Our office uses modern, state-of-the-art technology to enhance
patient comfort and to help you get the smile you deserve!
OralCDx represents a breakthrough in oral cancer detection,
a test that will allow you and your dentist to improve the
prognosis of a disease that has remained unchanged for the
last 50 years.
OralCDx is the first computerized brush biopsy system. It
allows dentists to quickly, painlessly and reliably detect
oral cancer in its earliest, most easily treatable stage.
Originally developed as part of the Star Wars
missile defense program, the OralCDx computer system includes
a neural network-based image processing system specifically
adapted to detect abnormalities unique to oral brush biopsy
Computer Digital Radiography (CDR)
can now be taken using sensors that transmit the image
directly into a computer monitor. This larger image
helps the patient understand the doctor's explanations
more easily and enables the doctor to "zoom in"
on a specific area of the tooth. An important advantage
to this new technology is that it reduces the amount
of radiation by 90%. Digital x-rays are also faster.
The digital image only takes a minute or two to appear
in the monitor. In addition, this new technology is
friendly to the environment since no chemicals are needed
for developing the image.
Computer Controlled Injections - The WAND
know that some patients get more nervous than others do
at the mere sight of a needle and syringe. That's why this
office now performs anesthetic injections with a revolutionary
system called The WAND.
The source of discomfort for most injections, however,
isn't the needle, it's the flow of the anesthetic into your
tissue. The WAND delivers the anesthetic at an optimal
flow rate for a comfortable injection.
The microprocessor inside The WAND automatically
ensures a steady flow rate regardless of tissue density.
Constant, slow flow is one key to virtually pain-free injections.
The computer provides a flow of anesthetic directly ahead
of the needle. This creates a pathway of anesthesia so you
hardly feel the needle at all.
The WAND allows injections that do not numb the lips,
face and muscles of expression. Whether injections make
you nervous or not, The WAND helps us provide a more
effective anesthetic delivery and the onset of anesthesia
is often faster. You're more comfortable throughout the
procedure, and we may be able to use new techniques so you
won't experience the lingering numbness of your tongue,
lips and face.
The DIAGNOdent is a new high tech laser system that
aids in early diagnosis of cavities in the complex
anatomy of the chewing surfaces of teeth. It utilizes
laser light of a defined wavelength to help detect
and quantify demineralized tooth substances without
||Our intraoral camera uses a tiny fiber-optic
wand to easily take vivid photographs of the inside
of your mouth. This allows us to let you see what we
Air Abrasion is a gentle spray of an air and powder
that gently sprays away tooth decay. There is no heat,
vibration or sound, like there is from a drill. The
procedure is relatively painless, therefore not always
requiring an injection. Air abrasion is a very precise
technology and usually removes less tooth structure
for a filling than a drill would.
MicroDentistry means finding decay
as early as possible so that treatment can be done with
minimal removal of natural tooth structure. Restorations
(fillings) are the smallest possible,
esthetically pleasing, and long-lasting.
Automated Charting Software (Florida Probe)
|This system connects a computer database
to a special probe so we can quickly, easily, and accurately
record individual measurements when performing a periodontal
||Our treatment rooms are equipped with
state-of-the-art patient-education DVD systems. If you
are uncertain about a particular procedure, we will
be happy to play the DVD video segment for you.
New technology in veneer fabrication
allows us to perform dazzling transformations with
minimal surface preparation.
||Although white fillings have been around
for a long time, the new materials can now be used in
a wider range of applications allowing you to keep your
smile as white as it can be!
