High Tech Dentistry

VisiLite® Oral Cancer Detection

Oral cancer is one of the most treatable and curable cancers when caught early. Five year survivorship after treatment is very high when the cancer is discovered in the earliest stages. More than 41,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral or larynx cancer this year. Of those, over 12,000 will die—the equivalent of one death every 45 minutes. This is a number higher than deaths from cervical cancer, melanoma skin cancers, and testicle cancer. The VisiLite® exam lets Dr. Briggs check your mouth for abnormalities. The smallest unusual cell growth is detected, and can result in a treatment protocol to…

Itero®

Those mouth molds are so yesterday. With the Itero® imaging system, Dr. Briggs uses a laser designed to capture 100,000 points of light from the teeth to create an extremely accurate digital image of your teeth and bite. The level of precision is far beyond what is capable with the old gooey mouth mold. What is an iTero Scanner? The iTero Scanner is one of the best technological developments to be introduced to the field of dentistry. This device provides a state of the art reading of a patient’s mouth. By utilizing a series of collective images, the scanner creates…

The Wand® Anesthesia

Forget the fear! Forget that huge, metal syringe — invented in 1920 — and make way for the “magic” Wand®. Dr. Briggs uses this high technology computer controlled anesthesia application so you feel no pain. You probably think it’s that long needle that hurts so much, it’s not – it’s the flow of the anesthetic into your gum tissue. The Wand® is “gee whiz” technology at its best. Depending on the type of tissue, anesthesia is administered in the perfect dose and temperature to do the job. In most cases, instead of multiple injections, you’ll only need one, maybe two…

Stem Cell Collection From Extracted Teeth

This is technology at its newest. Researchers are studying the possibility of diseased gums being repaired with newly grown tissue. Have you ever thought of replacement teeth being grown from your own cells? Within your teeth, even within your child’s baby teeth, there are adult stem cells. Drs. Briggs can collect these stem cells and preserve them for your family’s future. While some of the amazing results—such as growing new teeth—are still five to ten years from reality, these are the same stem cells that may be used to create “personalized medicine” to treat more than just gum disease and…

Lasers

Lasers are so sophisticated these days; they can be used on hard tissue – your teeth – and soft tissue – your gums. Briggs Family and Cosmetic Dentistry use both. The hard tissue laser can be used to prepare teeth for cosmetic dentistry. The soft tissue laser is used to treat gum disease. What’s amazing is that your comfort comes first—these techniques are virtually pain free. Hard Tissue Lasers Hard tissue lasers can be used for many cosmetic and restorative procedures. These lasers are especially useful for removing decayed tooth matter. It has been found that cavities can be treated…

Laser Decay Diagnosis

Realizing that as many as 50% of the potential cavities are missed by the old poke and probe method, Dr. Briggs switched to the completely painless Diagnodent® decay detector. Using technology, the decay diagnosis is made with a special laser designed to not hurt you, your teeth, or your gums. It finds even the smallest decay in your mouth. In the past, x-ray technology and dental probe needles were the only way for dentists to find cavities. Unfortunately, both methods required the decayed area to be fairly large to be noticed by x-rays, and to be confirmed with the diagnosis…
