Family Dentist in Columbia, MD

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-Ray

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. Chambarlis to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.

Soft Tissue Lasers

With soft tissue lasers at our disposal, Dr. Chambarlis can provide precise high-quality treatments that are relatively pain-free, less invasive, and useful for a wide variety of dental treatments.

A laser is essentially a tiny beam of highly concentrated light. This beam can be used to provide pinpoint accuracy in treatments. Because the laser sterilizes the tissues and seals off blood vessels as it is used, the chance of infection or bleeding following laser treatment is minimal. The soft tissue laser is minimally-invasive, but highly effective.

With the highly versatile soft tissue laser, Dr. Chambarlis can seal nerve endings and blood vessels and treat soft tissues simultaneously. This creates less stress on the gums, which significantly reduces both swelling and bleeding. Moreover, by using the soft tissue laser, Dr. Chambarlis minimizes patients’ discomfort both during and after the treatment and lessen their recovery time.

Dr. Chambarlis uses soft tissue laser technology to provide our patients with precise dental care with a comfortable dental experience.

Hard Tissue Lasers

Our office is equipped with hard tissue laser technology. This tool allows us to ablate and move hard tissue matter in half the time when compared to previous devices. This minimally invasive system allows for faster healing.

We can utilize the hard tissue laser to treat both tooth and gums. In most instances, an anesthetic is not necessary when using the hard tissue laser. Our team will decide the best course of treatment for you during your visit.

Our team is specially trained to use this equipment, and our patients enjoy the speed and ease with which we can provide treatments utilizing this technology.

Waterlase

Waterlase is a cutting-edge dental laser that is used to successfully treat many common dental conditions in a minimally invasive way. It combines air, water and laser energy to remove molecules while keeping your teeth hydrated. Waterlase is virtually painless, safe, precise and reduces the risk of cross contamination.
