Cone Beam Tomography
This type of imaging provides superior analysis of your bone structure, teeth and gums, which is important when determining which treatment is best for you. In addition, this technology is used with 3D implant planning. Once scanned, we can virtually perform the surgery and construct a surgical guide/stent, a valuable tool that brings ease and accuracy to each surgery.
The laser device is compact and works by generating a beam of concentrated light energy to a precise area. This advanced technology has a variety of benefits and can be used to treat gum disease and tooth decay, in addition to preventing gum disease.
MI paste is a water-based creme that is applied directly to the teeth and is an important step of our preventative home care program. The active ingredients, Casein Phosphopeptide (CPP) and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), release vital minerals into mouth. This product is can restore mineral loss and produce stronger more resilient teeth.
Computer Assisted Design/Computer Assisted Manufacturing are technologies that use computer software and machinery for design and 3D fabrication. This technology can be found in many industries. We use it to create precise dental restorations that can be completed in our office in one visit. Our surgical guides are also constructed with this unit.
Not only does this technology eliminate sensitivity and discomfort that accompanies traditional impression materials, the information captured is highly accurate and detailed. This system simplifies the impression process used for a range of restorative and orthodontic procedures.
This compact device assists in the detection of cavities and cracks. It works by using a transillumination technology that makes the enamel appear transparent. We will still need routine digital x-rays in most cases, however this is another way to reduce our reliance on them.
It’s the first and only reversal agent and with it, we can reverse the local anesthetic (numbness). You’ll be feeling back to normal twice as fast.
