When we see patients at Overmeyer Family Dental we get a lot of questions about dental technology. Patients are often worried that there’s still a lot of pain and misery associated with seeing the dentist but those patients don’t realize how much dental care has changed over the years!
We’re proud of the technological advances that our Orlando dentist office can offer. We have some of the most state-of-the-art equipment and procedures in the industry and we have them all so that you can get better care!
Advanced Imaging Technology
Traditional X-ray technology produces images that aren’t too clear. There’s also a lot of radiation generated, making them a health concern for a lot of people. We use state-of-the art digital X-rays that not only produce far less radiation – they’re also instant and incredibly clear!
Our digital X-rays let us get a far better look at your mouth than traditional X-rays can provide. The images they produce let us identify and diagnose issues before they become serious. We’ll be able to see cavities, gum disease, and all kinds of problems while they’re still easily treatable, affording you with cheaper and more efficient solutions!
We can also take panoramic digital images that give us the same digital clarity! We can plan orthodontic, surgical, and cosmetic treatments with perfect precision!
Gum disease treatment and therapy used to be painful and repairing gums after the fact used to be painful! There were scalpels, cutting, stitches, and long, difficult recoveries to deal with. Modern dental technology has allowed us to advance beyond the need to cut and slice – we can do a lot of our treatments with lasers!
Treating gum disease can be done faster, easier, and more efficiently than ever before with PerioLase, our state-of-the-art periodontal treatment system! We won’t need to poke or prod with PerioLase!
Orthodontic Treatment That’s Faster Than Ever!
Getting a straight smile used to take years! Today’s technology has moved far beyond that – we can straighten your crooked teeth into a perfect smile in just six months! With Six Month Smiles we can close your gaps, straighten crooked teeth, and get you the smile you’ve always dreamed of with so much speed it’s amazing.
Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic treatment designed to move the teeth that make a difference for your smile: the ones at the front of your mouth. By focusing just on those teeth you can get a smile that looks great without having to wait for each little technical bit of movement that traditional orthodontics would treat. This makes our Six Month Smiles solution the perfect treatment for adults wanting a straighter smile!
Advanced Dental Appliances
There are several reasons why you may need an oral appliance. Most commonly it’s due to one of two problems: TMD or sleep apnea. These conditions can both cause loss of sleep, daytime fatigue, and a whole host of other uncomfortable and painful side effects!
Thankfully we are able to use a variety of advanced oral appliances to treat symptoms and relieve pain! All of our oral devices are custom built to fit you and provide amazing results!
- Night guards are designed to cushion your teeth and prevent teeth grinding (also called bruxism) and snoring. These devices are made of soft plastic and are easy to wear at night.
- Silent Nite is an anti-snoring guard that works by pulling your bottom jaw forward into a comfortable position while you sleep. It prevents snoring and has also been used to treat sleep apnea as well! By pulling your jaw forward Silent Nite prevents airway blockage when muscles and soft tissue relax!
- We also offer the TAP 3 Elite, one of the most advanced sleep apnea and snoring treatments available! This oral appliance is incredibly thin and low profile, providing an amazing level of comfort hard to find in a mouthpiece! It uses a small adjustable metal socket latch at the front of your mouth to hold your lower jaw comfortably in place.
