Dental Vibe

Using pulsed, vibratory technology, DentalVibe is a pain reducing device that minimizes the pain related to intraoral injections: including palatal injections, maxillary injections, and mandibular block injections. Our patients are always amazed to find that DentalVibe makes injections a breeze for both adults and children.

iTero (Digital Impression)

The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.

Cone Beam CT for Dental Implants

This device scans the whole dentition and provides the dentist with crucial information for those who are seeking an implant procedure. With this technology, it is possible for the dentist to build a 3-D model of the jaw and teeth. The 3-D model will help the dentist plan for complex implant cases before the procedure itself begins.

With the Cone Beam CT, the doctor can also project a 3-D model of what the patient’s teeth will look like after the procedure is completed. This allows for both the patient and the doctor to have a better understanding of what to expect from the procedure.

Snap-On Imaging Software

With the use of this software, Dr. Grisel Martos is able to show her patients what their teeth will look like before they have any cosmetic dental work. First, she takes a picture of the patient’s smile then the doctor can simulate any procedure, including teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, allowing patients to see what they can expect. This software also provides a benchmark to which one can measure the success of any given procedure.

Digital X-Rays

With this technology, the dentist can capture a computerized image of any given set of teeth without the use of traditional photographic film. These images are helpful in the planning multiple cosmetic interventions including: implants, crowns & bridges, and veneers. Compared to traditional X-Rays, we can receive imagery much quicker, but the greater benefit is that the patient is exposed to far less radiation with this technology.

Intra-Oral Camera

In order to make better diagnoses and educate patients, an intra-oral camera is used for every procedure in our office. This camera renders a crisp, true-to-life image of the insides of a mouth, thus providing both the doctor and the patient with a clearer picture of the existing condition/s. This is an essential tool that allows patients to follow along while the dentist explains the steps that need to be taken. The device also allows for the dentist to instantly archive the image to the patient’s records.

Caesy Cloud Technology

Caesy Cloud is an online web archive that contains over 280 multimedia presentations with educational content on multiple dental procedures. They come complete with 3D animations, colorful images, and clear, informative narration. These videos are a fantastic tool for patient education and can be viewed from a both a desktop or a mobile device.

Endodontic Instruments for Root Canal with Digital Apex Locator

Using state-of-the-art endodontic tools, the doctor is able to prepare and shape root canals and remove dental pulp, thereby preserving the tooth. The Digital Apex Locator is able to determine the length of the root canal space, thus helping the dentist perform more precise and effective root canal work.
