We offer our patients the best that dentistry has to offer. We’ve invested heavily in advanced technologies to better serve you and your smile! Here’s a list of some of the latest technologies you might notice during your treatment:
- Soft tissue laser
- Pulse oximeter with emergency alert
- Bio/Screen oral cancer detection technology
- 3D dental imaging with CBCT
- Digital X-Rays
- Intraoral camera
- Zoom! LED teeth whitening system
- Advanced dental implant technology
- Rotary root canal machine
It’s no surprise that laser has become very useful in dentistry. There is a wide range of application for lasers. We use soft tissue laser for different applications, such as:
- Trimming excessive gum tissue
- Cleaning deep periodontal pockets
- Fixing small dental cavities without the need to use needles
- Accelerating chair-side teeth whitening
One of the biggest advantages of using a laser is that it causes nearly no pain or discomfort. Plus, surgeries performed using laser cause next to no bleeding. Most dental procedures performed using laser can be performed without a needle/shot. For our laser treatment we utilize the versatile Odyssey soft tissue laser system.
Pulse oximeter is primarily used for oral conscious sedation. The pulse oximeter device monitors your blood pressure, heart rate, and hemoglobin blood saturation. The device sends an automatic alert should your vitals fall below a safe level. This alerts your doctor to take corrective measures to get you back into the safe zone. We use hospital-grade Criticare eQuality Patient Monitoring system.
Did you know that oral cancer accounts for nearly 1% of all cancers? Each year 50,000 new cases of oral cancer are diagnosed. Like most other cancers, early detection is key to long-term survival. This is why we have invested in the Bio/Screen Oral Exam System to assist in the early diagnosis of cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. The Bio/Screen device emits a special blue light that identifies early tissue alterations which are otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Suspicious lesions are sent to the pathology lab using brush biopsy to see if there are suspicious cells that require further investigation or referred out when necessary.
Advanced imaging is essential to performing surgical procedures like dental implants, wisdom tooth extractions, etc. We use our panoramic X-ray to identify missing teeth, impacted wisdom teeth, and other suspicious oral lesions. CBCT scan is used to capture 3-dimensional images to identify landmarks such as nerves and sinus position for dental implant placement. We use Carestream 9000 2D/3D, manufactured by Kodak, which takes full face panoramic X-rays as well as 3-D CBCT radiographs.
Did you know that digital X-rays emit nearly half the radiation of traditional X-rays? Plus, digital X-rays are safer, more convenient, and more comfortable than traditional film X-rays. They also capture more fine details. We proudly use SOTA sensor and CLEO imaging software for our digital radiography.
Intraoral cameras are used to capture photos of your teeth and mouth. Photos are a great supplement to X-rays to help you visualize what’s actually going on inside your mouth. We use an intraoral camera to detect tartar buildup, cracked teeth, broken fillings, and other visible defects. Plus, our intraoral camera helps us track your progress when receiving cosmetic dentistry treatment by providing before and after photos of your new smile. This is a great way to keep records of what your teeth look like before and after teeth whitening, porcelain veneer, and other cosmetic dental procedures.
[ps2id id=’zoom’/]ZOOM! LED teeth whitening system
Zoom! teeth whitening system is undoubtedly one of the best teeth whitening systems out there. Zoom uses a special LED light to break down hydrogen peroxide gel particles to yield better whitening results. We carry the latest Zoom LED light, known as Advanced Power Plus, which is extremely effective and causes minimal post-op sensitivity.
We perform all phases of dental implant treatment, therefore we require the use of different implant technologies. These include implant motor, Dentium sinus graft kit, block bone graft screw-mesh kit, and a dental implant retrieval system. We’re prepared to do it all when it comes to dental implants. No matter your dental implant needs, we can fix your problem. We offer several different implant systems including Zimmer, Hiossen and Dentis dental implants. Our primary dental implant system is Nobel Active. We also offer metal-free dental implants including Z-system and Nobel Pearl zirconia implants.
Rotary root canal, or rotary endo, significantly facilitates root canal therapy. Rotary endo is a device that uses subtle oscillation to automatically clean out your nerve canals. Using rotary endo makes root canal treatment quicker and more precise. In our office, we use different rotary root canal systems including Militex Union Broach and NSK rotary system. We also use SybronEndo Touch ‘N Heat to dissect the root canal Gutta Percha with extreme precision.
