Your Charlotte dentist at Central Avenue Dental is proud to be on the cutting edge of dentistry. We invest in only the most current techniques and treatments, and the most advanced technology on the market, because better technology means better dentistry:
Digital x-rays are one of our favorite pieces of technology in our office. Digital x-ray technology has revolutionized the way we do dentistry. No more switching rooms, heavy vests, and having to hold still for what seems like an eternity. Digital x-rays are safer with less radiation, more accurate, and more convenient than traditional x-rays. Digital x-rays can be taken right from the dental chair, and viewed within moments on the screen to give us a comprehensive understanding of your oral health.
We’re thrilled to have this new oral cancer screening device technology at Central Avenue Dental! Bio/Screen® Oral Exam Light uses 5 powerful LED lights that use biofluorescence to illuminate tissue abnormalities and detect oral cancer in the early stages for the best chance at survival and recovery. Bio/Screen® has a special optical filter to improve contrast between healthy and abnormal tissue to improve visualization, and does not require a special rinse or even turning the lights off. If you smoke or chew tobacco, drink alcohol, or have been diagnosed with HPV, you are at a much higher risk for oral cancer and you should be sure to get screened regularly – it might just save your life.
