Minimally Invasive Technologies
Today’s dental patients are seeking less invasive dental techniques, as illustrated by these leading edge MID technologies. Digital Radiography: Instant and enhanced images to aid in diagnosis, while exposing patients to less radiation, without harmful chemicals. Laser and Non-Invasive Decay Detection: Reliable and enhanced early detection of cavitations and decay to allow for early restoration and tooth preservation. Magnification: Allows for earlier detection of symptoms, less invasive treatment and, preservation of dental hard and soft tissues. Intra-Oral Camera: Instant and enhanced imaging for diagnosis and better patient understanding. Caries Screening and Management: Provides patients with a high level of service by testing for pathogenic bacteria and a means to control their disease. Oral Cancer Detection Systems: Helps potentially save the lives of patients by locating oral cancer in its earliest stages allowing for early treatment. Soft Tissue Lasers: Dental lasers promote healing by stimulating cell growth and regeneration, while reducing bleeding and providing anti-inflammatory and biostimulatory effects. Hard Tissue Lasers: Eliminate micro-fractures to the hard tissue, while allowing for stronger bonding of restorations with decreased sensitivity, tooth structure preservation and decreased need for chemical anesthesia. Air Abrasion: Allows for better detection of carious lesions, improved bonding of sealants and restorations, and tooth structure preservation with decreased need for chemical anesthesia. CAD/CAM Restoration Fabrication: Conservatively restores teeth using long lasting, ideally fitting, biomimetic materials in one appointment with no provisional restorations, decreased chemical anesthesia and eliminating second appointments. Implants: Preserve both bone and tooth structure by eliminating bridges and controlling bone loss in edentulous areas following tooth extraction.
