You may be confident that when you visit our office for treatment, our staff will make use of the most up-to-date technologies to improve the quality and effectiveness of your dental care.
Our practice uses high power microscopes to enhance the precision of patient care.
Dentistry is micro-surgery. Using a microscope that is similar to the one an ophthalmologist uses enables us to create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just can’t fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.
In addition to allowing precise, close-up work, the microscope directs a beam of light directly on the teeth, minimizing glare for you.
Many dentists use air-driven “hand-pieces” (the dental term for “drills”). While acceptable for many procedures, these “whiney sounding” air-powered hand pieces all have a degree of non-concentricity; they do not rotate perfectly smoothly.
We use electric hand-pieces for the most precise parts of restorative operations. As a result, your tooth and your new restoration have incredibly accurate interfaces (crown, veneer, or filling). You will feel more at ease as a result of this. A more precise tool produces less noise and vibration.
Our doctors take great care in deciding which radiographs to take when. There are numerous rules that we adhere to. We can see everything with radiographs that our eyes cannot. We can use radiographs to assess the health of your bone, measure bone level, and find cavities between your teeth. Additionally, we can check the roots and nerves of teeth, identify abnormalities like cysts or tumors, and evaluate injury after trauma.
Dental radiographs are essential tools for identifying dental problems, correcting them, and preserving dental health. Dental radiographs have a very little exposure time. Digital imaging technologies are used by Dental Group of Evergreen Park in the office. Comparing digital imaging to conventional radiographs, the exposure time is roughly reduced by 50%. We can also get useful diagnostic data from digital imaging. We might have a better view of cavities.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.
We utilize intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. The camera allows us to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, we can see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intraoral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
