Dr. Aiello’s office uses the latest dental technology in caring for patients. This includes equipment such as lasers for laser dentistry services and digital x-rays.
Dental Technology for Soft Tissues and Advanced Oral Cancer Screenings
There are a wide variety of lasers used within the field of dentistry. Our office implements several types, depending on the care needs of our patients. One example is the DIAGNOdent laser system, which is a painless, non-invasive laser that detects cavities. Its accuracy allows us to pinpoint tooth decay before it is evident on an x-ray, especially in areas like the deep grooves or pits of the back teeth.
Dr. Aiello was one of the first dentists in the world to be certified by the prestigious Institute for Advanced Laser Technology with his use of the PerioLase dental laser. Since 2005, Dr. Aiello has implemented the PerioLase laser system to perform the LANAP procedure for treating patients with advanced periodontal disease. The PerioLase laser is also used to manage many other conditions – including removal of dark or discolored spots on the lips and gums.
To find out if LANAP treatment could benefit you, call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Aiello.
Digital x-rays allow us to instantly share images of our patients’ teeth with them on a computer screen in the treatment room. This modern technology has many advantages over traditional film x-rays, including:
- Drastically reduced levels of radiation
- Instant imaging capabilities (less time waiting)
- Elimination of harmful processing chemicals
- Better diagnostics
- Improved communication with our patients
Implementing lasers into our practice provides Dr. Aiello’s patients with a minimally-invasive alternative to traditional dental surgeries and procedures. In most cases, we’re able to address problems at a very early stage – reducing your overall cost of care and shortening therapy times. Our patients from the Clinton Township area may see other dentists offering “laser” treatments, but you owe it to yourself to do a bit of research on the type of lasers being utilized. PerioLase is an advanced soft tissue system that only few dentists in our region provide.
With over a decade of experience in soft tissue laser therapy, Dr. Aiello delivers some of the most advanced laser care available to Michigan patients.
