Advanced Technology Keeps Your Checkups Comfortable

Enjoying a beautiful smile has never been easier than it is right now at Dentistry At Somerset. We use an impressive list of advanced dental technology to ensure that you receive excellent and efficient care:

  • iTero Cavity Detector – This electronic cavity detector helps us catch decay that’s invisible to the naked eye.
  • Digital X-rays – We get crisper images, and you’ll be exposed to up to 90 percent less radiation.
  • Intraoral Cameras – You can see inside your mouth just like your dentist does with this technology.
  • Panoramic X-rays – We can create a 3-D image of your head for an up-close look at your teeth, bones, roots, and nerves. This is especially helpful to prepare for treatments like root canals and dental implants.
  • Ultrasonic Cleaning Equipment – This technology makes your cleanings more comfortable and effective.
  • DentalVibe – Getting an anesthetic injection is much more comfortable when the pain signals at the injection site are blocked.

We want you to be happy with your treatment here, so we also offer conscious sedation in the form of laughing gas to help you relax. Almost immediately after breathing in the gas, you’ll begin to feel light and euphoric. This will last as long as the gas is administered and will immediately vanish when the gas is removed. You’ll also have access to weighted blankets, aromatherapy, and pillows in a private care room to help you relax during your treatment.
