Dental Technology and Sedation Dentistry Options
Your comfort and safety are our foremost concerns. Cerritos Southcoast Dental has invested in state-of-the-art technology and deluxe amenities to create a modern, inviting atmosphere. As our patient, you'll experience all the comfort and accuracy that contemporary dental care provides.
During your checkup or new patient exam, we may use a small, handheld camera to take pictures inside your mouth and then we'll display the images on your chairside monitor. Dr. Carlos Compean and Dr. Mary Compean will refer to the pictures to explain findings and collaborate with you on treatment planning.
All of our comfortable treatment chairs are equipped with computer monitors so that you can view intraoral photos, dental digital X-rays, and educational materials.
Digital Dental X-rays:
Digital radiography exposes patients to 80% less radiation than traditional X-rays. The images can be immediately viewed on chairside monitors, electronically transmitted to insurance companies and specialists, and digitally stored for easy retrieval. Dental digital X-rays require no harsh chemicals, so they're safe for the environment.
iTero Digital Impression System
We use an iTero scanner to create an accurate map of your mouth, which is uploaded digitally to our computer. We use this to create accurately fitting dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures, without dealing with the hassle of physical impressions. This convenient technology allows us to expedite your treatment!
Millions of Americans experience dental phobia. Dr. Carlos Compean and Dr. Mary Compean may use nitrous oxide (also referred to as laughing gas) to enhance sedation or by itself to promote relaxation and banish dental phobia.
