Every important new tool we've incorporated into our practice has been to improve safety, comfort, and diagnostic capability for our patients. Here are some of the new technology we use today in our office:
As a tool that we have been using for over five years is contacting patients via email, whether scheduling, reminding and answering any dental question. So feel free to contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org . To handle an appointment you can email us at email@example.com. For billing, use firstname.lastname@example.org and to ask the doctor any questions you can email them at email@example.com.
With this system, you'll receive an e-mail message few days before your appointment reminding you of the date and time of your next visit.. If there are any questions about your appointment you can simply respond by e-mail and let us know and you can CONFIRM your appointment at the same time.
Digital Radiography (Dexis System) digital is a new X-Ray technology that eliminates film. When you have X-Rays taken in our office with the award winning DEXIS system, you won't have to wait for X-Ray film to be developed. You'll immediately see a digital X-Ray image on a large-screen computer, very near the chair you're sitting in. There's no waiting for film to be developed, so you don't waste your time. Digital radiography exposes you to up to 90 percent less radiation.
DIAGNOdent by Kavo is a revolutionary laser-based diagnostic tool that allows us to find cavities, that might otherwise be missed using normal diagnostic tools. DIAGNOdent is especially useful in identifying hidden caries that have begun to form underneath the enamel surface but are not yet developed enough to show up even on our powerful digital X-Ray system.
Waterlase laser system, allows us to treat gum tissue as well as tooth surfaces without using any hand pieces or scalpels. This ADA approved laser can also allow us to re-contour gum tissue for aesthetic treatments.
Diode laser, is our other laser which is unique to gum tissue and treatment of deep pockets. This laser allows us to lower the pocket depth without use of any surgical treatment on same cases.
INVISALIGN or invisible braces: this new technique which our office is a preferred provider for allows us to move teeth for better alignment and creating aesthetic results without having the metal brackets. It allows the patient to take them out when eating or brushing.
Invisalign is a remarkable treatment option for correcting misaligned teeth. Aligners are unlike traditional braces because they're
- Invisible: Their clear custom fit molding makes it almost undetectable so your appearance is not affected
- Removable: Makes it easier to keep a good oral hygiene and remove it to eat
- Comfortable: Does not irritate cheek or gum
- Convenient: Does not get in the way of living and enjoying life
