Advances in Dentistry
Today’s dental patients are some of the luckiest in history, given all the advances in dentistry in recent years.
Dental technology continues to get better, and this means that patients spend less time in the dental chair. It also means that procedures are less invasive and more comfortable.
As your dentist in Lockport, we are pleased to provide the latest advances in dentistry so our patients’ visits are more comfortable than ever. We provide the following technology to improve the patient experience in our office.
A surgical telescope enables Dr. Kaplansky to see better during dental procedures. Patients get more accurate treatment that is also less invasive.
Sonic-Activated Filling System
Old-fashioned amalgam fillings are a thing of the past. We use composite fillings that match the color your tooth enamel. Sonic-activated fillings make placing fillings faster and easier than ever—and there is the added benefit of denser, stronger fillings that are less prone to sensitivity.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography 3-D Scanner
A cone beam computed tomography is much like a CAT scan for the dental office. Because it can provide three-dimensional images of your teeth and jaws, the machine is used in complex dental cases, such as dental implants, root canals, and orthodontics. Additionally, since the imaging is so precise, treatment outcomes are much better.
Computerized Tooth Shade Matching
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, the shade of the restoration is important; it must match your natural teeth if it is to truly enhance your appearance. VITA Easyshade® uses advanced technology to replicate the shade of your natural teeth. It is easy to use and completely comfortable for the patient.
