Modern Dental Technology in Wilmette
Visiting the dentist today is a very different experience than what it used to be. Advances in technology and treatments, as well as what we understand about the mouth have transformed what it means to have a dental appointment.
From regular teeth cleanings to more advanced dental procedures, we employ the use of only the best and latest advanced dental technology at Mantis Dentistry & Implant Center, including the use of dental lasers and a CEREC same-day crown machine. The use of dental technology allows us to provide quality care to patients of all ages and walks of life.
Types of Advanced Dental Technology at Mantis Dentistry & Implant Center
When you schedule an appointment or treatment with us, you can expect the highest quality of care. Providing quality dental care is possible through both our work ethic and the technology we use.
Digital Dental X-Rays
Digital x-rays minimize the amount of radiation you are exposed to, and they allow us to upload high-quality images directly to a computer screen where we can examine them with more effectiveness than can be achieved with traditional x-rays.
Intraoral cameras allow us to show you the inside of your mouth. These small cameras can be used inside your mouth, right next to your teeth and gums, letting both you and Dr. Mantis get a detailed image of your mouth.
This advanced tool emits a certain frequency that lets us detect small cavities in the teeth that we otherwise wouldn’t be able to see with regular imaging.
Soft-Tissue Biolase Lasers
This type of dental laser allows us to treat periodontal disease, kill bacteria, and seal nerve endings and blood vessels during procedures all without using sharp metal tools. Soft-tissue dental lasers are much more clean, accurate, and effective for gum disease treatment.
This product comes in the forms of spray, mouth wash, and toothpaste. It works to neutralize acids that cause decay in the mouth.
CEREC Dental Crowns
Our CEREC machine allows us to create same-day dental crowns and other dental reconstructions in-office. With CEREC you don’t have to worry about waiting around with temporary crowns while your permanent crown gets fixed; you can get your teeth repaired all in one visit.
A CT scanner lets us take advanced, 3D images of your mouth that allow us to see everything from your teeth to your nerve pathways. This allows us to better understand and treat your oral health.
Digital impressions are the latest in image-capturing technology. Using this technology, we can create a virtual model of both the hard and soft tissues of your mouth.
