Invisalign® Clear Braces
Many adults dream of straight teeth, but the aesthetic sacrifice and extreme time commitment of traditional braces is just too big of a hurdle for them. If this is the case for you, talk to our doctors and staff about Invisalign treatment. Instead of noticeable brackets and wires, Invisalign consists of clear, plastic aligners, each one designed to represent a different stage of your smile’s transformation. They’re very subtle when worn offering a natural appearance, and their removable nature means you can still enjoy your favorite foods. In just 12-18 months, you could be enjoying the improvements.
Fear of the dentist is a common thing, which is why our Cary, NC staff works so hard to help patients feel comfortable and at home throughout their visits. However, we understand that sometimes, a little extra help is needed, and that’s where sedation dentistry comes in. Our team will provide you with a prescription for a sedative that you’ll take one hour prior to your appointment. Once the effects take hold, patients remain conscious, but they’ll feel much more relaxed overall allowing us to provide necessary care. Patients undergoing oral sedation need a trusted friend or family member to escort them both to and from our office for safety reasons.
Digital Dental X-Rays
Digital X-rays are vastly superior to the traditional film process allowing our team to generate incredibly detailed and crystal-clear images of your smile. Instead of having to rely on a darkroom, these X-rays are instantly captured and transferred to our computer system in a matter of seconds, and radiation is reduced by 80-90% for a safer process overall. We can rotate and magnify the images on a large TV display so patients better understand what they’re seeing, and transferring them to insurance companies or other doctors is simpler than ever. We rely on both intraoral sensors and a state-of-the-art panoramic system for the most comprehensive results imaginable.
Soft Tissue Laser Treatment
Our advanced diode laser is able to take the place of the traditional scalpel in many procedures, such as biopsies, gum disease treatment, cosmetic gum recontouring, ulcer treatment, and more. Dr. Koch and his team members perform this care with extreme precision preserving healthy tissue where possible and promoting post-operative comfort . In fact, bleeding is minimized to the point that many patients don’t even require sutures.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a health condition that occurs when a patient’s airway becomes partially or fully blocked when they’re unconscious. This causes constant pauses in their breathing throughout the night, which lead to daytime exhaustion, severe headaches, higher blood pressure, increased risks of car accidents, and many other unpleasant consequences.
Many people don’t realize they can turn to their local dentist for help with sleep apnea, but it’s true! If you’ve been diagnosed, talk to Dr. Koch or one of his team members about the possibility of receiving a custom snoreguard. This oral appliance is designed to slightly adjust the patient’s tongue and/or jaw, keeping the airway unblocked and allowing for deep, uninterrupted rest.
