Dental Technology Working to Make Dental Treatment a Faster, More Comfortable Experience

Scheduling regular visits to the dentist for cleanings and checkups is an essential part of a complete oral hygiene routine. Recent technological advances in dentistry facilitate more accurate diagnoses in less time and increase patient comfort. At the office of Dr. John Carson, D.D.S., we have implemented cutting-edge tools to provide the best possible experience every time you visit our Tucson office. Here are some of the featured products we use for your comfort:

  • DIAGNOdent: This revolutionary laser is a breakthrough in tooth decay treatment that detects potential cavities at the earliest possible stage of their development. This facilitates a more proactive treatment plan to prevent the need for a root canal and to restore the health of your teeth.


  • Cerec: Yesterday’s tooth restoration methods required several office visits, temporary crowns, and messy impressions. The Cerec system has made it possible to craft permanent tooth-colored restorations in just a few moments. The computer-guided system takes a digital map of your teeth and designs a crown that fits perfectly into your bite.


  • Isolite: You can relax and rest in the dentist’s chair with the Isolite lighted mouthpiece. This tool is easily inserted in just a few seconds and provides optimum patient comfort. The dentist can work faster and have greater visibility while you sit back and let your jaw rest comfortably.


  • Digital radiography and intraoral cameras: Images of your mouth can now be seen like never before with advanced oral photography systems of digital imaging. These systems allow you to be more involved with your dental treatment because they clearly show oral defects in high resolution without the downtime of developing film images.

To see this technology in action, schedule a consultation with Dr. John Carson by visiting our practice’s website or calling (520) 514-7203. We offer all Tucson residents complete dental care that is quick, painless, and effective.
