All too often, patients can feel like they’re left in the dark when it comes to what the dentist and hygienist are seeing inside their mouth. Thankfully, intraoral cameras can provide new insight! This technology comes in the form of a pen-sized camera that our team members guide around your teeth and gums, capturing high-resolution images that are transferred to a TV monitor in the operatory. Dr. Mesh can refer to these images when discussing possible concerns and your treatment plan, giving you a whole new perspective on your oral healthcare journey.
Have you ever had an impression of your teeth made with dental putty? This experience is not a pleasant one – in fact, some patients even gag on the material. That’s why Dr. Mesh has invested in digital, no-contact impressions for a simpler and more comfortable experience. We’ll simply use a handheld device to scan your teeth, stitching a large number of images into a comprehensive, there-dimensional model. This process also yields a higher degree of accuracy, resulting in a much smaller chance of needing retakes later on.
Digital X-rays are a crucial part of diagnosing dental problems – after all, there are many potential problems that can’t be discerned with just the naked eye. Thankfully, Tarpon Shores Dental has invested in a big update from traditional film for speedier image capture, higher resolution X-rays, and a safer experience overall. Any radiation exposure is dramatically reduced, and the images can easily be transferred and stored when needed as well.
Instead of traditional scalpels, our team is happy to have invested in a state-of-the-art alternative for periodontal therapy: soft tissue lasers. This precise, focused wavelength can remove diseased soft tissue from the mouth and eliminate harmful bacteria, leaving patients with healthier smiles. You can also expect much more comfort throughout the procedure, as well as minimized post-operative symptoms and a speedier recovery process.
If you have been diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a dentist like Dr. Mesh may be able to help you finally experience a restful night with customized oral appliance therapy. These devices are designed to comfortably reposition the tongue and/or jaw in order to maintain a clear airway while patients sleep. Unlike traditional CPAP machines, this type of treatment is comfortable, quiet, and easy to use even while on vacation, leading to more successful results.
Dental phobia is a very common problem among patients of all ages, many of whom even avoid needed appointments because of it. At Tarpon Shores Dental, our team strives to make this experience as comfortable and pleasant as possible. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry and other anxiety-relieving services that can help you feel genuinely at ease throughout the treatment process. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you are interested in learning more.
