At Palmieri Dentistry, our patients can experience the latest in dental technology for a faster visit and for more effective dental treatments. Our technology not only helps during the treatment, but during the diagnosis, planning, and recovery. Visit our Mooresville dental office to see how dental technology is improving your visits with us.
Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal, is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often since they are infected and the tooth is causing pain. Rotary Endodontics is a way of performing the root canal utilizing a specific electrical hand piece. This tool often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to perform the process with greater ease. The flexibility of the tool allows for it to be inserted deeply into the root canal without damaging or stretching the passageway. This method keeps patients feeling comfortable throughout the entire procedure.
DIAGNOdent laser caries detector helps dentists diagnose caries more effectively. This allows for earlier diag nosis which makes treatment plans more effective and thought out. Using the DIAGNOdent helps dentists find caries that lay under the surface of the enamel more effectively than with x-rays alone. This method is pain-free and does not expose patients to radiation. It also gives the dentist an exact idea of how large the cavity is, allowing for a more precise treatment plan of action.
Intraoral cameras allow the dentist to get a better picture of what is going on inside your mouth, especially in the hard to see areas that are not visible to the naked eye or with a mirror. Our intraoral camera assists us with proper diagnosis and treatment plans. It shows close-up images of the gums and of the teeth to see as much as possible.
We have a complete photo studio in our dental office to take proper before and after pictures of our patients to display in our smile gallery. We also want patients to show off their investment to family and friends if they choose to! Our photo studio is also used with our Digital Design Studio Simulation where patients get to see what their results will look like. At the end of your treatment, we will compare your before pictures to your designed pictures with your actual final results.
Planmeca Cad Cam Same-Day Crowns
One of our patient’s favorite technology in our office is the Planmeca Cad Cam. With this machine, patients are fitted with a permanent crown the same day as their procedure. This prevents them from wearing an uncomfortable temporary crown for weeks at a time. It also means they only need to visit us once as opposed to twice. The Planmeca Cad Cam machine takes digital impressions of the tooth and creates a natural looking crown with a perfect fit within minutes inside our office.
3D X-Ray Technology
3D x-rays take a complete image of your mouth instead of multiple 2-D images. This technique takes less times and gives dentists more information about what is going on in your mouth because it captures more angles. Our dentists use this x-ray technology to assist with dental implants placement and treatment planning. In addition, it assists with our same-day dental crowns.
Soft Tissue Laser
Soft tissue lasers are becoming more and more popular in dental offices due to the many benefits they offer. These include less bleeding and swelling during and after procedures, accuracy and precision, reduced trauma, a quieter treatment, and it is virtually painless. Patients who suffer from dental anxiety especially benefit from this method because there is no loud sound of the drill. Experience a more comfortable procedure with help from our soft tissue laser.
Dental Electro Surgery
Like the soft tissue laser, dental electro surgery is an alternative to traditional scalpel methods. Electro surgery is great for very precise and narrow cuts. In addition, the electrode wire can be bent for the dentist’s needs for gum contouring, smoothing of soft tissue, or contouring irregular palatal areas. This also provides a nearly painless experience for the patient.
