Dentistry is both a science and an art. It takes years of education to understand the science behind restorative and cosmetic dentistry. It also takes great skill in working with your hands to be able to repair damaged teeth and gums. And it takes compassion to skillfully create a safe and comfortable environment for our patients. Lifetime Family Dental in Gilbert loves the art as much as the science of dentistry. Here are some of the modern dental technologies we use to bring science and art together for a better dental experience for you:

1. Dental implants

Dental implants are becoming more popular as an alternative to dentures. They restore your brilliant smile and they are more natural, easier to manage and longer lasting than dentures. We are able to replace one or all of your missing teeth with implants.

2. Sedation dentistry

Do you get nervous even thinking about a dental appointment? Sedation dentistry uses several methods to relax patients during a procedure. Various levels of sedation are available to turn what was once a fear-inducing experience into an easy and peaceful time in the dentist’s chair.

3. Digital x-rays

Lifetime Family Dental uses modern, low radiation x-rays with digital enhancement to provide a complete, accurate and safe picture of your teeth, gums and jaw. We can instantly view the images with you on a monitor screen by the chair so we can help you understand the full picture of your diagnosis.

4. Night guards

These are mouthpieces that you wear while you sleep. They have been proven to relieve bruxism and mild sleep apnea. Patients with migraines have also experienced relief when using a nightguard.

5. CEREC crowns

It used to be a multi-visit, two week process to have a permanent crown fitted to a damaged tooth. With CEREC technology, a crown can be fitted in one session. They are long-lasting and are a perfect solution for restoring a weakened tooth to maximum strength.

 

These are just several of the modern dental technologies we use at Lifetime Family Dental to bring you better health and a confident smile. They don’t replace the need for twice daily brushing and flossing, but they are another tool in our hands to bring art and science together for your benefit. Call us today to schedule your next cleaning and checkup. Be sure to ask us about our advanced technologies. We are always happy to share our passion with our patients!
