Why do I need this procedure?
One of our goals at Buxton Family Dental is to help you better understand your oral health needs. We know from experience that educated patients tend to be more proactive with their dental care and suffer from fewer problems as a result.
An essential part of the process is getting to know you so we can understand your needs and tailor your treatment accordingly. Then we can work together to develop a long-range plan to keep your smile healthy.
Another way we help you understand your dental needs is by using technology like intraoral cameras that let you see what we see when we look in your mouth. The camera is about the size of a pen, and Dr. Buxton directs it over your teeth during your exam.
The image captured is displayed simultaneously on your chairside monitor, so you can see in real time what the problem is and why we need to treat it. We also use comfortable digital sensors instead of x-ray film to produce images of your teeth that we can share with you and point out problems.
At Buxton Family Dental, you can be confident that we will never recommend a procedure you don’t need or want. By working as a team, we can provide you with the personalized care you need for a smile you’re proud to show off.
