We offer our patients the best that dentistry has to offer. Therefore, we invest heavily in advanced technologies to better serve you and your smile! Here's a list of some of the latest technologies used at Oceansight Dental & Implants:
Laser has become very useful in dentistry with its wide range of applications. We use soft tissue lasers for different treatments 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 have next to no bleeding. Finally, most procedures performed with a laser do not require a needle or shot. For our laser treatment, we utilize the versatile Odyssey soft tissue laser system.
A pulse oximeter is necessary for administering oral conscious sedation. The pulse oximeter monitors your blood pressure, heart rate, and hemoglobin blood saturation during sedation. The device sends an automatic alert should your vitals fall below the safety level. This alerts your doctor to take corrective measures to get you back into the safe zone. We use a hospital-grade Criticare eQuality Patient Monitoring system.
Did you know that oral cancer accounts for nearly 1% of all cancers worldwide? Each year 50,000 new cases of oral cancer are diagnosed. Like other cancers, early detection is the key to long-term survival. This is why we have invested in Bio/Screen cancer detectors to assist in the early diagnosis of cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. Bio/Screen emits a special blue light that identifies early tissue alterations otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Suspicious lesions are sent to the pathology lab using brush biopsy to see if it requires further investigation or referral.
Advanced imaging is essential to performing surgical procedures like dental implants, wisdom tooth extractions, etc. Panoramic X-rays identify missing teeth, impacted wisdom teeth, and other suspicious oral lesions. CBCT scans are used to capture 3-dimensional images to identify landmarks such as facial nerves and sinus membranes. This is essential to correctly placing dental implants and measuring their success. We use the Carestream 9000 2D/3D, manufactured by Kodak, for panoramic X-rays as well as 3-D CBCT radiographs.
Did you know that digital X-rays emit nearly half the radiation as compared to traditional film X-rays? Digital X-rays are safer, more convenient, and more comfortable than traditional film X-rays. They also capture more details and your dentist can enlarge them to better inspect and visualize your teeth. We proudly use the SOTA sensor and CLEO imaging software for our digital radiography.
Intraoral cameras capture photos of teeth, gums, and the rest of your mouth. Photos are a great supplement to X-rays to help you better 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 through before and after photos.
Zoom! teeth whitening system is undoubtedly one of the best teeth whitening systems. 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 multiple different implant tools. Here are some of the most common tools we use for our dental implant treatments:
- Dental implant motor
- Dentium sinus graft kit
- Block bone graft screw-mesh kit
- Dental implant universal screwdriver/ratchet system
As you can see, 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 carry multiple different implant systems including Zimmer, Hiossen, and Nobel dental implants. Our primary dental implant system is Nobel Active. We also offer zirconia dental implants including Z-system and Nobel Pearl zirconia implants.
Using A rotary root canal device significantly facilitates root canal treatment. Rotary endo uses subtle oscillation to automatically clean out the 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 systems. We also use SybronEndo Touch ‘N Heat to dissect the root canal Gutta Percha with extreme precision.
