When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Marley, and his staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care. Our practice uses magnification to enhance the precision of patient care.
Dentistry is micro-surgery
Using surgical telescopes enables our dentists at Homer Dental Clinic to create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just can't fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.
In addition to allowing precise, close-up work, the microscope directs a beam of light directly on the teeth, minimizing glare for you.
Dr. Marley chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see things we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure from dental radiographs is extremely minimal. At Homer Dental Clinic, our clinical staff uses Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, the exposure time is about 60 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
3D CAT Scan Technology
The Homer Dental Clinic offers 3D CAT Scan imaging right in our office! There's no need to travel far or have a separate appointment.
Dental CAT scan imaging provides the highest level of accuracy and detail so that you may expect the same with your dental treatment.
Dental CAT scan imaging has much lower X-Ray exposure than hospital CAT scans and at a fraction of the cost! The Homer Dental Clinic also makes their imaging available for other doctors and their patients.
Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.
Dr. Marley offers intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera - in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums. It's the best way for you to see what we see!
Intraoral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
Advanced Grafting Techniques
Grafting has never been more predictable than it is now. We use Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in addition to a host of state-of-the-art materials. Should your treatment require grafting to replace lost jaw bone we will use your own platelets and concentrate them to enhance your body's ability to grow new bone and minimize post-operative discomfort.
