When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Haganman and staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.
Our providers frequently use magnification glasses to ensure quality dental treatment.
Dr. Haganman chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see what we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Dr. Haganman utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. Digital X-rays result in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you and provide valuable diagnostic information.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.
Dr. Haganman utilizes Intraoral Camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An Intraoral Camera is a very small camera, just a few millimeters long. An Intraoral Camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intraoral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
Gum Disease Laser Therapy
Dr. Haganman is proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy: laser treatment. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry:
With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods. In fact, due to the less-invasive nature of the laser technique, the mouth begins to heal immediately after work is completed!
Reduced Risk of Infection:
The laser’s high-energy light beam acts as a sterilizer on the area it is working, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections and relapses.
Anesthesia Limited or Eliminated:
Because laser dentistry is virtually painless, no longer will you suffer with fear of injections and numbness. Laser treatment eliminates the complications and cost associated with anesthesia.
Uses of Dental Lasers:
Dr. Haganman can perform a variety of procedures using laser technology, such as a frenectomy, tooth sensitivity due to root exposure, cold sores and apthous ulcers.
The majority of crowns can be fabricated and cemented in a single visit utilizing CEREC technology. At times, the fabrication and cementing of a crown will take two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a tooth colored temporary crown. On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.
