Warrenton, VA Dentist
At Dr. Harre’s office, we utilize state-of-the-art equipment as part of our commitment to providing you with excellent dental care. Some of our advanced technologies include:
The advanced digital X-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This digital X-ray allows us to take an image of your teeth and put it into an imaging program.
With this program, we are able to use a number of tools that will allow us to take a closer look at your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. Digital X-rays can give us the information we need to effectively plan your treatment. Typically, these X-rays are taken before treatment begins, but we may take additional X-rays during and after treatment in order to chart your progress.
Digital X-rays also require much less radiation than traditional film X-rays. Digital X-rays are safe, effective, fast and informative.
In order to provide the most comfortable experience possible, Dr. Harre and our team utilize a new technology known as the “anesthesia wand” in procedures that require numbing. Unlike traditional injections, the wand is a small pen-like device connected to a computer that delivers a small amount of anesthetic to the surface of your skin to start numbing as the needle enters. With the wand, there is no visible needle and the computer guarantees an accurate, consistent anesthetic experience.
The intra-oral camera is a small diagnostic tool, about the size of a pen, that can be used to view the inside of your mouth. Because of its small design, the intra-oral camera is able to gain access to parts of your mouth that can be difficult to see with the naked eye, reflective mirror, or even x-ray. Using this technology, our team is able to inspect a magnified view of your entire mouth on a high definition screen, which can be invaluable for early detection of oral health issues.
It is estimated that there are 640,000 people diagnosed with oral cancer annually. At Dr. Harre’s office, we use the VELscope as an effective way to visualize and discover a wide spectrum of oral trauma and disease. This adjunctive device is used together with, and as a supplement to, the traditional oral head and neck exam. It is conveniently performed in the dental office during a routine hygiene exam and only takes about two minutes.
Dr. Harre and our knowledgeable team will make sure to understand your concerns and answer your questions, as well as take the time to fully diagnose any oral health problems.
