We’re living in an age that’s increasingly digital. We rely on GPS instead of traditional roadmaps to get us where we need to go, and we even carry miniature computers in our pockets!
As technology becomes increasingly powerful, it’s no surprise that we’ve found ways to improve dental care with the help of computers.
At A Perfect Smile, we’ve invested in state-of-the-art technology to provide more precise and comfortable care for our patients.
Read on to learn more about how we’re embracing the latest advances in dentistry and the ways you can benefit! Then, if you’re looking for excellent, holistic dental care in Falmouth, ME, give us a call at (207) 536-3508.
Holistic Care In A High-Tech Setting
At A Perfect Smile, we believe that providing top-notch holistic dental care — focused on your overall health, not just the health of your teeth — isn’t possible without adopting the latest that dental technology has to offer.
Here are some of the ways we’re using dental technology:
- Intraoral camera and monitors allow you to see what Dr. Nelson is seeing. We believe that this is a powerful educational tool that allows you to fully understand and own your treatment!
- Laser cavity detection allows us to identify the earliest signs of tooth decay, even before any visible signs appear! This lets us prevent further damage to the tooth and reduces your chances of needing more extensive curative treatments down the road.
- Ultrasonic cleaning allows us to more thoroughly and comfortably clean your teeth during routine visits! By using ultrasonic vibration, this technology allows us to keep unpleasant sounds and scraping to a minimum.
Going Paperless To Protect The Environment
As dental professionals, we always abide by the motto, “Do no harm.” Of course, this applies to our patients, but we wanted to take it a step further! We want to “do no harm” to the environment as well.
That’s why we have become a paperless office! Digitizing records and other documents cuts down on waste. Plus, it’s convenient for our administrative staff and you the patient as well.
In addition to going paperless, we’re committed to renewable resources and using environmentally safe products. We’ve also created an office-wide recycling program!
Keeping Up With Advances In Dentistry
In our high-tech world, things are constantly changing. The same is especially true with dentistry. The field is constantly evolving, and if we want to continually provide excellent care for our patients, we have to keep up!
That’s why our knowledgeable staff is committed to staying abreast of the latest trends, techniques, and technology with continuing education.
Dr. Nelson alone takes up to 200 hours of continuing education courses every year.
Recently, he’s completely “hands-on” courses on topics such as sleep apnea treatments, one-visit root canals, dental crowns and bridges, composite bonding, non-surgical gum disease treatment, and more! You’ll feel comfortable knowing you’re receiving care from someone with such extensive expertise and training.
Dr. Nelson is also committed to learning from his peers. He does this through active membership in a handful of professional organizations, including the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
He truly is a lifelong student of dentistry!
