North Palm Beach Dentist
Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:
Digital X-rays allows us to take magnified images of your teeth and display them on a computer screen so we can develop a treatment plan.
With digital x-rays, we can view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your dental treatment.
Digital x-rays require much less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.
The intra-oral camera is about the size and shape of a pen. It is used to record images of your teeth, gums, mouth, and tongue from inside your mouth. Due to its small size and sleek design, it is comfortable, easy to use, and able to view a wide range of angles. The intra-oral camera is a safe and effective tool that can be used with patients of every age.
The intra-oral camera is a highly valuable resource for both diagnosis and treatment planning. Each time we use the intra-oral camera, a new disposable cover is employed. This ensures your health and safety at all times. After your exam, images captured by the intra-oral camera may be digitally stored, printed out, or deleted.
The Cavitron is a handheld device used in periodontal deep cleaning. While scaling can be completed by hand, the Cavitron uses ultrasonic technology to remove calculus from teeth and gums quickly, gently and effectively.
With the Cavitron, patient enjoy a more comfortable experience and time spent scaling and polishing is decreased.
Rotary Endodontics Handpiece
A rotary endodontics handpiece is a tool designed to be used in root canal therapy. By using this handpiece, we can complete the treatment gently and efficiently. This allows you to have a quicker and more comfortable treatment experience.
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening Light
This handheld scope scans the tissues in the mouth using a special blue-spectrum light to detect early stages of oral cancer. This light creates distinct visual patterns on health and unhealthy tissues through natural fluorescence. With this screening light, we can more accurately discover potential oral cancers in early, highly treatable stages.
Our Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) unit sends gentle stimulating pulses along the surface of the skin and through the nerves. These pulses allow us to diagnose and conservatively treat disorders of the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ).
AcceleDent® is a small device that may be recommended for promoting accelerated tooth movement during orthodontic treatment. Whether you are using fixed braces or clear aligners, AcceleDent® has been shown to reduce both discomfort and duration of treatment.
The AcceleDent® device uses SoftPulse Technology® – a form of micropulse vibrations – to gently stimulate tooth movement. These precisely calibrated pulses allow your orthodontic treatment to be completed up to 50% faster than with braces or clear aligners alone.
To use, simply insert the mouthpiece and bite down. Turn on the activator for its full 20-minute timer. Repeat daily, as directed.
