As the world of technology develops, so do our dentistry tools. At Ridgetop Dental, a dentist in Sterling, VA, we’re constantly learning and introducing the latest technologies in our dental practice. Dr. Datta talks about the various technologies that we have at our practice and how they’re utilized to give you the best dental care possible.
CEREC utilizes CAD/CAM technology to allow us to create many dental restorations right in our office instead of sending impressions away to a lab. One of the greatest benefits is that it takes digital impressions. This means you can say goodbye to the days of biting down on strange material so that an impression of your teeth can be made.
With CEREC technology, we can make dental crowns, inlays, onlays, or porcelain veneers. They’re crafted using our in-house mill and using fine dental ceramic that’s color-matched to your smile, or the brightest shade you’d like! All restorations made with CEREC will look natural and blend in with the rest of your teeth.
Dental CT Scanner
The dental CT scanner allows Dr. Datta to get a full three-dimensional view of your entire mouth and jaw region. Your teeth and jawbone, as well as certain facial bones and structures in the head and neck, can be important to look at before certain procedures.
This level of detail is hard to get with other technologies. It can help our team to diagnose various issues that may be hard to see with a blind eye. It’s also ideal for ensuring the best placement for the titanium posts of dental implants. The dentist will be able to see the best angle and region to make sure you get the best stability and comfort for your implants.
Missing teeth means that you’re going to experience deterioration of the jawbone and gum tissue where the open area is. PRGF®-Endoret® is a unique treatment option that uses your own blood to help regenerate these tissues. Platelet-rich plasma is known for helping to accelerate the natural healing process, which is why it’s used here.
If you’re considering dental implants, they require a certain amount of healthy bone to be implanted in. This is what gives them the stability other options don’t have. With PRGF®-Endoret®, a bone graft can heal faster and enable you to get the smile you want.
Any time you get x-rays, radiation is involved. But with digital x-rays, we can make sure patients and staff are exposed to less radiation. They give a great, high-resolution image that’s automatically saved digitally to be referenced in the future. A more convenient way to get the images we need!
