Dr. Karanvir Sibia and the staff at Ace Dental in Roseville want their patients to have only the best when they come in for a dental exam or a procedure. That’s why, at Ace Dental, the best and the newest dental technology is used to make sure that patients are taken care of right!
The intraoral camera is about the size of a dental mirror so it fits easily into the patient’s mouth. The image from the camera is projected onto a monitor and magnified, so that both the dentist and the patient can get a really good look at teeth, to find any problems and potential problems that might be missed with the naked eye.
This image can help Dr. Sibia explain to the patient why a treatment is recommended, and why one treatment might be preferable over another. These images can also be sent to a specialist if a referral needs to be made, or to the patient’s insurance company when filing a request for treatment coverage.

Using rotary endodontics, Dr. Sibia can make a root canal procedure smoother and more comfortable than it would be with older techniques.
A root canal procedure has to be done when the inside soft pulp of a tooth becomes infected.
In root canal therapy, a small hole is drilled in the top of the tooth and the infected pulp is removed. The inside of the tooth is cleaned out and filled with an elastic material. Then, a filling or crown is placed to protect the tooth.
Rotary endodontics make the procedure go a lot faster. Rotary endodontics involves the use of electric instruments, rather than traditional hand-held files. Patients appreciate that these instruments are much quieter than other instruments — a root canal can be done without the loud grinding noise that most people associate with the procedure.
Experience the difference of gentle root canal therapy!
You may think that if you don’t smoke that you don’t have to worry about getting oral cancer. However, an oral cancer screening is a very important part of every dental exam, even if you have never smoked. It is important to catch and treat oral cancer in the early stages.
Oral cancer can affect the mouth, throat, or sinuses. Sometimes a person with early-stage oral cancer shows no symptoms and doesn’t have any pain. However, if oral cancer isn’t treated and has the chance to get worse, it can spread to another location — often the lymph nodes of the neck and deep into other structures.
There are some habits, such as smoking and drinking alcohol, that can increase the risk of getting oral cancer, but it is important to know that over 25% of all oral cancers occur in people who only occasionally drink and who don’t smoke at all.
Dr. Sibia will perform a screening for oral cancer during your regular dental cleaning and exam.
He will begin by checking for symptoms of oral cancer, and then he will feel your neck, head, and oral cavity for any lumps or irregularities. He will also perform a visual exam, by looking in your mouth for any sores or discolored tissue.
But Dr. Sibia will also use the latest in dental technology to help him catch any signs of cancer early. He will use a special ultraviolet light or a similar device that will let him see any irregularities that might be missed with the naked eye.
We’ll do an oral cancer screening with your dental exam!
Dentists have used X-rays for years to look for problems that you can’t see with the naked eye. X-rays are necessary so the dentist can check the inside of your teeth, in between your teeth, beneath the gum line, and the jaw bone.
But if you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, you may not know about digital X-rays, which have many advantages over traditional X-rays. Digital X-rays are safer than the old X-ray techniques, and because the images are so clean, they help to ensure that any problems (or potential problems) with a patient’s oral health are caught early.
The first part of the digital X-ray process is very much like getting a traditional X-ray. A sensor is inserted into the patient’s mouth. However, with a digital X-ray, this sensor is connected to a computer, with a monitor that displays the results within seconds. This means that you don’t have to sit around waiting for X-rays to be developed.
Digital X-rays also have nearly 80% less radiation than traditional X-ray techniques, which is good to know for patients that often have to get X-rays when they go to the doctor or dentist.
