State-of-the-Art Dental Technology
Hi-Tech Dentistry Austin is a pen-like probe that sends a safe laser beam into the tooth and checks its health. This allows us to determine if decay is lurking beneath the apparently healthy tooth surface.This technology allows us to catch tooth decay at an earlier stage, before the tooth is destroyed from the inside out.
We use the Planmeca Promax Cone Beam imaging system to take 360 ° 3D images of the skull, jaw and mouth, right in our office. Being able to see the jaw or any tooth joint in a 360 ° view is a huge advantage which greatly improves the accuracy of many procedures such as dental implants.
Guided Dental Implants
Digital x-ray machine emits much less radiation than traditional x-ray machines. It allows the doctor and patient to see small details like cavities beginning between the teeth, so both can see exactly what work needs to be done. It allows a much more accurate diagnosis and helps set the patient at ease.
Restorations are milled from a single block of high-quality ceramic, a substance that is particularly compatible with the body and that has the same characteristics as normal, healthy dental enamel. CEREC ceramic expands in the same way as teeth do, and because it comes from a single block, a CEREC restoration is less prone to cracks and flaws than other types of restoration.
Our patients routinely comment on how comfortable and gentle their treatments are. It evenly flows into the system so that only the exact part of the mouth being treated is numbed, and it does it with such accuracy that it is in fact comfortable.
We also uses electric handpieces for quieter drilling, and added control. Electric hand pieces are faster, more efficient and more comfortable, making it easier on the patient.
Guided Implant Dentistry is a system that makes it possible for a dentist to place implants at exactly the right angle and depth in your jaw.
Using our in-office CEREC laboratory, we can create crowns, veneers, onlays and inlays in only one visit.
It starts with 3D Images that show the dentist the details he needs to place high-quality implants. This system enables him to see every facet of your jaw so he can determine the exact right location for the implant, as well as the shape and size that will fit best for your mouth.
The Wand– Injection System– pain-free injections
We will create a surgical guide to make the implant placement procedure go as smoothly as possible. Surgical guides are computer-designed devices that fit over the gums and teeth, providing protection and a precise angle for the proper placement of an implant.
We get an exact picture of what is going on in your mouth, from every angle, with cutting-edge 3D images.
One-visit Crowns, Veneers, Onlays & Inlays
We take a 3-dimensional photo of your tooth and custom-craft, using computer-assisted design, a perfectly molded restoration. Minutes later we bond your final restorations in place.
We continually stay on the cutting edge of technology, equipping our practice with tools to make your dental care higher quality, more aesthetic and natural and to provide a gentle and comfortable experience. By incorporating the latest technologies available in dentistry today, we can handle all of your treatment needs in one office.
With an intraoral camera our staff can see everything that is going on in your mouth. It’s the size and shape of a dental mirror with a built-in light source and can zoom in up to 25 times magnification. The images are then displayed on a television or computer monitor.
Dental Lasers are a revolutionary new technology for dentistry. We also use lasers for some of the more complex dental implant surgeries. With laser dentistry, we can make treatments faster, more effective and with the least amount of post-operative discomfort.
Ultrasonic Scalpel, Cone Beam 3D Scanner
he panoramic x-ray gives a broad overview of the entire mouth. It is also used for evaluating patients with present or past TMJ or jaw joint problems, with removable dentures, dental implants, braces, impacted teeth or any recent trauma to the face or teeth.
DIAGNOdent– Early Detection of Decay
ur ultrasonic surgical hand piece uses gentle sound waves to cut bone and gum, giving a precision cut that reduces bleeding, and requires less healing time as compared to a scalpel. We will implement the ultrasonic scalpel in select treatments including sinus lifts and bone grafting, and even for more complex dental implant procedures.
Electric Hand Pieces
iezo ultrasonic scalers effectively remove plaque, tartar and calculus from the surface of teeth, and deep clean the gums. Ultrasonic scalers emit high-frequency vibrations to break down the hard stains and buildup. Our ultrasonic scalers are easily adjustable to be more comfortable for patients with sensitive teeth.
