Intraoral Cameras

Intraoral cameras are equipped with a small camera that captures high-resolution images of your teeth and gums and projects them onto a nearby screen. This technological advancement allows our team to not only generate higher quality scans but also provide our patients with real-time footage of exactly what we see when examining the inside of your mouth. As a result, patients become more informed about their oral health and can see for themselves the importance of treatment.

All-Digital X-Rays

For decades, dentists have used X-rays as a diagnostic tool when attempting to pinpoint problem areas within a patient’s smile. However, traditional radiographs required harsh chemicals to develop, and endless hours spent in a darkroom. Not to mention the high levels of radiation emitted. Fortunately, times have changed, and we now use all-digital X-rays. Emitting much less radiation and capturing clearer images than before, it takes only seconds to complete, and the scans can be immediately uploaded to our system. This process makes it easier to store, send, and display when treating a patient.

3D Cone Beam Imaging

Digital X-rays are important diagnostic tools; however, when certain procedures are required, a more detailed look at a person’s oral and facial structures is required. This is where our 3D Cone Beam Imaging system comes in. With a 360-degree rotating arm, the device takes hundreds of photos, providing our team with high-resolution images of a patient’s teeth, gums, bones, tissues, nerves, and blood vessels. This makes the process of dental implant or root canal treatment planning much easier and smoother.

Digital Impression System

If you dread having to sink your teeth into cold, messy dental putty, there’s no longer a need to worry. Traditional impression systems are now being replaced with a digital kind. Using a handheld wand, our team can quickly scan a patient’s smile, while the images form to create a 3D model on a nearby computer screen. Allowing Dr. Khorasani to make any necessary adjustments, the three-dimensional image can then be sent to lab technicians for restoration creation.

Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry

When requiring a procedure that involves the soft oral tissues inside the mouth, our team can incorporate the use of a soft tissue laser. Instead of regular scalpels and sutures that require long recovery times, laser dentistry makes it easier and less cumbersome. Because of the concentrated beam of light, the laser cauterizes as it moves, minimizing bleeding and swelling while also sterilizing the area and reducing the chances of infection. By using laser dental techniques, patients can prepare for a more comfortable experience and minimal recovery time.
