Our available technology includes:
DIAGNOdent is an electronic device that helps greatly with detecting decay at the earliest stages possible. Dr. Hanna strongly believes in practicing conservative care. By diagnosing early cases and even areas that might be more prone to decay than others, we can ensure that you teeth experience less damage and that the maximum amount of your natural tooth structure is preserved. Better yet, studies show that DIAGNOdent can even be more accurate than X-rays – no radiation required.
Oral cancer is a very dangerous condition, with tens of thousands of American adults expected to be diagnosed this year. In fact, on average, one person dies from the disease every hour. At Smiles by Hanna, we hope to do what we can to reduce that number with our state-of-the-art VELscope technology. VELscope allows us to detect oral abnormalities and other signs that indicate the presence of oral cancer very early on, greatly increasing your chances of recovery.
In the past, X-ray systems relied on film that had to be developed slowly with hazardous chemicals, not to mention their use of significant radiation. Thankfully, digital X-rays have completely transformed this process and made it simpler than ever. Now, the pictures we capture of your smile are instantly transferred to our computer system, where they can be magnified, rotated, and color-coded for the patient’s benefit, as well as transferred to insurance companies or outside offices. They’re better for the environment too, and the amount of radiation used is reduced by up to 90%!
Here in Gilbert, our dental team is happy to offer you and your family Oxyfresh products! These quality kits and tools are created with safe and natural ingredients that will bolster your oral health and even improve your overall wellbeing. Studies have shown that their routine use can reduce your oral bacteria and plaque, strengthen gum tissue, and even improve the condition of gums that are receding from the teeth.
With our intraoral camera, we can help patients be a much more informed partner in their oral healthcare! The process is simple – our team will insert a small, camera-tipped wand into your mouth and take photographs that are transferred to a big, easily viewable TV screen. Dr. Hanna will be able to point out specific areas that may need more diligent hygiene, clearly identify damage, and explain her recommendations for your treatment in a mutually understanding fashion.
Biolase Waterlase Laser
Waterlase is a truly revolutionary tool when it comes to reducing the pain and discomfort patients experience during certain dental and periodontal procedures. This laser technology relies on light and water to treat infection in a precise and exceptionally comfortable fashion; in fact, most patients don’t even need any anesthesia due to its overall gentleness. This also makes it easier for Dr. Hanna and the rest of our team to perform multiple procedures in a single appointment. Visit our Waterlase page to learn more!
Smiles By Hanna recently invested in a state of the art CT scanner that will allow Dr. Hanna to evaluate even the most complex dental cases. With 3D imaging, our scanner takes images of a patients entire mouth through high-end anatomical 3D imaging innovation, redefining dental imaging in the finest detail from any desired angle. It also takes panoramic imaging needed for dental implant or wisdom tooth cases.
