistry provides better results and significantly less discomfort than dental surgery. Instead, there’s no discomfort, no bleeding and no stitches. Patients who would typically require surgery may be able to eat and drink normally in the same day.
Dental Intra-oral cameras are a valuable aspect of improving diagnostic abilities as well as showing patients exactly what is going on in their mouths. With the use of digital intra-oral cameras, Dr. Hope can better explain the clear and precise digital images of your mouth, teeth and gums in detail, so you can best understand the reasons behind your dental health diagnosis and be a part of co-diagnosing your dental needs.
