 DENTAL TECHNOLOGY

 

In order to provide nothing but the best to our patients, our office uses state-of-the-art technologies in all our procedures.  These new technologies allow us to treat dental cases with extreme precision, detect dental concerns at early stages, and provide stunning and customized restorations. When you visit our office you can be confident that you are receiving on the finest and most advanced in dental care. 
 
We proudly offer and use the following advanced equipment:
X-rays
 
 
Paperless Charting
 
 
Electronic Claim Processing
"The Wand" Painless Injections
 
 

X-RAYS
X-rays are a focused beam of x-ray particles passed through bone which produce an image on special film, showing the structure through which it passed.  This provides the familiar black and white images doctors and dentists use to diagnose problems and disease.  Without an x-ray of the whole tooth and supporting bone and gum tissues, there would be no way to detect infection or pathology that requires attention. 

 

PAPERLESS CHARTING
Our office is a completely digital (paperless) dental office. This means all x-rays and charting are made and recorded with the aid of the computer. This technology allows us to maintain your dental records electronically, and cuts down the unnecessary paperwork used with traditional paper charting.  Traditional paper charting is difficult to keep standardized from doctor to hygienist to assistant.  Even handwriting differences and coding make the charts look different. The computer eliminates this problem by using consistent charting methods that are accurate and precise, making it easy to read your dental chart and see up-to-date information.  Digital charting standardizes the charting process so it is clear, easy to understand, and enables us to provide on the most accurate and precise care to our patients. When needed, this method also allows us to quickly and securely share information with your other health care providers.

 

 

ELECTRONIC CLAIM PROCESSING

Our office utilizes electronic claims processing.This means that rather than sending your dental claim through the mail, it is sent electronically to your insurance company with the click of the button.By filing your claim electronically, information is submitted more efficiently and with fewer errors.This benefits our patients because the turn around time on claims is faster and fewer claims are returned or denied.We are happy to submit your dental claims to your insurance company on your behalf. 

THE WAND -  PAINLESS INJECTIONS
We know that some patients get more nervous than others at the mere sight of a needle and syringe. That's where the CompuDent system comes in, featuring the Wand - a small lightweight handpiece that resembles a pen. The computer controlled system allows for an even-flow delivery of anesthetic in a very comfortable, non-threatening manner. It eliminates the "bee sting" effect - the painful consequence from a surge of fluid into a confined tissue area. Even more, certain injections made possible with the Wand minimize the unnecessary numbness of the tongue, cheek, and face. Imagine leaving the dentist's office without a "fat lip!"

CompuDent(TM) featuring the Wand handpiece provides painless injections for all routine dental treatment including root canals, crowns, fillings, and cleanings. Milestone Scientific's computer-controlled local anesthetic delivery system doesn't look like a syringe. It doesn't feel like a syringe. What's more, it works better than a syringe resulting in a more pleasant experience. Ask your doctor about CompuDent and the Wand at your next visit.  It's the comfortable alternative to the syringe.
