Our Lilburn dentist office is state-of-the-art, with the latest technology to aid in preventive care and restorative treatment.
Air abrasion is a drill-less technology that allows the dentist or hygienist to remove tooth decay more quickly and comfortably. The air abrasion technology is used in a number of procedures including dental fillings, cosmetic tooth bonding and teeth whitening. Benefits of air abrasion include:
- No heat, sound, pressure or vibration
- Reduced need for anesthesia
- Allows for more conservative treatment by preserving healthy tooth structure
- Keeps the area dry and free of debris
The diode laser is useful in a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures. Using the dental laser, Dr. McCool can gently reshape gum tissue without the use of anesthetic. This improves the appearance of the smile, creating a natural curvature of the gum tissue to frame the teeth.
The lasers are especially useful during treatment for periodontal disease or gingivitis thanks to antiseptic properties of the laser. The soft tissue dental laser can also be used to treat cold sores, benign tumors, frenectomy and more.
An NTI-tss is a small night-guard that fits comfortably between your teeth, preventing the teeth from coming into contact with one another and grinding. The NTI-tss device is FDA approved and reduces clenching and grinding by up to 66 percent.
Prophy-Jet Air Polishing
The Prophy-Jet is an air polishing system that we use during certain dental cleaning treatments and other procedures. This devices uses a high power, powder slurry to remove stains, plaque and other soft debris from the surface of the tooth.
The Diagnodent is a device that is used for the early detection of dental caries, or tooth cavities. This hand held laser device can easily detect the smallest lesions, for the highest level of preventive care.
Oraqix is a needle free system for scaling and root planing procedures. It is the only FDA approved needle free anesthetic for such purposes.
In certain cases, Dr. McCool will perform treatment with the aid of a dental microscope. This technique allows him to treat problems with a higher degree of accuracy and success.
Dr. McCool takes patient safety very seriously. We use a steam autoclave to disinfect and sterilize dental instruments prior to treatment.
