Digital X-Rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A Digital X-Ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.

CEREC is an advanced dental technology that is utilized for the restoration of decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. CEREC can create full crowns, inlays, on lays, and veneers. The CEREC machine crafts a restoration in a matter of minutes. CEREC restorations are made of compressed porcelain. It is for this reason that they are stronger than laboratory restorations, which are layered porcelain. The most beneficial feature of receiving a CEREC restoration is that it is accomplished in one visit. In addition to the benefit of a one visit restoration, there is no uncomfortable impression material to bite on or temporary to wear.
There are basically two types of hand pieces, air-driven and electric. Electric hand pieces are much stronger than Air-driven due to the fact that a motor is spinning the bur as opposed to air. This allows the doctor to remove decay at a faster pace. This will cut down on the time it takes to complete a procedure.
The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to just a few years ago. The camera gives us the ability to view the entire mouth on a monitor so that we can get a closer look at any potential issues or problems that may arise. In addition, the patient will have the ability to see for themselves first hand the same images we are seeing. These digital images are also excellent for gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.
ViziLite Plus with TBlue is the leading oral cancer screening system that was developed to help oral healthcare professionals identify, evaluate, monitor and mark abnormal oral lesions suspicious for pathology including precancerous cells and cancer that may be difficult to see during a regular visual exam.Advantages:
- NO FALSE NEGATIVE OUTCOMES meaning ViziLite Plus with TBlue identifies every lesion that has precancerous cells or cancer
- SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCING the number of false positive lesions identified during standard visual examinations – limiting the number of biopsies that may have normally been performed.
Endodontics & Rotary Endodontics
Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal treatment, is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often due to the fact that they are infected and the tooth is causing pain.
Rotary Endodontics is a way of performing the root canal utilizing a specific type of hand piece. This tool often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to perform the process with greater ease.

Cone beam CT is a tomographic scanning technology that can scan and acquire a specified volume of the patient head and generate a 3D data set at much lower radiation doses than their medical CT counterparts. In effect, Cone Beam CT represents the latest generation in medical imaging scanning machines ascending from conventional x-ray to panoramic and cephalometric x-ray to medical spiral CT. It provides numerous advantages over the other imaging modalities in favor for its accuracy, speed and safety.
Above all, its an economical and cost effective system that can supplant to a huge extent the existing modalities to be the standard of healthcare. Cone Beam CT scanners have been employed in clinical practice for several years till now and mostly it is used for diagnosis and treatment planning in diverse dental specialties such maxillofacial surgery, implant ology and oral pathology.
