This device allows your doctor to precisely plan and place dental implants in just an hour. It works by taking a CT scan of your mouth and displaying it on a chairside computer monitor. This will be used to determine the perfect location for your implants, and your surgical guide will be mapped out directly onto the image.
Then, when it’s time to actually place your implants, special indicators attached to the dental tools will show your dentist exactly where their instruments are located in relation to the guide. This will enable them to use the large, clear image on the monitor for reference during your procedure rather than have to just lean over and look into your mouth. This will ensure accuracy, comfort, and guarantee that you will have the best possible outcome.
Carestream 3600 Digital Scanner
With this state-of-the art tool, we are able to create a fully 3D image of your teeth and gums within minutes only using a small, camera-tipped device. This image will be displayed, in real time, on a chairside monitor. Your doctor can then view these images and use them to easily diagnose dental issues, plan different procedures, or send them instantly to a dental lab.
These images can be downloaded directly into a dental lab’s design software, enabling them to fabricate any restoration you need much faster and with more accuracy, reducing the amount of time you’ll have to wear a temporary. The process of getting the scan is completely painless, and you’ll be amazed at how detailed the images are. It will give you a whole new perspective on your smile!
PreXion Cone Beam CT
The most advanced imaging technology available, Cone Beam CT is similar to a medical CT scan, but is much quicker and with much less radiation exposure. Up to eighty percent less, in fact. Using our PreXion Cone Beam CT, Dr. Doctor is able to plan dental implant and oral surgeries, orthodontics, even root canal therapy, with more precision than ever before. Plus, Dr. Doctor has a CT scanner at his Southlake office.
Digital x-rays provide the basis for the complete and accurate diagnosis of almost every dental condition. In recent years, you may have heard rumors concerning over-exposure to radiation from dental x-rays. Now, however, digital x-ray technology is helping Dr. Doctor address the concerns of our patients.
Dr. Doctor performs dental procedures looking through a surgical microscope, which allows for 3-20x magnification. Microscope-enhanced dentistry allows Dr. Doctor the ability to see details that would go unnoticed to the naked eye.
A part of medical surgeries for many years, lasers now offer dental patients precise, efficient, effective, and minimally-invasive treatments, as well as reduced healing time. They also function in many other capacities to improve patient care and treatments, from gum disease therapy to super-fast teeth whitening procedures.
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
Early detection is key in the fight against oral cancer. In addition to a well-trained eye, Dr. Doctor and his team use ViziLite and VELscope oral cancer screening. These advanced methods use UV light and fluorescence to detect areas of concern that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Platelet Rich Fibrin Technique
This modern miracle allows Dr. Doctor to use a patient’s own cells to grow new bone instead of requiring grafts with harvested bone or synthetic materials. By centrifuging blood, it separates into layers, including a PRF containing clot. The PRF is applied to the site during oral surgery, encouraging the body’s natural process and generating additional bone mass where desired. PRF can be used in sinus lifts and bone grafts for dental implant patients.
DIAGNOdent Laser-Assisted Cavity Detection
One of the most common services offered to you is the identification and filling of cavities, portions of the tooth that have decayed. To make the process more comfortable and comprehensive, we use DIAGNOdent, a revolutionary dental laser that is sixty percent more accurate in detecting decay than x-rays alone.
Preserving Bone with Autotome™
Having one or more teeth extracted is never a pleasant experience, but Autotome™ can help make it simpler, more comfortable, and more beneficial for your oral health than ever before. In fact, studies have shown that the use of Autotome™ can directly impact the success of subsequently placed restorations in the extraction site!
Assisting Procedures with Piezotome
Wisdom teeth extraction, sinus lifts, implant procedures, and other like minded services deserve a gentle touch. That’s why Dr. Doctor prefers to use the dental piezotome, which keeps tissue cutting as precise and clean as possible for the sake of the patient. This ultrasonic generator is safe, much less traumatic, and faster – patients can expect to recover at a far greater speed than when a traditional dental drill is used.
Plasma Arc Curing Light
Curing lights are an essential component of restorative dentistry, and Dr. Doctor is proud to have invested in the Plasma Arc Curing Light as the most technologically advanced and effective model in the market. Patients can look forward to a more effective and more consistent experience that leaves their treated teeth better than ever.
ACTEON’S SOPROLIFE is an intraoral camera and a caries detection device all in one! Our team will be capable of capturing high-resolution images of your smile and sharing them with you for optimal patient education. We can also more precisely identify areas of decay and damage that even digital X-rays may not clearly show.
All too often, dental care can be uncomfortable for the patient as their dentist is constantly rearranging tools within the mouth. Thankfully, the Isolite system helps to protect the most vulnerable areas (the tongue and cheeks) with a comfortable mouthpiece while also providing a convenient LED light that makes it easier for Dr. Doctor to care for your oral health needs properly. Patients will even be able to rest their mouths and relax, as the device has a protective shield that does the work for you.
AnyRidge® Dental Implant System
AnyRidge is a type of dental implant that often provides better results because of its unique design. AnyRidge is tapered and that works for a variety of smiles, ensuring that more bone tissue is preserved. In some cases Dr. Doctor is able to avoid bone grafting or advanced surgery by preserving more bone tissue, which is a major benefit for patient and doctor alike.
