Advanced Dental Technology – East Islip, NY
Modern Oral Healthcare That Makes a Difference
The dental field is always making advancements, and technology is no exception. At East Islip Dental Care, we offer a wide variety of modern dental procedures and techniques that optimize oral health, function, and aesthetics in patients of all ages. You will find our office well-equipped to meet all of your family’s smile-related goals. Here are some of the technologies you can expect to find when you visit East Islip Dental Care:
Lasers have been utilized for dental procedures for over 20 years. They’re useful for removing the diseased tissue that results from periodontal disease. The laser can also be used for cosmetic gum contouring procedures.
By combining light and heat, a dental laser is able to pinpoint and eliminate diseased gum tissue without interfering with healthy tissue. It also sterilizes the treated area in order to accelerate the healing process. The dental laser makes treatment more comfortable for our patients.
Have you ever considered changing the appearance of your smile, but you’re unsure of what type of results to expect? Cosmetic digital imaging may be just the solution you need to make a final decision on the right treatment for your needs.
Digital imaging utilizes computer software that manipulates your own photograph to show you exactly what your teeth will look like after completing the cosmetic procedures you’re considering. Whether you're thinking about teeth whitening, dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or a full smile makeover, digital imaging technology lets you see what you will look like when your treatment is done. You’ll even get to take a picture of your new look home with you!
The Intraoral Camera
The old adage “a picture’s worth a thousand words” has never been truer than with dentistry. It is much easier to understand why you might need a dental filling or crown when you can see the decay in your tooth in a full color picture.
Our intraoral camera allows us to take high-resolution pictures of your teeth and mouth that we can share with you immediately on the television screens in our treatment rooms. You will be able to see and better understand your treatment needs so you can make timely decisions on the dental procedures that will best meet your lifestyle and budget.
Digital X-rays offer both our dentists and our patients many advantages. These X-rays benefit our patients because they emit 80% less radiation than the traditional X-rays of the past. They are also readily available for review with your dentist so you can make the best decisions for your oral health in a timely manner.
A clearer picture in high definition allows our dentists to give our patients a more precise and accurate diagnosis so treatment can be completed in the earliest stages.
If you are thinking about treatment such as a full makeover, your dentist may recommend doing a wax-up of your teeth. A wax-up allows our dentists to plan your treatment, taking into consideration how your current condition will affect your outcome. Wax-ups are used to help plan treatment, as well as giving you an idea of what your teeth will look like once your treatment is completed.
