Advanced Dental Technology

3D Facial scanning

Facial scanning is a digital technology that has revolutionized the field of dentistry by allowing for the creation of accurate and precise dental prosthetics. Facial scanning involves using specialized cameras to capture high-resolution images of a patient’s face, which are then converted into a 3D digital model of the patient’s teeth and surrounding structures. This process allows Dr. Doctor to create custom dental prosthetics tailored to each patient’s unique facial anatomy, resulting in a more natural and comfortable fit. Facial scanning also enables Dr. Doctor to simulate the outcome of various dental procedures, such as the placement of dental implants, before any work is done, which can help to improve the predictability and success of these procedures. Overall, facial scanning has become an essential tool for doctors to provide numerous patient benefits.

3D Printing

Dr. Ravi Doctor can utilize a 3D printer in his dental office to create customized dental appliances such as crowns, dentures, retainers, night guards, and other orthodontic devices with improved accuracy and precision. With a 3D printer, he can quickly scan and design the appliance using computer-aided design (CAD) software and then print it in a matter of minutes, depending on the complexity of the device. The 3D printing process is efficient and reliable and produces high-quality results that match the patient’s unique dental needs. Additionally, having a 3D printer in the office means that Dr. Ravi Doctor can provide same-day services to patients, which can significantly improve patient satisfaction.


A Dental CT (Computed Tomography) scan offers several advantages for patients in various dental procedures such as dental implants, orthodontic treatment, airway assessments and sleep apnea, oral surgery, sinus lift, and nerve tracing. In the case of dental implants, a CT scan provides detailed information about the patient’s jawbone density and quality, which is crucial for determining the most suitable implant type and size for their needs. This information also helps Dr. Doctor to plan the precise placement of the implant for maximum stability and support. Similarly, in orthodontic treatment, a CT scan helps to assess the position of teeth and jaws, identify any abnormalities or discrepancies, and develop an appropriate treatment plan.

In airway assessments and sleep apnea cases, a CT scan allows Dr. Doctor to examine the airway and determine if any blockages or obstructions are present. This information helps find out the most effective treatment plan, including oral appliances or surgery. In oral surgery procedures such as sinus lifts and nerve tracing, a CT scan provides a detailed view of the affected area, allowing Dr. Doctor to plan the procedure and minimize the risk of complications.

Dr. Doctor, a high-tech dental implantologist and board-certified dental implantologist in Arlington, uses the latest technology and techniques to ensure the best possible patient outcomes. By incorporating dental CT scans into his practice, Dr. Doctor can give his patients a higher level of precision and accuracy in dental procedures, resulting in better outcomes and greater satisfaction.


A centrifuge is an apparatus designed to rotate at high velocities, enabling the segregation of materials based on varying densities. In a dental office, a centrifuge is often used to separate blood components such as platelets or plasma for use in procedures like dental surgery. Dr. Doctor utilizes the centrifuge in his Arlington dental office to prepare platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), which is a natural clotting agent that can help with healing and tissue regeneration. The centrifuge divides blood into its various constituents, and then the PRF is isolated and used in procedures like dental implant placement or periodontal surgery to aid in the healing process.

Intraoral camera

Dr. Doctor routinely utilizes an intraoral camera in his Arlington dental office to provide patients with a better understanding of their oral health. The compact and portable intraoral camera takes detailed images of teeth, gums, and other mouthparts. This tool enables Dr. Doctor to display real-time visuals of problem areas, like cavities or gum disease, directly to patients. This helps patients better understand their diagnosis and treatment options. Moreover, the images taken by the intraoral camera can be stored and utilized to monitor a patient’s treatment progression over a period. This technology also allows for earlier detection of dental issues, leading to more effective treatment and potentially preventing more serious oral health problems in the future. Overall, the use of intraoral cameras in Dr. Doctor’s Arlington dental office benefits patients by improving communication and understanding of their oral health and promoting earlier detection and more effective treatment of dental issues.

Diode laser

Diode lasers are commonly used in dental procedures, including gingivectomy, troughing, and treatment of gummy smiles, due to their ability to cut soft tissues precisely with minimal bleeding and reduced healing time. They also supply better access and visibility to the treatment site, allowing more accurate and controlled procedures. Dr. Doctor utilizes the diode laser in his Arlington office to perform these procedures with greater precision and efficiency, resulting in improved patient outcomes. Additionally, the diode laser can be used for photobiomodulation therapy, which involves the application of low-level laser therapy to promote healing and lower pain and inflammation. Overall, using diode lasers in dental procedures offers significant advantages, including less pain, less bleeding, and faster recovery time, ultimately leading to a better patient experience.

Digital impressions

Dr. Doctor utilizes digital impressions in his Arlington office as a modern alternative to traditional dental impressions. Digital impressions are created using a compact handheld scanner that captures 3D images of a patient’s teeth and gums. These images are subsequently transferred to a computer for examination and storage. This technology offers multiple advantages for patients, such as a more comfortable procedure since it eliminates the use of messy impression substances that often lead to discomfort and gagging. Additionally, digital impressions are more accurate than traditional impressions, leading to better-fitting restorations and reduced retake needs. Patients can also see a preview of what their teeth will look like after treatment, allowing them to make more informed decisions about their dental care. Digital impressions are a valuable tool for Dr. Doctor and his patients, offering a more comfortable and efficient dental experience.

Porter SILHOUETTE nasal mask

A groundbreaking dental nitrous oxide mask. This innovative device simplifies nitrous oxide administration, addressing common challenges with traditional bulky masks. The nasal mask boasts a compact and comfortable design, ensuring a snug fit around the nose to minimize leakage and enhance the overall nitrous oxide experience. With four size options available, the Porter SILHOUETTE nasal mask accommodates patients of all sizes, providing a tailored and predictable nitrous oxide encounter.

Digital x-rays

Dr. Doctor utilizes digital X-rays to provide patients with a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Digital X-rays use electronic sensors to capture detailed images of the teeth and surrounding structures. These images can be viewed instantly on a computer screen, allowing Dr. Doctor to zoom in and enhance specific areas for a more detailed analysis. Moreover, digital X-rays emit less radiation than traditional X-rays, making them a safer and better option for patients. Another benefit of digital X-rays is that they are more environmentally friendly, as there is no need for chemical processing and disposal of hazardous materials. Overall, using digital X-rays in Dr. Doctor’s practice helps improve patient care, increase efficiency, and reduce the environmental impact of traditional X-ray processing.
