Advanced Dental Technology
Our experienced team of doctors use state-of-the-art dental technology to make treatment more efficient and comfortable for patients. Below, you can read about some of the equipment that we use in our office.
Digital X-rays provide many advantages for both the patient and the dentist. Office visits are shorter, digital X-rays use 80% less radiation than film X-rays and the high quality images help us detect very small cavities.
The X-rays may be reviewed immediately on a computer monitor and allow us to show our patients any problematic areas, helping them understand any problem areas that require attention. Since digital X-rays don’t require chemicals as film X-rays do, they are also much easier on the environment.
Intraoral cameras are tiny handheld video cameras that project an enlarged image of the inside of your mouth onto a computer screen. This allows our patients to see what we see. We use the intraoral camera as an exam, treatment planning and educational tool for our patients.
Panoramic X-rays capture detailed, panoramic views of your mouth. This provides us with a detailed, high-quality image of the entire mouth that allows us to view parts of your jaw that can’t be seen with traditional dental X-rays. Panoramic X-rays are often used to evaluate jaw joint problems and plan orthodontic treatment, dentures and implants.
The Picasso laser is a soft-tissue diode laser that delivers very short pulses of laser energy. The result is a more comfortable dental procedure for our patients. In our practice, we use diode lasers to assist in killing bacteria and stimulating healthy gum growth and regeneration of healthy tissue. We also use the diode laser to perform gum line recontouring, and to eliminate decay under the gum line. With dental lasers, procedures are faster, there is less swelling, healing time decreases and there is no lasting discomfort after the procedure is completed.
The CAESY patient education system makes it easy to explain complicated dental procedures. With detailed, animated videos, you can learn exactly what is involved with your chosen procedures. We believe that education is key in the overall success of dental treatments.
Our doctors use electric handpieces to make routine dental procedures a more comfortable and relaxing experience. Electric handpieces offer increased efficiency and thoroughness, resulting in shorter procedures which means less time in the dental chair.
Our hygienists use ultrasonic scalers to gently remove hardened plaque and heavy stains from the surface of your teeth. As the ultrasonic scaler vibrates, it produces sound waves that painlessly break apart stubborn calculus, which is then rinsed away.
With ClinCheck, Dr. Pham can create a custom 3D treatment plan for your Invisalign straightening program. Dr. Pham uses this software to design your custom aligners sequence and check that they are the optimum movements all before treatment even begins.
The Dental Vibe is an injection comfort system that uses gentle vibrations to stimulate the gum tissue around the insertion point, making injections much more comfortable on the patient.
