High-Tech Dentist Tools
Today’s dentistry is nothing like that from twenty, ten, or even five years ago, and our Rockland dentist is trained in the latest techniques that can make dentistry more comfortable, convenient, and effective. This includes:
Sedation dentistry helps you overcome your anxiety to have a comfortable dental experience–or even just make it to the dentist if you can’t now.
CEREC is a CAD/CAM system that allows us to make all-porcelain crowns and inlays while you wait. We design your restorations on the computer and then a small mill carves them out. No need for a second visit to the dentist–you can get it all done at once. And dental inlays last much longer than other fillings.
Temporomandibular joint disorder occurs when your jaw joints, muscles, and teeth aren’t working together properly, causing symptoms in your jaw, but also as far away as your head and fingers. We can measure the state of tension in your muscles and use computerized analysis of your jaw to determine what’s really going on.
Lasers allow us to perform gum treatments with less discomfort and shorter healing times overall, including gum disease treatment and cosmetic recontouring.
Finally, sleep apnea is one of the most under recognized health threats of our time. Your breathing stops in sleep, making you tired during the day and putting you at risk for heart problems, mental disorders, and all manner of accidents. With new understanding of the problem, your dentist can offer a solution that is comfortable and convenient.
