We use the latest dental technologies and equipment in our Advanced Dental Center. Dental innovations and technology have significantly improved dental care’s comfort and overall experience. Many modern dental treatments are minimally invasive, meaning they involve less removal of healthy tooth structure. This results in less discomfort during and after the procedure. These dental innovations and technologies have revolutionized the dental field, making dental care more comfortable and less intimidating for patients. They can now expect more efficient, less painful, and highly personalized dental treatments, ultimately improving their overall comfort and satisfaction with their dental care experiences.
Let us tell you about some innovations for your comfort:
3D Scan. Three-dimensional (3D) scanning technology has revolutionized dentistry by offering numerous benefits and innovations. 3D scanning, also known as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in dental applications, is a non-invasive imaging technique that provides detailed, three-dimensional views of a patient's oral and maxillofacial structures. We use this digital scan for people who need to get implants. We can precisely measure the amount of the bone and the thickness. We use ultra-low radiation doses. Patient safety is the priority. Digital X-rays and 3D imaging technologies provide a more accurate and comfortable diagnostic process with lower radiation exposure and quicker results. 3D scans provide highly detailed and precise images of the teeth, jaws, bone structures, and soft tissues, enabling more exact diagnoses of dental and oral conditions. The 3D scan helps us identify dental and oral health issues earlier, which may lead to more effective and less invasive treatment options.
The CEREC. This system allows us to prepare and scan the tooth and do one-day crowns, inlays, and onlays. One of the most remarkable features of CEREC is its ability to design, fabricate, and place restorations in a single dental appointment. Our patients get crowns on the same day. CEREC utilizes 3D imaging computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technologies to create restorations precisely. This minimizes the risk of errors and ensures a proper fit and function. CEREC restorations are often made from tooth-colored ceramic materials that closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth. This provides a natural and aesthetically pleasing result. CEREC restorations require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to traditional restorations. This preservation of natural tooth material enhances the longevity and strength of the tooth. CEREC eliminates the need for additional appointments and temporary restorations, saving both time and costs for both the dentist and the patient. CEREC allows patients to receive dental restorations without the discomfort and inconvenience of temporary crowns and multiple appointments. This leads to a more comfortable and positive dental experience.
Dental Laser. We use numerous benefits that intraoral laser represents. It allows precise tissue removal and ablation, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissues. This precision makes the laser ideal for minimally invasive procedures. The use of lasers often results in less pain, swelling, and discomfort for patients compared to traditional dental tools and techniques. Lasers promote faster healing by sealing blood vessels and nerve endings while treating tissues, reducing the risk of postoperative complications. Lasers can effectively remove bacteria and infected tissues in periodontal pockets, aiding gum disease treatment and promoting periodontal health. The intraoral laser improves the overall patient experience by reducing anxiety, discomfort, and the need for anesthesia in some cases.
