Here are several advanced dentistry solutions we offer:
- Air abrasion
- Intraoral camera
- 3D Cone Beam Imaging
- Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF)
- Digital X-Rays
Do you have a fear of dental drills? Air abrasion blasts away tooth decay without heat or vibration. Instead, a dental hand tool, run on compressed air, forces a mixture of natural particles to your tooth. The particles are sprayed precisely, eroding the decayed areas while leaving more of your healthy tooth intact.
Laser dentistry affords more comfort and improved recovery after soft tissue procedures. The PerioLase dental laser is an innovative and effective treatment tool for gum disease which removes bacteria and diseased tissue without the use of incisions or scalpels.
An intraoral camera is an advanced general dentistry tool that allows our doctors to take a digital image of the inside of your mouth with a pen-sized camera. The image is immediately transferred onto a monitor so that you can see what our experts are seeing.
Utilizing a hand tool that works similarly to a sand blaster, our doctors can remove spots on teeth or dental decay without the pain-inducing heat or vibration caused by dental drills.
Same-day crowns provide the ultimate in convenience and comfort. CEREC crowns are designed and fabricated for you while you wait using 3D CAD advanced general dentistry software and an innovative milling machine. No more temporary crowns.
You can enjoy less pain without needles. Oraqix® is a topical anesthetic that works quickly to numb soft tissue. Our hygienists often use it during cleanings and periodontal maintenance.
Through the use of advanced general dentistry microsurgical tools, Piezosurgery® provides a precision instrument to cut through bone. Piezosurgery® reduces swelling, bleeding, and discomfort while preserving more of your healthy teeth and bone.
Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF)
PRGF are isolated growth factors that are extracted from your own blood. When introduced to a wound or surgical treatment site, you experience dramatically improved healing times.
You can enjoy shorter visits with digital x-rays. They are immediately transferred to a monitor, avoiding the need to wait for the film to develop.
VELscope® is an advanced general dentistry tool that allows our doctors to accurately detect changes in soft tissue with a special light before they would be visible to the naked eye. VELscope® encourages early diagnosis and treatment of cancerous tissue.
3D Cone Beam 3D Imaging
The health and safety of our patients is our highest priority, which is why Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging is used in our office. This system is unlike traditional x-ray methods because it emits a very low dose of radiation, thereby lessening the amount of unnecessary exposure.
The Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging System is used in many dental procedures. It can be used to create a dental implants treatment plan, helping determine size and placement of the intended implant. It can also be used to diagnose and treat periodontal disease. The Cone Beam system provides our dentists with a clear and comprehensive view of our patients’ facial nerves and bone structure, which allows us to create a personalized procedure to protect our patients’ nerve endings. Such advanced technology allows us to minimize pain and speed up the healing process.
