X-rays are a truly vital part of the dental care process, showing us important areas of your mouth that are completely inaccessible to the naked eye and helping us plan treatment with more precision and confidence than ever before. Digital technology makes the diagnosis of your dental problems that much smoother and simpler, allowing Dr. Newman to provide quality, personalized care that leaves you smiling.
Digital X-rays have several benefits when compared with their traditional counterparts. They rely on a significantly smaller amount of radiation – up to 90% less, in fact, which makes them much safer for our patients. There are also no more darkrooms and no more hazardous chemicals, which is good news for the environment. Instead, we can capture and transfer detailed images of your mouth to our computer system in a matter of seconds; our team members can even rotate and color-code them to improve patient understanding. The X-rays can be transferred and reproduced digitally too, making them more environmentally friendly.
iTero Digital Impression System
Traditionally, whenever a patient needs a dental crown, bridge, denture, or an oral appliance, dentists collect impressions using a molding tray and putty-like material. This has to be held in place for several minutes while the material sets or hardens enough to hold the impression. Needless to say, this process is an unpleasant experience for patients, and the mold created from the impressions often include mistakes that lead to ill-fitting products.
At Gramercy Dental Studio, we use the iTero digital impression system instead. A small handheld device is placed inside the mouth, where it scans and collects data within seconds. Not only does this allow our team to avoid messy and uncomfortable putty impressions, but it also ensures that the restoration or appliance fits perfectly the first time.
ORALID Cancer Screening Device
As a part of our commitment to the latest technology, our office is home to an ORALID cancer screening device. This amazing dental instrument makes screening for oral cancer as fast, efficient, precise, and effective as possible. ORALID uses a proven fluorescence technology that allows us to identify symptoms and abnormalities that tip off oral cancer. This special blue light essentially highlights problem areas, making it easier and quicker to find potential cancer, pre-cancer, lesions, or other warning signs.
Soft Tissue Laser
Our practice is proud to feature a soft tissue laser (a dental diode laser) to provide the most efficient and comfortable treatment possible. This remarkable device uses a concentrated beam of light to cut through oral tissues and kill harmful bacteria with little to no bleeding. Compared to a traditional scalpel, it can shorten healing times, reduce the need for sedation and anesthesia, lower the risk of infections, and more! We use the laser for a number of different procedures, including frenectomies, periodontal therapy, gum recontouring, and more.
