Dr. Jason Keefe, established dentist in Spokane, WA, recently acquired the practice of Dr. Andrew Biggs, formerly known as Spokane’s Smiles, and is now offering local patients access to some of the latest dental technology at his newly branded practice, 5 Mile Smiles. Dr. Keefe purchased the practice after treating patients in the Spokane and Kettle Falls, WA areas for more than 20 years. 5 Mile Smiles is conveniently located in North Spokane near the 5 Mile Shopping Center.
At his new practice, Dr. Keefe has brought on board a variety of advanced dental technology that allows him and his staff to provide patients with the absolute highest standard of care. Some of these technological offerings include CEREC same-day crowns, computer enhanced cavity detection, virtual implant placement imaging, near-invisible aligners for orthodontic correction, and more.
CEREC technology uses advanced computer imaging and milling procedures to design and fabricate all-ceramic crowns for patients in just one visit. While the traditional process for crown fabrication requires at least two different office visits over the course of 1-2 weeks, Dr. Keefe is able to create these crowns essentially while patients wait in the office. With CEREC technology, Dr. Keefe does not need to use standard impression material that is cumbersome for patients and does not have to send the impressions to an external lab. Patients at 5 Mile Smiles can have their digital impressions taken, their tooth prepared, and the new all-ceramic crown placed in just one office visit.
Using Logicon Caries Detector Software, Dr. Keefe can provide 98% accuracy in finding cavities in their earliest stages. This technology assists in detecting tooth decay that is not always obvious to the human eye when looking at standard digital X-rays. By detecting these cavities early on, Dr. Keefe can provide patients with restorative options that are less invasive and oftentimes don’t require any numbing or drilling. As a result, these restorations are also much less expensive as well.
For adult patients who are missing one or more permanent teeth, and who are good candidates for dental implants, Dr. Keefe offers the 9300 C CBCT machine that offers pre-surgery virtual implant placement imaging. This technology allows Dr. Keefe to place implants in the safest and most accurate positions possible to give the implants the most potential for success, offering the patient a lifetime of use for their new tooth or teeth. Dr. Keefe uses Implant Direct Legacy Implants that are proven to be some of the best designs offered in the industry.
Patients of Dr. Keefe seeking straighter smiles can also take advantage of the clear aligners he offers for orthodontic correction. With Invsalign and ClearCorrect technology, patients can still enjoy showing off their smile even while undergoing orthodontic treatment. These clear plastic aligners do not require the use of traditional metal wires and brackets to straighten teeth and offer patients much more lifestyle flexibility during the treatment period.
At 5 Mile Smiles, Dr. Keefe also offers state-of-the-art in-office root canal therapy, pediatric dentistry, and a comprehensive lineup of cosmetic dental services.
