We live in the greatest age of dentistry. Advancements and understanding are increasing at a staggering pace and staying up to date with these changes is critical to the care of our patients. Evidence continues to mount linking the state of the mouth to the overall condition of the body. Providing patients with knowledge and dental care that can change and improve their quality of life is our ultimate goal.
We constantly strive to give our patients the finest dental care possible, and we understand that our investment in advanced technology leads to better dental outcomes. We use a variety of dental technologies described below.
X-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Detecting issues with x-rays before they become problematic can save you money in the long run. At Bijan Family Dental Practice, we use digital x-rays, which have several advantages over traditional film-based x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to take x-rays with 1/5th the radiation that you would receive from traditional dental x-rays. The worry of exposure to excess radiation is eliminated.
Large on-screen x-rays make patient communication more effective. The immediate observation of the images on the screen allows us to discuss your dental health quickly and accurately. Read More About Digital X-rays
An intra-oral camera is a small, toothbrush shaped/sized camera. The video taken with it is projected onto a monitor that we adjust so you may view the feed. We frequently use inter-oral cameras to show patients issues that have arisen within their mouth, since it is not easy to view much of your own mouth using a mirror. With the camera we are able to show you in high detail what is going on in your mouth.
Computer Guided Surgery—NobelGuide
NobelGuide works to give us a live video overlay not only of your jaw, bone, and teeth but our drilling tools in relation to them. It shows us the exact angle, depth, and placement of every action we take in your mouth in real time. This gives us the ability to precisely control the placement of every procedure we perform. It has shown Significantly lower swelling, edema and pain, as well as use of analgesics, with guided flapless surgery compared with freehand surgery.
