How Dental Technology Benefits You
Making an Easier, More Comfortable Dental Visit
Modern dentistry is always developing ways to make your visits faster, easier, more comfortable, and better for the world around us. The latest advances allow for earlier, less-invasive treatment, which means faster healing times and greater precision for dental procedures. And the results can be outstanding.
Goodbye Goopy Impressions
With the Cadent iTero™ digital impression system, your dentist takes a highly accurate digital impression for your Invisalign™ clear aligners, sleep appliances, and TMJ appliances, completely eliminating the uncomfortable tray and putty impression. What’s more, iTero technology all but guarantees a perfect fit for your aligners or appliance, so you spend less time at the dentist’s office and more time enjoying your new smile.
The STA System™ with The Wand™
The first computer-controlled local anesthetic system. Just one injection at a single tooth with The Wand is all that’s needed to numb an area. It lets the dentist precisely anesthetize a single tooth in only one to two minutes, rather than administering an anesthetic that numbs your entire lip. This is a more accurate and safer delivery of anesthesia. The STA works immediately, whereas the typical anesthetic can take 8-12 minutes, and lasts as long as traditional anesthesia. This technology has been clinically proven to provide a pain-free injection.
75% Reduction in Radiation
Introducing digital X-rays, available at our practice. With this technology, an image is taken of your mouth with a digital sensor and downloaded into our computer, where it is immediately available. We can also view your entire mouth in one shot, including the upper and lower jaws, with panoramic digital X-rays. These methods result in 75% less radiation than conventional X-rays. No more waiting for images to develop and no more chemical waste to pollute the environment.
Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the Team
The intra-oral camera is an amazing device. It is a miniature video camera that displays a close-up picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision. You’ll love how this works.
Think of this as a three-dimensional X-ray that is far more accurate than traditional X-rays, takes much less time, and does all this with much less radiation exposure.
A great advantage of using ultra cone beam images when diagnosing patients and evaluating treatment options is the dentist’s ability to clearly see the patient’s anatomy in 3-D, instead of flat, two-dimensional images. This leads to much greater accuracy for all dental treatment, especially implant placement and any oral surgeries.
