At Carrollton Smiles we are a patient driven practice and invest in the technology for the best dental care. Dr. Bhandaru listens to her patients’ needs and invests in technology and education that helps improve your oral health. We have available for you: 3-D imaging of jaws and airway, home sleep test to help you with diagnosis of sleep apnea, Periolase dental laser, which is the only laser proven to potentially grow bone lost due to periodontal disease, Digital X-rays to minimize radiation to you and Ozone therapy to aid with the healing process. We look forward to taking care of your dental needs with the latest in technology and expertise.
WatchPAT® is an innovative diagnostic Home Sleep Apnea Test (HSAT), FDA-approved and can help identify problems with sleep apnea in the comfort of your own home. Unlike sleep studies that are done in a medical laboratory or hospital, the device is easily worn at night and measures your sleeping and breathing patterns. It’s worn similarly as a wrist watch, so it’s comfortable and highly effective at diagnosing sleep apnea. Once diagnosed, we can help create a personalized treatment plan just for you.
LANAP® protocol is a new technology that is a laser-based treatment for gum disease. There is no cutting and suturing with the LANAP® protocol and patients typically report less pain and discomfort during and after the procedure, compared to traditional periodontal surgery.
3D imaging is a must-have in modern dental clinics. The PreXion offers the clearest, most precise image in the dental industry. Dr. Bhandaru utilizes this advanced scanning technology that generates 3-D images of nerve paths, bones, soft tissues, and other craniofacial structures for the most accurate treatments. While CBCT is not a conventional CT, it can produce similar images with far less radiation.
Ozone therapy has been a go-to option for many years and can help in treating a range of different dental conditions. By using concentrated O3, we can help with desensitization, whitening, caries treatment and even periodontal therapy. Ozone is safe and effective, so you can feel confident that the treatment will work for you. Prior to having ozone therapy implemented, you’ll come in for a complete consultation and exam.
Laser dentistry is ideal for a variety of different procedures and can help to promote healthier and fuller smiles. Dr. Bhandaru uses laser technology to enhance your smile while providing aesthetic treatment to your gums and lips. This technology can be utilized for frenectomies, laser disinfection, crown lengthening and even to remove moles on your lips. The lasers that Dr. B uses are incredibly safe and effective, so you can feel confident in the treatment being provided.
Dental x-rays are needed to help in maintaining a healthy, full smile. You will probably need x-rays taken at most of your appointments so that we can check for any changes and determine proper treatment. Some things that a dental x-ray will check for include:
Salivary pH testing is an essential biomarker to help us identify certain conditions. The test can help in identifying the pH levels of your mouth, which can have a direct impact on the health of your teeth and gums. We can offer treatment as needed after having pH testing performed.
