Modern dentistry is always developing ways to make your visits faster, easier, more comfortable, and better for the world around us. The latest advances allow for earlier, less-invasive treatment, which means faster healing times and greater precision for dental procedures. And the results can be outstanding!
Introducing Laser Dentistry
Our practice now features diode laser technology for safe and effective treatment that is virtually painless and easier than ever before! The laser is FDA approved and produces results that only a few years ago would have been considered miraculous. Many treatments that used to require scalpels or incisions can now be completed with the laser. We are able to cosmetically treat uneven gummy smile lines, speed up recovery time, clean and re-contour inflamed tissue around crowns for better long-term results, and treat painful canker sores and mouth ulcers with instant relief! All with virtually no post-op discomfort!
Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the Team
Dr. Berson works hand-in-hand with patients to create a bond of teamwork. One of the ways he brings this about is through the use of a high-tech tool, the intra-oral camera. This amazing device is a miniature video camera that displays a closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision. You’ll love how this works!
The STA System™ with The Wand™
The first computer-controlled local anesthetic system. Just one injection at a single tooth with The Wand is all that’s needed to numb an area. It lets the dentist precisely anesthetize a single tooth in only one to two minutes, rather than administering an anesthetic that numbs your entire lip. This is a more accurate and safer delivery of anesthesia. The STA works immediately, whereas the typical anesthetic can take 8 to 12 minutes, and lasts as long as traditional anesthesia. This technology has been clinically proven to provide a pain-free injection.
75% Reduction in Radiation
Introducing digital X-rays, available at our practice. With this technology, an image is taken of your mouth with a digital sensor and downloaded into our computer, where it is immediately available. We can also view your entire mouth in one shot, including the upper and lower jaws, with panoramic digital X-rays. These methods result in 75% less radiation than conventional X-rays. No more waiting for images to develop and no more chemical waste to pollute the environment.
Magnification in Dentistry – Helps Catch Problems When They are Small
Dr. Berson has extensive training and experience with the use of dental loupes for magnification that allows him to detect decay and fractures in teeth at a much earlier stage. This means more healthy tooth structure can be preserved and tooth strength is significantly increased, as fillings can be much smaller.
Goodbye Goopy Impressions
Our digital intra-oral scanner is dentistry in 3-D. With this scanner, manufactured by the 3M company, Dr. Berson is able to make accurate digital impressions for your crown or bridge area, eliminating the need in many instances for an uncomfortable tray and putty impression. He also uses the instrument for preparing Invisalign™ clear aligners and teeth-whitening trays. This technology means an even more precise fit for your new crown or bridge and improved accuracy for your clear aligner treatment plan. And you’ll spend less time at the dentist and more time enjoying your new smile!tes, and lasts as long as traditional anesthesia. This technology has been clinically proven to provide a pain-free injection.
