Digital Radiographs (X-rays)
The benefits of digital radiographs are two-fold: less radiation for you, and an instantaneous picture for Dr. Farless. This technology provides you with more peace of mind and more efficient care.
Sleep Apnea and Snoring
No one likes to listen to snoring at night, but if you snore, this could be much more serious than just a noisy habit that keeps your partner up at night. Snoring occurs when the soft palate of the mouth relaxes to the point of partially obstructing your airway, creating the characteristic sound as you sleep. However, if your airway becomes completely blocked for several seconds, you experience a much more serious condition called sleep apnea.
Every patient is different, and so is every sleep disorder. However, Dr. Farless could have the solution to your problem with a custom-fitted snore appliance. This small, comfortable device holds your airway open as you sleep, silencing those annoying snores, and protecting you from the dangers of sleep apnea. If you or a loved one has a snoring problem, talk to Dr. Farless today about having a snore appliance created for you.
Dr. Farless utilizes cosmetic imaging to see how your appearance might change with the application of cosmetic dentistry. This technological innovation allows your dental team to better envision your care while helping you understand your treatment in order to make the best decisions for your smile.
For the very best in detailed cosmetic imaging, Dr. Farless trusts Cone Beam 3D Imaging. Going above and beyond flat, two-dimensional X-rays, Cone Beam images provide a 3D digital replica of the bones and tissue of your face, teeth, jaw, and head. With the freedom to easily manipulate your computerized image, Dr. Farless can zoom in on specific areas, view your scan from various angles, and provide a useful tool to understand (and help you understand) the complete makeup of your smile. Best of all, as the Cone Beam scanner rotates around your head in one complete circle (in just 10 seconds), you will feel no pain and experience a lower dose of radiation than with a traditional CT scan.

With digital photography, Dr. Farless can take and store instantaneous images and keep them on file to track your progress over time. This is just another small way that modern technology contributes to more efficient care for you.

Relax, your comfort is our priority.
Sedation dentistry can help you relieve anxiety during dental procedures like fillings or root canals.
According to the Consumer Guide to Dentistry, 15 percent of adult Americans avoid necessary dental care because they were afraid. Since poor oral health can lead to other healthcare problems, Dr. Farless understands it is important to find ways for patients to feel more comfortable about seeing the dentist.
The sedatives dentists use to promote relaxation can be administered in a variety of ways. The most common methods are initiation, oral and IV.
Most patients prefer sedation that ranges from light to moderate. They may be groggy or sleepy, but he or she is never completely unconscious. The patient may not be able to recall much of the procedure after it is over.
Nitrous oxide, which is inhaled through a mask that covers the nose, is a popular choice for light sedation. It also clears the body quickly so that the patient can drive shortly after receiving it.
Early detection is the key to successful treatment in all aspects of your health. Cavities in your teeth are no exception. To aid in finding dental caries when they are first forming, Dr. Farless trusts CariVu™ – a small, portable unit utilizing patented transillumination technology. When cavities are in the very early stages and can be missed by other detection methods, CariVu™ can help your dentist correct the problem before it progresses.
