Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays. The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment. Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film. Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care. It’s also a very green technology. By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste it is better for you and the environment!
Hard and Soft Tissue Lasers
Lasers can be used for a variety of dental procedures. Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Lasers can be used to specifically target soft tissue lesions or growths and remove them without disturbing healthy tissue. Bleeding is so well controlled with Lasers that sutures (stitches) are usually not needed. In addition, the removal of the tissue is so fast and painless that injections are usually not needed either. Lasers can be used for crown lengthening, tooth whitening, and for gum surgery to improve loose or diseased gum attachment to the tooth. Minimally invasive laser treatment, where indicated, can avoid more complicated surgical procedures
Dr. Froum and his staff offer Dental Laser treatment and will answer your questions regarding this treatment for your problems.
Simplant Comprehensive 3D System
The Simplant 3D System allows the office to create a 3D implant plan using information from a (CB)CT scan, such as bone volume and quality, neighboring teeth, the alveolar nerve, and sinuses. The doctor can then create a virtual plan of the implants based on your situation, and transfer the digital plan to surgery utilizing a Simplant Guide.
An Osstell IDx meter helps the doctor determine implant stability, and assess the progress of osseointegration without jeopordizing the healing process.
Halimeter® Breath Test
The Interscan Halimeter® is an instrument that helps diagnose and treat chronic bad breath.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer affects thousands of Americans yearly. We use the latest technology to detect changes in oral tissue consistencies and/or lesions. A UV light is shined into the mouth to detect unhealthy tissue. Healthy tissue looks lighter under the light while spots of bad tissue appear dark. With early detection, cancer may be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives.
