The field of dentistry is continually moving forward, and now more than ever, it’s important to stay current on the latest tools. New technology becomes available every day, and there are quite a few options out there. At our office in Saratoga Springs, UT, we take advantage of advanced technology to offer our patients the best care.
Galileos 3D Beam Scanning
Our Galileos 3D Beam Scanning equipment does much more than x-ray your teeth. This technology allows us to get a complete 3D picture of every part of your mouth, so we don’t miss a thing. When your dentist can see the complete picture of your teeth in addition to the dental roots and facial bones, they can more accurately diagnose problems and provide a better treatment plan. You get a significantly lower dose of radiation than you might through more traditional x-rays. Finally, the process is fast, easy, and much more comfortable than other methods that might be used.
CEREC (Chairside Economic Restoration & Esthetic Ceramic) allows us to make crowns, veneers, dental implant restorations, and more right at our location in Saratoga Springs, UT. Other methods involve taking molds of your mouth and sending them away to a lab. An off-site lab means you end up with a temporary fitting or a long wait. It also means a return trip to have the permanent fixture placed. Even after you have your new crown, it could still end up fitting improperly, which means another mold and yet another trip. With CEREC, there is no need for a middleman. Everything is made on-site while you wait. You leave with your permanent crown. The CEREC equipment used to make your crown receives a 3D image and it mills the restoration while you wait! This reduces inaccuracies and gives you a better-fitting device in far less time.
Solea® Laser Dentistry
Many patients start getting anxious at the mere mention of a dentist’s drill. Solea laser dentistry is making the dental drill a thing of the past. This technology uses a laser for addressing cavities and root canals to prepare the tooth for filling or a crown. The laser can also be used on various soft tissue procedures and reduces the potential risks involved with some types of dental surgeries.
