Oral cancer is one of the deadliest forms of cancer, and rates are on the rise. We’re one of only 15% of dentists in the US that provides regular oral cancer screenings at every exam. We use VELscope technology to help us detect abnormal cells beneath the surface, so we can catch any potential problems before they progress.
We know the worst part of any dental treatment for many folks is the injection, but it doesn’t have to hurt! We use a topical anesthetic to numb the area before the injection, so you will hardly feel the prick of the needle. Our patients with a fear of needles love the way we provide painless injections to make them more comfortable.
Don’t settle for other dentists in New Lenox that don’t offer the latest and greatest technology. Schedule a visit with Dr. Etchison, Dr. Pycinska, or Dr. Eberhardt at Nelson Ridge Family Dental today!
Digital x-rays reduce your exposure to radiation by up to 90% and can be taken in a matter of moments right from the dental chair. We can view your images almost instantly for a more seamless experience.
Our CEREC same-day milling machine allows us to digitally design, fabricate, and place restorations like inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges, and veneers all in a single appointment. One and done!
Our CBCT scanner helps us take panoramic x-rays for a more complete picture of your oral structures and create 3D models that help us diagnose and treat problems with precision accuracy.
It can be hard to know which oral health products are the best when perusing the never-ending toothpaste aisle. But do you know who does? We do! CariFree® offers a game-changing line of products including toothpaste, rinses, and xylitol gum to help balance your oral pH for a healthier environment that fends off the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease.
Oral-B® is one of the highest-recommended toothbrush brands by dental professionals. Manual brushes are fine, but how you use them is most important. Electric toothbrushes provide up to 1,000x more brush strokes per minute than manual brushes for dramatically increased cleaning power with less effort. We would be happy to recommend a brush that suits your needs.
We are a paperless office, so everything is simple and digital. We also have TV’s in the waiting room, and on the walls and ceilings of each treatment room so you can relax while we care for you.
