OralID™ utilizes advanced fluorescence technology to identify small oral abnormalities and other possible signs of pre-cancerous cells that may not be visible to the naked eye. With just a simple, two-minute examination, our team can identify catch oral cancer at much earlier stages, thus saving lives. Dr. Hamlett recommends that all patients who are seventeen years or older attend an annual screening with OralID ™.
The DIAGNOdent® is a small, portable laser that allows us to find cavities on the chewing surfaces of back teeth — even when they are just beginning and would have been missed by previous detection methods. The value is that we can stop cavities in their infancy, whereas in the past they would have to be significantly bigger before we could find and treat them. Just like other areas of medicine and dentistry, early detection and treatment is of immeasurable value in preserving your health.
Biolase laser technology allows for greater comfort and efficiency in performing manipulations or in the recontouring of soft tissue. Biolase lasers require less pain management, promote faster healing, and are less invasive than traditional lasers. By taking advantage of laser technology, Dr. Hamlett is able to perform delicate procedures, while reducing your feelings of fear and anxiety that come with older techniques.
Digital Radiographs (X-Rays)
Digital radiographs are a technological advancement that results in less exposure to radiation for our patients and an almost instantaneous picture for our team. Unlike traditional, film-based radiographs, digital radiographs often show more detail and can be archived in our system for future reference and comparison. Thanks to digital X-rays, you will appreciate a more comfortable visit with less waiting and quicker treatment.
An intraoral camera lets you see inside your mouth during both treatment planning and dental procedures. Our intraoral camera displays your teeth on a video screen, allowing Dr. Hamlett to walk you through your proposed treatment. The use of this camera allows us to work with you as a team to meet your dental care goals. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and to discuss your treatment options with you. We want you to picture how your appearance will improve with dental care, giving you all the more reason to smile.
Digital photography gives Dr. Hamlett instant images to use during your treatment. Dr. Hamlett can use the photos to explain exactly what you can expect during your visit. Digital images also can be saved electronically for future reference and are more efficient than traditional photographs that show less detail and must be taken off-site for development.
Tekscan is a pressure-mapping technology used to check bite pressures after you have had restorative dental work. By utilizing this technology, Dr. Hamlett is able to ensure that your bite is natural and comfortable, which helps prevent tension in the jaw and muscles of the face and neck. It can also serve as a helpful diagnostic tool for those dealing with TMJ-issues, enabling us to identify the root cause of pain so we can treat it directly.
