Technology

Thanks to advancements in dental technology, you can now receive cutting-edge solutions to dental issues. The purpose of technological developments is to provide you with cutting-edge dental treatment that can be conducted in a more effective, efficient, and comfortable manner. Your dentist has access to a wide selection of dental technology, many of which offer benefits that can make your treatment more comfortable and convenient for you. Among the more popular technologies are:

Dental Cone Beam CT

Cone beam technology produces a digitized tomographic 3D picture of the patient’s area of concern. While a traditional x-ray is just two-dimensional. Cone-beam systems allow the dentist to view the tooth and its surrounds from any angle. The 3D Cone Beam scanner uses less radiation than conventional medical CT technology and offers practically limitless images of the teeth. Fast, easy, and painless, this new technology offers several fantastic advantages that weren’t available until recently.

CAD/CAM Dentistry

A repair can be completed faster thanks to enhanced treatment options provided by computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided milling (CAM). Your dental restoration(s) may be able to be placed the same day or the following day instead of the customary wait of one to two weeks or more, depending on the procedure(s) being performed. Utilizing a revolutionary scanner, the doctor can capture a digital impression without using standard trays, increasing patient comfort. The restoration(s) are then built using cutting-edge computer 3D technology, which allows you to see how the new restoration will interact with your existing teeth.

The strength of a new crown can be increased by milling a solid piece of tooth-colored composite material, which may be stronger than most crowns made in a dental lab. Technology and material advancements have opened up a wide range of possibilities for exceptional restorations that can look fantastic, offer more strength than traditional restorations, and require fewer office visits.

Oral Cancer Screening

Hundreds of U.S. citizens are diagnosed with mouth cancer yearly. We use cutting-edge technology to detect lesions or changes in the consistency of oral tissue. A specialized light is used to illuminate the mouth in order to locate diseased tissue. Inside this light, sick tissue looks black, but good tissue appears lighter. Cancer can be detected early and stopped from spreading, thereby saving lives.

Ultra Quiet Electric Handpieces

Compared to conventional dental drills, these handpieces produce less vibration and noise. Apart from being quieter, they also prepare teeth more effectively, shortening and simplifying dental treatments.

Lasers

Numerous important advancements have been achieved as a result of the usage of lasers in dentistry. Because of the use of lasers, procedures may be conducted with less discomfort, tissue loss, and bleeding. When a laser is employed, some treatments can be performed without any drilling or anesthesia. Lasers are used at our clinic to improve your visit and provide cutting-edge care.

Digital X-ray

When comparing digital x-rays to film x-rays, digital x-rays utilize less radiation. Because of the expanded diagnostic capabilities of digital x-rays and the ability to see the pictures on a computer screen, the patient may more readily understand and comply with therapy. There is no longer any need to wait for the film to develop with digital x-rays. Digital x-rays increase patient care while also saving time. It is a very environmentally friendly technique. Avoiding film, developer, and chemical waste is better for the environment and you!

Intra-Oral Dental Camera

An intraoral camera is cutting-edge video technology and amazing dental care in one package. Both you and the dentist can see your mouth and teeth in real-time. Using an intraoral camera, the specialist can better understand what’s going on in your mouth and evaluate the state of your gums and teeth.

Soft Tissue Lasers

Periodontal (gum) surgeries are conducted using soft tissue lasers. These lasers deliver superior results because they are more effective, less painful, encourage quicker healing, and reduce the risk of infection.

Optical Scanners

Optical Scanners offer a digital map of the tooth and build a 3-D replica representation of the dental structure. This aids in exact color analysis for cosmetic restorations such as porcelain veneers, crowns, and bridges made in dental laboratories.

TV Monitors in Treatment Rooms

One of these monitors is located next to each patient’s chair. Patients can watch a movie or a television show. In order to have a better knowledge of their oral health, patients can also view their dental radiographs while discussing them with the doctor.

Wi-Fi

You are welcome to use our office’s free Wi-Fi during your visits.
