Our Technology in West Palm Beach, FL
Locations in Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Over the years, a good number of people in Jupiter, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and other nearby areas in Florida, have avoided dental treatment because procedures were too invasive or complicated. Advances in technology now make the oral procedures performed here at South Florida Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery safer and more comfortable than ever before.
Laser surgery is increasingly being used by oral surgeons to perform biopsies or remove mouth lesions, as doing so reduces or eliminates the need for cutting and speeds the recovery process. Lasers also operate very quietly and therefore decrease anxiousness among those who suffer from dental anxiety or phobia.
Type of Laser
Soft tissue lasers, a type primarily used for working on the gums and soft tissues of the mouth, lips, and cheek. The Luxar Laser is an example of a soft tissue laser that is often used to move lesions on the tongue and lips.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Scan
For our patients who require imaging, we are proud to offer the Planmeca ProMax® 3D (cone beam) imaging unit. This advanced piece of equipment provides more detailed information, allowing us to better diagnose your condition and come up with a more precise treatment plan. While standing still, a CBCT scanner device will slowly rotate around your head, collecting up to 600 well-defined images. This type of scan is especially useful when determining where and how to place dental implants by illustrating the oral cavity in three dimensions.
How much Does Our Technology Cost in Jupiter?
Our benefits coordinator will serve as a liaison between you and your insurance company to determine what if any benefits are available, as well as what your copay and deductible amounts are. Once we have determined your out-of-pocket costs, we will then discuss our many payment options, which include cash, personal check, and major credit cards.
Many of our patients are also able to afford treatment by applying for CareCredit® financing. CareCredit® is in itself a credit card that can be used at leading healthcare providers such as dentists, optometrists, and general practitioners. This makes it a great option if you are considering treatment from more than one provider. Even those with less-than-perfect credit scores are often approved for CareCredit® and are able to obtain payment plans they can easily fit into their monthly budget.
