The Wand!

Have you ever heard a horror story about a patient’s mouth that was not “numbed” before a procedure? One of the most common horror stories coming out of dentist’s offices are about the anesthetic, or “numbing”, shot before a dental procedure is performed. Old Milton Dental uses a new tool that provides anesthetic quickly and is painless! Get ready to read about “The Wand”!

The Wand is a new dental tool that uses great technology to deliver local anesthetic. The delivery of the anesthetic is controlled by an advanced computer technology. The Wand looks like a ballpoint pen, with a tiny needle ejecting out the bottom. The anesthetic is delivered to the patient before the needle touches the gum. The computer controls the amount and speed of the anesthetic to maintain comfort for the patient.

How does this affect you? Most dental patients fear the prick and the sting of anesthetic, even if they have never had a bad experience before. The Wand eliminates these fearful perceptions of a dentist visit. The Wand makes the numbing process entirely painless. The anesthetic is delivered before the needle even touches your gums! All fear and horror stories can be put in the past!

Old Milton places your comfort and satisfaction as our top priority. The Wand guarantees your comfort while being numbed before a dental procedure. You can be confident in our promise of ensuring your comfort while you are in the dentist chair. Explain the process of The Wand to your children who may be scared of coming to the dentist. Visit Old Milton Dental to learn more about The Wand and the comfort and satisfaction we promise!

Digital X-Rays

At Old Milton Dental, we care about your experience in addition to the work we perform. Our office continually seeks for new technology that allows our skilled professional dental staff to provide optimum service without sacrificing your comfort. One of the technologies we use regularly are digital x-rays. This blog entry will give you more insight into our decision to use digital x-rays regularly.

Digital x-rays are simply internal pictures of the mouth. There are two types of digital x-rays, intraoral and extraoral. The purpose for your visit determines which x-rays will be used.

Intraoral x-rays capture very detailed images of a tooth’s structure. The detailed image shows any problematic areas in the tooth. These include cavities, the health of the tooth’s root, as well as monitoring developing teeth. These details enable our professional staff to diagnose and treat specific needs. Intraoral x-rays are the more common of the two types of x-rays.

In contrast, extraoral x-rays take pictures of a larger area of the mouth. These types of x-rays are more common with TMJ or jaw issues. These can be extremely beneficial as they reveal the growth and development between the teeth and the jaw.

The storage of these digitized images are also advantageous. The images are stored on a computer, which is a major benefit that is often overlooked. Once the images are on the computer, the Old Milton Dental staff can view the x-rays in more detail. We can zoom to see all areas of the tooth or oral region. This enhanced image ensures the tooth is diagnosed appropriately. Our patients are also able to see their tooth as the digital x-ray can be seen on the computer or a television screen. Knowing our patients understand the diagnosis and problem with their teeth is critical to Old Milton Dental.
