City Smiles stays on the forefront of technology to bring you the best of modern dentistry. Our paperless office is equipped with contemporary tools and deluxe amenities for an exceptional dental care experience.
During your checkup or new patient exam, we will take pictures of your teeth and gums with an intraoral camera and display them on a chairside monitor. Dr. Hill will use these images to explain his findings and suggested treatment options. Smile previews are also available with our digital imaging software or a wax up, which is a model of your smile altered to reflect the proposed benefits of specific therapies. These tools provide useful aids to help you decide which treatments are right for you.
Dr. Hill will scan your teeth for decay using a high-tech tool called DIAGNOdent. This gentle, effective laser identifies areas of demineralization, which are precursors to cavities. Early detection of decay means that you can keep more of your natural tooth during restoration.
Digital X-rays provide a comprehensive view of your oral health. They emit about 80% less radiation than traditional radiography, so they are safer for you and our environment. The images can be immediately viewed on chairside monitors and electronically transmitted to insurance companies and specialists.
Oral cancer kills about 7,500 American each year. Because early detection improves survival chances, Dr. Hill will use our vizilite to screen you for this deadly disease at your new patient exam and subsequent checkups. The vizilite system uses a special mouth rinse and light to identify suspicious lesions that require follow-up.
We have replaced invasive tools like scalpels and hooks with gentle, effective lasers. Dr. Hill uses a soft-tissue laser to perform a variety of procedures from cold sore treatment to cosmetic gum lifts. With laser therapy, there is minimal bleeding, and recovery time is faster. The laser seals as it goes, so you will not need stitches.
