Our goal at Lanier Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is to provide each patient with the highest level of care in a relaxing and comfortable environment. Our office is outfitted with the latest technology to make your visit more enjoyable.
Our Buford dentist office is designed with amenities to make you feel at home with a warm and inviting presence. We have a refreshment bar with complimentary coffee, water, and soft drinks. We also have satellite radio, HDTV and DVDs in each of our treatment rooms.
We use digital x-rays which are far faster and safer than traditional x-rays. These diagnostic images are extremely important in diagnosing dental problems and getting a clear picture of your overall dental health.
Digital x-rays are the standard in modern dentistry. Using this sophisticated dental technology, we are able to get a clear picture of the teeth, bones, and joints. Digital x-rays are fast and comfortable and deliver 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays.
Digital x-rays are very important in diagnosing a patient’s dental condition. Without this snapshot of the interior workings of the oral system, the dentist is forced to simply guess at what might be causing the problems. Dental x-rays are also extremely useful in looking for hidden problems such as oral cancer, and gum disease. Dr. Brown also uses x-rays for TMJ treatment and diagnosis.
Digital dental x-rays are eco-friendly because they don’t require chemicals to develop the images. And since they are in a convenient digital format, there is no need for bulky storage. The digital images can be kept in the patient’s digital dental records without concern for quality loss over time. The digital format can also be easily shared with other medical professionals when needed.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
In addition, we offer nitrous oxide for patients who have dental anxiety or fear. Laughing gas, as it is better known, has a calming effect, which leaves the patient alert yet relaxed and cooperative during treatment.
Statistics show that 3 out of every 10 American adults avoid the dentist because of fear and anxiety. Dental phobia is no laughing matter. It is a serious condition that prevents people from getting the care they need. Without routine visits to the dentist office, patients can face tooth loss, gum disease, and oral cancer.
We offer nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, to help patients feel relaxed during their procedure. Nitrous oxide is inhaled through a special mask. The patient remains awake and alert throughout treatment. The gas produces a calming affect, allowing the patient to have procedures done without fear or anxiety.
Nitrous oxide is extremely safe and is only effective while the mask is on. Once the mask is removed, the effects of the laughing gas disappear and the patient can continue with their normal routine.
We make dental impressions easy and comfortable using a chairside handheld device. The iTero digital scanner is used for a range of needs, from Invisalign to restorations and avoid the use of those messy impression trays.
We look forward to meeting you and addressing your oral health needs and goals. Our office is conveniently located in Buford, Georgia and we gladly see new patients from surrounding areas including Lawrenceville, Braselton and Flowery Branch.
