At our practice, we use only the latest and greatest in dental technology available on the market. We view our technology as the best investment we can make, with the goal of providing the most optimal patient treatment outcomes.
CAD/CAM Dentistry is the latest advancement in dental technology. It is using computer-aided design and manufacturing to make restorations such as crowns, inlays, veneers and dental implant crowns. Dental software aids the dentist by taking image scans, and acting as a digital impression. Hereby gathered data creates a 3D replacement part for the missing areas in the mouth – i.e. a virtual restoration. This means quick and accurate insertion, using custom fit medical-grade titanium or zirconia abutments. This process guarantees the best possible integration with the implant fixture.
The newest dental technology in implant placement planning is Simplant. Implants are placed using Digital Imaging Software that gives us 3D digital radio graphs. This displays all the details in your mouth and establishes a detailed surgical guide with no room for error. Simplant is the most secure, painless and safe route for achieving implant replacement of missing teeth.
Intraoral (in the mouth) cameras are small and take pictures at 10x magnification. This not only helps with the diagnosis but allows our patients to see the problem areas in the mouth.
The use of dental X-rays in dentistry is crucial to the diagnosis of dental conditions and disease. Using digital X-ray dental technology in our Manhattan clinic allows us to have remarkable high-definition image quality.
Another benefit for the patient is 80% less radiation compared to a conventional film X-ray. Essentially you get more radiation sitting at the beach for a day then you do from 1 digital dental X-ray.
Digital X-rays allow us to help you faster and catch conditions before they actually start developing.
We use the latest VELscope VX technology to discover abnormalities in the oral mucosa and enhance visualizations of oral mucosal abnormalities, such as oral cancer or pre-malignant dysplasia.
The VELscope® VX handpiece emits a safe, visible blue light into the oral cavity, which excites the oral tissue and causes it to fluoresce. The oral cavity can then be examined in real time, enhancing the practitioner’s ability to visualize suspicious tissue that may require further investigation.
