Dental Technology in Bainbridge
Providing the Most Effective Dental Solutions in Chenango, Delaware, Otsego & Broome Counties
When we were kids (and let us face it, as adults as well), perhaps the most terrifying part of visiting the dentist was sitting in the big chair and staring at the array of dental tools on the tray. As we waited, shiny, metal items resembling nails, screwdrivers, hammers, needles, and pliers all began to play on our imagination until they resembled cruel torture instruments from the Middle Ages or the Spanish Inquisition.
Of course, in Medieval Times, without contemporary anesthesia or modern equipment, such tools often did feel like instruments of torture. Today, however, dental technology in Bainbridge has allowed our practice to have the highest advances of equipment that will make every one of your dental operations absolutely safe. Not only that, but Michelle A. Gifford DDS, PLLC uses high-tech equipment that reduces any pain or discomfort you might feel in addition to decreasing the amount of time it takes to get your operation in the first place.

Advanced Technological Equipment
There is a famous quote that says, “An artist is only as good as their tools.” This quote absolutely holds true for dentists as well. While a dentist may be highly skilled and extremely compassionate, he or she cannot provide a successful operation without the right tools. Fortunately, at our office, Dr. Michelle A. Gifford not only possesses superb experience and empathy, but she also utilizes the most advanced technology to deliver the best service to her patients.
Some of the cutting-edge equipment used in our office include:
- Intra-Oral Camera – A high-quality picture can be worth more than thousands of words, particularly when it comes to examining your teeth. This is why our practice invests in superbly detailed miniature LED cameras, which can accurately capture the full HD quality of your mouth in complete color.
- Digital X-Ray – These highly specialized x-ray machines accurately detect every minute issue below the surface, allowing our dentist to pinpoint the most microscopic fissures, cracks, or cavities. They also completely decrease exposure to radiation to ensure full safety to both patients and dentists.
- Soft Tissue Laser – Sometimes, you only need the tiniest of corrections along your gum and your soft tissue lining. When this occurs, our gentle, non-invasive lasers can use delicate light energy to rid you of small blemishes or slightly change gum alignment.
- Hard Tissue Laser – A hard tissue laser is perfect for precisely eliminating decayed tooth material, even in minute quantities. Rather than simply blasting away your entire tooth, these intricate but powerful lasers can pinpoint problems while preserving healthy enamel. This not only saves the majority of your tooth but creates a stronger, longer-lasting foundation for your teeth overall.
Step Into Your Future
When our grandparents imagined the future and all the advances of technology it would bring, they often pictured flying cars or robots to do the housework. However, the future has brought us technology that is even more intricate and helpful than anyone could have ever imagined, especially when it comes to dentistry. In Bainbridge, advanced dental technology has accomplished the impossible by bringing us into the future of modern, digital medicine.
