Sedation dentistry in Lombard, IL.

Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below

Digital X-Rays

Our advanced digital x-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.

With digital x-rays, we can view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your dental treatment.

Digital x-rays require much less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.

Panoramic X-Ray

A Panoramic x-ray machine rotates around your entire head to take a 360-degree view of your teeth, sinuses, and the bone structure of your head and jaws. This provides a more complete image than standard x-rays. Panoramic x-ray imagery is a valuable resource for Dr. David Sanders and Dr. Leslie Sanders to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.

Intra-oral Camera

The intra-oral camera is about the size and shape of a pen. It is used to record images of your teeth, gums, mouth, and tongue from inside your mouth. Due to its small size and sleek design, it is comfortable, easy to use, and able to view a wide range of angles. The intra-oral camera is a safe and effective tool that can be used with patients of every age.

The intra-oral camera is a highly valuable resource for both diagnosis and treatment planning. Each time we use the intra-oral camera, a new disposable cover is employed. This ensures your health and safety at all times. After your exam, images captured by the intra-oral camera may be digitally stored, printed out, or deleted.

Cavitron

The Cavitron is a handheld device used in periodontal deep cleaning. While scaling can be completed by hand, the Cavitron uses ultrasonic technology to remove calculus from teeth and gums quickly, gently and effectively.

With the Cavitron, patients enjoy a more comfortable experience and time spent scaling and polishing is decreased.

Dexis CariVuTM

Dexis CariVuTM is a new, compact, portable decay detection device that uses a patented transillumination technology. This technology uses light to produce an image like that of an x-ray, but without the x-ray exposure. CariVuTM is safe for patients of any age and can be particularly helpful for patients with small mouths or strong gag reflex.

With the CariVuTM, we can safely and effectively detect cracks and tooth decay as we view the scan on a high-definition monitor. Also, with the CariVuTM technology, we can reduce the need for X-ray exposure by roughly 50% over time.

Rotary Endodontics Handpiece

A rotary endodontics handpiece is a tool designed to be used in root canal therapy . By using this handpiece, we can complete the treatment gently and efficiently. This allows you to have a quicker and more comfortable treatment experience.

DIAGNOdent

The DIAGNOdent is an advanced dental tool that uses a laser to aid in detecting tooth decay. With the DIAGNOdent, we can locate incipient cavities with pinpoint accuracy. This is especially useful in areas that can be difficult to diagnose through visual inspection or x-ray alone. The DIAGNOdent is simple, painless, and effective. With early detection, we can stop decay below the surface with minimally invasive treatment.

Nomad™ X-Ray Gun

The Nomad™ handheld x-ray system is battery-powered for completely cordless portability. With the Nomad™ gun, we can take accurate, efficient scans with less radiation exposure than most conventional systems. The Nomad™ is comfortable, convenient, and can be used in any treatment room.

DentalVibe

About 1 in 5 Americans avoids going to the dentist due to dental anxiety or fear. For many of these patients, the biggest reason for their fear is pain from injections. With the DentalVibe, needle fears can become a thing of the past.

The DentalVibe Injection Comfort System is a small hand-held tool used to administer anesthesia. Unlike a standard needle injection, however, the DentalVibe applies light vibration to the area around the injection site as the anesthesia is being administered. Due to the way the brain interprets sensory information, the vibration sensation arrives first and blocks the sense of pain or injection discomfort.

DentalVibe is safe to use with patients of all ages and all states of health. Among patients who have experienced the DentalVibe, 95% have reported that their entire view of dentistry has changed. Many have gone on to say that they believe they might never have experienced dental fear at all had this revolutionary new tool been available during their childhood.

If you’ve delayed your oral care due to issues with dental anxiety or fear of pain from anesthesia needles, DentalVibe is here for you. Contact our office for an appointment to get your health back on track.

I have been coming to Sanders Family Dental for over 12 years. I have always been fearful of the dentist since I was a child and I have had a wonderful experience here with Dr. Leslie! I started out with her father, Dr.Martin. My experience has been very comfortable for they offer sedation and Nitrous Oxide to help me feel at ease. I have had extractions, root canals, fillings and I am very pleased with Dr Leslie and her work. If you are fearful, the entire team helps put me at ease and feel relaxed. Definitely a great place to be for any dental procedures! The office is always clean, neat and up to date with all of the latest equipment.

I had a wonderful experience at Sanders Family Dental. To start I would say they are very professional and patient. So I hadn’t been to the dentist in about 15 yrs, and they made me feel so good and comfortable when coming in. The treatment was flawless to me because there weren’t any problems or issues before or after treatment and they follow up well. Just to say I will be recommending them to friends and family and of course I’m making them my personal dentist office. 👍🏾
