Advanced Technology for Better Results
Digital X-Rays & CBCT Scans
At Sea Lotus Dentistry, we invest in the latest dental technology to provide our patients with accurate, thorough care. Our digital x-rays give us a complete picture of your oral health in just minutes, leading to shorter appointment and waiting times. We also use Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) to take full-3D images of your mouth and get more insight into your dental health. These tools ensure that your diagnosis and treatment are as efficient and comfortable as possible.
Protect Teeth from Decay
Cavities start with tooth decay, which are “soft spots” in your enamel. If decay is caught in its earliest stages, it can often be reversed with fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that has the unique ability to “remineralize” and strengthen tooth enamel. During this treatment, Dr. Doan will apply a highly-concentrated fluoride varnish onto your teeth and leave it in place for several minutes. This starts the remineralization process, restores softened enamel, and prevents cavities from forming.
Shield Your Teeth from Cavities
Dental sealants protect your rear molars (some of your most cavity-prone teeth) from direct contact with bacteria and acid. During this completely painless and non-invasive treatment, Dr. Doan applies a liquid resin to your teeth after they have been cleaned. The liquid quickly hardens and forms a transparent barrier to keep oral bacteria, acid, and food particles from contacting your teeth. Dental sealants can last up to 10 years, making them a great long-term treatment option for children and others at high risk of forming cavities.
Avoid Gum Disease
It has been estimated that more than 50% of all American adults are affected by some form of gum disease. Signs that you may have periodontal disease include bleeding while you brush or floss, inflamed gums, and a receding gum line. If you notice these signs and symptoms, don’t wait to get treatment. Proper periodontal care can help you avoid this issue altogether and reverse its early stages. If left untreated, periodontal disease can result in tooth loss.
