Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:
Our advanced digital x-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.
With digital x-rays, we can view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your dental treatment.
Digital x-rays require much less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.
A Panoramic x-ray machine rotates around your entire head to take a 360-degree view of your teeth, sinuses, and the bone structure of your head and jaws. This provides a more complete image than standard x-rays. Panoramic x-ray imagery is a valuable resource for Dr. Spaulding to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.
The intra-oral camera is about the size and shape of a pen. It is used to record images of your teeth, gums, mouth, and tongue from inside your mouth. Due to its small size and sleek design, it is comfortable, easy to use, and able to view a wide range of angles. The intra-oral camera is a safe and effective tool that can be used with patients of every age.
The intra-oral camera is a highly valuable resource for both diagnosis and treatment planning. Each time we use the intra-oral camera, a new disposable cover is employed. This ensures your health and safety at all times. After your exam, images captured by the intra-oral camera may be digitally stored, printed out, or deleted.
The Cavitron is a handheld device used in periodontal deep cleaning. While scaling can be completed by hand, the Cavitron uses ultrasonic technology to remove calculus from teeth and gums quickly, gently and effectively.
With the Cavitron, patients enjoy a more comfortable experience and time spent scaling and polishing is decreased.
What is the secret to making a great impression? At Ross Bridge Dentistry, we use our intra-oral digital scanner to ensure that the impressions we take are accurate, efficient, and comfortable every time.
Impressions are necessary for the fabrication of dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Our hand-held intra-oral scanner takes 3-dimensional digital video impressions with proven accuracy. Even the most challenging cases can be accurately scanned with our intra-oral scanner.
Another benefit to you is reduced time. When we send precise digital scans to our lab, your restorations require less preparation work and can be fabricated more quickly. This means you can have your restoration placed and be enjoying the results sooner than with traditional impression methods.
In the past, you may have experienced dental trays that filled with a soft substance that hardened into an impression of your mouth and teeth. With the intra-oral scanner’s small hand-held wand, we can take accurate digital impressions quickly and easily, without tripping your gag reflex.
Even more, as we complete your scan, you will be able to view the impression on the monitor along with us. This allows you to see more precisely why we have recommended restoration for your oral health needs.
We look forward to seeing you again at your next appointment with us. We love to make a great impression.
Botox® Facial Fillers
We offer Botox® Cosmetic dermal fillers. Enhance your appearance and regain your youthful beauty with Botox® treatments.
What are JUVÉDERM® and JUVÉDERM Voluma® and how do they work?
JUVÉDERM® is a collection of cosmetic fillers, each made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in skin that helps it retain moisture, soft texture, and proper volume. JUVÉDERM® products are used to help restore skin to its age-correct texture and volume and to reverse the effects of wrinkles and skin volume loss.
Why should I consider JUVÉDERM® products?
Skin volume loss and wrinkling can cause your face to look tired or older than it should. By choosing treatment with JUVÉDERM® products, you can restore the youthful look and feel of your skin.
How many treatments will I need to see results?
Most patients see their desired results in only one treatment.
How long will the results last?
The results with JUVÉDERM® products generally last for about 9-12 months for a single treatment.
Is there anything I need to do after the treatment?
For the first 24 hours following treatment with JUVÉDERM® products, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive exposure to sun or heat, and alcoholic beverages. If this is not followed, you may experience some minor temporary redness, swelling, or itching at the injection site.
Does treatment with JUVÉDERM® products require any incisions in the skin?
No, there are no incisions required with treatment, which means that recovery time is minimal.
How will I know if JUVÉDERM® products are right for me?
Ask our doctor for a consultation and recommended treatment options. We will consider your personal goals, overall health, and any medications you are taking when advising you whether JUVÉDERM® products may be right for you.
Our office is equipped with modern air abrasion technology. We utilize a small handheld device to blow a stream of air and tiny aluminum oxide particles against your tooth. This can be used to safely blast away tooth decay and remove surface stains. Air abrasion may also be used as part of a cosmetic or restorative treatment to prepare a tooth for bonding or to repair cracked or worn teeth.
