Special Abilities and High Tech Dentistry
By having been educated at one of Europe's top dental schools and having participated in post doctoral programs at UCLA and USC I supply knowledge of special treatment approaches used in both, Europe as well as in the US. This combined background enables me to treat you in the best and most professional manner possible.
We use the following High Tech Equipment
Video monitor built in a digital pair of glasses Watch your favorite DVD movie with surround sound while you are getting dental work done. This is an incredible tool, which enables you to relax and be in another world while I work on your teeth.
Intra-Oral Camera The intra-Oral camera allows you to see your teeth on a plasma TV. Would you like to see why your tooth has cracked or chipped? How does your old silver filling look like? Watch the camera walking through your mouth and watch clear video pictures. Understand the dental conditions in the mouth.
Drill-less Dentistry Air abrasion and laser dentistry are the names of the new dental technologies. "Drill free cavity preparation" such as air abrasion gives the dentist the ability to remove cavities without the use of traditional drilling instruments (dental handpieces) .Therefore the noise of the conventional dental handpiece is eliminated and the dentist can remove small cavities without having to give an injection! It uses micro particles with compressed airnd abrades away the decay in a "pain free" and "noise free" environment. Laser dentistry is also used for root canals, treatment of gum disease and removal of the gummy smile.
Electric Handpieces Electric Handpieces versus air driven handpieces have a much higher torque and power, therefore allowing cutting the tooth much more precisely and faster and cleaner. Crowns fit better, require very little if any adjustment at the seat appointment. Electric handpieces are used in europe since 1960 and just got introduced to the American market in 2000.
Laser Cavity Detector This is the newest technology from Germany in the detection of cavities. A Laser beam analyses your tooth density and detects cavities at their earliest stage. Where X rays have their limitations, this tool is helping the dentist to diagnose to perfection.
Magnification I use a special pair of high magnification loops (glasses) that enables me to perform perfect, precise and accurate work. When working with precision loops, even the slightest inaccuracy becomes visible, making the fit of crowns and bridges superior.
Application of the Ozone
Ozone will kill the bacteria causing the dental decay. Once the bacteria are killed, bacterial acids are no longer produced. This will stop any further damage.It will kill also aid in the applications of root canals and gum disease as it kills all bacterias inside the canal and inside the gum effectively.
