CEREC technology simplifies the age-old process of creating a new, customized dental crown for the better. Now, what used to take multiple appointments only requires a single visit of a patient’s time, and the quality of the final result is still maintained at a very high level. We look forward to helping you rebuild your smile’s strength and confidence in record time.
Do you regularly experience pain in or around the jaw? TMJ disorder may be the culprit. This chronic condition can disrupt your quality of life and produce truly debilitating symptoms if it’s left untreated – that’s why Aesthetic Dentistry of Wickford wants to address it with dedicated therapy. We can restore much-needed harmony and health to your smile.
Nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) is a mild sedative that can help nervous or anxious patients of all ages feel more relaxed in the treatment chair. We’ll administer the gas through a small nasal mask, and the volume can be adjusted as needed to create the ideal experience. While you will remain conscious during treatment while breathing in nitrous oxide, strong feelings of contentment, relaxation, and even euphoria may occur that will take your mind away from the procedure itself. Better yet, patients can look forward to recovering very quickly after their appointment and being able to return to their regular routine.
Sleep apnea is a chronic disorder that can rob patients of much-needed rest and endanger their health. If you have been diagnosed with mild to moderate symptoms, please consider contacting our North Kingstown practice for further assistance. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by a blockage in the airway, which can often be successfully alleviated with a custom-made oral appliance that repositions the jaw and/or tongue. We look forward to helping you sleep easily through the night again!
While X-rays reveal important information about oral health that’s well-hidden underneath the tissue and tooth enamel, our advanced intraoral and extraoral cameras paint a clearer picture of the smile’s outer surfaces. This precise attention to detail is beneficial not only for our dentists and team members, but for our patients as well! We can refer to these visual aids when discussing diagnostic findings, potential treatment recommendations, and the effectiveness of your oral hygiene at home in order to help you feel fully informed and confident about your smile’s wellbeing.
Digital X-rays have transformed diagnostic care for the better, and that includes in the dental field. Instead of having to wait hours for film to develop in a darkroom, the highly detailed images our team captures will be available for viewing in mere seconds and can even be manipulated by state-of-the-art software (such as magnification and color-coding) in order to improve patient understanding. Better yet, any radiation exposure is dramatically reduced by up to 80% for a safer experience overall.
Identifying tooth decay as early as possible is an important priority for our dental team. That’s why we regularly utilize DIAGNOdent technology during routine checkups. The process is simple – a laser diode will capture a baseline wavelength that represents healthy teeth before scanning the rest of your tooth surfaces. Any variations to this wavelength will represent weakened tooth enamel or outright cavities that need our attention. This modern tool is so precise that we can even detect very minor decay that’s located in tricky areas of the mouth or even not yet visible to the naked eye.
Periodontal therapy, aesthetic gum recontouring, and other services that directly involve the soft oral tissue shouldn’t have to be dreaded. Here in North Kingstown, Dr. Verbeyst and Dr. Morisseau have chosen to invest in a state-of-the-art Navigator Diode laser for precise and highly comfortable treatment – in fact, many of our patients don’t even require local anesthetic with this instrument. This technology also minimizes the presence of post-operative symptoms, such as oral swelling and bleeding, and accelerates the healing process as well.
