Informed Decisions with the
One of the ways Dr. Hopp creates a bond of teamwork with his
patients is through the use of a high-tech tool, the intra-oral
camera. This amazing device is a miniature video camera that
displays a closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. When you
confer with Dr. Hopp, he can show you exactly what work needs to be
done and which teeth are healthy. You can then make fully informed
decisions about your dental care. You’ll love how this works!
Radiation by 75% with Digital X-Rays
Our practice is very pleased to provide panoramic digital X-rays.
With this technology, we take an X-ray of your mouth with a digital
sensor and download it into our computer, where it is immediately
available. Even better, the panoramic technology eliminates the
"ouch" of bitewing X-rays! You bite down on a small mouthpiece while
the machine revolves around your head. This allows us to view your
entire mouth in one comprehensive snapshot, including the upper and
lower jaws. These methods result in 75% less radiation than
conventional X-rays. No more waiting for images to develop and no
more chemical waste to pollute the environment.
Virtually Painless Treatment for Gum Disease
Laser technology has done amazing things for vision and other
medical procedures, and we’re very pleased to offer non-surgical
treatment of gum disease. The advanced dental laser not only
provides results that might have been considered miraculous several
years ago, the treatment is virtually painless. The procedure is
minimal and patient friendly, and the results have been
overwhelmingly positive. We have successfully treated many cases of
periodontal (gum) disease without the need for gum surgery. This
laser is safe and effective, and is FDA approved.
Gum Disease Painlessly
Would you believe the reason for tooth loss is periodontal (gum)
disease? Dr. Hopp is excited to be able to bring his patients
ARESTIN™, a powerful weapon in the fight against gum disease. The
time-released antibiotic is carried by a powder in very tiny
microspheres that are not visible to the eye. These microspheres
deliver the antibiotic directly to the spaces between the gums and
teeth, where the infection thrives. ARESTIN kills the bacteria that
cause gum disease. The best part is that it's all painless!
– Faster, More Comfortable Treatment is Now Possible!
Dr. Johnny Hopp has adopted the use of a technology that can reduce
your time spent in the chair by up to one third! Isolite has two
parts: a suction device and a brilliant light that lights up the
inside of your mouth and removes shadowed areas. This makes
everything much easier for the dentist to see. It also keeps teeth
and gums dry, which is essential for top results.
Your Children Play Sports?
Many people cringe when they hear that in the U.S. alone, 5 million
teeth are knocked out yearly. Sports have many health and fitness
benefits, but mouth trauma can occur in a split second. If your
child doesn’t have the right protection, that trauma can have
long-lasting consequences. You can buy one-size-fits-all mouthguards
in stores. But for the best possible results, your child needs
custom protection so they can breathe properly while they run in
sports like soccer or basketball. Our custom-made athletic
mouthguards are designed for excellent fit and protection, and they
can be worn for any sport: soccer, baseball, basketball, football,
