Dentsply Sirona Axeos® 2D/3D Imaging
3D imaging provides better quality and more detailed images than traditional x-rays. This new technology is also less invasive and emits less radiation than traditional x-ray machines.
Dentsply Sirona Primescan® Digital Intraoral Scanning
In addition to being much more comfortable for the patient, using the scanner allows us to be more efficient and accurate, which can result in a reduced number of visits to the office, saving the patient time.
Leukocyte-Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) is one of the latest technologies in bone and tissue regeneration. When any tissue in the body is injured, the body itself releases proteins to stimulate the process of repairing that injury.
L-PRF is fabricated by obtaining several tubes of a patient’s own blood, which are then placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the blood into its various components. The patient’s red blood cells are then discarded, but the patient’s plasma, loaded with growth factors, is saved and either placed into extraction sockets or used to augment bone or soft tissue grafts. This product is rich in growth factors and cytokines from the patient’s platelets and leukocytes. The presence of these proteins in L-PRF has been reported to speed the healing response.
Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
Using Electronic Medical Records our practice is able to quickly and accurately access patient information in order to provide the utmost in patient care. This helps to ensure patient confidentiality as well as reduce the need for paper. Using a digital format allows for quick access to your information when needed for insurance records yet provides a secure filing system.
