What technology is used at Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry?
Dr. Sima F. Chegini prides herself in using the latest technologies to improve oral health and wellness safely and effectively. The field of dental technology changes regularly, and she stays abreast of these changes to ensure patients have access to the solutions they need to achieve healthy and beautiful smiles for life! Below are just a few of the technologically-advanced instruments and tools used in her practice:
CEREC: Same day crown
CEREC is an acronym that stands for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics”. This technology utilizes digital impressions and specialized CAD/CAM software to provide same-day restorations while patients wait! The machine will mill a dental crown out of a block of porcelain within less than an hour, allowing the dentist to prepare and place the dental crown during the same appointment. This saves everyone’s time and money while ensuring a quality restoration of the patient’s smile!
We take pride in mastering “CEREC” innovative technology, a pioneer in CAD/CAM. This 3D printing device that enables us to use its intra-oral camera called Omnicam to scan the mouth and fabricate the most precise custom-fit dental crowns, bridges, and veneers in just one visit at the convenience of our office.
This revolutionary technology eliminates the need for:
- Messy impressions
- Temporary crowns
- Long delays by off-site dental labs
- A second visit to receive the crown in 2 weeks
Our X-rays are entirely digital, generating the most accurate images of the hard tissues including teeth and bone, beyond what the eye can see with the least amount of radiation and highest levels of safety. In fact, digital X-rays may provide approximately 90% less radiation exposure than traditional X-rays. Digital X-rays also provide immediate digital images on the computer screen allowing our team to examine and evaluate an image that the patient can view and appreciate on a bigger screen. This technology provides effective patient communication and patient education on dental findings and feasible treatment options. Zooming in and out also allows for clear imaging of the patient’s dentition. Because the X-ray images are digital, they are easy to store in a patient’s electronic files for pulling up quickly in the future for reference or could be emailed to another facility as needed.
Soft tissue lasers:
Lasers have been used in various areas of medicine for many years with exciting results. Laser light can penetrate deep while also avoiding harm to surrounding tissues. Dr. Sima F. Chegini of Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is excited to use lasers in her practice to provide advanced laser dentistry for patients of all ages.
Our laser technology is easily tolerated by patients and results in smooth and speedy recovery by reducing the invasiveness of soft tissue procedures. Lasers are typically used to recontour the gingival margin next to a restoration where the soft tissue is in the way for proper reconstruction of the tooth via a crown or a veneer. It’s also used to uncover the dental implant before loading it with a final restoration and many more applications where pathology or unfavorable conditions have affected the gum and the soft tissue.
Ultrasonic Instrument: SONICARE
Our ultrasonic technology makes our hygiene appointments go much more efficiently and smoothly. The sound technology incorporated in Sonicare can remove the calcified build up material called tartar faster and more conservatively without causing any harm to soft tissues. As a result, it leaves smooth surfaces on teeth and their root structures after removing all the roughness and irregularities caused by tartar or calculus. Ultrasonic scalers are the most effective tools in the conservative treatment of gingivitis and periodontitis by eradicating the bacteria and bacterial toxins in the form of tartar as the main cause of gum disease.
CBCT dental scanners: 3-D imaging system
Dental Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a special imaging equipment used when regular dental or facial X-rays are not sufficient. Dr. Chegini may use this technology to produce three-dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a single scan. This image is an important diagnostic tool for multiple procedures like root canal therapy, orthodontics, and implant dentistry. When a dental implant needs to be placed, it assesses the thickness and height of the jaw bone and determines if any vital structures such as a nerve or blood vessel are in the way of safe and successful placement of the titanium implant. If the bone thickness is borderline or a vital structure is in the way of placing an implant, often a surgical guide needs to be fabricated by a dental laboratory using the 3-D scan obtained from CBCT technology. This guide will facilitate precise and accurate placement of an implant safely and successfully in questionable areas of the mouth where the jaw bone is scarce and thin, and a tooth is missing.
What is an Intraoral Camera?
At Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we use intraoral cameras routinely as an effective tool to communicate and educate our patients. Intraoral cameras are tiny digital cameras that enable our team to capture images of difficult-to-reach areas in the mouth. They can easily go inside the mouth, and the images taken then could be magnified on the screen to show the findings to patients much more efficiently. They are the most powerful diagnostic tools to capture hidden teeth problems even in the most troublesome areas of the mouth.
The camera looks like a writing pen that, when moved around inside the mouth, allows the practitioner to see detailed, enlarged images of teeth surfaces, gum conditions, and other minute details about tissues, cavities, etc. the naked eye cannot see. An intraoral camera does not cause any pain or discomfort to the patient and has no side effects. We use intraoral cameras at our new patients’ appointments to capture clear video and images of all the dental findings in their mouth, including the corroded or tarnished fillings, hairline fractures, bleeding gums, tartar , and several other critical teeth problems in real-time, while the patient is comfortably seated in the dental chair.
