In addition to fillings, bonding, and sealants the dentists at 585 Dentist offer technologically advanced procedures unique to their office. Some of these procedures include all- porcelain restorations, same day CEREC crowns and implants.
Use of the technology of CEREC changes the experience of getting a crown, for the better. Cerec eliminates the need to involve an outside laboratory. This technology brings more control and precision of the fabrication of your crown into the dental office. The machine utilizes CAD-CAM technology to eliminate the need for impressions and temporary crowns. Your first crown appointment is your last. You leave from your first appointment with your permanent crown.
Implant placement is becoming more of a necessity rather than a luxury as we move into the future. As our society ages and becomes more aware of their medical and dental health, implants become more of an intricate piece of the dental office. Implants replace missing teeth. They replace the need for a bridge and can also replace the need of fabricating and wearing a partial or complete denture. Replacing teeth with a fixed restoration makes a drastic difference in the patient’s mouth. Not only does your oral health improve but also your nutritional needs are maintained.
The Galileos is a new advance in dentistry, allowing the practitioner to see images not in 2-dimensions like traditional digital x-rays but in 3 dimensions. Our ability to diagnose and treat is brought to a new standard of care. This technology allows us to precisely diagnose any dental disease present. It also affords us the ability to see the dimensions of the bone in the maxilla and mandible with accuracy, to be able to use precision when placing dental implants. Galileos sets new standards combining the lowest radiation dosage with superior image quality.
Invisalign uses removable, invisible and comfortable trays to align the teeth. This is a great alternative to straightening your teeth with metal brackets and wire.
Digital x-rays allows the convenience of viewing the image immediately on a computer monitor next to the dental chair. Digital x-rays are not only a faster way for the dental team to diagnose and treat your needs, the x-rays are actually safer. The amount of radiation exposure with digital x-rays is a fraction of what was needed with the old convention method.
Our panoramic unit is also digital, so it utilizes all of the benefits of digital technology. This type of x-ray picture allows the doctors to get a picture of all of your teeth at once. This affords them the ability to visualize areas of the mouth that are hard to see with the conventional x-ray method where the image sensor is placed in the mouth (intraorally). Panoramic x-rays allows the doctors to see the bones of the jaw joint, can see impacted or erupted wisdom teeth (third molars) and see any other issues that may be going on with your teeth, jaw bone or sinus.
The third molars in the back of your mouth are known as wisdom teeth. When these molars begin to grow, they normally don’t have enough room to grow properly and can create problems and pain.
If you have experienced any of the following in the back of your mouth, you may need to have your wisdom teeth extracted (as described by the AMA):
- Damage to other teeth
- Gum disease
- Extensive tooth decay
