Dexis Digital Intraoral X-ray. The ability to see subtleties using digital radiography is crucial to diagnosis and treatment. Through a combination of advanced hardware and software technologies, our Dexis Digital X-ray delivers images that are extremely clear and highly detailed. The machine compensates for radiation variances, guarding against under- and over-exposure, so we get usable images from a wider range of exposure settings. This lessens the number of exposure-related dental X-ray retakes and reduces your overall radiation exposure.
Cerec Omnicam. This camera is used for capturing full-color, 3D video of the oral cavity. As the camera moves over the teeth, a photorealistic image is displayed in full color with great clarity. The image allows us to differentiate among different materials: natural tooth, soft tissue, amalgam, gold, etc. The camera provides excellent image capture data for creating CAD/CAM tooth restorations. We find that it is also an excellent patient education tool. While we are capturing an impression, we can also point out other current or potential issues to patients that they can see in real time.
SIROLaser. Rather than using a scalpel for many dental procedures that require an incision — for example, tissue retraction for impressions or implant recovery — we use a hand-held laser that is far more precise, makes a cleaner incision and facilitates faster healing.
GuidedSMILE Dental Implant Planning. The proprietary GuidedSMILE system allows us to plan an entire implant procedure before picking up the first instrument. The comprehensive data gleaned from the 3D cone beam scan is used to plot the surgery without any guesswork, greatly enhancing the predictability and safety of the procedure.
GuidedSMILE Surgical Implant Guides. The information that is collected during the dental implant records appointment is rendered in physical form as a surgical guide. An implant surgical guide is a chrome overlay that resembles a plastic mouthguard. It has holes in it that mark exactly where the implants are supposed to go. The holes control the depth and the angle of the drill that is used to set the implants. The guide ensures accurate placement of every implant for every patient.
Periotest Implant Testing Tool. This technology is used for testing implant stability after placement. It is electromagnetically driven and electronically controlled. This is an advancement of the traditional “impact hammer” method for determining the stability of a natural tooth.
High Quality Dental Implants. We use the best dental implants to ensure the best results. Our implants are made in America by Implant Direct and Hiossen. They are fashioned from titanium, which is extremely strong and highly biocompatible, so there is little chance of rejection. The success rate for implants is by far the best of any tooth replacement option at more than 98 percent.
