At Anthony Bartels, DDS, we are dedicated to delivering high-quality dentistry to patients of all ages. To help us achieve this objective, we use the latest technologies and make advanced procedures—cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign, TMJ treatment, sleep appliance therapy—available to our patients.

Leading technologies allow your Jonesboro, AR dentist to provide predictable results, comfortable dentistry, and superior diagnostics to patients everywhere, including our neighbors in Paragould, Walnut Ridge, Brookland, and Bay, AR.

If you would like to schedule an examination or learn more about our dental technologies, give us a call today. Additionally, you can read through the prompts below to learn more about our innovative equipment—including our new 3-D x-ray and intraoral scanner—and our modern approach to dental care.

Quality dentistry and comfort care inform everything we do! 

 

VA TECH 3-D Green CT2 Advanced Digital X-Ray in Jonesboro, AR

Our new VA Tech digital x-ray provides enhanced and resizable images for the dentist. With this technology, we achieve more precise imaging for superior diagnostics and treatment planning.

The VA TECH gives us a three-dimensional picture of your oral structure. With this type of imagery, your dentist can diagnose and treat oral health conditions with greater precision.

This technology may aid in the diagnosis of:

  • Oral pain causes
  • Jaw joint dysfunction
  • Deep oral infections
  • Hidden or emerging decay
  • Airway obstruction causes

The images can also help your dentist plan treatments, including but not limited to:

  • Dental implant placement
  • Jaw joint treatment
  • Tooth extractions

Digital x-rays are also safer than traditional x-rays because they emit less radiation. Additionally, they are better for the planet because there are no products or chemicals to dispose of. Rather than feed a landfill, we store your digital x-rays electronically for easy access, to share with specialists, and for later comparisons.

Intraoral Scanner for Comfortable Dentistry Near Me

Our intraoral scanner provides patients with a more comfortable impression experience. Instead of goopy pastes to take impressions for your restorations, including dental crowns, the intraoral scanner works digitally!

This technology relies on a light source to precisely capture the appropriate image. This means a more accurate result, allowing for better fitting crowns and restorations. With this technology, we can better predict the final outcome while giving you a comfortable impression experience.

Other Innovative Dental Technologies

Our Jonesboro dentist has experience in many aspects of dentistry, including:

  • Dentistry for children
  • General dentistry
  • Preventive dentistry
  • Dental implant technology
  • Dental implant retained dentures
  • Cosmetic dentistry, including veneers
  • Tooth extractions
  • Invisalign clear aligners
  • Crowns and cosmetic restorations
  • Periodontal treatment
  • TMJ treatment
  • Treatments for snoring
  • Appliance therapy
  • More!

Technology coupled with the skill of our dentist makes your treatment predictable and comfortable.

We also enjoy technologies that educate our patients and help them make excellent and informed choices for their dental care.

Below are just some of the innovations we offer in our dental office.

Biolase Diode Laser

Laser dentistry means less invasive procedures and dental surgeries for you. The laser also promotes faster healing times following your treatment, and it is far more comfortable and precise than the scalpel.

Composite Fillings

Rather than silver amalgam, we rely on tooth-colored fillings in Jonesboro, AR. This composite material means treating your cavities without drawing attention to your dental work. In addition, these fillings, like our other cosmetic restorations, blend with your tooth’s natural color for a nearly undetectable finish.

If you already have silver fillings, talk to our dentist about changing them to our more attractive white variety.

Early Cavity Detection

With our DIAGNOdent Cavity Detector, we can spot emerging cavities before they require extensive treatment or threaten the integrity of your tooth. This technology even finds periodontitis that is not immediately obvious during your exam.

Intraoral Camera

Do you ever wonder what your dentist sees when examining your teeth and gums? With our intraoral camera, we can capture these images and present them to you via a chairside monitor. These colored images allow you to make the right decisions for your dental treatment and help you better understand your dentist’s diagnosis and recommendations.

We can also share these images with specialists and your insurance company when necessary.

At Anthony Bartels, DDS, we want patients to understand their dental care and make good choices for their long-term oral health.

Pain-Free Dentistry

Our commitment to patient comfort would not be complete without sedation dentistry in Jonesboro.

Of course, we always numb the treatment site. But for those who need extra reassurance, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation in pill form. Your dentist can even combine these options to provide maximum relaxation.

Nitrous oxide is a harmless gas breathed in through a nose mask. It is safe for patients of all ages, including your child! When we finish treatment and remove the mask, there are no lingering effects. You’ll be free to continue your day.

Oral sedation is a pill given before treatment. It may leave you with little memory of your dental procedure, but it is ideal if you feel anxious or have multiple treatments during a single visit. With oral sedation, you will need a friend or loved one to drive you.

Appliance Therapy

We provide snoring or sleep apnea treatment in our dental office through appliance therapy. If the CPAP machine is not working for you—it may be too cumbrous—your dentist can evaluate you for a custom sleep appliance.

The sleep appliance fits over the teeth and keeps the airway open throughout the night. You can combine treatments with CPAP or rely on your appliance when traveling because it is much smaller than the machine.

We also create custom nightguards for joint dysfunction therapy and bruxism (clenching and grinding teeth). This custom appliance can relieve your symptoms, correct your joint dysfunction, and prevent grinding and clenching. This saves your teeth from wear and fractures and may also improve life quality.
