Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ 3D Scanner

The current emerging standard of care in dentistry and dental implantology is the use of three dimensional x-ray studies. The 3-D images allow the doctor to collect the needed and highly valuable diagnostic information to best plan and deliver dental and surgical care. The 3D CBCT imaging system can be used for an array of applications, including: endodontics, implantology, surgery, fracture and orthodontics and TMJ assessment. The 3D images accurately show the patient’s anatomy, evaluates bone volume and quality. Extraordinary details are obtained at low exposure levels. A typical scan takes only 20 seconds.

The patient benefits from less radiation as well as the comfortable, open environment. Additionally, the doctor can share a visual diagnosis with patients, making them more comfortable with their treatment plan and actively participate in their care.

3M™ True Definition Scanner – Impressionless Scanning

The 3M™ True Definition Scanner makes it possible to create digital impressions for many dental procedures in just a couple of minutes, without the need for messy putties or the discomfort associated with other impression techniques.

Digital impressions are faster because they take less chair time - no waiting for materials used for impressions to set and no retakes needed to achieve the accuracy needed. 3M™ True Definition Scanner is more accurate from the start.

Computer Guided Implant Surgery

We use state-of-the-art technology including Computer Guided Implant Surgery to ensure the optimum results in patient care.
In the past radiographic images used to place implants were two dimensional providing a reasonable estimate of bone height. Often bone width was not determined until the bone was exposed during surgery sometimes resulting in compromised placement of the implant.

Computer Guided Implant Surgery gives very detailed 3-D visualizations and coupled with the appropriate software allows us to place implants with a level of precision that was unattainable several years ago. In addition, the surgical procedures can often be accomplished in a much more conservative procedure which involves greatly reduced discomfort, less treatment time and a more accurate final outcome.

Computer Guided Implant placement is the safest and most precise way to place dental implants.

ORAL3D Printer

ORAL3D enables us to create a three-dimensional model of our patients mouths through the use of Cone Beam Imaging! With this technology our patients can physically visualize hard and soft tissues defects and our surgeons can carefully plan and prepare surgeries with more precision and comfort.

Low Dose Digital X-Rays

Dental x-rays (Radiographs) are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Digital Radiography is a type of X-ray imaging that uses digital X-ray sensors to replace traditional photographic X-ray film, producing enhanced computer images of teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. This allows the doctors to get a much better view of your teeth and any potential dental conditions. The digital imaging software obtains a number of different views of your teeth to gain the best understanding of your situation and develop the most appropriate course of management.

Digital sensors are more responsive than film so that much less radiation is required to produce a digital image.

The Laser Scanner Provides Early Detection of Cavities

Through technology, our patients can work together with our dentists to have healthy gums and beautiful teeth. With the intra-oral camera, you can see for yourself what work needs to be done on what teeth. This amazing miniature video camera produces clear and accurate pictures of all your teeth. You will enjoy making informed decisions together with our doctors, creating a bond of teamwork.

Ultrasonic Scaling

The Cavitron® Ultrasonic Scaler is a dental hygiene tool that uses high frequency sound waves to disinfect and clean teeth. The state of the art instrument has proven to be a very successful tool in removing tartar from both above and below the gumline. Instead of scaling the teeth with bulky hand scalers, the Cavitron® Ultrasonic Scaler uses oscillating sound waves to gently vibrate the tartar away from your teeth. It is so gentle that it can even be used for deep cleaning and gum therapy without the need for anesthesia. It is a safe effective and painless alternative to traditional cleaning methods.

Comfort Control™ Syringe PAIN-FREE INJECTIONS

Needle fears keep many people away from the dentist. Postponing dental procedures because of these fears is common, but ultimately results in worsening problems and other serious oral health concerns. The Comfort Control Syringe is a pain free alternative to traditional anesthetic needles and syringes. It lets us administer injections with little or no discomfort to our patients, since the flow and volume of anesthetic are delivered slowly, below the pain threshold. The system even places a drop of anesthetic at the site of injection, prior to needle insertion, preparing an anesthetic pathway.

This electronic pre-programmed anesthetic delivery device uses a two-stage delivery rate. The injection begins at an extremely slow rate to counter the initial pain usually associated with an injection. A digital panel displays the rate, elapsed time and amount of anesthetic delivered.

Computerized Shade Matching

VITA Shade Guide
The VITA shade guide serves to accurately determine tooth shade. The precision color matching results in the most natural restoration.

VITA offers:
• Fast and reliable tooth shade determination
• Precise and complete communication of the correct tooth shade
• Two established shade systems for all your needs – from standard dental prosthetics to highly esthetic restorations

CariVu™ Caries Detection

CariVu™ caries detection device uses patented transillumination technology that makes enamel appear transparent allowing the dentist to see through the tooth, exposing its structure and the development of any carious lesions. Although images read like familiar X-ray images, CariVu™ uses non-ionizing radiation which is ideal for children, pregnant women and patients who are X‑ray averse.

The Wand

Our patients routinely comment on how painless and gentle their treatments. This is in no small part due to “The Wand” painless injection system. In most cases the pain associated with injections comes from the flow of the anesthetic into the body, as opposed to the insertion of the needle itself. The Wand is a computer-controlled anesthetic distribution system that is designed to prevent any pain at all. It evenly flows into the system so that only the exact part of the mouth being treated is numbed, and it does it with such accuracy that it is in fact painless.

iTero® Element™ Digital Scanner – Impressionless Scanning

The iTero® Element™ makes it possible to create digital impressions for orthodontic procedures such as Invisalign®, crowns and implant procedures in just a couple of minutes, without the need for messy putties or the discomfort associated with other impression techniques.

