A talented local dentist employs modern technology to improve smiles in Yuma, AZ. Dr. Sam Carroll and the staff of Yuma Smiles provide premier dental care for their patients. Using state of the art imaging software and equipment, they strive to make sure patients feel well informed and comfortable during the process of evaluating, creating, and implementing a treatment plan for their dental needs.
Yuma Smiles prides itself on being a state-of-the-art dental facility. They employ technology such as CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography). Their 3-D imaging x-ray machine rotates around the patient’s head, collecting nearly 600 accurate, high-quality images. The scanning software will then use these images to show detailed anatomical data specific to each patient. CAD/CAM dentistry – computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing – is used to improve the design and creation of dental restorations such as dental prostheses, including crowns, crown lays, veneers, inlays and onlays, fixed dental prostheses, bridges, dental implant supported restorations, removable or fixed dentures, and orthodontic appliances. CAD/CAM technology allows the delivery of a well-fitting, aesthetic, and durable prostheses for the patient.
Dr. Carroll is a certified provider for the CEREC system of dentistry. CEREC, an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, is a process where teeth are x-rayed, photographed, and captured by a machine. This machine then processes the information to display a full 3D model of the patient’s mouth. CAD software then refines that model to highlight the areas that need restoration. Once completed, the CEREC milling unit will sculpt the designed restoration out of a ceramic block. The ceramic is chosen to provide an almost exact match to natural tooth color. The CEREC machine will then craft the restoration appliance itself within the space of ten to twenty minutes. When placed perfectly, the crown will have no chance of accidental removal.
In a five-star review, Irene P. commented, “Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I’ve been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I’m very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.”
