NO IMPRESSIONS, NO RETURN VISIT, NO TEMPORARY CROWNS
Digital x-rays are taken using sensors that transmit the image directly into a computer monitor. This larger image helps the patient understand the doctor's explanations more easily and enables the doctor to "zoom in" on a specific area of the tooth. One main advantage to this technology is that it reduces the amount of radiation by 400%. Digital x-rays are also quite a bit faster. The digital image only takes a second or two to appear. In addition, this technology is environmentally friendly since no chemicals are needed for developing the image.
Computer Digital Radiography (CDR)
We Utilize an ultrasonic scaler know as the Cavitron. Power scalers do a significantly more thorough job in less time. The results, decreased scaling time and cleaner, healthier teeth and gums. Hand scalers require repetitive scraping movements and are restricted to adaptation of only one or two sides of the instrument. In comparison, all four sides of a power scaler can be adapted, because the device moves in an elliptical motion. This comes in handy when removing stain and deposits from behind and between the teeth. Ultrasonic scalers are more effective in removing stain as well. The ultrasonic vibration helps control oral bacteria by breaking down the cell wall of the bacteria. The water used to cool the Cavitron then helps to rinse away bacteria, stain and debris.
Multi-Media Patient Education
Our treatment rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art patient-education computer systems. If you are uncertain about a particular procedure, we will be happy to pull up an explanatory video to help make you more comfortable with the procedure.
New technology in veneer fabrication involving the CEREC® allows our offices to perform dazzling transformations with minimal surface preparation. This can all be done in house with one visit to save time
Ceramic Fillings Created With CEREC®
Ceramic fillings are created to fit precisely for tooth. Ceramics are harder, more stain resistance and last longer than traditional fillings. The best part is the technology is in house and can be completed all in one visit.
