High-powered cameras are becoming smaller and smaller these days, so much so that Dr. Witek can now use one to closely examine your mouth, showing him much more detail compared to a traditional visual checkup. He can take and display images of your teeth and gums on a large monitor right in the treatment room, turning your appointments into an educational and transparent experience that will help you understand your oral health much better.
Digital Impression System
We use the Carestream 3600 digital scanner to make the impression process faster, more comfortable, and more accurate at the same time. Now, whenever we do a crown or implant, we simply scan the teeth with a small intraoral camera that records a 3D image of the mouth. The digital file created can then be sent directly to our dental lab for the fabrication of the prosthesis. This is great for patients who have a very sensitive gag reflex.
By upgrading to all-digital X-rays, we’ve made this essential part of our checkup process faster, sharper, and safer. These X-ray images reveal much more detail than your typical film X-ray, and they only take a fraction of the time to develop. Better yet, they expose a patient to 90% LESS radiation as well. The images are easy to store, reference, and send instantly and infinitely, which improves long-term care and speeds up insurance claims.
Our CO2 laser is a tremendously versatile instrument. With it, we can perform a wide variety of soft tissue procedures without using a scalpel and sutures like we did in the past. It allows us to remove infected or excess gum tissue while reducing bleeding and discomfort to practically nothing. And, because it sanitizes an area as it goes, patients also experience shorter recovery times as well.
Cavity Detection Systems
In the past, our only way to find cavities involved literally poking and prodding your teeth. Now, fortunately, we can take a more sophisticated approach. Using a special light, we can scan the teeth in a way that shows us even the slightest signs of thinning or decay. This allows us to catch cavities as early as possible so we can treat them right away. Over time, we’re able to preserve more of a patient’s teeth and help them avoid more serious dental issues.
