Technological advancements are a current fact of life in modern dentistry. Adding new equipment and techniques are considered according to the scientific literature and acquired based on our patients’ needs.
Spectra system by Air Technique (http://www.airtechniques.com/product/camx-spectra-caries-detection-aid-2/) helps us diagnose the depths of possible decay without using the drill.
Intraoral cameras have been our patients’ favorites since we opened our doors 20 years ago.
Soft Tissue Laser by Ivoclar (http://www.ivoclarvivadent.us/powerofone/media/files/navigator_brochure_2.pdf) helps us treat many challenging gum disease situations without surgery, needles or pain.
For the anxious patient and especially for children the addition of nitrous oxide, aka laughing gas, is used on a daily basis with rewarding patient feedback.
Screening for TMJ problems is done with the use of Bioresearch equipment (www.bioresearchinc.com). Joint Vibration analysis, Jaw Tracker and Electromyography, thus giving us characteristic numerical values for different ailments.
Our mindful efforts to keep radiation to an absolute minimum was rewarded by the introduction of digital x-ray systems (www.dexis.com) that provide enhanced software imaging while using minimal radiation for our own and our patient’s safety.
We have tomographic radiology for specific TMJ/orofacial pain/maxillofacial growth identification, and panoramic and cephalometric X-rays for our orthodontic patients.
To continue with this biologically friendly trend in orthodontic treatments, we so often use low-friction braces (www.damonbraces.com) with fantastic results in unravelling and aligning crowded dentition without having to lose teeth.
To screen patients for snoring and sleep apnea we provide our patients with Braebon equipment (www.braebon.com/products/medibyte) to test their sleep in the comfort of their homes.
