3D Intra-Oral Scanning
Our office features the revolutionary intra-oral scanning device, 3Shape Trios. This amazing piece of equipment allows us to take photos of your teeth and stitch them together to create a 3D rendering of your own mouth!
Not only does this allow you to see your teeth, you are able to completely understand your problems in a very visual way. There is no more second-guessing whether your crown is actually broken, or if your gums are really inflamed and you need extra cleanings. All this can be shown on your own teeth.
- This tool allows us to be completely transparent with what treatment you may need, and why you need it. The doctors discussion with each patient is specifically tailored to show you your problems in a way you understand.
Implant Placement Planning Software
Implant placement planning software lets Dr. Radu precisely determine the angle and depth to place an implant, increasing the accuracy of the surgery and decreasing time patients spend in the dental chair.
T-Scan Bite Analysis
Your bite is an important aspect of your overall oral health. A poor bite can cause numerous problems, including excessive and rapid teeth wear, and jaw dysfunction. Using the T-Scan, Dr. Radu can evaluate your bite and see what treatments need to be done to balance it.
Lasers are used in various dental procedures to provide more efficient, effective and comfortable treatment. When using lasers, there is less need for anesthesia, and it is more gentle on the tissues of the mouth compared to conventional surgical methods.
Extraoral Digital Photography
Dr. Radu will often use digital photography and computer design software to prepare a virtual preview of your cosmetic makeover before starting any treatment. Together you and Dr. Radu can work together using this tool manipulate the way your smile will look after the planned treatments are completed.
Dr. Radu uses computer-generated surgical guides, which are created to ensure accuracy in the surgical placement of your dental implants. Surgical guides make implant placement precise compared to other, more conventional methods of “freehand” implant placement.
Digital Panoramic X-rays capture a complete image of the teeth in panoramic view while using 80% less radiation than conventional X-ray machines. With panoramic X-rays, Dr. Radu can diagnose and plan various dental treatments with greater ease.
Digital X-rays are highly advanced, more comfortable and provide accurate results compared to conventional X-rays. Digital X-rays also allow Dr. Radu to show his patients their X-rays on computer monitors, which helps illustrate his diagnosis and treatment goals. Dr. Radu uses the DEXIS system, a leading brand in digital X-ray equipment.
Ultrasonic scalers use gentle, high-frequency vibrations to effectively break down and remove plaque and calculus without harming your teeth. Ultrasonic scaling is more comfortable than conventional hand scaling, and effectively removes more bacteria faster and more efficiently. We use the Piezoelectric unit, the most advanced ultrasonic scaler available.