The iTero scanner allows the dentist to take a digital impression—a highly accurate, digital 3D image of the individual characteristics of your tooth surfaces and gum tissue. The iTero scanner is all about keeping you comfortable while delivering precise imagery quickly and without the putty-filled impression tray that makes you gag! The built-in simulator allows us create a simulation of what your teeth may look like in a straighter, corrected position so youcan see you how orthodontic treatment can improve your smile, before starting treatment!

Intra-Oral Camera Lets You See for Yourself

Through technology, our patients can work together with our dentists to have healthy gums and beautiful teeth. With the intra-oral camera, you can see for yourself what work needs to be done on what teeth. This amazing miniature video camera produces clear and accurate pictures of all your teeth. You will enjoy making informed decisions together with our doctors, creating a bond of teamwork.

Formlab 3D Printed Surgical Guides

Our Planning Software allows us to plan implant cases based on Cone Beam or CT data and to obtain precise drilling templates for use during implant insertion. It allows us to determine the optimal implant position, taking the existing bone as well as the planned prosthetical position into account.

The next step is to export the digital model into our in-house Formlab 3D desktop printer, which instantly prepares it for printing. Recent developments in 3D printing technology, software development and computing power allows us to create a 3D high resolution printed guide which we use for precise implant placement.

Biofilm Management with Airflow

Biofilm Management with Airflow Polishing Hygiene and Cleaning Treatment (by Hu-Friedy) is a hygiene treatment that effectively removes stains on the front and back of teeth. The procedure works by using a fine jet of compressed air, water and fine powder particles to remove staining caused by coffee, tea, red wine, tobacco and some mouthwashes. The treatment is given in the least invasive way, with the highest level of comfort, safety and efficiency.

Laser Dentistry

Laser Dentistry offers you the opportunity to have a safe, anxiety free dental experience, without drills and scalpels, and in most cases, without anesthesia. The laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with in surgical and dental procedures.

Laser Dentistry uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures – without the heat, vibration and pressure associated with the dental drill. The laser beam sterilizes the affected area and seals off blood vessels, which minimizes the chance of infection or bleeding. Patients are also much more comfortable during and after treatment with laser therapy

DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Detection

DIAGNOdent is an advanced laser technology that helps us find tooth decay more accurately and reliably in its earliest stages, before it causes more widespread damage. We use it along with visual examination, dental explorers, and x-rays. DIAGNOdent helps us locate decay that’s hidden inside the tooth where visual examination, explorers, and x-rays can’t find it. The DIAGNOdent hand piece scans your teeth with harmless pulses of laser light. When the laser reaches decay under the surface of the tooth, the decay emits a fluorescent light. This fluorescent light bounces back to the sensor, and is translated into an audible signal and a digital readout. In general, the higher the number, the greater the amount of decay in the tooth.

Magnification Loupes

A Magnification Loupes, a simple, small magnification device used to see small details more closely, allows the dentist to see fine details that would go unnoticed to the naked eye. A better and enlarged view of the treatment site automatically results in more precise dental work. Dentists are better able to see the shapes that they are carving or preparing in the natural teeth as well as in the final restorations which they are providing for their patients. Perhaps even more importantly, dentists are better able to make more accurate and complete diagnoses of what is occurring in each patient’s mouth.

Dental Microscope

The Seiler dental microscope greatly improves the dentist’s ability to see even the tiniest details inside a patient's tooth. It magnifies vision up to 25 times that of the naked eye and is useful in both diagnosis and treatment.

It is an invaluable tool in endodontic treatment. The root canal procedure takes place in a very small area of the tooth where precise accuracy is necessary to navigate though the intricate roots and canals. Missed canals often mean unresolved infections, which may mean a repeat of the procedure.

Piezo® Ultrasonic Surgical Drill

The Piezosurgery® Drill is a new instrument that can be used for bone surgery in a variety of dental surgical specialties. Using an ultrasonic vibrating tip and water rather than a powerful rotating drill, the Piezosurgery® unit is much safer, less traumatic, causes little to no bleeding, and greatly accelerates healing times.

The dental piezotome is an ultrasonic generator that greatly aids in pre-implants, wisdom teeth extraction, and sinus lift procedures. Instead of using a dental drill that cuts soft tissue and anything in its path, the piezotome is extremely precise and only cuts bone.

Rotary Endodontics

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

Rotary Endodontics is the procedure in which a power driven instrument is used for root canal treatments. The use of power driven instruments allows for more accurate cleaning and shaping of your root canal, thus allowing it to be filled easier and with more predictable results. This technology also dramatically reduces post-operative sensitivity, time spent in the dental chair and discomfort compared to conventional endodontic treatment.

DENTALVIBE® PAIN-FREE INJECTIONS

Needle fears keep many people away from the dentist. Postponing dental procedures because of these fears is common, but ultimately results in worsening problems and other serious oral health concerns. 95% of the patients that have experienced the DentalVibe Injection Comfort System say that it has changed their view on going to the dentist.

The DentalVibe applies a light vibration to the tissues around the injection site while anesthesia injections are administered. Research has shown that when vibration and injection sensations are occurring simultaneously, the vibration feeling reaches the brain first and essentially blocks the feeling of the injection from being perceived by the brain. Children and adults no longer have to be afraid of the needle.

Early Detection for Oral Cancer

It is a shocking statistic that one American dies each hour because of oral cancer. This mortality rate has not changed in 40 years! But the upside is that when oral cancer is detected in its early stages, 90% of these patients can be cured.

We have the VELscope™ available for our patients for screening and early detection of this life-threatening problem. It is an FDA-approved specially designed light. Immediately, any unusual tissue can be identified. This is a quick, easy, and painless exam that could save your life!
