Accuracy and Precision With Digital Impressions
No longer do you have to go through providing impressions by sinking your teeth into a putty tray. With the 3M™ True Definition Scanner, we can have a digital, three-dimensional impression to satisfy many dental needs. Crowns and bridges, inlays and onlays, aligners, veneers, and mouthguards can now be accurately designed and created with this new technology. Our doctor takes a digital impression of the gum and tooth area, and the e-file is forwarded to a lab that will make the restoration. The fit is very accurate and the restoration easily inserted. It is a quick and efficient process that will keep you smiling!
Advancements in X-rays
We've gone digital with our X-rays, which means 75% less radiation and no waiting time for the image to develop. It is available immediately on our computer screen. We also can provide a panoramic X-ray, which includes both the upper and lower jaws. With digital technology, no chemicals that are polluting to the environment are used in the process.
Becoming Part of the Team
With modern technology, Dr. Nanavati can work together with you in your dental decisions. The intra-oral camera is a very small video camera that lets you see for yourself exactly what the doctor is seeing. It gives a close-up picture of your entire oral cavity. You can then see the problem areas that need work and which teeth are just fine. Most patients are impressed with this amazing device that lets them be part of the process.
We are pleased to offer cutting-edge technology with the cone beam digital-imaging technology. This is like a three-dimensional digital X-ray that is much more accurate than the regular X-ray. There is little radiation exposure, and the imaging process takes very little time.
All reusable instruments at our practice meet the highest standards of cleanliness. Instruments are sterilized in an autoclave, a special cleaning unit that is monitored by an outside lab to ensure all requirements of cleanliness are met. We properly discard any single-use tools after treatments. We want you to be assured we never take any risks when it comes to your safety and health.
Getting Your Teeth as Clean as They Can Be
With the Piezo Scaler™, we clean your teeth like they've never been cleaned before! This high-tech tool removes plaque and tartar from teeth and in the gumline. It is a small hand tool that emits high-frequency vibrations that gently and quickly take away these deposits. There is less discomfort, and patients are amazed by how clean their teeth feel!
Prevent Tooth Loss from Trauma or Injury
A properly fitting mouthguard will protect your teeth from trauma and injury to prevent tooth loss. It is a relatively little known statistic that approximately 5 million teeth are lost each year during participation in many different sports. We recommend a custom-made mouthguard that will fit with precision to give ultimate protection and will not hinder breathing during exertion.
The American Dental Association recommends the use of custom-created mouthguards for the following sports: Acrobatics, basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, handball, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, shotputting, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer, squash, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weight lifting, and wrestling.
Early Detection of Cavities Means a Smaller Restoration
Perhaps you have encountered this scenario at one of your visits to a dental office. Even though you have regular check-ups, you are surprised to hear you have a rather large cavity in one of your back teeth. You begin to wonder: how did it get so large in such a short amount of time? The answer is, it was there months before, it just was not detectable.
With SOPROLIFE™ fluorescence technology, we can find cavities when they are very small. That way, the decay can be removed and repaired with a very small, bonded filling. Patients may have tooth sensitivity or some level of pain, for which X-rays or examination cannot determine the cause. But with SOPROLIFE, decay that previously has been undetectable can now be identified and the problem easily taken care of.
