Covid-19 Health Update

Acadia Family Dentistry considers the health and safety of our patients and staff as our highest priority. We have implemented some additional precautionary measures apart from the universal precautions to ensure the health and well-being of everyone. Some of these measures are:
  • Scheduling high-risk patients at designated times
  • Subjecting all patients to a temperature scan at the entrance to ensure their temperatures are below 100.4 degrees.
  • Disinfecting reception room, check-in and check-out countertops and bathrooms every hour, and wiping doorknobs and sinks with disinfectant regularly.
  • Hydrogen peroxide rinses provided before treatment begins.
  • All patients will call to notify staff of their arrivals and wait in the car until they are ready to be seen.
  • Removing magazines, toys, and non-essential items from the reception room.
  • Practicing social distancing: which includes no handshaking and hugging.

State-of-the-Art Dental Technology in Thibodaux, LA

State-of-the-Art Dental Technology in Thibodaux, LA

New advancements in dental technology have made it easier and more comfortable than ever to get the dental care you need. Dr. Nhu Le at Acadia Family Dentistry in Thibodaux, LA, specializes in various treatments for patients with a range of symptoms. Her office is specifically designed to put every patient at ease, and it contains some of the most advanced dental technology available.

Intraoral Cameras

Intraoral cameras take high-resolution images of your mouth, allowing Dr. Le to target specific areas or the whole jaw. These digital images give her insight into areas in your mouth that would otherwise be difficult to see, allowing her to identify issues before they become larger and more complicated.

These cameras are small and pen-like and can be easily positioned inside your mouth to take detailed pictures of otherwise difficult areas to see with the naked eye. These images can then be immediately accessed and reviewed by both you and your doctor.

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays are a vast improvement on traditional x-rays. They are safer and allow Dr. Le to see higher-quality and more in-depth than x-rays ever have. Digital x-rays take only a few seconds to capture images, and the sensors used are much smaller and more comfortable than traditional x-rays. Your safe, high-quality digital x-rays can be viewed instantly and are easily transferred to specialists, if necessary. You can also keep a copy for your files if needed. Digital x-rays also produce no hazardous waste, so they are more environmentally friendly than traditional x-rays.

Laser Gum Treatment

Dr. Le also specializes in using dental lasers to treat soft tissues, reduce the need for surgical treatments, or drilling when battling gum disease. Lasers allow her to focus only on the infected or damaged tissues, preserving healthy tissue whenever possible. Lasers can also seal nerve endings, reducing discomfort when healing.

Intraoral Scanners

These digital devices allow Dr. Le to get a comprehensive view of the layout and underlying structures of your bite, replacing the need for putty impressions when preparing you for crowns or dentures. Intraoral scanners can take in-depth images of your jaw, allowing Dr. Le to access parts of your mouth previously unseen. This increases the effectiveness and stability of your restoration, as well as your comfort throughout the process.
