Precise Implants Implant Dentistry Reston VA
We are proud to be one of the first practices in the country to
use Cone Beam™ digital imaging technology. Think of this as a
three-dimensional X-ray that is FAR more accurate than
traditional X-rays, takes much less time, and does all this with
much less radiation exposure.
A great advantage of using ultra cone beam images when
diagnosing patients and evaluating treatment options is the
dentist's ability to clearly see the patient's anatomy in 3-D,
instead of flat, two-dimensional images. This leads to much
greater accuracy for all dental treatment, especially implant
placement and any oral surgeries.
Laser Scanner Finds Ultrasmall Cavities Years Earlier Preventive Dentistry Reston VA
Have you ever had a dentist
find a cavity and place a large
filling, and wondered why the filling is so large if the cavity
wasn't there just six months before? The cavity was there six
months before — it just wasn't big enough to show on X-rays, and
it wasn't visible to the dentist yet. The Laser Scanner can find
cavities years earlier, when the small cavity can be removed and
repaired with a small invisible bonded filling. Sometimes
patients complain of tooth sensitivity, or mild to severe pain,
yet X-rays and examination cannot pinpoint the source. Patients
are often given sensitivity toothpaste to deal with the problem.
However, sometimes, dentists have to perform root canals to get
the pain or sensitivity to stop, when the actual source turned
out to be undetectable decay. The laser scanner can detect
previously undetected decay and, once identified, allow us to
remove the discomfort and leave you with a healthy smile.
Camera Makes You a
Part of the Team Dentistry
We work hand-in-hand with our patients to
create a bond of teamwork. One of the ways we bring this about
is through the use of a high-tech tool, the intra-oral camera.
This amazing device is a miniature video camera that displays a
closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for
yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing
fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision.
You’ll love how this works!
Isolite™ – An
Advance in Patient Comfort
We are very pleased to offer an incredible new technology that
makes your dental care much more comfortable. It’s called
Isolite. Basically, it’s a suction device and a brilliant light
that illuminates the oral cavity and eliminates shadows.
dentistry requires a dry “field” for best results. The Isolite
keeps the teeth and gums dry and often eliminates the need for
the bulky rubber dam. What does this mean for you? Patients
spend about a third less time in the chair.
No More ‘Fat
Lips’ or Numbness After Treatment!
When a patient leaves the dental chair after routine care, they
are often “numb” for 3 to 5 hours. It’s hard to talk or eat and
the face and lips feel “fat.” What if that didn’t have to happen
anymore? We are very pleased to offer our patients OraVerse™.
What this amazing product does is reverse the anesthetic after
your treatment is finished. It takes about fifteen minutes to
get a patient back to normal. So if the thought of being numb
for hours after your treatment makes you uncomfortable – we can
take care of that for you!
