A cosmetic dentist in Indianapolis is incorporating the latest technologies into her practice – including 3D and digital imagery - in order to provide dental treatments that are safer, more comfortable, and more effective.
(Vocus) March 9, 2010 -- Dr. Marla Wilson and the staff at Premier Dental Care, a practice offering cosmetic dentistry in Indianapolis, believe in the abilities of new technology to help provide healthier teeth and gums. Dr. Marla Wilson is also confident that state-of-the-art equipment makes dental visits more comfortable and pleasant for her patients.
Dr. Wilson has been performing cosmetic dentistry procedures and restoring dental implants in Indianapolis for more than fifteen years. Over the course of her career she has seen dental technology change with the times, as x-rays and many other services have moved into the digital age. She has been at the forefront of utilizing these new tools, including Galileos 3D Technology, DEXIS digital x-rays, and the Digital Doc intra-oral camera. Dr. Wilson says these devices make it possible for her and her staff to take images of the patient’s mouth that greatly help them diagnose conditions and plan treatments.
Other new advances utilized by Dr. Marla Wilson include the DIAGNOdent laser cavity detector and the Air Abrasion system. DIAGNOdent is used to detect cavities in their earliest stages, and Air Abrasion involves a stream of aluminum oxide crystals used to remove tooth decay. The latter procedure can often be performed without anesthetic and is much more comfortable and well-liked by patients than the traditional drill.
In addition to the DIAGNOdent laser cavity detector, other laser dentistry technology is being put into effect at Dr. Wilson’s practice. The Waterlase® laser helps to accomplish a myriad of procedures without pain or discomfort, including gum disease treatment, tooth etching, cold sore removal, and more.
The TLC system is one of the most popular features at Premier Dental Care. It consists of an overhead, rotating flat screen LCD TV with the option of headphones which allows patients to watch their favorite TV program or movie from the DVD selection while receiving dental treatment. This advanced technology isn’t intended to treat patients’ oral health although it does aid in relaxation and allows patients to be more comfortable during their visit to Premier Dental Care. Dr. Wilson says patients often tell her how this makes dental appointments more pleasant and enjoyable.
By placing such an emphasis on technology and on providing gentle, effective care, Dr. Wilson says she is able to make dental treatments as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Dr. Wilson and her staff plan to continue their adoption of new materials and techniques as they become available.
