Digital X-Ray

Our digital x-ray system sends x-ray images to a digital imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are tools that allow the dentist to view the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As an additional benefit to the patient, digital x-rays also generate 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray.

PAIN-FREE DENTISTRY

Dental procedures are often uncomfortable, but you should never experience excessive pain during any procedure. Dr. Goldberg offers a wide array of products and techniques to alleviate pain. Anytime a patient indicates that they are experiencing pain or anxiety, Dr. Goldberg uses the appropriate methods to reduce or eliminate it. First, he uses topical anesthetics to numb the area where injections will take place. Then, local anesthetics such as lidocaine or other similar products are injected to deaden nerves in the area where a procedure will take place. If necessary or desired by the patient, nitrous oxide, and/or oral sedation such as Valium or Ativan can be administered. Finally, if a patient desires full general anesthesia, Dr. Goldberg consults with an anesthetist, who administers the anesthesia and monitors the patient throughout the procedure. Distracting music and television are available to patients in all of our comfortable treatment rooms.

ELECTRIC HANDPIECES

Electric Hand-Piece - Dental Exams in San Diego, CA
There are two types of dental hand-pieces – air-driven and electric. Electric hand-pieces are much stronger, more accurate, and more controllable than air-driven tools, since electric motors drive the tools directly, rather than air driving them indirectly. The doctor can therefore remove decay at a faster pace, reducing the time it takes to complete a procedure.
