OUR DENTAL CLINIC USES STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY
Here at Joshua Colkmire Restorative & Cosmetic Dentistry, we are committed to giving our patients the best-quality treatment with the latest technology. Each time you come for an appointment, our tools and equipment should contribute to your safety, comfort, and overall oral health. Here is some of the technology we have installed in our office.
The Intra-Oral Camera
This miniature video camera is a patient favorite, because it allows you to see what’s going on inside your mouth in great clarity and detail on the screen.
Defeat your gum disease without pain with this product that Dr. Colkmire and Dr. Shafi can offer you. ARESTIN is a product that delivers a time-released antibiotic to kill the bacteria that causes gum disease. It looks like a powder, but it actually contains tiny microspores that fight infection.
Digital X-Rays reduce your radiation exposure by 75 percent compared to conventional oral X-rays. They also give Dr. Colkmire and Dr. Shafi a highly detailed, digital image of your teeth that gets downloaded instantly to the computer.
Have you ever wondered if it was OK to swallow during your dental procedure? Isolite is a suction device that keeps your mouth dry, but it is also a brilliant light that illuminates the oral cavity and eliminates shadows. This makes your dental procedure faster, more accurate, and more comfortable.
Oral DNA Testing
Could your genes make you more susceptible to inflammatory gum infections? Oral DNA testing can help to reveal your genetic predispositions so that we can treat you more effectively.
Custom-Made Sports Mouthguards
Play sports with a custom-fit mouthguard that allows proper breathing while running. In the U.S., five million teeth are knocked out each year. Don’t let yours be one of them. Whether you play football, hockey, soccer, baseball, or basketball, ask Dr. Colkmire and Dr. Shafi about getting a custom mouthguard.
