We offer some of the latest dental technologies in our state-of-the-art office, including:
X-ray technology is necessary for determining the health of your teeth and gums so dentists can diagnose and treat conditions unnoticeable to the naked eye. While traditional radiographs were the only optional available for many years, digital technology has made taking x-rays more convenient for both patient and doctor, providing immediate images for more precise diagnoses.
During your examination, a small electronic sensor is placed inside your mouth that can capture high resolution images that will be instantly delivered to a nearby computer. This allows the dentist to zoom in and magnify the images to identify the early stages of tooth decay or the smallest cracks. With digital technology, your images can be easily stored and kept for easy access so the dentist can compare past and current x-rays to locate any changes. In addition, digital x-rays emit much less radiation, making them a safer option.
X-rays are used to detect and treat:
- Tooth infections within the underlying layers
- Periodontal disease
- Tooth loss or injury
- Abnormal tooth development
- Impacted teeth
CEREC® technology, also known as Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, uses CAD/CAM dentistry (computer-assisted design and computer-aided manufacturing) to provide same-day restorations for patients who are missing teeth or need a damaged tooth repaired. This technology has revolutionized the dental industry and helped streamline care. CEREC® can be used to manufacture customized dental crowns, inlays or onlays, and a number of other restorations in just one office visit. This eliminates the need for temporary restorations and multiple follow-up appointments.
During your visit, the tooth requiring treatment will be prepared. Digital impressions will then me taken and immediately uploaded to the CEREC® machine. It will use these images to craft a personalized model of your mouth so that it can fabricate a restoration that closely resembles the natural aesthetics of your smile.
diode soft tissue laser
Traditional gum surgery involves the use of scalpels and sutures, and generally requires a long recovery with a higher risk of infection. With the introduction of the diode soft tissue laser, dental procedures have become more comfortable and recovery periods significantly shortened. The diode soft tissue laser uses high-powered light energy in varying wavelengths to penetrate soft tissue. Because it can trim and seal tissue simultaneously, it results in reduced post-op discomfort, less bleeding, and faster recovery.
