Advanced Technology

h-xray1

Dr. Vakharia and her staff take great pride in providing our patients with high-quality dental care by using the most advanced technology available today! We believe our precise combination of knowledge, skill and technology enables us to deliver optimum results for each of our patients.

Electric Handpieces

Precision dentistry is important to us and that is why we use electric handpieces for our restorative procedures. Electric handpieces are more precise than dental drills and have less vibration and less noise.

Digital Imaging

Dr. Vakharia utilizes digital imaging technologies within the office. Using high-resolution digital imaging to capture detailed images of your mouth enables us to see areas that we normally would not be able to see. It helps us detect cavities in between your teeth as well as better examine the roots and nerves of your teeth. With digital imaging, we can maintain sharp, accurate records and keep you thoroughly informed of your treatment progress.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays, or radiographs, are also used in our office to provide us with invaluable information about your oral and dental health. By placing a wireless sensor in your mouth and using high-tech computer software, we are able to generate digital images of your mouth significantly faster than traditional X-rays. Not only are they friendly to the environment, they are much safer than traditional X-rays, reducing your radiation exposure by 90 percent!

Laser Dentistry

We use laser dentistry in our practice for hard and soft tissue procedures. The lasers used are narrow beams of light energy that can penetrate the tissue, producing the ability to vaporize, remove or shape soft tissues such as the gums, cheeks and tongue. It can also penetrate hard tissue and remove decay.

With laser dentistry, there is no need for the dental drill or local anesthesia in some cases! Laser dentistry can be used to correct many problems, from uncovering partially erupted wisdom teeth to removing lip pulls in orthodontic patients. Lasers can also be used for pediatric procedures, periodontal treatment, whitening teeth and obtaining small tissue samples in biopsy procedures to detect lesions or potential tumors in the mouth.

Using laser dentistry as opposed to other forms of surgery does have its advantages. Lasers can control the amount of bleeding during the treatment and can sometimes remove gum tissue without causing bleeding. In laser dentistry, there may also be less swelling and pain following the surgery as the laser can seal blood vessels and nerve endings.

Intraoral Cameras

The standard X-ray is essential in determining any dental problems you may have, but unfortunately, it may not reveal everything happening inside your mouth. We are proud to use an intraoral camera in our office.

An intraoral camera can project an image of your tooth onto a monitor, so you can see the problem in a magnified version and how we can correct the issue. It can also identify problems that may not be detected by the general means of examination, including cracks in your fillings or fractured teeth. Similar to the size and design of a dental mirror, an intraoral camera allows you to make better decisions regarding your treatment as you can see the same things we see.

CEREC

We are proud to provide CEREC 3-D Technology to our patients in need of restorations. The CEREC system has revolutionized the dental field by meeting the needs of our patients in a more convenient manner. Gone are the days where the patient must return for multiple visits to complete a restoration. CEREC Technology can design, fabricate and place a ceramic restoration in just one visit!

How does CEREC work?

This simple process only takes four steps! First, the decay or old filling is removed and then, the teeth are prepared to be digitally photographed by a 3-D camera, which eliminates those messy, cumbersome traditional impressions. Next, computer-aided design (CAD) software is used to design and create a customized restoration specifically to closely match your teeth and meet your specific dental needs. Finally, the restoration will be attached to the tooth and checked for position, placement and bite function. When you leave, you already have your permanent restoration – there is no need for temporaries or follow-up appointments!

What are the advantages of CEREC?

CEREC holds several advantages over conventional restoration systems, including:

  • Your restoration is started and completed on the same appointment – no wait times, no temporary crowns, no return visits, no hassle!
  • The entire process is usually completed in less than an hour.
  • Less need for local anesthetic and fewer shots.
  • All CEREC restorations are made from natural-looking, tooth-colored porcelain material that is metal-free, very bio-compatible and plaque-resistant.
  • In many cases, healthier tooth structure can be saved, since the restoration can be used in place of a full crown.
