Preventative Technology Dentists Grand Haven, MI

Our Preventative Technologies

Our Grand Haven preventative dentists use the latest dental technology as part of their commitment to always provide quality dental care. This technology allows us to detect and prevent oral health issues before they become severe. We can identify cavities, find symptoms of oral cancer, and show you any chips or cracks in your teeth. If you have any questions regarding our dental instruments, call our office today.

At Grand Haven Smiles, we’re happy to answer any questions you may have about the technology we use in our office. To schedule your appointment with one of our Grand Haven, MI restorative dentists, give our office a call at (616) 209-4704.

Oral Cancer Screening

Over 50,000 Americans will get oral or throat cancer this year, according to the American Cancer Society. Oral cancer kills thousands of people every year, as it’s often not caught until it’s too late. Fortunately, our Grand Haven dentists provide oral cancer screenings so cancer is detected in its early stages. Detecting oral cancer before it progresses to advanced stages gives you the best chance of survival.

Spectra

Spectra is a noninvasive caries detection aid that helps eliminate the guesswork in detecting and diagnosing tooth decay. It is the only caries detector that uses fluorescence technology to visualize and discover cavities earlier than traditional methods. Our dentists can use Spectra to treat cavities earlier than ever before.

Carestream 12600 Camera

Our dentists use the Carestream 12600 camera because they understand its value toward patient care. This intraoral camera looks much like an oversized pen, but is used to take detailed pictures inside your mouth. While our dentists are able to examine your mouth with a hand mirror, the Carestream 12600 camera lets us display pictures on a screen so you can also see what’s happening inside your mouth.
