Technology Used In Interventions
Technology influences every type of treatment provided in our office, from preventive care to restorations or cosmetic enhancements. They may improve treatment efficiency, patient comfort, aesthetic outcomes, or all of the above. In some cases, we are able to provide minor tooth movements to better align teeth. We also partner with local orthodontists for more advanced orthodontic needs. Here are just a few examples of the types of technology featured at our practice:
We use these because they are quieter and more efficient.
Ultrasonic cleaners help us to provide prophylaxis (dental cleaning) in a shorter session, especially for patients who have significant tartar accumulation.
Rotary endodontic handpiece:
Rotary endodontic instruments allow us to provide root canal therapy with minimal discomfort for patients. Many patients report that the sensation associated with a root canal is similar to having a cavity filled.
In house fabrication of mouthguard appliances:
Mouthguards worn during sports or while asleep are valuable tools for preventing damage to your teeth.
The latest tooth-colored composite materials used in tooth restorations are more attractive and safer, eliminating potentially toxic mercury from the mix and allowing the dentist to keep more healthy tooth material intact when placing the filling.
Zoom advance power in office whitening:
We use UV light to activate the bleaching agents used in our teeth whitening treatment, which makes it achieve its full effect in about an hour.
