Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:
Our advanced digital x-rays magnify and enhance your child’s teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your child’s teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.
With digital x-rays, we can view your child’s teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your child’s dental treatment.
Digital x-rays require much less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.
Nomad™ X-Ray Gun
The Nomad™ handheld x-ray system is battery-powered for completely cordless portability. With the Nomad™ gun, we can take accurate, efficient scans with less radiation exposure than most conventional systems. The Nomad™ is comfortable, and convenient, and can be used in any treatment room.
Soft Tissue Lasers
With soft tissue lasers at our disposal, Dr. Richards can provide precise high-quality treatments that are relatively pain-free, less invasive, and useful for a wide variety of dental treatments.
A laser is essentially a tiny beam of highly concentrated light. This beam can be used to provide pinpoint accuracy in treatments. Because the laser sterilizes the tissues and seals off blood vessels as it is used, the chance of infection or bleeding following laser treatment is minimal. The soft tissue laser is minimally-invasive, but highly effective.
With the highly versatile soft tissue laser, Dr. Richards can seal nerve endings and blood vessels and treat soft tissues simultaneously. This creates less stress on the gums, which significantly reduces both swelling and bleeding. Moreover, by using the soft tissue laser, Dr. Richards minimizes patients’ discomfort both during and after the treatment and lessens their recovery time.
Dr. Richards uses soft tissue laser technology to provide our patients with precise pediatric dental care with a comfortable experience.
