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.
