At Schneider Family Dental, Dr. Matt Schneider makes use of dental technology that wasn’t available when the practice first opened its doors in 1968. In fact, much of it wasn’t available a few years ago. 3-D x-rays give dentists a full view of teeth, allowing them to observe virtually every spot of decay and any frisbees stuck on the roof of the mouth. The office's Cerec machine crafts porcelain crowns custom fitted to patients in one visit, and tooth-colored composite resins keep fillings a secret.
But the team isn’t bogged down with technology so much that they neglect the comfort of their patients. IV sedation relaxes nervous or needle-wary patients while allowing them to continue giving feedback during treatments.
