3D cone-beam imaging is a relatively new technology within dentistry, but it has already changed the way dentists are able to gather information about their patients. With this device, we’re able to make a three-dimensional X-ray image of a patient’s teeth, jaw, head, and surrounding soft tissues. This kind of image is not only extremely cool to look at, but it can also help us discover hidden infections, find the source of TMJ issues, and plan involved treatments like a tooth extraction or root canal therapy.
The TMJ is the name for the small joints that allow your jaw to move in all directions, giving you the ability to chew, speak, and laugh at Dr. Voto’s hilarious jokes. Like other joints in the body, it can sometimes fall victim to strain, injury, or arthritis, leading to a variety of painful symptoms such as a stiff and sore jaw that constantly pops and clicks. Dr. Voto can help you overcome this stubborn problem with a variety of soothing therapies right here in Owasso.
Does going to the dentist make you or your child feel a bit nervous or maybe even terrified? We’re able to successfully treat anxious patients every day with the help of sedation dentistry. Using safe and proven techniques, we’re able to calm frazzled nerves and protect patients from discomfort all at the same time.
If you snore, constantly feel exhausted, or have been experiencing problems with memory or focus lately, the problem could actually be the second most common sleep disorder in the country: sleep apnea. If you believe that you may have sleep apnea, or if you have already been diagnosed with it, Dr. Voto can help you rest easy with a custom-made oral appliance designed to keep your airway open throughout the night.
When most people think about the tools that dentists use on a daily basis, lasers probably don’t come to mind, but that’s a reality in our office! With our soft tissue laser, Dr. Voto can quickly eliminate bacteria hidden beneath the gum line, remove infected tissue, and even provide a painless gum lift to help patients with a “gummy” smile. No matter what procedure it is used for, patients can look forward to an efficient and comfortable experience that results in little to no post-treatment soreness.
Our Claris® intraoral camera enables us to turn your appointments into a fun and interactive experience using high-resolution images of your teeth and gums. This small, pen-sized device can be maneuvered comfortably through the mouth, and the pictures it captures can be instantly displayed on a nearby monitor for you and Dr. Voto to see. These will make it much easier for him to spot/diagnose any issues at their earliest stages, and you’ll literally gain a whole new perspective on your oral health.
X-rays are a fantastic diagnostic tool that we use every day in our office, and to make them even faster and safer than before, we’ve upgraded to fully digital. Compared to traditional dental X-rays, digital X-rays can create images in a fraction of the time, they don’t require harsh chemicals to be processed, and they even emit up to 80% LESS radiation. Plus, the images can be easily blown-up and color-coded so you can go over and better understand them with Dr. Voto.
