The Laser Scanner Finds Even Minute Cavities

Early Dental Cavity Detection - Laser Scanner PlymouthIt is important to be able to identify cavities in their earliest stages. With the Laser Scanner, even minute cavities are easily detected, letting Dr. Callow repair the cavity with just a small, invisible filling. In the past, when a patient complained of annoying tooth sensitivity, sometimes X-rays or an exam could not identify the cause. This would allow a cavity to grow larger until it was more noticeable, resulting in a larger filling to repair the damage. The Laser Scanner accurately zeros in on the problem so the source of discomfort can be removed to have you smiling once again.

What is Xylitol and How Can It Help My Dental Health?

What is Xylitol and How Can It Help My Dental Health?
Dental Health Care Plymouth MI
Found in fruits and vegetables, xylitol is a natural substance that even our own bodies create every day. In over 25 years of clinical research and testing, xylitol has been proven to be very effective in fighting tooth decay. It is an excellent replacement for sugar as it is a sweetener that does not harm your teeth. Studies reveal that it also helps overcome allergies and is now available as a nasal spray. Numerous dental associations in Europe have already endorsed its use in toothpaste, mouthwash, chewing gum, and even candy. We highly recommend it to control cavities and provide relief from allergies.

This hand tool uses high-frequency vibrations to enable us to remove deposits on your teeth faster than with regular scaling instruments. Your teeth have never felt so clean! As a bonus, most patients report less discomfort with the ultrasonic scaler.
