Early diagnosis... early intervention... minimally invasive dental care!

Micro dentistry is a combination of technologies which enables early detection of dental diseases and early, non-invasive treatment. http://thomastinneydds.com/micro-dentistry

Just imagine this: During your routine check up we discover a cavity so small that no major tooth damage has yet occurred. Without shots or drills we remove decay using air abrasion and place a tooth colored filling. This is possible using micro dentistry technologies. Or, imagine this: At the same appointment, we discover a filling which has fractured due to bite disease or undetectable tooth decay. This fracture is too small to see with the naked eye, and decay can not be detected by x-rays. Only by magnification can this problem be detected.

Early intervention is possible, non-invasive dental care is completed. Magnification, intra-oral microscope technology and tooth decay detection dyes have prevented the need for a crown or root canal. This is a common occurrence! Micro dentistry can also prevent pre-mature loss of teeth! http://thomastinneydds.com/elk-grove-cosmetic-dentistry-f...

Magnification: Micro dentistry uses binocular microscopes, intra-oral microscopes (40-100 times magnification) and telescopic lenses before, during and after procedures.

More Accurate Than X-Rays: Micro dentistry uses magnification, lasers, fiber optics and tooth decay detection dyes to detect tooth decay. These technologies are more accurate than x-rays. Research demonstrates that x-rays and traditional instruments detect only 24% of early tooth decay.

Lasers: Lasers are also used to treat gum disease. Laser energy passes through the soft tissues penetrating into areas inaccessible to traditional instruments. Lasers kill more bacteria microscopically than traditional instruments, and they do it with no damage to surrounding healthy gums.

Air Abrasion technology uses a 27 micron particle beam to remove cavities without shots and without drills. Decay is "air brushed" away before it gets big enough to drill out. Air abrasion removes the least amount of tooth possible, making the smallest, most invisible fillings possible to achieve the longest lasting fillings possible. Microscopes, lasers, fiber optics and tooth decay detection dyes, detect this kind of tooth decay. X-rays cannot reveal these early stage cavities.

Intra-Oral Microscopes: Video camera and microscope technologies have combined as "intra oral cameras". The camera is about the size of a pen. Our microscope can zoom in 40-100x sending color pictures to a chair side monitor. Now you can see what the doctor sees! Microscopes reveal what the naked eye cannot see. Fillings develop micro-fractures and gaps which cause tooth decay. Only a microscope can reveal this early stage of failure. Early detection means smaller, longer lasting restorations.

Early detection and treatment can prevent the loss of teeth or the need for root canal therapy and larger, more costly restorations (all risks or complications of tooth cracks and fractures). Micro dentistry allows patients to see and understand what's going on in their own mouth. Now, you can make better decisions in planning for your dental health care.
