CO2 Light Scalpel Laser
Using digital photography is a great addition to our patient cases for fabricating restorations, developing treatment plans, and for use in orthodontic cases. This technology also is used for before and after photographs to showcase patients’ results.
This system comes complete with a computerized mandibular scanner, electromyography that emits pulses to the jaw muscles to stimulate relaxation, and Electrosonography ideal for analyzing jaw movements,and sounds, is perfect for diagnosing and treating TMJ or TMD
Digital x-rays allow the dentist to be able to diagnose and treat areas below the gum line including the jawbone, implant placement, dental extractions, root canals, and more. They are much more comfortable for patients than traditional methods, and the image is generated on a computer screen and is immediately ready for viewing.
The 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner allows us to generate 3D images of your teeth and inside of your mouth, which is ideal for developing treatment plans for restorations such as crowns, veneers, dental implants, and dentures. The 3D images can immediately be sent to our dental laboratory partner to begin work right away on your dental restoration.
the CO2 Light Scalpel evaporates soft tissue as it works, instead of having to cut it away. Surgery with the CO2 Light Scalpel laser means less bleeding, shorter downtime, and a more comfortable procedure and recovery for patients. Plus, its precision is unparalleled even to the most skilled dentist using a scalpel.
Our newest X-ray technology is the Cone Beam Computed Tomography or CBCT, which is used to generate precise 3-D that are much clearer than what we get from using a traditional X-ray machine. By using this advanced technology, we can customize the device to capture a specific view of a patient’s jaw, head, neck, or facial structure.
