Our Dental Technology
The Right Dental Technology Offers Advanced Care And Comfort
Making every trip to the dentist’s office a positive one takes the right team and the right approach to care. We take pride in delivering on these fronts, and dental technology can help with both. The different forms of technology we use at The Right Dentist help with your evaluations as well as restorative services. They can provide us with detailed information regarding your health and the measurements for any restorations you receive. They can also make preventive and restorative care surprisingly comfortable for you!
By using an in-office 3D printer to create restorations and appliances for our patients, we can shorten treatment times while delivering important personalized support. We have the means to capture digital impressions used in the production of different appliances, which we use to make sure the 3D printer provides something that fits securely, looks attractive and natural, and offers long-term support. The restorations and appliances we can create includes the following:
- Dental bridges and crowns
- Night guards for TMJ treatment
- Indirect bonding trays
- Denture bases
- Castable crowns and prosthodontic restoration frameworks
- Dental and orthodontic treatment models
Through 3D panoramic imaging with cone beam technology, we can capture the comprehensive views of your teeth and oral structures needed to plan your care. Cone beam imaging removes the need for uncomfortable manual impressions, making this important early step in treatment more pleasant. We can use this technology to help:
- Plan dental implant placement
- Study your face and jaw
- Diagnose problems like tooth decay, including those issues that will require root canal therapy
- Review dental and facial trauma
- Plan orthodontic treatment
- Evaluate your issues with TMJ disorder
In other words, this provides key information as we go about diagnosing problems and planning treatment!
By using digital X-rays instead of traditional technology, we shorten the time it takes to capture images of your tooth structure and produce less radiation while we do so. The images we need are taken with digital tools that can put images on a screen promptly, which cuts down on the time it takes for us to see what is happening with your oral health. In addition to checking the tooth structure’s health and looking for cavities, we use digital X-rays to check the status of roots; track the development of growing smiles; review potential tumors, cysts, and abscesses; identify bone loss; and more.
With an in-office milling machine, we can create lifelike dental crowns and other restorations on-site and in one appointment. This means you do not have to depend on a third party for a crucial part of your treatment, and you will not have to wait on that entity to produce the restoration you need to complete your care. We rely on CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology to gather all of the information needed to produce the appliances patients need.
Close reviews of your teeth and oral structures can reveal early warning signs of trouble. We can use an intraoral camera during your checkup to carefully inspect areas that are difficult to see without assistance. By doing so, we can capture vivid views of your teeth and gums to diagnose problems that could otherwise go unnoticed. That early detection means early treatment takes place to minimize the impact your condition has on your smile and well-being.
iTero® Digital Scanner
We depend on the iTero® digital scanner to help with the creation of appliances like clear aligners as well as for diagnosing active oral health issues. This technology makes it possible for us to produce 3D images within the mouth and assess the differences between healthy and unhealthy tissues. We can even use the details we capture to show you a preview of your smile after completing a service we are planning!
