Mouthguards are an essential piece of sporting equipment for preventing mouth injury during sports & other physical activity. Mouthguards act as a cushion, protecting your teeth, tongue, gums, lips & cheeks from impacts to the face. Though mouthguards can be purchased in stores, the most effective, best-fitting & comfortable mouthguards are custom-fitted by your dentist. With a custom mouthguard from your dentist, you can keep smiling no matter what the competition throws at you. Call Pearl Dentistry & Implants today for a mouthguard consultation.
Laser dentistry is ushering in a new revolution of drill-less dentistry. With this laser technology, dentists can now perform a wide range of dental procedures on teeth, gum & bone more comfortably than ever. With the traditional dental drill, the primary cause of discomfort is a combination of heat, vibration & pressure, but laser dentistry makes this issue a thing of the past. With laser dentistry, you will experience fewer shots & less discomfort, as well as reduced bleeding, swelling &, in many cases, the need for pain medication. Contact Pearl Dentistry & Implants to learn more about laser dentistry.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a great tool for patients who may be uneasy about their dental procedures. The beauty of laughing gas is that your dentist can constantly adjust your level of sedation during the procedure & once it is shut off, the effects stop almost immediately. A few minutes after the procedure is complete, you’ll be back to normal!
Pearl Dentistry & Implants dentists are certified to administer nitrous oxide for nervous patients. Call today to schedule your appointment or to see if you’re a candidate for nitrous oxide sedation!
We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images. These images require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film-type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film, which must be developed & then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor. A picture of the tooth is instantaneously transmitted onto the monitor in the treatment room so we can see your teeth & surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact us for more details or to make an appointment!
Mercury amalgam (silver) fillings may be hazardous to your health. At Pearl Dentistry & Implants, we believe that the overall health of our patients always comes first. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to only use new & advanced fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury. It’s just one more way that we show our patients how much we care. Your safety & smile are our primary concerns!
