The Importance of Dental Technology

Schedule an Appointment
Blog Post Image

Modern dentistry has made great strides in creating new technology and equipment that makes the patient experience more comfortable and efficient. Dr. Sam Carroll, your premiere Yuma general dentist, believes that equipping his office with state-of-the-art technology not only makes the patient experience better, but it also helps him perform procedures that are more accurate and precise. Here’s some information about some of the technology you’ll find at Sam Carroll, DMD.

3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography

Cone Beam Computed Tomography, CBCT scans your face and creates a 3D precise replica of your jawbone, teeth, and mouth. This image is important for Dr. Carroll to plan more accurate implant placement procedures. Our goal is to achieve an excellent result, with the highest predictability, which means that implant surgery is safer and more efficient for you.

CEREC One-Day Crowns

CEREC has completely revolutionized the process of designing and fabricating a dental crown. What used to takes weeks to complete, can now be done during one short appointment at our office. A 3D image of your tooth is scanned directly to our CEREC machine after Dr. Carroll had custom designed and shaded it. The CEREC milling machine located in our office will then use high-quality porcelain to fabricate your crown while you wait. Dr. Carroll is then able to place your head and make any necessary adjustments before you leave. You’ll go home that same day with a beautiful, completed restoration that naturally complements your smile.

Invisalign and ClearCorrect with Your Yuma Dentist

Imagine being able to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing! Invisalign and Clear Correct have changed the game for busy adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth quickly and discreetly. Utilizing clear plastic aligners instead of traditional braces, both of these systems allow patients to wear the virtually invisible aligners to straighten their teeth in about 12-18 months. Because the aligners are removable, there are no diet restrictions or changes to your brushing and flossing routine as there is with traditional braces.

These are just a few of the advanced services and technology we offer at Sam Carroll, DMD. Give us a call today to learn more about what we have to offer and schedule your next appointment.

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

I was terrified of the dentist from past bad experience. My daughter had a traumatic experience at a local dentist as well. We have both started seeing Dr. Carroll and have had the most comfortable, reassuring experience. They are kind, knowledgeable and patient!! Thank you Dr. Carroll and Staff!! Second visit - 2/4/16 - Deep Clean Procedure and a Wisdom tooth extraction - Again, I can't say enough about my visit. The staff from the moment you walk in the door are professional and friendly. My procedure was 99.5% pain free and the extraction was 100% pain free. I was given information every step of the way and was made to feel comfortable at all times. This is an office with compassion, caring and understanding. I highly recommend this practice. I can't say thank you enough for the positive experience and dental work. Thank you!!

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"

Sam Carroll , DMD, is knowledgable about all the latest and most effective dental procedures and treatment to make you SMILE... I have seen a caring and gentle approach with the very young patients ( My Grandaughter) and the concern he had with my 90 year old Father. Very comfortable yet professional atmosphere at all times!
