At Old Milton Dental, we strive to constantly be at the very forefront of modern dental technology. Modern dental technology benefits our patients in so many ways. From making treatments more effective to diagnosing problems earlier on, modern dental technology is a must-have in our Alpharetta dental office. We want to do everything in our power to make your visits with us more efficient, effective and comfortable. We believe our dental technology sets us apart from other dental offices in the area. You can expect an enjoyable experience at our dental office with our modern dental technology. Experience the difference for yourself! We offer several different modern technologies in our office that you can read more about below.
3D Scan – Panoramic X-Rays
One of our favorite modern dental technologies that we use is 3D Scan Panoramic X-Rays. Think back to x-rays just 10 years ago. You had to spend half of your visit taking x-rays and then retaking x-rays to get the perfect shot. Today’s x-rays not only produce less radiation, but they’re digital. This means that we receive your results instantly via computer instead of waiting for film to develop. Our x-rays are panoramic pictures of your teeth, giving us a complete 3D scan. This gives us a clear picture of what’s going on at every angle of your mouth while also giving us an overall picture at once.
The 3D scan is perfect for helping us plan out extractions because it will show us if your tooth root is curved around your jawbone. This is something that can’t really be seen with a 2D x-ray. With a better look at what’s going on inside your mouth, we can better plan our your treatment and make it more effective saving you time and pain in the long run.
Another amazing dental technology we have in our office is known as The Wand. The Wand is a useful dental instrument that easily delivers local anesthetic when you are having dental treatments done. The Wand Computer Assisted Anesthesia System uses a pen-shaped device with a tiny needle to deliver local anesthesia pain-free. It administers local anesthesia on your gums before the needle touches them, making the prick completely pain-free. This device will make every procedure more pleasant. The best part? The Wand is perfect for all ages, helping your children have a positive experience at the dentist. Enjoy a more pain-free dental experience thanks to our modern dental technology in Alpharetta.
Another dental technology we offer in our office is the BIOLASE Laser. The BIOLASE laser is an effective tool that delivers precise dental care. Instead of dreading the sound of the drill whenever you need a small filling or any sort of dental work, you can experience a quieter treatment option with the BIOLASE laser. In any circumstance where our dentist may use a drill, it can be substituted with the BIOLASE laser. Some benefits of using a laser include faster healing times, less pain during the procedure, more precise treatments and no sound of the drill. If you are sensitive to noise and would like faster recovery times, the BIOLASE laser is a good option for you. It’s just another example of how Old Milton Dental takes their patient’s care and comfort into consideration.
The laser can be used for the following:
- Remove plaque
- Prepare your teeth to receive fillings
- Treat canker sores and other ulcers
- Perform root canals
- Aid in healing following implant surgery
- Release un-erupted teeth
Another modern dental technology we offer in our dental office is an intraoral camera. This is a small camera that we use to take pictures of inside your mouth. It’s ideal for us to get a closer picture of what’s going on, especially in hard to see areas. We can also use these images to send to your insurance company if you need a specific treatment for them to approve. The images also help us diagnose and plan your treatment plan.
Our last piece of dental technology we offer in our office is one that really sets us apart from other dental offices in the area. If you have ever needed a dental crown or another dental restoration, you most likely had to wait a few weeks for it to return from the dental lab. In the meantime, you had to wear an uncomfortable temporary restoration. Thankfully, today, we can offer you a same-day crown or restoration.
Dr. Corey Mazer was actually the first dentist in Alpharetta to invest in a CEREC machine for his dental office in Alpharetta over 10 years ago. Since then, our dental office has provided patients with thousands of same-day permanent restorations.
The CEREC or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics is a machine that uses CAD/CAM technology to take quick digital impressions of your teeth and then easily generates them into the perfectly precise restoration you need. Our dentist will choose the correct color of ceramic material that your restoration is made of so that it matches your surrounding teeth perfectly. The machine actually mills your restorations the same day as your appointment. In less than an hour, we will have taken impressions, milled and installed your restoration. This is the ideal way to restore your teeth with as little time at our dental office as possible. Not to mention, you don’t have to walk around with an uncomfortable temporary restoration. Your treatment will be complete in just one visit.
