Read on to learn more about the different types of advanced technology we use to provide our patients with the best experience possible. We are always looking for ways to enhance your convenience and comfort by remaining at the forefront of dental industry innovation.
Digital X-Rays/Digital Imaging
Many patients find traditional x-rays uncomfortable, which is why we offer digital imaging services. This innovative technology makes it possible to visualize your teeth and oral structures with even greater precision than many traditional x-ray systems while reducing your exposure to radiation by as much as 90 percent. We can also develop the x-rays more quickly and view the images in greater detail. This allows us to provide accurate diagnoses, achieve thorough routine dental examinations, and create optimal treatment plans.
3D Printing with Form 2
Our state-of-the-art 3D printing machine allows us to manufacture a number of items without having to wait for a lab to create the piece and mail it to us, which can take considerably longer (and require multiple visits). With the Form 2 platform, we can create surgical guides, orthodontic models, splints to reduce TMJ disorder symptoms, retainers, and even Invisalign® aligners. As a result, you can get your treatment materials faster and with greater precision than ever before.
3D Dental Milling Machine
Our in-house milling machine makes customizing restorations to fit precisely and retain durable features easier than ever. We can manufacture crowns, bridges, and porcelain veneers using a wide range of materials to best suit your needs and goals. Since they are created by our team, you can feel more confident that your piece was designed just for you. Best of all, you can receive a restoration in one appointment, rather than dealing with a temporary while waiting for a permanent replacement to be made off-site.
iTero® Intraoral Scanner
Forget about uncomfortable and messy molds, digital impressions have eliminated the need for them while providing a more accurate and versatile innovation. With our intraoral scanner, we can view your teeth, gums, and oral structures up close using a small handheld pen-like camera. We can also use the iTero® system to plan your orthodontic treatment using Invisalign, show you the anticipated outcome, and create guides to send to our 3D printer to manufacture your aligners.
3D Imaging with i-CAT™
The i-CAT™ is a state-of-the-art 3D imaging tool that allows Dr. Yanez to fully visualize the oral structures from all angles and customize your dental program with greater precision than ever before. As a result, developing concerns can be identified earlier and addressed with less aggressive techniques, thereby protecting and preserving your oral health. This technology also makes it possible to reduce radiation exposure and offer a more comfortable experience to our patients.
