Dentistry is a technologically advanced, rapidly evolving field. New discoveries and developments are constantly raising the bar on dental treatment options available to patients. Because we pride ourselves in offering nothing but the best, we regularly update our facility with newer, better equipment. As Dr. Jain, founder of Center for Implant Dentistry, has said, â€œI would not buy myself a Mercedes car, but I buy the Mercedes of dental equipment for my office.â€
3-Dimensional CAT Scan
This is by far the most important piece of equipment in our office. Although some practices attempt to place implants using only 2D (standard x-ray) images, we believe that accurate diagnostics and precision planning are keys to healthy, successful treatment.
Conventional impressions are only just so efficient in achieving accuracy for restorations. Inconsistent quality of the impression too often leads to retakes, inferior clinical and esthetic results and an increased need for adjustments during seating of the restoration. The TRIOS digital impression solution solves many problems by providing quick and accurate impressions without the discomfort caused by standard methods. Digital impressions are more accurate and they reduce the number of appointments and chair time.
Old-fashioned film-based x-rays are quickly being replaced by digital alternatives. As leaders in advanced technology, we have been using this technique for some time. We find it to be quite beneficial to our patients, as this method emits 80 percent less radiation than standard equipment.
Digital x-rays are more comfortable than traditional x-rays. After a short image-taking session, the digital image is instantly transferred to specialized software that displays the high-definition image right on our computer screen. The digital view allows us to view hard and soft tissues that we may not have fully see on film.
CEREC technology allows us to provide dental restorations in a day with no goopy impressions or temporary restorations. We can create a variety of restorations right here in our
office while you wait comfortably. CEREC may be used for inlays, onlays, full crowns, and porcelain veneers. CEREC restorations are made of beautiful, durable ceramic that is of the highest quality. The important difference in materials is that CEREC ceramic is compressed, giving it superior strength unlike the layered porcelain that comes from a lab. Despite the many other advantages of
CEREC, most patients consider the greatest benefit to be the convenience of single-visit dentistry.
The process of restoring a tooth with
CEREC is very simple and straightforward, but it is technique sensitive. Our team is highly trained and skilled in the creation of beautiful, long-lasting CEREC restorations, which are made in just a few simple
- Damaged tooth material is removed. The tooth is shaped as needed for optimal retention of the restoration.
- A fine powder is applied, which allows the digital
imaging machine to capture detailed data. A digital impression is taken,
which is similar to photographing the tooth. This imaging takes the
place of standard impressions.
- The image is displayed on a computer screen and your
doctor uses specialized software to design your new restoration while
you watch. The data is sent to the CEREC milling machine, which sculpts
your restoration from a solid block.
- The fit and color of the restoration are verified, and
it is cemented in place. Thatâ€™s it! The process is completed in about an
The intraoral camera gives us a real-time view of hard and soft tissues in the mouth. The camera is very small, allowing us to view teeth clearly from various angles without causing patient discomfort. Images are displayed in amazing detail on a large screen and we can zoom in on areas of particular concern.
Computer Guided Surgery
Computer tomography (CT or CAT) was initially introduced to dentistry in the late 1980s, raising the bar on dental implant treatment. This revolutionary technology provided an unprecedented opportunity for the accurate evaluation of anatomic structures with detailed accuracy. CT devices and applications evolved rapidly, as clinicians discovered innovative ways to put this technology to work for the patient.
Laser and Piezoelectric Surgery
Traditional surgical techniques utilize a scalpel, which is a small, sharp knife. Incisions, like any other cuts, tend to bleed. This means that time is needed to heal. Due to the advanced technology available today, a scalpel is rarely necessary for oral surgery. We can often complete even complex implant placement procedures without cutting and with little to no post procedure soreness.
Dineah T. I love this place from the day I walked in a month ago these people have made me feel comfortable and have built my confidence up so much already and I just started my journey... Ps Dr. Jain is the bomb he is doing magic on my implant so far.
