T-Scan computerized bite analysis
The T-Scan is a system that uses an intraoral sensor to measure a patient’s occlusion. Like an x-ray, it shows the dental team where there may be destructive forces that are not visible to the naked eye. The T-Scan system enhances patient education, reduces costly repeat visits and remakes, and enables a more confident, and proactive approach to patient care. In our practice the T-Scan is used as a diagnostic tool, a documentation tool, a communication tool, a monitoring tool, and a treatment tool.
We offer many different types of digital imaging in our practice. We use intraoral cameras to capture small areas in the mouth during diagnostic appointments and restorative procedures . We utilize digital radiography which is the most efficient form of x-ray imaging. Digital x-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film; the advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing, the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images and reduced radiation during the exposure time.
Say goodbye to the goopy, sticky impression material! Our team is now using the iTero Element scanner to digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Ask us about it at your next dental appointment.
Our doctors and hygienists are certified in laser dentistry. We use the Biolase Epic X laser system in our practice. Lasers assist in regeneration of lost collagen and connective tissue that is caused by periodontal disease, alleviate pain associated with tooth sensitivity, eliminate bacteria, and reduce, treat and stop the occurrence of aphthous ulcers. Lasers are used in cosmetic dentistry for crown lengthening to achieve a more esthetic smile and in surgical procedures to reduce pain and the need for sutures. Lasers allow a proactive approach to dentistry and improve patient quality of oral health. We continuously elevate our standard of care to improve patient outcomes through laser technology.
