At Brighter Smiles Dental we continue to avail ourselves of new technology that will benefit you. We have been using the new Diagnodent to help detect cavities in the pits and fissures of your teeth with laser light for almost a year now, and it is a great diagnostic aid. We have also installed the newest electric handpiece on the market, which operates with greater speed and torque than the previous air-driven handpieces. This results in procedures such as fillings and crown preparations being completed far more quickly, with less annoying noise and vibration, and hence greater comfort for you.

Over the past year I have completed several courses in the fabrication and use of a special non-invasive biteguard for migraine sufferers which may help to reduce the number of headaches without medication. This appliance is FDA approved and particularly helpful for those who wake up with migraines. It also serves as a biteguard for those who grind their teeth (brux) at night, preventing wear to the teeth, periodontal damage, and muscle pain from bruxism. If you suffer from either condition, please call the office to set up an appointment for a free consultation to discuss how this appliance may help you.

We look forward to seeing you at your next appointment!
