Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays | Jonesboro AR Dentist

We take your comfort and safety very seriously, which is one of the reasons Dr. Bartels has chosen digital x-rays for his patients. Dental x-rays have always been an indispensable tool for diagnosing conditions that develop inside your teeth or under your gums. Digital dental x-rays take the diagnostic process to a whole new level.

Digital x-rays reduce your radiation exposure by about 80 percent compared to film x-rays. The highly detailed images produced with digital x-rays allow our dentist to spot small problems like tooth decay and treat them before they damage your oral health.

We can share the x-ray with you on your chairside monitor so you can see the same details we see. And since the images are digital, there are no hazardous chemicals to dispose of to pollute the environment.

Intraoral Camera

Intraoral camera | Jonesboro AR Dentist

At Bartels Family Dentistry, we use only the best technology for your dental needs. The Daryou Intraoral camera helps us provide the best dental care in the Jonesboro area. The camera allows us to take an up-close look at your teeth and gums while simultaneously viewing on a monitor.

Since we can share the images with you in real-time, you can easily see what the problem is, and therefore better understand the need for treatment. Seeing is believing, and there’s a big difference between being told you have a cavity and seeing the decay displayed on your chairside monitor.

We can also save still images that we add to your patient record and use for future reference, to monitor ongoing conditions, or to send to specialists or insurance companies.

Laser Diagnodent

Laser Diagnodent | Dentist in Jonesboro AR

Using our state-of-the-art DIAGNOdent Cavity Detector, our Jonesboro dentist can find tooth decay in its earliest stages. Diagnosing dental conditions like cavities early on typically results in less invasive treatment to correct and allows us to provide better long-term results.

However, decay frequently begins in the tiny nooks and crannies of your teeth (especially molars) and can be challenging to detect with traditional methods. DIAGNOdent is a small handheld dental laser that Dr. Bartel uses to scan your teeth and gums to look for signs of cavity and gum disease. The equipment lights up the area when it detects decay, making it easier for our dentist to locate. Our laser DIAGNOdent is a dental instrument that uses a precise method for identifying fissure caries, proximal caries, and periodontitis.

Text Confirmations

Text Confirmations | Jonesboro AR Dentist

Life gets busy, and it's easy to let appointments slip by if you're not paying attention. For your convenience, we give you the option of having your appointment reminders sent as a text directly to your phone. You will receive texts to remind you that you have an upcoming appointment, and you have the option to turn these texts off at any time. 

Composite Fillings

Tooth Colored Fillings Jonesboro AR

A composite filling is a tooth-colored restoration that we use to repair a decayed tooth. The material contains resin and glass particles, so it has an appearance that’s very similar to tooth enamel. Since we can customize the shade of the composite to match the color of your tooth, the repair is virtually undetectable.

Patients choose composite fillings because they’re a natural-looking option to traditional fillings, making them a perfect replacement for old silver metal fillings that may crack or leak over time. Because the material looks so realistic, we can also use it for dental bonding to repair a chipped or broken tooth, or even alter the shape, size, and spacing of a tooth.
