Our team wants to offer care with precision and accuracy, and also ensure your treatment experience is a comfortable and positive one. To accomplish this, our team will implement advanced treatment options, such as laser dentistry or same-day crowns. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI, dentist talks about our advanced technologies.
Digital Imaging Systems
To make a diagnosis with precision and accuracy, and to plan treatment in detail, we want to obtain clear and high-definition diagnostic images. With digital x-rays, we can use 90% less radiation and create clear images that are available instantly chairside, limiting your time in the office. No need for bitewings either! We also have intraoral cameras to obtain detailed images of the surfaces of your teeth and gums too, which again helps with a diagnosis and with treatment too. We can also transmit these images instantly to other practices and specialists as needed!
Creating Restorations in One Visit
Our team can also create crowns and bridges in only one visit! With the CEREC with Primescan system, we will prepare the smile and gather detailed images with a small wand that has a digital camera at the end. We can take images from multiple angles quickly and comfortably, and then combine them to create a 3D impression, one far more accurate than an old school physical impression. This enables our team to design the restorations and prosthetics in detail. With an onsite 3D printing system, we can then create these crowns, bridges, and even oral appliances in the same visit, so you leave with a restored smile! We can also create athletic mouthguards, and appliances to help treat TMJ disorder, bruxism, and even sleep apnea.
With dental lasers, we can conduct soft tissue procedures in one visit with precision, targeting areas to prevent damage to healthy tissues. Lasers can offer gum contouring to improve smile beauty, and also treat issues like periodontal disease to keep your smile whole. Lasers rarely require the use of anesthesia, and the area will heal quicker, with some people returning to normal routines after one 24 to 48 hours of rest. We also have the advanced VELscope imaging system to make a diagnosis of oral cancer much more accurate, catching the disease in early stages to increase the chances of a full recovery.
