The VELscope® Vx system enhances the way practitioners examine the oral mucosa and screen for tissue abnormalities, potentially leading to the earlier discovery of precancer, cancer or other disease processes. Early detection is one of the best mechanisms for enabling treatment success, increasing survival rates and maintaining a high quality of life.

Invisalign

Invisalign

With more than 1.6 million patients treated, Invisalign® clear braces use a series of clear, nearly invisible removable appliances that gently move teeth to a desired final position.  Invisalign® significantly reduces the esthetic concerns associated with braces, resulting in a 98% satisfaction rate over the past 13 years.  The new SmartForce features in Invisalign® G4 are engineered to help dentists achieve better clinical results.  Invisalign® is not for everyone, some malocclusion cases are best treated with traditional orthodontic methods. Important factors for Invisalign® success include clinical treatment planning and case selection by the dentist and patient motivation and commitment.

LASER

What do you think of when you think “laser”?… light sabers from star wars perhaps…or weapons from Dr. Evil?  Real life lasers are not fun and cool ideas in fiction, they are very powerful, useful and precise tools in many industries. LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, which is a fancy term for concentrated energy from light.  Laser-based manufacturing is taking processing methods to a whole new level in materials, engineering and machining.  Lasers are also used in medicine in surgeries, such as correction of vision.

In the field of dentistry, lasers have many applications and uses.  There are also many types of lasers.  In some cases, lasers can replace the scalpel in procedures to reduce discomfort, enhance healing speed, reduce post-op bacterial infection, and reduce post-op bleeding.  Laser surgery can be gentle enough for some cases in babies! Lasers can also help to kill bacteria in deep pockets of the gums in adults.  In your individual treatment planning, Honey Dental will present ways that laser technology can help enhance your oral health!
