3D Imaging Technology
Dentistry has undergone a series of significant changes in the last decade. Our contemporary practice is proud to offer the best of these technologies including 3D scanning, digital impression-taking, and a centralized in office CAD/CAM manufacturing center for one visit dentistry.
CEREC® CAD/CAM Dentistry
Our contemporary practice is proud to offer the best of these technologies including 3D scanning, digital impression-taking, and a centralized in office CAD/CAM manufacturing center for one visit dentistry.
Omnicam® 3D Digital Impressions
In addition to being much more comfortable for the patient, using the scanner allows us to be more efficient and accurate, which can result in a reduced number of visits to the office, saving the patient time.
Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays. The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment. Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film. Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care. It’s also a very green technology. By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste it is better for you and the environment!
Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
Using Electronic Medical Records, our practice is able to quickly and accurately access patient information in order to provide the utmost in patient care. This helps to ensure patient confidentiality as well as reduce the need for paper. Using a digital format allows for quick access to your information when needed for insurance records yet provides a secure filing system.
Digital Intraoral Cameras
An intra-oral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and dentist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time. With an intraoral camera, you are able to better understand what is happening in your mouth and review the status of your oral health.
Ultra Quiet Electric Handpieces
These handpieces provide less vibration and noise than traditional dental drills. Not only are they quieter, but also more efficient in tooth preparation making dental procedures shorter and more manageable.
Piezo Electric Handpieces
We offer the premier bone cutting technology of Piezosurgery, which is based on the fundamental concepts of bone microsurgery. The technology used ultrasonic low frequency micro-vibrations which allow precision cutting of bone with minimal trauma to soft tissues. It has the selectivity to cut bone while avoiding damage to soft tissue, nerves, blood vessels and even the extremely fragile sinus membrane.
The philosophy behind these minimally invasive concepts allow for improved surgical control, visability/predictability with improved treatment effectiveness. It may minimize the need for additional bone grafting procedures where possible. Additional patient benefits include less bleeding, pain and swelling with significantly faster healing (more favorable bone response) when compared to traditional approaches.
Piezosurgery has been used extensively in Europe for a number of years and is supported by a large body of scientific research. It is now available in the Unites States in most universities and in a small number of private practices. It has numerous applications in oral surgery and implant dentistry.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
These ultra quiet headphones are for patient use during any dental procedure. Patients can listen to their favorite music, movie, or television show without having to hear all of the surrounding noise going on as the dental work is being performed.
Digital Flat Screen Monitors
These monitors are found next to every patient chair. Patients can watch a movie or TV show. Patients can also view their dental radiographs when speaking to the doctor about the findings for a better understanding of their oral health.
