One of the most beneficial advances in dentistry is digital radiography. Digital x-rays allow the patient to receive about one-tenth the radiation exposure than that of conventional x-rays. With digital x-rays, it is possible to enlarge and view the teeth and surrounding anatomy. This results in the identification of cavities and pathology at the earliest possible time, allowing smaller fillings and conservation of tooth structure.
The intraoral camera is a device that allows us to examine the dentition and take photographs for patients to see. Visualization is sometimes the best tool. The camera is an extension of the dentist. It allows us to better educate and show the patients what is occurring in their mouths.
At Bristol Dental Group we pride ourselves on using the latest and best technology when it comes to the saftey and sterilization of our instruments. We use OSHA approved chemicals that kill microbes, including HIV and HBV and a digitally controlled autoclave. We spare nothing to give our patients the peace of mind needed to enjoy their experience at Bristol Dental Group.
Coming to the dentist can be difficult, but at Bristol Dental Group we make every effort to make you feel at ease. From the moment you enter, you can see that this is not your typical dental office. We are located in a historic house, and we have made our operatories more like rooms. We chose dental chairs that have memory foam and leather seating for the ultimate in comfort. We also have cable TV presented on flat LCD TV's. Our goal is for you to feel at home. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a different kind of dentistry.
Electric handpieces are now the paradigm in handpiece instrumentation. Our office has accepted this shift in technology by implementing the ELECTROtorque TLC (Torque Limit Control) brushless electric motor system by Kavo. Electric driven handpieces are smoother and quieter and allow more precise margins and defined contours with less effort in less time. Simply, performance and results are amazing.
