Dental technology gives patients better care.
Your enjoyable dental experience depends on your comfort, safety, and the competency of your care. Dr. Lang and his dental team in Middletown utilize the latest technological advances in dental equipment and techniques in order to ensure your satisfaction with your visit and your continued excellent health.
KaVo (Soft Tissue Laser)
Get the treatment you need, with laser precision Dr. Lang utilizes the KaVo soft tissue laser for treatments that previously required more invasive instruments such as a scalpel. Enjoy more effective care with virtually no pain, no need for stitches or incisions, and even faster recovery time. Because the KaVo laser disinfects as it removes tissue, soft tissue laser treatments are less prone to infection. Often, it’s quicker for Dr. Lang to use the laser, too, reducing your treatment time.
The DIAGNOdent is an exciting new dental technology that allows us to find cavities (even when they are just beginning) on the chewing surfaces of back teeth. Such cavities would have been missed by previous detection methods. The DIAGNOdent is a small, portable laser unit that detects the cavity and that alerts us with an audible signal and a numerical readout, providing information about the cavity’s size. The value of this product is that we can stop cavities in their infancy, whereas in the past they would have had to become significantly bigger before we could find and treat them. Just like other areas of medicine and dentistry, early detection and treatment is of immeasurable value in preserving your health.
You can see what Dr. Lang sees! By using an intraoral camera, you will have a greater understanding of your oral health and of the treatments that Dr. Lang is prescribing for you. The team’s use of this technology goes a long way in educating patients about their oral health, while lessening the feelings of anxiety that some patients have while visiting the dentist.
Digital photography gives Dr. Lang instant images to use for cosmetic imaging or to keep on file to track your progress. Digital images can be saved electronically and are more efficient than traditional photographs. Plus, digital photos show more detail and don’t have to be taken off-site for development.
