If you’ve ever tried to inspect the inside of your own mouth in a mirror, you already know that it can be difficult to see everything clearly. When our dentists find a problem, we don’t ask you to take their word for it. Instead, we are able to use Dexis intraoral cameras to capture real-time images of the area and show you these images on our chairside screens. That way, you can see exactly what we see and make smarter choices for your treatment moving forward.
Digital X-rays have many advantages over their traditional counterparts. Not only do digital X-rays not require the use of harsh chemicals, but they are also available for viewing immediately. With smaller sensors, the process of taking X-rays is simpler and more comfortable than ever before, and perhaps most importantly, digital X-rays involve less radiation exposure, helping to keep you and your loved ones healthier and safer in the long term.
CT/Cone Beam Scanner
As helpful and clear as X-rays can be for diagnosing cavities and other oral problems, there is a lot that they can’t show. In some complex procedures, such as placing dental implants, knowing more information can help ensure treatment success. That’s where our Sirona CT cone beam scanner comes in. By taking hundreds of images and completely surrounding your head, the scanner can produce a detailed 3D model of important oral structures, including nerves and blood vessels, helping our doctors accurately plan the procedure and make sure that it results in success.
Have you ever had impressions taken with the putty-like material? It can be an unpleasant experience, to say the least. However, at Vienna Smiles, you can sit back and relax when we take impressions of your teeth. Using digital technology for impressions, we quickly scan your mouth and collect accurate information that is then used to create custom restorations and oral appliances. We even fabricate same-day CEREC crowns right here in our dental office, saving you significant time.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
When the problem with your smile has to do with the gums and not the teeth, we use a soft tissue laser. This technology allows us to remove tissue without needing to use a scalpel or sutures. As a result, you can experience significantly less pain during the procedure—perhaps without needing anesthetic at all—and faster healing afterward. So whether you have more advanced gum disease or you’d like to fix your gummy smile, you can rely on our team to help you achieve your smile goals.
