It’s easier to show you what’s going on in your mouth rather than to just tell you. When a picture is worth a thousand words, the intraoral camera is an invaluable tool. With it, we capture precise images of your teeth and gums, which are transferred onto a screen that is right at your chair side. Then, we can show you just what’s going on in your mouth and talk you through your entire treatment plan more easily.
Digital images allow the team at Dental Serenity of Manhattan to provide truly comprehensive dental care. With digital x-rays, we can better identify cavities between the teeth for earlier treatment. These images help us determine bone levels and how healthy the surrounding bone tissues are. They also allow Dr. Chang to examine tooth roots and nerve chambers, diagnose precancerous and cancerous cysts and tumors, and assess the extent of damage following trauma.
To place dental implants requires extreme precision for the most successful outcomes. The CT/cone beam scanner helps Dr. Chang capture an in-depth look at your oral structures for a more thorough, informed treatment planning process. This tool creates a closeup 3D image of your bones, neural pathways, blood vessels, and the entire jaw structure to help your dentist place the dental implant(s) in the ideal position for lasting success.
From gum disease treatment to recontouring excess gum tissue, periodontal procedures at Dental Serenity of Manhattan are more efficient, precise, and comfortable with the soft tissue laser. It uses concentrated light to zap through infected gums or unwanted gum tissue, simultaneously killing bacteria and promoting healing of the gums while it works. The soft tissue laser eliminates the need for sutures and stitches, for a more comfortable procedure and faster recovery overall.
Caries from the Latin for “rottenness” sometimes referred to as tooth decay or cavities, are not always easy to spot. With the new CariVu technology small or minor areas of decay in between your teeth are uncovered. This allows dentists to treat them when they are small therefore preserving more of your tooth structure.
The inability to detect caries clearly can lead dentists to go over or under treating a problem area. With the CariVu transillumination technology, Doctors have a 2nd opinion available with an accurate result. When a problem area is unclear through traditional radiography, CariVu can take more defining look. Transillumination clearly displays difficult to examine caries in the early stages of decay or interproximal (inbetween) decay allowing our dentists to confidently determine the next steps in your dental plan. It has been our experience with Cariview that many areas of decay that do not show up on traditional X-rays at all are found with this technology-truly advanced!
