We offer our patients the best that dentistry has to offer. This is why we have invested heavily in numerous advanced technologies to better serve you and your family. From advanced digital imaging to dental lasers, rotary root canal technology to dental implant planning software, we only use the latest and greatest. Here’s a list of some of the latest technologies you might notice us using 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. This is due to the wide range of applications laser can be used for. We use soft tissue laser for many different dental 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 laser is that it causes almost no pain. Plus, surgeries performed using laser cause nearly no bleeding. Most dental procedures performed with laser don’t require a 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 us in early diagnosis of cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. The Bio/Screen device 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 there are suspicious cells that require further investigation.
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. Our CT scan feature is used to capture 3-dimensional images to identify landmarks such as your nerves and sinus position for dental implant placement. We use Carestream 9000 2D/3D, manufactured by Kodak, to take our panoramic and CT radiographs.
Did you know that digital X-rays emit nearly half the radiation of traditional X-rays? Digital X-rays are safe, convenient, and more comfortable than traditional film X-rays. They also capture more 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. Using an intraoral camera is a great supplement to X-rays since pictures help you better visualize what’s actually going on inside your mouth. We use 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 in less time. 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. We also offer ceramic dental implants including Z-system and Nobel Pearl ceramic 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 much 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.
