New technology means new growth

Rebottaro Family Dentistry is unwavering in its commitment to offering patients the utmost convenience and quality of care through the integration of state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge dental technology. Our practice firmly believes that staying at the forefront of dental advancements is essential to delivering the highest standard of service. By continually investing in innovative tools and technology, we ensure that our patients benefit from efficient and precise treatments, from digital X-rays for reduced radiation exposure to intra-oral cameras that empower patients to see their dental health firsthand. This dedication to excellence not only enhances the patient experience but also enables us to provide the most accurate diagnoses and tailored treatment plans, ensuring optimal oral health outcomes for all.

ITero

An iTero scanner is a high-tech scanning device used in dentistry to create precise 3D digital renderings of a patient’s teeth and gums. It replaces the traditional, often uncomfortable, process of using messy impression materials and is especially useful for making custom dental appliances like Invisalign aligners and crowns, and for monitoring oral health over time.

CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography)

CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography, and it is an imaging technique that uses X-rays to create detailed three-dimensional images of the teeth and jaw bone. The use of digital technology allows us to keep the radiation at a minimum.

A CBCT scan allows for a more comprehensive view of the anatomy compared to traditional X-rays. It can show detailed nerve locations, hidden structures and give doctors accuracy to a tenth of a millimeter.

CBCT is commonly used in dental and maxillofacial imaging, providing detailed images of the teeth, jaw, and surrounding structures. CBCT is valuable for its ability to provide precise information for diagnosis, treatment planning, and assessment of conditions in a non-invasive manner.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays bring several advantages to general dentistry. First and foremost, they significantly reduce radiation exposure compared to traditional film X-rays, prioritizing patient safety. Digital X-rays including check up X-rays, panoramic, or CBCT (3D) X-rays and captured and processed instantly and images can be enhanced for better visualization, aiding in the detection of dental issues, such as cavities, infections, or bone loss, with greater precision. They are also easier to share with dental specialists to conveniently coordinate care when needed.

Intraoral Cameras

Digital intra-oral photography serves as a powerful communication tool in dentistry by allowing patients to see precisely what Dr. Rebottaro observes during a dental exam. These high-resolution images offer a clear and detailed view of your oral health, helping to educate and involve you in your oral conditions and treatment decisions. Furthermore, these digital photographs establish a valuable baseline for documenting any changes in oral health over time, enabling the tracking of progress or the early detection of potential issues. Importantly, unlike traditional X-rays, digital intra-oral photography is radiation-free, ensuring patient safety while providing highly detailed information that aids in delivering the best possible dental care.

Diagnodent

Dr. Rebottaro employs a Diagnodent as a highly effective decay detection tool in dentistry. This device uses laser fluorescence to detect early-stage cavities and dental caries that may not be visible to the naked eye or even on X-rays. It provides a non-invasive, painless, and quick examination, reducing the need for exploratory drilling. By detecting decay at its earliest stages, the Diagnodent enables Dr. Rebottaro to intervene with conservative treatments, preserving more of the natural tooth structure. This technology enhances diagnostic accuracy, minimizes discomfort for patients, and supports preventative dental care by addressing dental issues before they become more serious and costly to treat.

Diode Laser

Diode lasers are versatile tools in dentistry, used for various applications. They help sterilize periodontal pockets and reduce bacterial load in dental hygiene, improving gum health. In surgical procedures, diode lasers provide precision and minimize bleeding, enhancing patient outcomes in soft tissue surgeries and biopsies. Additionally, they are employed in restorative work for reshaping procedures, ultimately offering precision, comfort, and improved results across multiple facets of dental care.
