Advanced Dental Technology for Enhanced Care and Precision

Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:

Digital X-rays

Our advanced digital X-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.

With digital X-rays, we can view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your dental treatment.

Digital X-rays require much less radiation than traditional film X-rays. Digital X-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.

Panoramic X-rays

A panoramic X-ray machine rotates around your entire head to take a 360-degree view of your teeth, sinuses, and the bone structure of your head and jaws. This provides a more complete image than standard X-rays. Panoramic x-ray imagery is a valuable resource for Dr. Christina McKellar to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is a mild dental sedation medication. Once inhaled, it induces a state of mild relaxation. It also reduces pain sensitivity. Nitrous Oxide is safe for virtually every patient, regardless of age. Following treatment, oxygen is used to neutralize the effects of the nitrous oxide. Once this is complete, you will be fully alert and able to drive yourself home.

Televisions

Our TV here at Homegrown Pediatric Dentistry offers entertainment, helping your child relax during procedures. It distracts from dental anxieties, creating a more comfortable atmosphere. Additionally, it can provide educational content on oral health, promoting awareness and relaxation simultaneously.
