Finally, fillings without any drilling or needles! This instrument uses micro-sized particles of sand-like material driven by high-pressure air to polish away cavities on the exposed surfaces of the teeth. Since air is the driving force, there is no noise, no vibration, and no pain. It is much less destructive to the tooth then a conventional filling. This procedure is especially great for children and works well on small to medium-sized cavities.
This innovative instrument is used when bonding to teeth or fabricating crowns, bridges, or veneers. It analyzes the color of the teeth adjacent to the one being restored through digital photography. With the help of computer imaging and color mapping software, an exact color match can be achieved. The information is emailed to the dental technician fabricating the restoration. This ensures a seamless color match that naturally blends in with the rest of your smile. It is truly amazing!
This advanced technology is a computer enhancement of a greatly diminished radiation beam. By up to 90 %. A small sensor is utilized instead of the widely used film and the computer captures the image. This allows the doctor to enlarge and even manipulate the picture to better detect problems such as cavities, bone loss, cyst, and much more, Many times these problems can be detected earlier, therefore, being less invasive and costly to treat. In fact, many small cavities when found early enough can be reversed with special prescription medications.

This digital image can be utilized to provide information to insurance companies and other doctors if necessary.
