At Hedgecock Dental, we’re proud of our dedication to continuing education and our investment in the latest dental techniques and technologies. For our patients, better technology means:
Air abrasion uses a small but powerful stream of air and particles that works like a tiny sandblaster to remove areas of decay, while conserving healthy tooth structure. Air abrasion eliminates the need for a dental drill in many cases, which puts patients with dental anxiety at ease.
CariFree® is one of the best professional systems on the market for helping patients combat tooth decay. CariFree® has a comprehensive line of products to fit your needs. CariFree® products help balance the pH in your mouth and create a more alkaline environment that inhibits the formation of decay, cavities, or dental caries.
Digital x-rays are much safer and more convenient than traditional x-rays of the past. Digital x-rays use less radiation so they are safer for the human body, and can be taken in a matter of moments right from the dental chair. Patients are able to see their x-rays on the screen alongside the doctor to give them a better understanding of their oral health.
Intraoral cameras give us a whole new level of insight to your oral health. In the past the only way we could get a good look at the surfaces in your mouth was through the magic of sight and the help of a tiny dental mirror. Today, intraoral cameras give us high resolution images of the most hard to reach places in your mouth for earlier detection of disease and decay.
Our DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection technology allows us to detect areas of decay earlier than ever before. In the past we could only detect decay once it became visible to the naked eye. With the help of a low level laser light, we are able to diagnose and treat areas of decay before they become more problematic.
At Hedgecock Dental, we want our patients’ dental experiences to be as relaxed and comfortable as possible. That’s why we’ve invested in The Wand® painless injection technology. The Wand® uses small pulsing vibrations to block nerve receptors in the brain, allowing us to administer injections with virtually no pain or discomfort for the patient.
T-Scan technology allows us to see where we couldn’t before using traditional occlusal indicator methods. Digital software helps us measure the forces in your mouth and your bite. We are able to identify premature contacts, high forces, and the interrelationship of occlusal surfaces. This helps us eliminate destructive forces on a new restoration, minimize adjustments, and balance your teeth and bite with precision accuracy.
