Waters Family Dentistry

Technology

The staff at Waters Family Dentistry stays up to date with the rapidly changing dental technology. They learn about new technology and advancements when they attend continuing education, review dental journals, and attend dental trade shows.

We are pleased to offer you the following services and technology in our Grand Island office.

Digital X-Rays

This technology allows the dental assistant or the dental hygienist to capture an image of your tooth using a digital sensor. This diagnostic tool is invaluable for detecting dental disease and infection.

There numerous benefits of digital x-rays over film x-rays:

  • Significantly less radiation
  • More comfortable sensor than traditional film packets
  • No waiting for film x-rays to be developed
  • Many imaging options when examining teeth and supporting bone
  • Better for the environment; no chemicals needed for processing and no film packet waste
  • Easily shared with other dentists or specialists when referrals are needed
  • Easy to view the image on the chairside dental monitor

CAESY Patient Education Software

Waters Family Dentistry offers a unique way to educate our patients about their oral health. The CAESY dental education software gives concise explanations for common dental conditions and treatment options. Videos are available in both English and Spanish.

Intraoral Camera

We are able to capture and save photos of your teeth and mouth with an intraoral camera. A wonderful benefit of the camera is Dr. Waters and the hygienist can easily show you what they are observing on a chairside monitor. This allows you to be more informed about your own dental health.

Spectra Caries Detection Aid

This non-invasive instrument uses fluorescence technology to project high-energy light onto the tooth surface causing cavity-producing bacteria to appear red and healthy enamel green. It resembles a weather radar that tracks severe storms.

Dental Waterline Treatment

We have invested in a waterline system that provides our patients with the highest quality of water used during their procedure. Our office uses only distilled water in our treatment rooms. In addition, the Sterisil straw system is installed in each treatment room to continuously disinfect the distilled water used during dental appointments.
