Dental Patient Comfort With Advanced Technology
Modern Technology Dental Care Services
At our Naples dental offices, your comfort and safety are important to us. Dr. Makram uses the best of modern technology for a positive, successful dental care experience. Here's a sample of what you'll find at our practices:
- Digital X-rays: Digital X-rays emit 90% less radiation than traditional radiography. The images are immediately available for viewing on chairside monitors and are a great educational tool to help patients partner in treatment planning. In addition, we can electronically transmit the pictures to specialists and insurance companies and easily store them for future reference.
- Air Abrasion: Dr. Makram uses comfortable air abrasion instead of a dental drill to remove small amounts of decay and prepare teeth for restoration. Air abrasion sprays a stream of compressed air and tiny abrasive particles to gently clean tooth surfaces of unwanted material. And most patients don't require numbing, which means no shot!
- Intraoral Cameras: During your checkup, we'll use a tiny, hand-held camera to take pictures inside your mouth, then transmit the images to a chairside monitor. Dr. Makram will explain his findings and partner with you to determine treatment.
- State-of-the-Art Sterilization: Our entire staff adheres to stringent sterilization techniques. We sterilize reusable instruments after each use, disinfect treatment rooms between patients, and use disposable products when possible. Each member of our team wears disposable gloves during exams and treatments.
- First-Class Amenities: Our treatment rooms feature TVs and headphones so you can enjoy your favorite television program, watch a video, or listen to your choice of music on our XM satellite radio system.
