Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:
Cat Scan Guided Dental Implant Surgery
Dental Implant Surgery is very technique sensitive and correct placement of dental implants to support restoration is best accomplished by using the most advanced technology to ensure a successful outcome.
At South River Periodontics, we use 3 dimensional skeletal modeling to ensure dental implants are placed in the optimal position to support your restoration.
Our advanced digital x-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.
With digital x-rays, we can view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your dental treatment.
Digital x-rays require much less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.
Cone Beam Imaging
Cone Beam imaging is an advanced form of digital radiograph. With the cone beam imager, one simple scan will produce a 3D image of your entire maxillofacial structure. This image can then be used in diagnostics, patient education, treatment planning, and treatment follow-up.
The cone beam provides an effective solution to create quick, clear, precise images for your benefit. Additionally, the cone beam uses minimal radiation in scanning and is a much less-invasive process than other forms of imaging. This makes the cone beam an excellent choice for patients with dental anxiety or a sensitive gag reflex.
By utilizing advanced technologies like the cone beam, we can provide an effective, efficient, and comfortable patient experience for you on every visit.
Use of Botox and Dermal Fillers
We use Botulinum Toxin to reduce bite forces in patients who clench and grind their teeth to minimize damage to teeth, restorations and jaw joint (TMJ). Other uses are to reduce the incidence of “gummy smiles” and to fill in lines, cracks and wrinkles in the lips an facial tissue.
