DEXIS Digital Sensor X-ray
Using the most advanced dental high-end technology is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques. Because our practice is dedicated to providing you with the fastest, safest, and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize DEXIS advanced digital X-ray technology in our office.
Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to give fast results, save time, provide high resolution dental photos, and less exposure to radiation. DEXIS allows our practice to deliver unparalleled radiographs that offer clear, sharp, and highly detailed x-rays to results in the most reliable results.
We have recently added the ProFace 3D Imaging Machine to our office, which brings new possibilities for treatment planning and maximizes the safety of our imaging procedures. This unit complies with the best practices in dentistry by following the American Dental Association’s ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) radiation principle to minimize the effective radiation dose to our patients. The unique features of this unit allow us to choose what area of the teeth and facial anatomy we need to capture, which significantly reduces any unnecessary exposure. Our staff can also adjust the unit’s settings, allowing us to capture only the details we need. We will be using this unit with state-of-the-art software applications for the best possible care using the latest technology. Planmeca technology provides data for:
- Dental implants
- Wisdom teeth extractions
- TMJ treatment
- Airway assessments and sleep apnea
- Full facial and jaw 3D images
CEREC® and Omnicam
We are your local CEREC dentist for single-visit tooth restorations. CEREC is a technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to the doctor’s office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful, all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free, and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.
The CEREC Process
During your appointment, you and your doctor will discuss the details of the procedure and your doctor will answer any questions you may have. Your doctor will then apply a thin layer of reflective powder onto your tooth and will use a special 3D imaging camera (Omnicam) to take a photo of your tooth. Using CEREC’s proprietary software, your restoration will be designed according to your tooth’s appropriate form and function. Then, CEREC will use diamond burs to create your restoration out of a piece of ceramic. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.
