Dr. Lassiter invests in state-of-the-art technology and ongoing education because it allows us to bring our patients exceptional dental care. Leading-edge equipment makes dental procedures more accurate, efficient, and comfortable for our patients.
Read on to learn more about the latest technology you'll find at Lassiter Family Dentistry.
3-D Cone Beam Imaging
Our 3-D Cone Beam delivers clear, precise, 3-D images of your teeth, mouth, jawbone, and jaw joints.
Dr. Lassiter uses these images to plan implant placement surgeries ahead of time for more accuracy and precision during the procedure. Planning ahead and using an implant guide during surgery produces the best outcomes for our patients, who enjoy a 95 percent success rate with dental implants in Kingsland.
It's easy to make good decisions about your dental care when you understand the problems you're facing. Our pen-sized, intraoral camera fits comfortably inside your mouth and allows us to take color pictures of your teeth and soft tissues. So when you can see a cavity developing, it's easy to understand why it's best to treat the problem as soon as possible.
The intraoral camera helps us share exactly what we see in full-color pictures with our patients so they can feel confident about their decisions for their smiles.
The laser has been a helpful tool in dental offices for over 50 years. The dental laser combines light and heat for precision, is minimally invasive, and helps streamline procedures and accelerate healing for our patients. Dr. Lassiter uses the laser for gum contouring, periodontal treatment, tooth fillings, and other types of treatment.
For example, the laser provides accuracy and precision when removing infected tissue during periodontal treatment. It also sterilizes the area for quicker and more comfortable healing.
Have you ever felt fearful or anxious about visiting your dentist? You are not alone. Unfortunately, many Americans feel this way, and sadly, it sometimes keeps them from getting the dental care they need.
At Lassiter Family Dentistry, we offer solutions for fearful patients with nitrous oxide. This type of sedation is a gas you breathe throughout your procedure that helps to keep you feeling calm and relaxed. It's safe for both children and adults, and it doesn't leave lingering side effects, which means you can easily and comfortably return to your day and your normal activities after your procedure.
If you think that you might benefit from using nitrous oxide during your dental appointment, please talk with Dr. Lassiter about your options.
Root canals have a reputation for being painful; however, this couldn't be further from the truth! When you need a root canal, it's likely because your tooth is infected, which is the source of your pain and discomfort. Root canal treatment actually eliminates your infection and alleviates your pain.
Modern root canal treatment is even more comfortable and streamlined with rotary endodontic tools. These are flexible nickel-titanium, electric hand tools that make it easier for Dr. Lassiter to reach the infected tissue inside your tooth and comfortably remove it quickly.
Televisions in Treatment Rooms
The purpose of having televisions in each of our treatment rooms is twofold. First, the screens allow us to share images of x-rays and color photos of your teeth with you to provide the information you need to make decisions about the proper treatment for your smile.
Second, television screens allow you to enjoy some of your favorite movies or programs during your treatment.
