Streamlining Care with Advanced Dental Technology
Technology has made a large impact on the way doctors can provide personalized and comfortable care for their patients. Along with virtually eliminating pain during and after a procedure, advanced dental technology has increased the accuracy of diagnosis and treatment planning and provides safer experiences for patients. Many times, patients who receive dental care with the aid of advanced technology recover quickly and have very little post-operative bleeding at the site. With the help of such technologies like laser dentistry and cone beam CT scanners, we can offer treatment that is highly customized, streamlined, and effective!
Cone Beam 3-D Imaging
CT Scans and Cone Beam Imaging systems generate 3D, high definition x-rays within seconds. The panoramic images are remarkably clear, which helps with diagnosing and treating dental ailments. These scans allow us to quickly assess your dental needs and get you back out enjoying your life in less time than you might expect from traditional imaging equipment. The health and safety of our patients is our highest priority, which is why we utilize a cone beam imaging system in our office. Unlike traditional x-ray systems, the Cone Beam system produces a very low dose of radiation, thus reducing unnecessary exposure.
Some additional benefits of cone beam imaging include:
- Visualize anatomy that can not be diagnosed externally or from traditional x-rays
- Create better, more effective treatment plans
- Assess benefits and risk of treatment options
- Analyze the position and orientation of critical structures, such as nerves, prior to the procedure
- Up to 10x less radiation exposure to the patient than traditional x-rays
- Faster scan time (10-40 seconds vs. several minutes)
- Less expensive
The Intraoral Camera Allows Us To View In More Depth Your Dental Condition!
The intraoral camera allows us to view your teeth and gums with more precise clarity. The camera helps us identify early any underlying dental issues or concerns so that we can treat them early and more accurately. A faster, more accurate diagnosis means less chair time for you!
Computerized Anesthesia Reduces The Discomfort Of Anesthesia Injection
Doctors have long known that the main cause of discomfort or pain during an injection is the flow of the anesthetic into your tissues. The STA®System is a computer controlled anesthesia system that allows the doctor precise control over the location and amount of anesthesia that is administered. Using the Wand® hand piece allows for complete accuracy that was previously unattainable. The Wand® is a pre-programed anesthetic delivery device that controls the flow of anesthetic into your tissues.
