We Keep Up Our Technology
We use traditional instruments, as well as powertome to extract teeth with little or no bone loss. We are one of the few providers in Northeastern Ohio using Piezosurgery, which is an ultrasound technique for cutting bone without damaging surrounding tissue.
Implantology is a specific type of dentistry that deals with the placement of artificial teeth in your jaw. It expands the tooth socket for implant placement while minimizing or eliminating alveolar bone loss, which is what makes it so quick and precise. This means a more comfortable experience for patients, who will also heal faster than usual.
The Piezosurgery device allows doctors to make very accurate cuts into bones without damaging surrounding soft tissue, leading to better results and less discomfort on the patient! But that’s not all: it works quickly because its small hand piece can access your mouth easily (without much vibration or noise), making you feel more at ease from start to finish!
With new advances in dentistry, diseases are diagnosed and routine procedures performed in a different way; they offer ways to prevent illness. While these may seem unfamiliar at first, there are plenty of benefits when it comes to modern day dental technologies. Here’s a look at some of the latest examples of modern day dental technology.
Air Abrasion Technology
Air abrasion, also called microabrasion, is a method for removing tooth decay with tiny particles of aluminum oxide or silica. It’s like a mini sandblaster gently wearing away decayed material without the friction of a drill. Air abrasion dentistry uses advanced dental tools as an alternative to dental drills.
Digital Dental Impressions
A digital impression is a virtual scan that creates a map of your teeth. By using lasers and other optical scanning devices, dentists can create a virtual, computer-generated replica of the hard and soft tissues in your mouth.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, placed into your jaw to hold a prosthetic tooth or a bridge. Dental implants is a small post, mostly made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the root of the tooth. They are a standard in tooth replacement, because they fit, feel and even function just like a natural tooth.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography
Cone beam computed tomography, is a medical imaging technique consisting of X-ray computed tomography where the X-rays are divergent, forming a cone. It works by taking several images, and piecing them together, creating a virtual model of your jaw and teeth. It can find things in your teeth, even disease, that may need to be treated.
Single Day Visit Crown Fabrication
If you need a dental crown, Dr. Sazima and his team can create and place one for you during the day of your appointment in a single visit at our office.
An intraoral camera, are essentially a tiny digital camera that dentists use to view various parts of your mouth a lot more closely. It projects an image of your tooth to a computer monitor, allowing our dentist to see the problem in a more magnified way.
While traditional x-rays are still considered safe, digital x-rays produce about 80% less radiation than traditional. This means it is very unlikely you would develop issues from occasional radiation exposure.
As your dentist is working on your teeth, they control the flow of anesthesia to keep you as comfortable as possible. The Anesthesia Wand delivers medicine very precisely via a computer-assisted anesthesia system that controls flow rate and pressure of anesthesia delivery for pain-free injections.
