Dunes Dental Services’ strong points
We are now using the CariFree System, which allows us to better anticipate your likelihood of getting cavities. We can then make preventive recommendations, with the goal of lowering your risk of decay, and ensuring a longer life for the dental work you have already invested in and may opt for in the future. This assessment will allow us to provide homecare recommendations, dietary counseling, re-mineralization therapy of cavities just beginning, and treatment of this infection, all with the goal of lowering the incidence of decay and creating more predictable results for lasting dentistry.
We are using laser diagnosis of early decay or caries, the revolutionary new way to find even the smallest areas of tooth decay, even before they become visible on x-ray. This new technology allows us to target and treat all small problem areas before they turn into larger issues that require more complicated procedures and enables us to provide minimally invasive and tooth preserving treatment.
Our office is proud to provide our patients, besides “drill and fill,” a disease prevention program that will allow them to keep their teeth healthy for a very long time. Instead of a drill, a quick dab of gel or a thin film against an infected tooth could heal teeth from within. This technology is the first of its kind and it will make a trip to the dentist's office more pleasant;
Micro-IDent plus DNA test system, allows us to identify specific bacterial species and elaborate individualized antimicrobial therapy helping us stabilize the periodontal disease;
We use digital X rays which reduce radiation exposure up to 95% and improves the quality of the image enabling us to provide precise diagnostic;
We use only distilled, bio-film treated water in all the operatories and the latest sterilization equipment making your visit with us the safest.
