Precision in Practice

Advanced technology plays a pivotal role in achieving precise and accurate results in dental procedures. From 3D imaging and computer-guided planning to custom surgical guides, these technological innovations enable our dentists to plan and execute treatment plans with unparalleled precision. By utilizing technology, we can navigate complex oral structures, optimize implant placement, and ultimately enhance patient outcomes confidently and accurately.

Digital Technology That Allows You To See Your Smile Before Your Treatment

Advanced technology to enhance your smile

A Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scanner is a cutting-edge imaging device that captures detailed three-dimensional images of a patient’s oral and maxillofacial structures. This technology offers superior visualization of dental anatomy, allowing our dentists to accurately assess bone density, tooth positioning, and nerve pathways.

The CBCT scanner provides invaluable insights for treatment planning, particularly in complex cases such as dental implant placement and orthodontic treatment. Its ability to produce high-resolution images in a single scan enhances diagnostic capabilities and facilitates precise and tailored treatment approaches for optimal patient outcomes.

Digital X-rays are a modern advancement in dental imaging technology, offering several advantages over traditional film X-rays. They produce highly detailed images of the teeth, gums, and jawbone with minimal radiation exposure to the patient.

The digital format allows for instant viewing and manipulation of images, enabling dentists to zoom in, enhance details, and quickly share results with patients. Digital X-rays are environmentally friendly, eliminating the need for chemical processing and reducing waste in dental practices.

The CEREC machine revolutionizes dental crown procedures by offering in-house fabrication and same-day crown placements. This advanced technology utilizes computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create custom-fit crowns in the dental office.

You benefit from the convenience of having your crowns designed, milled, and placed during a single visit, eliminating the need for multiple appointments and temporary crowns. The CEREC system ensures precise and aesthetically pleasing results, restoring both function and appearance to your smile efficiently and effectively.

Intraoral scanners represent a significant advancement in dental technology, as they eliminate the need for messy and uncomfortable traditional impressions. These handheld devices accurately capture highly detailed 3D images of the patient’s teeth and oral structures.

Intraoral scanners streamline the treatment process and enhance patient comfort by providing instant digital impressions. Dentists can efficiently design and fabricate restorations such as crowns, bridges, and aligners based on these precise digital scans, ultimately improving treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction.

The Periolase laser is a state-of-the-art tool utilized in periodontal therapy to treat gum disease effectively. This advanced laser technology targets and eliminates bacteria and infected tissue while preserving healthy gum tissue.

The Periolase laser also stimulates tissue regeneration and promotes gum attachment to the tooth surface, aiding in healing. With its precision and minimally invasive nature, the Periolase laser offers patients a comfortable and efficient alternative to traditional gum surgery for improved periodontal health.

The 3D printer has revolutionized the production of dental temporaries, offering unparalleled precision and efficiency. Utilizing digital scans, this advanced technology creates custom-fit temporary restorations that closely mimic the shape and contour of your natural teeth.

With its rapid prototyping capabilities, the 3D printer allows for same-day fabrication of temporaries, reducing chair time and enhancing patient convenience. Our dentists can deliver high-quality temporary restorations that provide aesthetics and function and promote optimal healing and treatment outcomes.

Guided implant surgery utilizes advanced technology to meticulously plan and execute dental implant procedures with unmatched precision. Through 3D imaging and computer-guided planning software, our dentists can create a detailed virtual model of your jaw structure and plan the optimal placement of implants.

Customized surgical guides are then fabricated to ensure precise execution of the treatment plan during surgery, minimizing the margin for error. This innovative approach to implant surgery enhances treatment outcomes, reduces surgical time, and promotes faster healing.
