Dentist Lusby, MD

As part of our ongoing commitment to using the latest and most effective technologies for your treatments, our office features highly advanced equipment options. Our primary goal is to develop a long-term relationship with you, so that together we can create the personalized treatment plan that will lead to your optimal oral health.

Digital X-Rays

Our advanced digital X-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This digital X-ray allows us to take an image of your teeth and put it into an imaging program.

With this program, we are able to use a number of tools that will allow us to take a closer look at your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy.  Digital X-rays can give us the information we need to more effectively plan your treatment. Typically, these X-rays are taken before treatment begins, but we may take additional X-rays during and after treatment in order to chart your progress.

Digital X-rays also require much less radiation than traditional film X-rays. Digital X-rays are safe, effective, fast and informative.

LANAP

At Tidewater Dental, we utilize a Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) laser that can be used in treating periodontal pocketing and other procedures involving gum tissue.

LANAP allows our doctors to selectively remove diseased gum tissue and reattach healthy tissue to your tooth roots with pinpoint accuracy. LANAP is minimally invasive, promotes healthy tissue regeneration, and has proven results.
