6. You Benefit From the Latest Technology
If we could land men on the moon in 1969, shouldn't there be wonderful technology in the dental office in the 21st Century?
At my office, there is!
I've spared no time and expense in treating my clients with the best technology that's available today. Here's a sample of all the tools that make your visit the shortest, most pleasant and most effective it can be:
Amazing Diagnostic Tools
Intra-oral Camera--lets you see and understand what's going on
This is not only a diagnostic tool for me, but an educational supplement for you.
This camera looks like an oversized pen, and magnifies the surface areas of the teeth. It helps me to locate small pits and cracks that might be harboring disease. This up-close information is immediately available to both you and me on a TV monitor in the private room.
This visual feedback also helps you to see certain features in your mouth, and better understand my recommendations. For instance, it's possible to see the damage caused by old, metal amalgam fillings that expand and contract, and can cause cracking and breaking.
Ultra-High-Intensity Micro-Illumination Crack Detector--helps to catch problems while they're small
Frustrated by the inadequate lighting of regular dental lights, I was one of the first doctors in the world to seek out and adopt new cordless LED ultra-high-powered lighting.
As we get older, cracks are more likely to form in our teeth. If not detected and treated, these cracks can lead to sudden fractures. In some cases, the treatment must be a root canal or even loss of the tooth.
My team and I use this new high-intensity micro-light that illuminates the teeth from the inside out! It allows these catastrophic cracks to be seen with the eye to minimize the loss of teeth and need for root canals.
This light is so strong it also allows me to see some types of decay that are difficult to detect even on x-ray. This great tool improves diagnosis, enhances accuracy, and most importantly reduces your time in the chair with surgery and other complex procedures.
Laser Cavity Detection--catches otherwise undetectable cavities very early
Detecting cavities is an inexact science. Fortunately, the best technology gives us a better view of disease at an earlier stage.
The laser system I use is a spectacular breakthrough in dental cavity detection. Before, nearly 50% of cavities went undetected until they led to root canals or even tooth loss. Now we can uncover disease more consistently and prevent significant tooth loss.
This special laser light harmlessly and precisely detects cavities. One of the most difficult areas to locate cavities is on the chewing areas of teeth and under and around metal fillings. The laser makes it possible for me to lift the veil on what used to be hidden areas of dental decay. All this is done safely, painlessly and without exposure to x-rays. In addition, this technology also means that only areas that truly have decay get treatment because all the 'guesswork' of previous cavity-detection techniques has been eliminated.
With Sedation Dentistry, You Feel Nothing!
Even the most fearful clients can say goodbye to the white knuckle experience of going to the dentist.
If you've avoided the dentist for years due to bad experiences in the past, you can now comfortably snooze through even the most complex care, thanks to Dr. Atcha Sedation Dentistry.
Complex treatment that used to require many visits or even months of treatment can now be completed in as little as one single visit with my methods. Experience Dr. Atcha Sedation Dentistry just once and you will never be afraid to go to the dentist again!
No-Drill Dentistry Means No needle, No Drill, and No Numbness
Our no-drill dentistry is a leap into the future that allows removal of dental decay without the dreaded whine of the drill and often without the needle, too!
The technology uses forced air and a safe, small particle substance to etch away decay rapidly and without the vibrations and heat of the dental drill. It can get at decay sooner because it is a fine spray, so you can keep your natural teeth for life. Few clients need anesthesia of any type.
Dental Laser Works With No Anesthesia
We use an advanced dental laser to gently and effectively treat the ravages of gum disease usually without numbing anesthesia. It helps stop the progression of tooth-destroying and bone-destroying disease. Laser treatment helps to eliminate the need for conventional, often painful, gum surgery in up to 75% of cases.
The laser can also be used to gently and artistically refashion the gum line. It can turn short teeth or a gummy smile into the smile you've always wanted. It also improves the result and accuracy of complicated dental procedures.
Needle Free Anesthetic Is a High-Tech Way to Feel Nothing
This new type of anesthetic allows numbing of gum tissue for comfort during deep cleanings, without the need for the old-fashioned "stick" of the dental needle.
It has been featured on NBC's "Today Show" and in "SELF Magazine". I am proud to be one of the first doctors to adopt its use.
Advanced Local Antibiotics Puts Treatment in Just the Spot That Needs It
For clients undergoing treatment to halt infections in the gum and bones that cause tooth loss, my hygienist often uses a type of antibiotic that is completely painless. This means the antibiotic is more effective because the infection is "hit hard" by its direct application to the problem. It also means that you don't expose your whole body to an antibiotic, so that medicine will remain more effective in the future against bacteria.
Medical Topical Anesthetic Pastes Ensure No More Pain
Say good-bye to feeling the dreaded anesthetic needle. I use a medical breakthrough that is a special medical grade anesthetic paste. It allows for completely painless injections. Clients can't believe that they just had a shot.
One-Visit Root Canals Are More Comfortable and Takes Less Time
The root canal is a procedure that has kept many people away from the dental office-including those who might not need one--due to the bad reputation behind the term. Much of the fear came not so much from the discomfort, but from the technique used. In many offices, it's still a manual and imprecise mechanical process.
At my office, I use the latest technology. I can precisely locate the apex of the root electronically and with a computer-controlled device. I can then remove the damaged or diseased root efficiently and more comfortably.
