Dental Imaging

Here at Houghton Family Dental Care, we use state-of-the-art equipment to produce extraordinarily high-resolution images of your teeth as well as the surrounding gum tissue and bone structure. Modern digital imaging lets us view your entire oral environmental in astounding detail so that we may tend to areas that normally go unnoticed and identify potential problems before they become painful and costly.

Invisalign

Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign’s clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.

Dental Services at Houghton Family Dental Care

Cosmetic Dentistry

Our dental team is ready to give you a smile that looks as good as it feels. If you would like to reverse the dulling effects of diet and age, we offer a wide variety of highly effective teeth whitening techniques. We can also find the ideal method for correcting crooked teeth or a misaligned bite. From traditional braces to innovative products like Invisalign clear aligners, our team will work with you to determine what method works best for your lifestyle and dental needs. Invisalign utilizes clear teeth aligners that are less noticeable than metal braces. They are also removable, making them an excellent choice for those who prefer versatility.

Restorative Dentistry

Are you experiencing a toothache? Have you chipped or broken a tooth? Do you need a professional dental examination to find the cause of your pain? At Houghton Family Dental Care we offer a comprehensive suite of restorative procedures from filling a cavity to applying a bridge or crown. Our highly trained hygienists and dentists will conduct a thorough exam and consult with you on the results in order to determine the most effective, affordable, and comfortable treatment.

Innovative Technology for Dental Care

Here at Houghton Family Dental Care, we utilize the most advanced, up-to-date technology in order to diagnose and treat dental problems with the highest level of accuracy and effectiveness. You no longer have to deal with time-consuming, uncomfortable traditional dental x-rays. Instead, we use non-invasive, painless equipment to instantly produce high-resolution dental images and x-rays that allow our dentist to identify problems such as tooth decay, worn enamel, gum disease, or micro-fractures that would normally remain undetectable and untreated.

We are able to reduce the duration of your dental visit to Houghton Family Dental Care by using the iTero Element digital scanner to quickly obtain an extremely high-quality image of your entire dental structure. You are able to see not only the current condition of your teeth, but also a before-and-after-simulation of your ideal smile – and this is all done without the discomfort of using dental trays and impression goo to produce a physical model. The iTero Element scanner is non-invasive, convenient, and comfortable for dental imaging while allowing our dentist to deliver a higher level of care to our patients.
