1.Cone Beam CT Scanner

Just one 14 second scan provides a multitude of information allowing for exceptionally accurate examination, diagnosis, and treatment planning.

  • Cone Beam CT, or CBCT, is used routinely for treatment planning Dental implants.  It provides us with the location of critical anatomic structures such as nerves and sinuses.  It also allows us to study the size, shape, and quality of the bone into which the implant is being placed.
  • We also use our CBCT to evaluate certain patients prior to Oral and maxillofacial surgery.  In some instances it is necessary to determine the relationship between tooth roots and the mandibular nerve.
  • Another great benefit of our in office CBCT is the evaluation of Oral and maxillofacial pathology.  Just one scan allows us to localize and characterize lesions throughout the jaws. 
 

2.CEREC Crowns in One Visit

CEREC is a method of CAD/CAM chairside dentistry that allows us to fabricate a dental crown in a single visit eliminating the need for a temporary crown and a second visit.  This means that you will be leaving with your new permanent crown bonded into place after just one appointment!

With our CEREC we use the finest materials based on your individual needs.  Whether it is an aesthetic area in the anterior or a second molar in need of plenty of strength, we have the right  restorative material for you.
This new technology eliminates the need for time consuming, goopy impression materials.  The Omnicam Scanner allows for a faster, more comfortable, and more accurate impressions.

 

3.Digital Xrays

Dental Xrays are essential tools to allow the dentist to comprehensively examine the patient.  They are used in the evaluation and detection of dental decay, periodontal disease, abscesses, tumors, developmental abnormalities and problems within the teeth.  Digital xrays allow for an even more accurate exam and diagnosis.  This allows us to detect and treat dental problems at an early stage, which can save time, money, and teeth!

4.  Guided Surgery

Using our Cone Beam CT with our CEREC Omnicam optical scanner allows us to virtually plan exactly where we want our implant placed based on the location of our final restoration.  From this information we have a surgical guide fabricated which will guide the implant to within fractions of a millimeter of the initial plan.  This allows for a safer, more accurate and more predictable outcome in less time and often with less discomfort than traditional, free hand placement.  In many instances we are able to perform the placement without the need for an incision.
