Intraoral camera and LANAP®
At Kennedy Dental, we believe giving you the best possible care involves keeping up with new technology and advancements in the dental industry. We pride ourselves on continuing to expand our knowledge and experience in the field and are continually looking for new opportunities to make our practice better for you.
One of the technologies we have adopted is the intraoral camera. This tiny, hand-held device is used during your exams and screenings. This small camera projects images of your mouth in real time to a monitor. It allows us to look at your tooth and gums from all angles and fits comfortably in your mouth. The intraoral camera allows you to see what we see when we examine your teeth.
Another technology that we use in our practice is LANAP®. LANAP® is a laser periodontal treatment that treats gum disease and encourages your gums to essentially heal themselves. In the past, periodontal surgery involved sharp scalpels and sutures. This laser procedure targets problematic gum tissue and is overall less painful and invasive than other surgical options. Drs. Larry and Gary Kennedy are pleased to provide this comprehensive technology to benefit you, and often to patients from nearby practices that do not have this procedure. This is a genuinely exceptional treatment for what was at one time an uncomfortable dental experience.
