Overall, technology is improving at a rapid pace, and thankfully, much of that progress can be seen in dentistry as well. Using the latest tools, we’re able to find problems faster, treat them in less time, and keep our patients more comfortable throughout the entire process. We’re constantly updating our facility so our patients can always benefit from the very best that dentistry has to offer, and we can’t wait for you to come experience it for yourself.
Our intraoral camera enables our team to capture close-up, high-definition images of a patient’s teeth and gums we can display on a monitor right next to the treatment chair. These not only make it easier for our team to examine the mouth and catch potential problems sooner, but they also help a patient literally gain a whole new perspective on their dental health. Now, our patients are able to see exactly what their dentist is seeing so they can completely understand their needs and enjoy peace of mind.
X-rays are an essential part of our practice because they help our team find dental issues before they are even visible to the naked eye, enabling us to treat them as early as possible. We’ve upgraded to fully digital X-rays because compared to traditional film radiography, there really is no comparison! Digital X-rays create sharper images, take much less time to do so, and emit 90% less radiation as well, which is especially good news for parents with small children.
X-Guide is a program that allows Dr. Kalluri to place dental implants into a patient’s mouth with maximum precision. With it, she can use a digital 3D model of a patient’s teeth and jaws to find the perfect position, angle, and depth down to the millimeter to put the implants so they have the best hold possible. This leaves absolutely nothing to chance so our patients can look forward to a smooth and easy procedure that always ends with fantastic results.
Dental impressions allow us to create a working model of a patient’s teeth in order to better design their treatment, but in the past, we needed to use messy, odd-tasting dental putty to do this. Thankfully, CEREC technology has completely digitized this process. With just a few quick scans of the mouth, we can generate an exhaustively-detailed digital model of the teeth. This process is much more comfortable than the traditional one, and it’s faster as well because it takes a perfect impression the first time, every time.
Many patients dread dental appointments because they hate the thought of needles being used to administer local anesthesia. Thankfully, Calaject offers an alternative method that still helps patients become safely numb for extensive procedures. The hand-held, computer-assisted tool controls the flow rate very precisely, eliminating virtually all discomfort and stress from the experience. Better yet, the targeted nature of this technology helps minimize any unintentional, lingering numbing throughout the face.
