Cutting-edge Technology at Heritage Creek Dental in Clive, IA and Albia, IA!
Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS invites you to learn all about the various types of technology implemented at Heritage Creek Dental.
DIAGNOdent laser scanner
The DIAGNOdent laser scanner is used at our office so that Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS can detect cavities and decay at their earliest possible stages. With early detection, we only have to remove a small cavity, as opposed to a large cavity detected 6 months after the decay began. When early decay is detected, our Clive dentist can remove and repair the cavity with a small, nearly-invisible bonded filling— much more aesthetically-pleasing and healthier than a large filling! Actually, the DIAGNOdent laser scanner is so powerful that it permits Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS to find previously undetected decay, which can lead to more severe tooth decay and dental problems.
Innovative dental implant systems
At Heritage Creek Dental, we believe in utilizing only the best technology and equipment available on the market. That is why we choose three distinctive innovative dental implant systems manufactured by: Nobel Biocare®, Straumann®, and CAMLOG®. The three dental implant systems manufacturers mentioned here provide Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS with the best equipment and tools to perform the dental implants procedure with precision.
iTeroTM digital impressions
In order for an effective, successful treatment plan to transpire, impressions must be of exceptional quality. That is precisely where the iTero digital impressions technology comes into play. With this advanced technology, Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS can accurately take digital impressions of your teeth in order to properly plan your treatment. With proper treatment planning and acute execution of your treatment(s), you can look forward to a gorgeous, healthy smile.
The Wand by CompuDent allows Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS to control the amount of anesthetic used in dental injections. This computer-controlled injection equipment allows patients to feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire dental procedure since the anesthetics are injected slowly and steadily. Actually, The Wand is perfect for those who have a fear of needles since The Wand looks like a pen instead of a needle! Therefore, patients often feel decreased dental anxiety when The Wand is used during treatments.
The NV Microlaser manufactured by Discus effectively removes infected and inflamed gum tissue that is apparent when a patient develops gum disease or periodontal disease. This innovative soft-tissue laser allows Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS to treat periodontal disease so that patients can have healthy teeth and gums, as well as performing gum recontouring for patients who have “gummy smiles.”
Similarly, the Picasso Lite Laser is used for laser removal of inflamed, infected, or diseased gum tissue often associated with periodontal disease or gum disease. This laser provides similar results as the NV Microlaser, but is just a little more bulky in appearance. Dr. Clinton Timmerman DDS also uses the laser in certain soft-tissue endodontics and soft tissue oral surgery procedures.
