Dental Technology & Patient Comforts
Safe, Modern Care for an Exceptional Experience
We want you to enjoy your time with us, so we’ve created a safe, comfortable environment where you can receive the quality care you deserve. Dr. Ramsey and our entire team stay current with modern dentistry to deliver an outstanding dental care experience each time you visit.
During your checkup or new patient exam, Dr. Ramsey will take pictures inside your mouth with an intraoral camera and display them on a chairside monitor. He’ll use these images to explain his findings and help you decide the best treatment for your unique situation. A wax model showing the proposed benefits of suggested therapies is another useful decision-making tool we offer.
To aid in accurate and efficient diagnoses, we use a state-of-the-art Panorex X-ray machine. This high-tech machine provides a two-dimensional image of teeth and supporting structures to help Dr. Ramsey identify areas of concern not easily seen during a visual or manual exam.
An oral cancer screening is a standard part of every checkup and new patient exam. Oral cancer claims the life of one American every hour and often goes undetected until it has spread to the neck and lymph nodes. Early detection greatly improves survival chances, so Dr. Ramsey conscientiously screens for this disease.
Dental anxiety is a common phobia, but it needn’t prevent you from receiving the care you need for a healthy smile. Dr. Ramsey employs a gentle acupressure technique for injections and offers safe, effective oral conscious sedation to relieve fears and promote a sense of calm. If you’re a candidate for sedation dentistry, you’ll simply take a sedative prior to your appointment and enter a state of deep relaxation. Dr. Ramsey will then perform your dental work, potentially reversing years of damage or neglect in a single session. He may use nitrous oxide, laughing gas, to enhance sedation. If you require IV sedation, an anesthesiologist will come to our office to administer sedation and monitor you throughout your procedure.
