Dr. Navid and his staff utilize the latest dental technology and procedures to ensure your smile looks its best.
CAD/CAM dentistry is like high-tech magic for your teeth! It’s a modern dental technology that uses computers and special machines to make dental procedures quicker and more precise. Think of it as a 3D printer for your teeth – the dentist can create crowns, bridges, and even dentures right in the office. This means fewer visits, less discomfort, and better-fitting dental work. It’s like upgrading your smile with the help of computers and cutting-edge tools!
At Redmond Family Smiles we use VATECH’s latest 3-D imaging device which combines extremely low radiation dose with the highest image quality using their latest patented digital sensor and software enhaced imaging technology. The machine is capable of acquiring CT scans of the teeth and jaws as well as Panoramic radiography, also called panoramic x-ray, which are the highest standard of care for imlant placement and root canal treatments. Using this technology, your dentist ensures all implants are placed at a safety distance to vital structures such as major nerves and blood vessels in the head and neck.
An x-ray (radiograph) is a noninvasive medical test that helps Dr Navid diagnose and treat dental conditions. Unlike a traditional x-ray where the film/x-ray detector is placed inside of the mouth, the film for a panoramic x-ray is contained inside of the machine. Therefore, it makes the imaging very convenient for individuals with strong gag reflex. Furthermore, the radiation dose a patient receives during this type of imaging is a fraction of Full Mouth Digital Radiography. At Redmond Family Smiles we use the state of the art Pax-I machine with a cutting edge technology that captures smallest details with lowest radiation dose.
At Redmond Family Smiles, we use digital radiography, the latest in dental X-ray technology. Digital radiography allows us to safely detect and diagnose oral health problems. Unlike traditional film X-rays, digital X-rays require a miniscule amount of radiation, making them a safer option for everyone. We can also view digital X-rays instantly, which gives Dr. Navid and the rest of our dental team the opportunity to create your treatment plan faster than ever! For more information on digital radiography or any of the dental technology we use to improve your oral health, we invite you to give our office a call soon.
Soft Tissue Lasers
One of the most advanced pieces of technology we use at Redmond Family Smiles is the soft tissue laser. We use the soft tissue laser to provide you with more comfortable treatment and encourage the healing process after your visit. Because the laser provides such comfortable treatment, many patients who receive laser soft tissue therapy do not need any local anesthetic!
Our soft tissue laser can be used to help reshape the gum line as well as reduce the bacteria associated with gum disease, so you have a healthier, happier mouth. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of laser dentistry, please contact our office today.
