Modern dentistry has never been more accurate, comfortable, and efficient. With state-of-the-art technologies, Family & Implant Dentistry of Boynton Beach provides these results and more, with our safe, effective, and well-maintained dental equipment. Read below for information on the tools we use to aid your oral health.
When it comes to orthodontic treatment, you can achieve accelerated results with AcceleDent®. This small device promotes faster tooth movement and has been shown to reduce both discomfort and duration of treatment for patients wearing either fixed braces or clear aligners.
Tooth movement is gently stimulated with the AcceleDent® device through SoftPulse Technology®. This technology utilizes micropulse vibrations that are precisely calibrated to allow your orthodontic treatment to be completed up to 50% faster than with braces or clear aligners alone.
The device itself is a simple mouthpiece. After inserting the appliance into your mouth, simply bite down just enough to hold the device in place without using your hands. Then, turn on the activation switch and leave in your mouth for a full 20 minutes. The device has a convenient timer feature that will allow you to repeat treatment daily, as recommended.
If you want quicker and more comfortable orthodontic treatment, contact our office to see if AcceleDent® is right for you.
Air abrasion technology is harnessed at our office through a small handheld device. This tool offers the ability to safely and effectively eradicate tooth decay and remove surface stains by means of blowing a powerful stream of air mixed with tiny aluminum oxide particles against your tooth. Additionally, air abrasion technology can also be used to aid in cosmetic or restorative treatment procedures to prepare a tooth for bonding or to repair cracked or worn teeth.
For more information on air abrasion technology and how it can be used to restore your smile, contact our office.
Proper dental hygiene can be accomplished with scaling teeth by hand during deep periodontal cleaning. However, the Cavitron is a handheld device that uses ultrasonic technology to remove calculus from teeth and gums for a quicker, gentler, and more effective treatment. At Family & Implant Dentistry of Boynton Beach, we use the Cavitron to provide our patients with a more comfortable dental visit experience.
Cone Beam Imaging
Cone Beam imaging is a sophisticated form of digital radiograph that produces a 3D image of your entire maxillofacial structure. It provides an effective solution to quickly create clear, precise images for your benefit. With one simple scan, the cone beam imager can be used in patient education, diagnostics, and treatment planning.
Cone beam imaging is proven safe and uses minimal radiation while scanning. Additionally, this form of digital radiograph is much less-invasive than other forms of imaging. Therefore, cone beam imaging is an excellent choice for patients with a sensitive gag reflex or dental anxiety.
With advanced technologies like the cone beam, Family & Implant Dentistry of Boynton Beach provides effective, efficient, and comfortable treatment for you during every visit.
Digital x-rays provide a remarkably accurate view of your teeth and surrounding structures, with these images oftentimes giving vital information needed to plan your dental treatment. Our top-of-the-line digital x-rays offer a magnified version of your teeth that can be quickly and easily displayed on a computer screen for better diagnosis and treatment. These digital x-rays require much less radiation than traditional film x-rays and therefore, are safe and effective dental technology.
A panoramic x-ray machine provides a more complete image than standard x-rays by rotating around your entire head. This 360-degree view gives accurate imagery of your teeth, sinuses, and bone structure of your head and jaws. With panoramic x-ray imagery, Family & Implant Dentistry of Boynton Beach has a valuable resource to diagnosis and manage treatment planning for every patient.
Rotary Endodontics Handpiece
A rotary endodontics handpiece is used to complete root canal therapy gently and efficiently. This tool is designed for quicker and more comfortable treatment and better overall dental visit experience.
Soft Tissue Lasers
A soft tissue laser is a tiny beam of highly concentrated light used to provide pinpoint accuracy for dental treatments. This technology is minimally-invasive, but highly effective. Better yet, chances of infection or bleeding following treatment with a soft tissue laser are minimized because it seals off blood vessels and sterilizes the tissues as it works.
Because blood vessels and nerve endings are simultaneously sealed as soft tissues are being treated, there is less swelling, bleeding, and strain on the gums. This also means that using this highly-versatile laser minimizes discomfort both during and after treatment, as well as reduces recovery time.
With the soft tissue laser at our disposal, Family & Implant Dentistry of Boynton Beach provides for a wide variety of precision dental treatments. This technology is relatively pain-free, less invasive, and useful in helping us to give our patients a comfortable dental experience.
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening Light
When it comes to oral cancer, early detection can be pivotal in delivering successful treatment. The VELscope oral cancer screening light helps to provide just that by using a superior blue-spectrum light to scan tissues in the mouth. The light in this handheld scope identifies distinct visual patterns on healthy and unhealthy tissues with natural fluorescence. Using this life-saving technology, oral cancer can be discovered earlier during highly treatable stages.
