Do I need this treatment?
You have a right to be an active participant in making decisions about your dental treatment. We work with complete honesty and integrity and won’t ever push or oversell a treatment. We’ll answer your questions and make recommendations, but it is ultimately up to you as to whether or not you choose to receive a certain service.
Since it’s so important for you to be part of the process, we focus on patient education. Making sound decisions about your treatment is easy when you are armed with information. State-of-the-art diagnostic technology at Reflections Dental Spa allows us to share and educate you about why treatment is necessary.
Panoramic digital x-rays allow us to look deep inside your tooth, then show you the results on a chairside monitor. Dr. Thomas can highlight and zoom in on the images to give you an in-depth understanding of the problem. Intraoral cameras are effective for viewing the inside of your mouth, and we can view these images together so we can pinpoint the problem for you. CariVu transillumination lights up your tooth so Dr. Thomas can identify decay or fractures before they become a problem.
When you can see what we see, you are better able to understand the need for a particular treatment. We answer all your questions thoroughly because we want you to feel confident when you make a decision about treatment.
