What is it?
Using the latest digital restorative technologies, this allows dentists to produce an accurate crown without a model by using a 3D scanner. Digital Impressions are more comfortable for patients than traditional impressions. In addition to comfort, scans can be immediately viewed by the dentist before sent over to labs, which makes for a quick and highly efficient process.
iTero is a ‘real time’ leading 3D scanning system used to produce digital impressions. This non-invasive system is comfortable and convenient for patients but also allows dentists to transmit images of patient’s teeth for processing in a matter of minutes.
X-Rays have now become more comfortable and easy with this high quality, durable, and safe technology! The great thing about this is that it makes diagnosing oral abnormalities quick and easy! It is also more comfortable for our patients, as there are motorized adjustments for height, forehead, and temple supports.
Through this atest technology, digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. When using digital radiographs, the process becomes much quicker because chemical processing is not needed. This technology also allows the dentist to digitally transfer images onto a monitor and enhance them, which gives a closer and more thorough view.
Due to Fluoridation, Caries, also known as tooth decay or cavities, can also be hidden down inside the teeth, rather than on the surface. The problem with this is that it becomes more difficult to diagnose a tooth when the problem is on the inside and not the outside. The Diagnodent laser allows dentists to detect these sub-surface Caries more effectively. Patients benefit from this technology because it allows for minimally invasive treatments without unnecessary preparation, avoids excavation of suspect teeth, and is extremely accurate.
Oral cancer screening has never been easier than with Velscope technology. This technology can also detect many other oral abnormalities such as, viral, fungal, bacterial infections, inflammation, squamous papillomas, and salivary gland tumors. Early detection of these oral issues is important because it allows for earlier treatment and better results.
