Middletown Indiana dentist offers hygiene and maintenance care solutions
Dr. Kevin J. Welch of Muncie Dental Care and Denture Center proudly assists patients in the Middletown, Indiana area with a variety of procedures. This includes general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. He also wants to educate patients on the best ways to maintain their smile and achieve oral health by offering advanced hygiene solutions and practices.
There are many ways in which Dr. Kevin J. Welch helps his patients receive comprehensive care in his state-of-the-art practice with modern technology. They include:
Using the Diagnodent laser device, Dr. Kevin J. Welch can easily detect, measure, and diagnose areas of decay. This laser can find cavities within teeth that are otherwise unnoticeable to the naked eye during a physical evaluation.
It can be difficult to explain to patients what is going on with their oral health without a visual aid. Our team offers intra-oral cameras which can help in providing a proper diagnosis of a condition and allowing the patient to see what is happening. This digital imaging also gives the dentist the ability to take snapshots of the smile and compare them later to physically see the improvements over time.
Patients can enjoy educational videos at the dental office which explain dental conditions and the procedures needed to improve them.
Treatment of decay starts with removal. Instead of using shots and drills, our practice offers special air abrasion techniques. This is when air and powder are sprayed into a tooth to remove tooth decay.
Waterlase Dental Laser
Another method of preparing the tooth for fillings without shots and drills is with the Waterlase dental laser. This particular method uses water that is energized by a special laser light to remove decay from the tooth and get it ready for the placement of fillings.
Using today’s technology is the best way to provide patients with optimum dental health care solutions. Contact Dr. Kevin J.
