In our office, we use the Isolite dry-field illuminator. This device is a soft-bite block that allows you to rest while we do your work. We have found that a lot of our patients actually fall asleep while we are working on them.
This isolation also allows us to do the best fillings that we can. Tooth-colored fillings (composites) are very technique sensitive, and proper technique allows us to give you the best possible result. This can result in fillings that last longer and have less sensitivity.
