Dr. Keith Polizois utilizes the latest technologies in dentistry and is always seeking out new ways to take your dental care to the next level.
When he discovers something that optimizes outcomes, improves diagnostics, and provides a more relaxing or less time-consuming dental experience for you, he brings that technology to Chesapeake Bay Dentistry.
We invite you to read more about some of the leading-edge technologies that contribute daily to patient outcomes and experiences in our Annapolis, MD dental office.
You have probably never really seen the inside of your mouth up close. With intraoral cameras, now you can!
At Chesapeake Bay Dentistry, we use intraoral cameras to show you exactly what Dr. Keith Polizois sees when he examines your teeth. These images help our top Annapolis, MD dentist point out areas of concern such as receding gums or chips in teeth that you may not have noticed. Intraoral cameras also help you understand why a specific treatment plan has been recommended.
Intraoral cameras are about the size of a large ink pen or small toothbrush, but they provide enhanced and up close images that can be pulled up on the treatment room monitor for you to see.
Nitrous oxide, sometimes called laughing gas, is a safe and effective calming gas designed to help you relax during dental treatments and procedures. It is administered through a small mask, and the calming sensation wears off quickly following mask removal.
Nitrous oxide dental sedation in Annapolis, MD is a patient favorite!
Root canal therapy with rotary endodontics allows for a faster and easier root canal.
Rotary endodontics relies on accurate and flexible rotary instruments to complete your root canal comfortably. This modern approach to root canal therapy is superior to the traditional manual filing approach, and patients who once feared root canals generally change their outlook following rotary endodontics in Annapolis, MD!
Panoramic x-rays capture two-dimensional images of your entire mouth, including structures below the surface such as your bone levels, and joints.
These x-rays provide our dentist with a landscape view of your jaw—as opposed to the natural U shape—and the inner-workings of your oral structure. These enhanced and flat images help our dentist to better spot bone problems, misalignments, wisdom teeth, and dental issues that are difficult to diagnose relying on a surface view alone.
Sometimes patients avoid x-rays for fear of radiation. At Chesapeake Bay Dentistry, we use digital x-rays for your peace of mind. Our digital x-rays mean an up to 90 percent reduction in radiation compared with traditional x-rays.
In addition to emitting far less radiation, our x-rays are better for the environment because there are no messy development chemicals.
Our digital x-rays provide high-definition images safely, and these images can be enhanced so that Dr. Polizois can spot potential dental issues before they threaten your oral health.
3-D Cone Beam Imaging
For optimal outcomes in restorative dentistry—dental implants, for example—the placement of the implant is vital to its success.
Our skilled Annapolis, MD dentist uses 3-D cone beam technology to locate superior bone for implant placement and to deliver excellence to patients every day. This technology helps Dr. Keith Polizois provide predictable and desired outcomes in restorative and surgical dentistry.
