In order to provide more effective and efficient care, Dr. Kenneth Nash uses a wide range of advanced technologies, including the BIOLASE® waterlase laser and digital x-rays. The dental technology at our Vicksburg, MS, practice plays a key role in providing each of our patients with improved oral health, education regarding the state of their teeth and gums, and the best possible comfort during treatment.
We have replaced the discomfort and mess of putty impressions with precise, comfortable digital scans.
Maintaining Your Oral Health
Because the health of teeth and gums contributes to overall health, attending six-month exams and cleanings is extremely important. During these preventive appointments, we use dental technology to provide a more comprehensive exam of the teeth, soft tissues, jaws, head, and neck. If the doctor finds any cause for concern, he can instantly show you images of his findings and provide a thorough explanation.
One of the most effective ways for Dr. Nash to determine the health of your smile is by using digital x-rays. An x-ray image of your teeth will reveal decay, fractures, and other issues. Meanwhile, unlike traditional x-rays, there is no need for wait for film to develop. Instead, the images are produced instantly. X-rays also reveal jawbone deterioration, tooth root positioning, impacted teeth, and abscesses. Because digital x-rays involve such a negligible amount of radiation, this tool is not only more efficient than traditional x-rays, but also safer.
