Intra-oral imaging gives you a detailed view of your mouth in pictures and videos.
Putting specific problem areas onto a computer screen lets us see with clarity and detail that’s not possible with a traditional mouth mirror. Hand-held wands quickly capture the details of your teeth and gums.
In fact, even small cracks that often lead to broken teeth appear vividly with the click of a button. We can explain the need for treatment more clearly by showing you what we see in great detail.
As an added benefit, dental insurance benefits often pay more quickly with the visual proof of a digital image.
CONE BEAM/3D X-RAY
We’re excited to offer the most advanced imaging process in dentistry: ConeBeam CT scanning, or 3D imaging. This technology allows us to create virtually unlimited views of your teeth, face, and neck with just one scan.
We’re able to obtain high-quality, detailed information to diagnose and plan your treatment needs. We can evaluate your teeth and facial structures from literally every angle, in 3D, and in color!
The ConeBeam CT imaging system is a digital x-ray scanner that rotates once around your head while you stand or sit in a chair. The process is quick, simple, and completely painless.
We use these scans to provide the best treatment in dental implants, root canals, diagnosis of dental and facial pain, etc.
Regardless of your needs, 3D imaging makes it possible to plan and customize your care unlike never before. You can have absolute confidence and satisfaction in the treatment you receive, knowing we’ve analyzed every problem with 3D technology.
Digital sensors capture detailed x-ray images with a fraction of the exposure found in traditional film x-rays.
Technological advancements in x-ray technology provide multiple benefits, from safety to improved treatment results.
SOFT TISSUE LASER
Laser technology continues to transform many procedures in healthcare. Once the subject of sci-fi movies, lasers now clearly provide benefits for mainstream treatment in medicine and dentistry.
Shorter procedures, less discomfort, and quicker healing are just a few of the benefits of modern lasers.
The soft tissues of the mouth cover about 30 square inches of surface area. Annoying lumps or bumps may need removal with any unusual patches of tissue requiring further microscopic analysis.
Traditionally, a surgical procedure involving incisions and sutures would be required to produce a biopsy sample. Today, a pen-shaped wand allows Dr. Irwan Goh to remove suspicious or bothersome bumps in a couple of minutes.
The healing stimulated by laser energy leads to rapid healing and little to no discomfort, without the need for stitches.
Similarly, gums can be quickly reshaped without bleeding, and some gum infections are now treated with rapid results. Even cold sores or mouth ulcers can undergo faster healing when laser energy passes over the surface.
Better yet, the days of pain associated with these recurring ulcers can be dramatically decreased. Lasers are also safe for use with children and can help with growth and development issues or help wisdom teeth move into place.
A soft tissue laser offers a valuable benefit to many conditions in the mouth. Dr. Goh’s specific training in laser protocols opens many possibilities using one of modern dentistry’s most versatile tools.
HARD TISSUE LASER
Hard tissue lasers elevate dental treatment to a new level. Teeth contain water, and laser energy contacting a tooth excites the water molecules to help gently trim away tooth structure.
Often a continuous stream of water keeps the tooth cool, virtually eliminating sensation. And the quiet operation of the laser handpiece offers a pleasant respite from the sound of a dental drill.
A hard tissue laser’s precise operation allows less of your tooth to be removed to access an area damaged by a cavity. And without the vibration of a conventional metal drill, fewer stress cracks develop in the tooth.
Your tooth remains stronger with less filling material needed to return it to full function. Better yet, no anesthetic is needed for many procedures involving the small laser handpiece!
Since teeth rarely need numbing before laser treatment, multiple cavities can often be restored in one visit. Instead of worrying about numb lips and return visits, laser dentistry streamlines your care and gets you back to your daily routine in no time.
Adults and children benefit from treatment that leaves their mouths feeling perfectly normal right after treatment!
The benefits of laser treatment extend well beyond cavities, providing a valuable method of treating gum disease, root canals, and problem areas around implants.
Many other surgical treatments can be simplified, often eliminating the need for stitches and reducing otherwise lengthy healing periods.
CEREC is the most advanced dental restorative system available today. CEREC streamlines a once time-intensive process…dramatically.
In ONE visit, 3D digital images of your teeth appear on the screen and Dr. Irwan Goh and his team design a custom solution with innovative software. The images produce a crafted porcelain restoration through a special milling process.
Bonded into place minutes later, your new tooth appears and functions just as nature intended.
CEREC stands for:
CHAIRSIDE: The technology sits within arm’s reach of the dental chair in as little as one appointment.
ECONOMICAL: Efficiency reduces the overall cost of treatment and allows you to turn two visits into one. Less travel, less time away from work and your family.
RESTORATIONS: Natural beauty, function, and strength for a broad range of needs, CEREC offers a solution for nearly every scenario.
ESTHETIC: Metal-free materials in many shades and color variations allow a perfect blend with your teeth.
CERAMIC: High-strength ceramics closely mimic natural tooth structure and support years of normal function.
Traditionally, hours of labor in a dental laboratory were required to make a crown or bridge. With the adoption of more technology into dentistry, digital imaging continues to grow in importance.
Most restorations begin with a mold of your mouth that involves messy impression materials. With the iTero Digital Scanner, you can say goodbye to the mess.
iTero eliminates this step, replacing it with simple digital images captured with a handheld wand. The images quickly appear on a computer screen as 3D models of your teeth, allowing Dr. Irwan Goh to review them right away.
- NO messy impressions
- INSTANT images for review
- DETAILED reproduction for better outcomes
- FASTER case completion
- EXCEPTIONAL fitting restorations and appliances
Most of the restorations and appliances used to restore and protect your mouth are highly customized. Traditionally, hours of labor in a dental laboratory were invested in producing just one crown.
With the adoption of more technology into dentistry, CAD/CAM continues to grow in importance with unsurpassed benefits to you.
Computer-aided design (CAD) involves the design and creation of three-dimensional models for services such as crowns, veneers, onlays, inlays, and bridges with absolute precision.
Even dentures, mouthguards, and some forms of orthodontic treatment are created using this technology. Sophisticated software allows these highly detailed procedures to become more controlled than ever before.
Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) sends the data to an automated milling machine. This digital manufacturing process offers:
- Precise metal-free beauty
- Undetectable surface texture
- Single-visit convenience
- Exceptional fit and function
- Durable, long-lasting service
