Putting Dental Technology to Work for You
DR. AMINZADEH EMPLOYS THE LATEST STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY TO ENSURE THAT YOUR DENTAL AND COSMETIC PROCEDURES ARE EFFECTIVE, FAST AND COMFORTABLE.
It is our job to keep abreast of emerging, proven technology and we have assessed and incorporated the following technology for your comfort and safety.
Our 3D digital scanner provides fast, precise 3D scans. Scans have become increasingly important in treatment planning and diagnosis in implant dentistry as well as in the fields of endodontics and orthodontics and is an important tool to ensure accuracy and perfection.
Dental Operating Microscope
Using a dental operating microscope with powerful magnification (3X to 19X), Dr. AminZadeh is able to dramatically enhance the precision of the work performed on your teeth. This leading edge system provides high-resolution magnification and excellent communication between the dental team and the patient through its digital photography and real-time videography, allowing patients and team members to follow procedures.
Dr. AminZadeh uses digital x-rays instead of traditional dental x-rays resulting in a number of benefits to you. Digital x-rays are safer because they use up to 90% less radiation. This is particularly important to patients needing multiple x-rays. Additionally, because the image is sent to a computer and not to film, the results are instant and much clearer. It’s also faster and easier to transfer electronic x-ray files between your dental care team when necessary. And, of course, no film means no environmental waste, which is why digital x-rays are a green solution too.
VELscope technology is a fast, effective and reliable way to detect the early signs of oral cancer and other lesions that could be problematic or cause health concerns. The VELscope hand piece shines a light into your mouth enabling us to examine the tissue area. It takes only a few minutes and is completely painless.
Invisalign is a remarkable teeth-straightening solution that uses 3D computer modeling to create invisible sets of ‘aligners’ that gradually and comfortably straighten your teeth over time. Invisalign is a perfect alternative to braces. Overall it can take 9 to 15 months for your teeth to straighten and there is no need for frequent trips to the dentist for tightening or adjustment.
Keeping our clinic safe and clean is a top priority. One of the ways in which we achieve this is by sterilizing all dental instruments through a pressurized steam oven. In addition, we use an ultrasonic scrubber, only touch instruments with gloved hands, and our teeth cleaning and polishing instruments are disposable.
We use diagnodent, a laser technology, to scan teeth for cavities. The diagnodent painlessly beams a laser onto your tooth enabling our expert team to determine if there is any dental decay. The process is fast, safe and extremely effective. Plus, the diagnodent is excellent at detecting very small cavities––which means that we can stop them in their infancy and keep your teeth healthy and strong.
Computer-aided Design & Manufacture of Dental Crowns
Gone are the days when the design and manufacture of dental crowns implied several visits to your dentist over a prolonged period of time and a temporary filling to tide you over. At Dr. AminZadeh’s dental studio, using the latest technology, we can have your crown ready within an hour. Using a tiny camera, our computer program constructs a three-dimensional image of the tooth to be crowned.
All the details––the size and shape, the little ridges and indentations––are transmitted to a machine that mills the crown from porcelain, a process that takes as little as 15 minutes when it’s ready to be glued in. It’s as simple as that.
