Dentist in Aurora
At Smiles of Aurora, we strive to maintain a state-of-the-art office in which we feature many of the newest advances in dentistry.
Our operatory/treatment areas are maintained with new equipment for efficiency, patient comfort and safety. There are computers in each treatment room for patient education, as well as intraoral cameras to physically show the patient all areas of concern in their mouths.
We are also proud to employ all-digital x-rays, which subject our patients to significantly less radiation than traditional x-rays do.
We employ the newest sterilization machines and surface disinfectants available to ensure your peace of mind.
Dexis CariVuTM is a compact, portable caries detection device that uses patented transillumination technology.
What does that mean???
It allows Dr. Goetz and team to detect carious lesions and cracks. In addition, CariVu can aid in the identification of tooth decay by hugging the tooth and bathing it in a safe, near infrared light, this technology makes the enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb the light. This allows the clinician to see through the tooth, exposing it’s structure and the actual structure of any carious lesions with a very high degree of accuracy. This technology shows lesions at the beginning stages, revealing the extent of the conditions, allowing your Dr/hygienist to identify questionable areas and decide on a preventive course of action before significant damage has been done
Our advanced digital x-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis of dental diseases or problems. This digital x-ray allows us to take an image of your teeth and put it into an imaging program.
With this program, we are able to use a number of tools that will allow us to take a closer look at your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. Our dentist can examine small areas of decay between teeth and under existing fillings. Also, our digital x-ray can help detect bone loss due to periodontal disease, dental infections and abscesses.
Our team has invested in training and technology to make diagnosis and treatment as accurate and comfortable as possible. For more information about our technology, please contact our Aurora dentist.
