A Partner in Your Dental Health
At Smile Design Dental Care, our offices use new technology to assist in diagnosis and treatment of your oral health. Some of the state-of-the-art technology includes:
iTero Scanner – State-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. With our scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.
Intra Oral Camera – the camera allows you to see what we see to better understand the suggested treatment options.
Velscope – innovative technology to assist in oral cancer screening. It uses natural tissue fluorescence to improve the way dentists examine the oral mucosa and screen for tissue abnormalities by enhancing the visualization of pre-cancers, cancer, and other disease processes.
CariVu – Caries Detection Device Using CariVu during routine check-up, the dentist can identify questionable areas early on and decide on a course of preventive care. CariVu has filled the gap for children, pregnant women and others who may not be able to have traditional X-rays taken. For those patients who are X-ray averse, CariVu is an alternative diagnostic method with which they can be comfortable with.
Diode Laser – The soft tissue diode laser is commonly used for restorative procedures, veneers, crown and bridge, re-contouring the gum tissue, and to treat periodontal disease. Lasers eliminate pain, facilitate quick healing, kill bacteria and viruses, and reduce healing time. The soft tissue diode laser can be used to shape the gums, remove excess gum tissue, to expose a tooth that needs to be brought into place, such as during orthodontic treatment, for periodontal health and healing, and to expose decay that has crept under the gum.
