CEREC is an advanced dental technology used in the restoration of cracked, decaying, or chipped teeth. CEREC can create porcelain restorations of full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers in a matter of minutes, allowing you to complete your treatment in only one visit.
Placement of a CEREC restoration is very simple. First we remove all traces of decay from the tooth, then we shape the tooth allowing the camera to take a suitable image. You will then be able to see the tooth in 3D while the doctor designs the restoration right in front of you. You can even watch as the CEREC mills the restoration, which takes around 15 minutes. When the restoration is finished, Dr. Vincent will place it.
2. Digital X-Ray
The use of digital x-rays is quickly becoming standard within the dental industry. Digital x-rays allow the dentist to take a high quality image of teeth and transfer it to an imaging program, where they can see your teeth with amazing accuracy. As an added benefit, the digital x-rays also exposes the patient to 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray.
3. Electric Hand-Pieces
There are two types of hand-pieces: air-driven and electric. We use electric as they are much stronger than air-driven. This allows the doctor to remove decay much more quickly, cutting down on the time spent on the procedure.
4. Intra-oral Camera
The intra-oral camera is a diagnostic tool used to view the mouth and teeth from all angles, giving us a closer look and allowing us to more accurately diagnose problems. It also gives patients the opportunity to see what the dentist is seeing. These digital images are also excellent for gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.
5. Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for the patient. Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit Professional Dentistry.
A panorex is an imaging machine that is capable of identifying issues and structures that x-rays are not. After sitting in the machine, it will rotate around you and take a 360 degree image of your teeth, head, and sinuses. It is especially useful for viewing specific types of structural problems, infections, and asymmetry among other things.
7. Rotary Endodontics
Root canal therapy, often referred to as a “Root Canal”, is a procedure in which the infected roots of a tooth are removed, usually because they are causing pain. Rotary endodontics utilizes an electric hand-piece, speeding up the process and allowing the dentist greater ease of use.
