The field of dentistry is constantly evolving, and at Exceptional Dentistry, we take pride in keeping up with the latest tools and techniques for the sake of our patients. Plus, Dr. Carroll, Dr. Shoemaker, and the rest of our dedicated staff regularly undergo training so that we wield these new technologies with confidence. Our goal is to leave you happier and healthier after each and every appointment here in Shepherdsville!
Your oral health is complex, and lots of important information about it is well-hidden underneath the surface of teeth and gums. That’s why X-rays are such an important part of dentistry. Our team has chosen to invest in digital radiography for faster image capture (no darkrooms required), no hazardous chemicals, and up to 90% less radiation exposure for our patients. Your safety is always of the utmost importance to us!
Intraoral cameras are an excellent tool for capturing high-resolution pictures of a patient’s mouth. We use a small wand that has a tiny camera at its tip, and the images we take are instantly viewable on a monitor in the room by patient and doctor alike. At last, you can see your own teeth and gums, and our team will be capable of explaining problems and treatment options more clearly to boot. It’s our goal to help you feel as calm and confident as possible when it comes to improving your oral health over time.
Our advanced soft tissue laser makes the treatment of gum disease and oral infections easier than ever before. Plaque and harmful bacteria are no match for the intense beam of light it projects, and it’s so precise that the nearby healthy tissue won’t even be harmed. Better yet, the procedure is very comfortable with a sped-up recovery process to boot. It even provides instant sterilization, which means you won’t need stitches and any bleeding is very minimal.
Cavities are one of the most common oral health problems patients face, and being able to identify them early on can make a big difference in the success of treatment. Here in Shepherdsville, our team uses a digital cavity detection system in order to discover weakened areas of decay at their smallest stages – in fact, we can often correct the problem BEFORE a true cavity even forms, saving you valuable time and cost.
