Dental Technology Provided in Our Office
3D Cone Beam CT-Scan
Our CT-scan produces high-definition 3D scans so we can plan your dental implant procedure or other dental treatment more precisely and efficiently than ever before. This latest cone beam CT technology allows us to view all of your teeth and the surrounding bone in 3D. Compared to traditional x-rays, cone beam CT scans lead to much more effective identification and diagnosis of oral problems.
Platelet Fibrin Therapy
Tooth loss and damage to the jaw bone and soft tissues are often challenging issues during oral surgery or implant placement.
Without enough support in the jaw bone, dental implants cannot be immediately stabilized and tissue healing can be a long process. The solution to these and other difficult situations is a new Platelet Therapy created from your own blood. Leukocyte – Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) promotes healing and bone growth from within your own body using your own blood. With a simple blood draw and an advanced technology protocol, L-PRF is individually made for you – from you. The end results are improved healing response and significantly less recovery time.
CEREC® CAD/CAM is the epitome of modern dentistry. In just 2 hours, you can have a crown! There are no temporaries and no need for a second visit. CEREC® CAD/CAM is less invasive, provides a precise fit, and delivers durable, natural looking crowns.
This device is revolutionary in bone surgery. It provides precision, safety, perfect ergonomics, and the highest quality. The Piezosurgery® helps make bone surgeries much safer, since nerves, blood vessels, and other soft tissue anatomical structures stay unharmed. This benefits our patients when we operate close to the inferior mandibular nerve or the maxillary sinuses and reduces postoperative discomfort.
Laser technology - ivoclar-vivadent-odyssey
Laser technology benefits our patients mainly in gum and periodontal structure treatments. Laser sterilizes the gum pockets around the teeth so that post-treatment gum infection does not occur. Laser also boosts the energy of the cells in the soft tissue of the gums and release growth hormones and cytokines to aid in healing and regeneration of good tissue.
The Surgitron is an electric surgical knife that allows for the instant cutting and coagulation of bleeding blood vessels. The Surgitron 4.0 Dual by Ellman is an operating room unit that goes far beyond the application of a regular dental office to allow for surgical procedures to be performed with much less cellular damage than surgery done by other electrosurgical units. Several research studies show that there is 73% less thermal spread with ellman® than with the Bovie® or ValleyLab® low-frequency generators. The research studies show a statistically significant advantage for the Surgitron 4.0 Dual by Ellman.
An intraoral camera is an indispensable diagnostic and educational tool. The tiny video camera moves around inside of your mouth and generates a live video exam of your teeth. Using an intraoral camera allows patients to better understand their dental treatment by viewing what Dr. Mohamed Ali sees while having it explained to them.
Electronic Dental Records
Electronic dental records are an integrated part of our practice management system. Our paperless system delivers electronic charting, digital imaging, and enhanced case presentation where it is needed most, chairside. It helps keep our practice ready to adapt to any futuristic modern technologies, all while staying green and kind to the environment.
Digital X-rays offer a huge advantage in early detection and preventative services. Advanced image manipulation and analysis allows Dr. Mohamed Ali to detect early stages of gum disease through recognition of bone level changes.
AIRFLOW® - Glycine Hygiene
Glycine spray under controlled pressure is proven
by the dental literature to be very safe and more effective in removing bacterial film, without causing scratches to dental enamel, root surfaces, dental implants, or any other restoration materials. Glycine also has anti-inflammatory properties which can be very beneficial to the treatment of periodontal disease.
We have in-office teeth whitening device, which delivers excellent results, with no side effects. It is very gentle on the enamel and causes no harm. So, if you have stained teeth from coffee or tea, and want a perfect set of white sparkling teeth, this is what you need
Surgical microscope is used for very precise endodontic and other delicate procedures where precision is required. One of the applications has resulted in the first systemic classification of tooth cracks and fractures. Most of these types of cracks are not visible without high magnification (16X) and would therefore go undetected even with loupes.
The oral-cancer screening device called Velascope is used during routine examinations to detect pre-cancerous lesions. If any of our patients have any pre-cancerous trace in their mouth, we can detect it right away and advice the best way forward. This is huge for patient safety because the early discovery of oral cancer makes a huge difference in the success of cancer therapy.
Intravenous sedation helps patients get their treatment done while they are asleep. When they wake up, their treatment is complete and they don’t even remember it. It is very rare for a dentist to get IV certification and we are fortunate that Dr. Ali is a certified intravenous sedation provider.
Best Topical Ever
The Best Topical Ever is used to provide more comfort for our patients who want to be assured that their dental injection will be 100% pain free. With all other conventional topicals, patients will feel their dental anesthetic injection, which is why many of them are afraid of getting their dental treatments. The Best Topical Ever will guarantee that our patients’ gums are completely numb before injections. It is so effective to the point that injections are not required in small cavities. With The Best Topical Ever, your dental anesthesia injection should no longer be a concern because you will be numb before we actually numb you. Your entire treatment will be painless and comfortable.
Blood Pressure Monitor With Pulse Oximeter
All our surgeries are medically monitored and we make sure we take full care of our patients before, during and after their treatment. The pulse oximeter placed on the fingertip will read the oxygen saturation of your blood to assure enough oxygen is getting to the brain so the surgery takes place smoothly.
Hygiene and sanitation are very important to us and we do everything to prevent cross-contamination. We run multiple autoclave cycles every day, box and wrap all our utensils, for the best level of sterilization.
