The purpose of dental technology is to give you better dental care. Technology can make procedures easier on you, often keeping you more comfortable and shortening your appointment. You may even experience better recovery with the use of some of this technology.
Below are some of the technologies we’re excited about sharing with you at Aspen Dental of Cache Valley.
Our soft-tissue and hard-tissue lasers can clean and reshape gums as well as prepare your teeth for cavity fillings. They can stimulate new gum tissue growth. They’re so precise that they also help us to save more of your natural tissue during fillings and other procedures.
Lasers also result in a shorter recovery time and less bleeding, so you can get back to your normal routine sooner!
Digital x-rays instantly put images of the inside of your teeth on a screen, so you and your dentist can see them together. Plus, they use about 80% less radiation than traditional film x-rays, making digital x-rays safer than traditional ones. By seeing inside your teeth, roots, jaws, and gums, we can detect and quickly treat many dental problems.
With these tiny, powerful cameras, we can take and enlarge color pictures of the inside of your mouth. They help us accurately diagnose dental problems, and they let you see what we see, which allows you to better understand what we’re going to work on.
This type of x-ray creates a computerized 3D model of your teeth and mouth. These computerized models offer a high degree of accuracy, so we can correctly diagnose your oral health issues.
This remarkable scanner also helps your dentist prepare for efficient, safe implant dentistry, impacted wisdom teeth removal, and other surgeries.
In-Office Crown Machine
If you want to get a dental crown in just one appointment, we can build your crown here in our office with our crown milling machine. This saves you from making multiple trips to get your crowns. It also means you can enjoy your new smile immediately!
DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Indicator
We can detect cavities early with the DIAGNOdent. Small cavities show up clearly under its laser light. Then we can treat the cavities before they have advanced very far, saving you from more extensive procedures.
This injection system uses computer assistance to give more comfortable injections of anesthetic. The numbness of the anesthetic stays only in the area it needs to be in, and the injection itself is an easier experience for you.
The near-infrared light in this machine makes cavities and other damage appear as dark areas. It’s easy for both you and your dentist to see them together before we work on restoring your tooth.
You can get a new filling or dental crown based on the information from CariVu and enjoy a restored tooth!
