CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and is an in office machine that creates dental crowns, inlays, onlays and even porcelain veneers in a matter of minutes in the office. This allows for patients to have all of their work done in just one visit without needing to wait for the lab to return the teeth enhancements. We are able to restore cracked, chipped, broken or decayed teeth fast and effectively. The machine uses a 3D digital imaging system to take photos of your mouth to create the restorations. This means no goopy impressions need to be taken and no wait time from the lab. This also means no temporary restorations are needed because your permanent one is made in the office
Oral cancer screenings are not as regular or as well-known as annual mammograms for breast cancer, or detecting unusual spots for skin cancer. Oral cancer is just as important to detect as other cancers, and is done so in office using the VELscope® Oral Cancer detector. With this device, oral cancer that is naked to the eye can be detected in the very early stages using a UV light. Oral cancer screenings are slowly becoming a normal part of every dental exam, especially in older patients. Oral cancer can happen to anyone but is especially common in smokers and drinkers. It is better to know you have cancer than to not know. Get yourself checked today.
It is uncommon to go to a dentist office that still uses film x-rays when it comes to dental work. With digital x-rays, the patients get results faster and easier than ever, downsizing the time they spend in the dental chair. Digital x-rays also produce 80% less radiation than standard old x-rays. This makes the visit safer for the patient and all employees. With digital x-rays, your dentist will be able to detect any cavities or underlying dental problems that may not be present to the naked eye. Digital x-rays are also easy to send off to insurance companies when approval is needed.
Intraoral cameras are a recent technology that gives dentists the ability to view an entire mouth and at angles that have never been looked at. This gives the dentist a closer look at any problems or potential issues taking place in your mouth. These images provide more information for the dentist to create better treatment plans and options. It is also beneficial to insurance companies who need evidence for covering certain procedures.
