Gladstone Dental Office Helps Patients Get Healthy Smiles with High-Tech Education Tools
June 09, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsJune 9, 2015 - Gladstone, MO – The dental office of Steve R. Carlson, DDS, helps patients learn more about their oral health, and take excellent care of their teeth and gums, with educational dental tools and treatment aids.
The most important part of keeping your smile healthy is taking good care of your teeth at home, and visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups. Steve Carlson, DDS, a local Gladstone dentist, helps educate patients on the best ways to care for their teeth with some important tools. Dr. Carlson and his team use patient education videos, available via the website, and an intra-oral camera to explain the process involved in certain dental procedures, and show patients exactly what's going on with their oral health.
The educational videos are essential in demonstrating, with visuals, just what happens during dental treatments – from a regular dental cleanings, to more advanced procedures, like placing a crown or saving a tooth with a root canal. These videos help alleviate any anxiety a patient may have about treatment by showing them exactly what will take place during their visit.
Intra-oral cameras are another tool that Dr. Carlson and his team use to educate patients about their oral health. With this technology, Dr. Carlson is able to show patients, via a screen located in the treatment rooms, how healthy their smiles are, and which teeth or areas could use more attention at home.
Dr. Carlson states, "We love giving our patients the information they need to feel good about treatment, and achieve excellent oral health. Our educational videos and intra-oral cameras allow us to provide individualized treatment for all patients in our community."
