At Vaccaro Aesthetic and Family Dentistry, we believe that modern technology improves the dental experience for everyone. We want all of our patients to have a healthy, confident smile, and we can provide our best service when we use the latest leading-edge technology and materials.
Here are some of the ways we incorporate technology into our dental office on a daily basis.
- 3-D Cone Beam
- CEREC Crowns
- Digital Impressions
- Digital Records
- Digital Sensors
- Digital X-Rays
- Intraoral Camera
- Panoramic X-Rays
3-D Cone Beam
With this technology, we can get a three-dimensional digital view of your teeth and jaw. It enables us to plan and execute more accurate dental implant placement and achieve better outcomes for root canals.
Getting traditional dental crowns always meant at least two trips to the dentist—one to have your tooth treated and a mold made and the other to have your permanent crown placed. With the CEREC Primescan, we can do the entire process in one appointment with our in-house milling machine. CEREC makes beautiful ceramic crowns, so there are no gray margins at the bottom as there is when metal is used.
If you have ever had a traditional impression made, you know how unpleasant it is to have the goopy paste in your mouth. We can completely avoid that now with digital impressions. They also provide us with better accuracy by eliminating the possibility of air bubbles and distortion.
Your privacy is important to us and is just one of the reasons we keep records digitally. In addition, digital records mean we can easily access your history when needed. If there is ever a natural disaster, such as a flood or fire, your records remain safe—and private.
Whenever possible, we like to incorporate technology that helps us get through procedures more quickly, and digital sensors are one way we can do this. Digital sensors also enhance image quality as well as patient comfort.
Digital x-rays are an essential diagnostic tool because they enable us to see what is not visible to the naked eye. When we can detect problems in their earliest stages, we can recommend treatment that is less invasive—and usually less expensive.
Digital x-rays are also safer than their traditional film x-ray counterparts—and better for the environment since no chemicals are needed for development.
We want to help our patients make informed decisions about their dental treatment, and with an intraoral camera, we can show you in real-time what your dentist sees. This improves patient understanding of treatment recommendations.
Panoramic x-rays provide your dentist with a flat image of your mouth, showing the temporomandibular joints and nasal and sinus areas. This is yet another valuable diagnostic tool that enables us to discover issues earlier rather than later.
