The field of dentistry is constantly evolving and changing and available treatment options keep improving. Dr. Reem Kidess is always on the lookout for new and emerging technology to make our patients’ experience as comfortable and as effective as possible.
These are some of the technologies that our dental office employs
Air Abrasion: Instead of using a dental drill to remove tooth decay, dentists are using gentle, sound-free air abrasion techniques.
Bone Replacement: Bone replacement used to assist people suffering from bone loss or those requiring extraction. Bone replacement is used in many dental implant procedures. read more
CBCT Technology: CBCT stands or Cone Beam Computed Tomography is a sophisticated 3D imaging system used to obtain clear, and precise 3 dimensional pictures of the bone structure, vital anatomical structures and soft tissue. read more
CEREC Crowns:® CAD/CAM system uses the CEREC intra-oral scanner/camera to take a digital/virtual impression, of that site and within minutes a customized porcelain crown, veneer, inlay or onlay is designed (CAD), and then milled (CAM). read more
Clear Correct®: Clear, practically invisible braces that can gently straighten your teeth. They provide an effective and comfortable way to straighten your smile without the inconvenience of wearing heavy, metal braces.
Composite Materials: Composite resin materials are now used in some veneers and other restorations, to fill cavities and to bond onto or rebuild a tooth. Composite resins offer a tooth-like resolution and have grown in popularity over the years.
Dental Implants: Dental implants are screw-replacements for the root portion of missing teeth. Implants are used to restore healthy smiles when patients have missing teeth. Implants are effective because they can replace missing teeth, while still giving the patient the feel and look of a natural tooth. read more
Intraoral Camera: An intraoral camera is a video camera in a pen — it sounds like a James Bond tool, but many dentists are now using it to detect tooth decay and cracked teeth.
Laser: In soft tissue laser surgery, the laser beam can make very small incisions when the beam is focused on the tissue. A laser beam will naturally sterilize as it cuts which leads to a decrease in local infections.
Opalescence® Whitening: Opalescence Whitening is a new, state of the art in office whitening treatment that gives our patients fast and easy results. In just one appointment read more
Sedation Dentistry: Nitrous Oxide and (Intravenous) IV Sedation—Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, can calm a patient down to a point that they are relaxed but can still interact with their dentist. On the other hand, IV sedation relaxes a patient so completely so that they are unaware of what happened during their dental session. read more
VelScope: This is a special type of light that a dentist will shine in a patient’s mouth to detect any abnormalities. This new form of technology is effectively used to detect early forms of cancer or disease during an oral cancer screening. read more
