These days, it seems like there’s new technology coming out every day! But as a smart consumer, you shouldn’t just buy everything because it’s brand-new. You pick out the truly valuable technology that’ll make your life easier and better. We approach dental technology the same way. We’ve acquired the most state-of-the-art machines and instruments to make your time with us as productive and comfortable as possible. Read on to learn more about what we use in our Braintree practice.
X-ray technology has been around for a long time, but now we are able to take them digitally. This not only involves less radiation but is much faster to evaluate. Instead of developing the X-rays with harsh chemicals, we can see the images within minutes on our screens, expediting your diagnosis. We use Dexis digital X-rays to identify cavities, bone loss, and other issues because they are known for effectiveness and efficiency.
As advanced as X-rays have become, they still don’t reveal the whole picture. That’s where our Morita CBCT scanner provides us with valuable information, such as the location of blood vessels and much more. For complex procedures like dental implant placement, this technology helps us plan and avoid complications. Basically, we take multiple images around your head, which allows us to create a 3D model of your oral cavity and see everything we need.
Gums and other soft tissues in your mouth play a crucial role for your oral health, which is why utilize a soft tissue laser. While traditional soft tissue procedures using a scalpel are more invasive and involve more bleeding and longer healing, our LVI and diode laser make gum disease therapy and other procedures basically painless. In fact, we often don’t even need to administer a local anesthethetic! This precise laser technology gives us the ability to remove infected or damaged tissue with minimal bleeding and without sutures.
