OUR TECHNOLOGY

Our office features the latest state of the art technology to provide you with better diagnosis and treatment. We pride ourselves on being able to implement the latest technology in our field.

Examples of advanced technology in dentistry available from Dr. Rose at GOODHEALTH.dental include:

  • CEREC CadCam 3D Technology for making one-hour crowns
  • Computerized Dental Radiography – reduces radiation by 90%
  • Advanced Laser and Electrosurgery – for soft tissues
  • Laser Detection of Cavities
  • Intra-oral Video Imaging
  • Interactive Patient Education
  • Holistic Laser and Computer Controlled Root Canal Therapy
  • Facial EMG, 3D Jaw Tracking, Joint Sonography – for TMJ diagnosis
  • TENS – for muscle relaxation
  • Cold laser – These lasers are used in the treatment of pain and inflammation.They are non invasive. Used for Headaches, TMJ, and jaw soreness.
  • Ozone Therapy – Used to treat infection and inflammation. Can be used as a tooth disinfectant before placing fillings. May be used for doing Holisitc Root Canal Therapy.

Cerec

Remember the days of going to the dentist for crowns (caps), and having to go through the gaggy, messy impressions?

A temporary crown was placed that always got loose or fell off at the most inopportune times. Then three weeks later you had to go back to the dentist, get numbed up again and had the crown put in. Many times these new crowns looked opaque, with metal showing, and was anything but natural looking.

Major Technical Advances In Dentistry

Dentistry has made many major technological advances in recent years, but one of the greatest is something called CEREC. This is a state of the art technology that uses optical imaging of the tooth instead of impressions. Then the crown is designed on a computer using 3D CAD/CAM technology and milled chair side while you wait. The whole process takes no more than an hour.

CEREC restorations have many advantages. It takes one visit to make a variety of restorations. The new milled tooth is all ceramic. There is no mercury or metal in them, and they are very accurate. Because they are bonded to the existing tooth, many times there is minimal tooth reduction, leaving more of the healthy tooth intact. A variety of restorations can be made including inlays, on-lays, crowns, and veneers.

CEREC crowns save you the extra visit of having the crown placed as it is done in one visit. During the milling time, other fillings or even another crown can be started. This technology is proven with over 4 million restorations made worldwide. Next time you need a crown, ask for CEREC.


INTRA-ORAL VIDEO IMAGING

One of the best advances in dentistry is in the field of video imaging. We are proud to be one of the few offices to have such a technology networked throughout our office.

Intra-oral Video Imaging is a high-powered camera adapted especially for use inside the mouth. It brings magnified images of the teeth, gums, and other intra-oral structures. It helps us diagnose potential problems such as cracked fillings, fractures in teeth, and the beginnings of decay.

With this technology, we can diagnose potential problems before they can cause greater problems. This usually means less extensive and expensive treatment in the long run.

With high magnification cameras, we can diagnose cracks, decay, fractures, and other problems that cannot be visualized with the naked eye. This means taking care of problems before they get more extensive and expensive.

COMPUTERIZED X-RAYS

This new technology where x-rays are taken through the computer. Our office is proud to be one of the few offices to have such technology.

Safer
X-rays play an invaluable role in the diagnosis of dental problems. But many people are concerned about exposure to radiation. CDR eliminated these worries because we are able to lower the dose of radiation by 90%

Better
As accurate as conventional x-rays – yet reveals things film cannot. The CDR image can be magnified 300X it’s normal size to enhance diagnosis. Images can be digitally improved to reveal hidden problems and areas of concern that cannot be seen with regular x-rays.

Faster
Images come up instantaneously. This means more time in patient care and less time developing film in the darkroom.

Smarter
No harmful waste. The CDR system uses no film or chemicals, so we don’t have to worry about disposing of hazardous processing waste. That’s good news for the environment.


ADVANCED LASER TECHNOLOGY

Soft Tissue Crown Lengthening

Benefits
This procedure allows facilitates immediate impressions for crown and bridge procedures. Redundant or hyperplastic tissue can be removed within a bloodless field, with minimal – if any post-operative pain. The outcome increases the length of the clinical crown for improved retention and esthetic harmony.

Advantages
Compared to traditional surgical techniques, this procedure can be done without scalpel or sutures. Final impressions for restorative procedures can be completed in the same appointment. Ideal tissue architecture can be established without shrinkage. The technique leads to predictable results time after time.

Gingivoplasty

Benefits
This procedure allows facilitates immediate impressions for crown and bridge procedures. Redundant or hyperplastic tissue can be removed within a bloodless field, with minimal – if any post-operative pain. The outcome increases the length of the clinical crown for improved retention and esthetic harmony.

Advantages
Compared to traditional surgical techniques, this procedure can be done without scalpel or sutures. Final impressions for restorative procedures can be completed in the same appointment. Ideal tissue architecture can be established without shrinkage. The technique leads to predictable results time after time.

Lengthening And Gingivectomy With SoftLase™

Benefits
Improves Phase I periodontal therapy. Used as an adjunct to traditional scaling and root planning in order to reduce pocket depths.

Advantages
Allows a non-surgical approach, gaining easier access to deeper calculus deposits after ablation of diseased epithelium and hemorrhage control.

TMJ DENTISTRY

Also known as Neuromuscular Dentistry – this is an approach to treating patients in a very comprehensive manner. It does not only take into account the teeth, but also the muscles and the nerves that are associated with the muscles. Many problems such as TMJ, headaches, head and neck pains, Sleep apnea and snoring can be successfully addressed and treated using a neuromuscular approach.

When the jaw opens and closes, it would like to do so in a manner where the muscles can work their best. Factors such as the bite will dictate how the muscles work as the mouth needs to close for swallowing and biting. If the muscles and teeth are not in harmony, then stresses develop in the jaws. These translate into muscles spasm, worn teeth, jaw joint problems, sore necks, ringing in the ears, and overall facial pain. Bringing the jaws and bite back in harmony with the muscles can rid yourself of these aches and pains without the use of medication.

We will use sophisticated diagnostic equipment to find the most muscle relaxed position for your bite. This includes Joint Sonography, Muscle Electromyography readings, 3- Dimensional Jaw Tracking, and the use of a TENS unit.

Joint Sonography
This will allow Dr. Rose to listen to the jaw joints during function. This will help in the diagnosis of joint sounds such as clicking, popping, and grinding. It is important to find a bite trajectory that is harmonious with the muscles so the joint quiets down.

Muscle Electromyography
This measures the electrical activity of the muscles as they work and rest. It help shows healthy muscle activity vs. muscles that are fatigued or in spasm. This helps in the diagnosis for making an orthotic or splint to correct the problem and bring health back to the muscles.

Three-Dimensional Jaw Tracking
This allows us to see the jaw movement in action. We can see if the range of motion of the jaw is limited, the speed at which the jaw opens and closes, and where the jaw would ideally like to be.


TENS

This is Transcutaneous Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation. We do this to relax the muscles so we can see what they look like if they were healthy.  TENSing will increase the blood flow to the muscles. This not only relaxes them but also helps rid the muscles of toxins such a lactic acid. TENSing will also reduce pain by stimulating the release of endorphins in the body.

Once we have completed these diagnostic tests, we can see where your most muscle relaxed bite should be and build you an orthotic at that bite position.
