Dental technology in Northest Heights 87111

At Essenmacher Family Dental, we want to provide an excellent dental experience to every patient who visits our Albuquerque, NM dental office. For this reason, we pay attention to innovations in dentistry and the latest technologies.

Dr. Lindsay Essenmacher incorporates technologies that consider the following:

  • Superior diagnostics
  • Patient education
  • Patient comfort
  • Patient convenience

Let’s explore a few of the innovative dental technologies that we offer.

Superior Diagnostics with Digital X-Rays

Your dentist in Northeast Heights relies on digital x-rays to provide clear and resizable images to assist in diagnostics.

This technology also offers a safer patient experience because digital x-rays emit far less radiation than older radiographic imaging devices.

Patient Education with Intraoral Cameras

Intraoral cameras are about the size of an ink pen but able to take close up images of your teeth and gums. Dr. Essenmacher can pull up these images on a chairside monitor to better educate you on the state of your oral health. This also allows you to make informed decisions about your dental care.

This technology provides a better understanding of why a specific treatment plan may be recommended.

Our Technologies Consider Your Comfort

At Essenmacher Family Dental, we believe that dentistry should be comfortable and not induce anxiety. Our comfort technologies include:

  • The wand—Precision anesthesia pinpoints only the area Dr. Essenmacher is working on, so you don’t have to spend hours with one side of your face numb.
  • The dental vibe system—This system delivers anesthesia in a way that reduces or eliminates the sting.
  • Soft tissue laser—This technology is ideal for periodontal disease treatment because it is less invasive than traditional surgery, meaning no stitches!

Your Convenience Matters to Us

At Essenmacher Family Dental, we offer CEREC same-day tooth crowns in Northeast Heights. This means no waiting weeks to receive your new tooth cap. Typically, we complete your dental crown in our on-site lab while you wait.

Dear valued patients,

As many of you know, in response to the recommendations from the American Dental Association and public health orders in place in New Mexico, we have been seeing patients on an urgent/emergency basis only since March 17. As a practice, our first priority is to put the health and safety of our team and community first.  

Because the exact trajectory of this pandemic cannot be anticipated, we are unable to accurately predict when we’ll be able to resume seeing patients for regular dental care.  At this time, public health orders prohibiting elective dental care extend until May 15.  However, we will definitely make an announcement on our website and Facebook when normal hours are resumed. We will also be contacting patients whose appointments were canceled so that we can reschedule.  

In the meantime, if you have any questions about an upcoming appointment, or have a concern about your teeth that you’d like to discuss, please do not hesitate to call our office.  We are happy to assist you in any way we can.  

While we all watch and wait to see what the coming weeks hold for our nation, I pray for health and peace for all of you and those you love.  I know that together, we will get through this. Take care and God bless. Visit our Facebook page for a message from Dr. Essenmacher. 

Best Regards,

Dr. Essenmacher
