At Fay Periodontal Associates, we pride ourselves on staying up-to-date on the most advanced periodontal technology available today. Our use of cutting-edge technology allows us to better prevent, diagnose, and treat periodontal problems.
Digital Intraoral Cameras
An intraoral camera allows us to take a digital impression of your teeth and gums. This device takes hundreds of photos per second to produce a detailed, colored, and three-dimensional visualization of your mouth. Digital impressions have revolutionized the way we place dental implants. It can also give us a detailed look at minor instances of tooth decay and gum disease.
Ultrasonic Scaler and Electric Handpieces
Ultrasonic scalers are used to perform cleanings. The scaler produces ultrasonic vibration that loosens plaque and debris from the tooth and root surfaces.
Oral Cancer Screening
An oral cancer screening is a precautionary measure that can give you peace of mind. We use the latest diagnostic tools during our screenings to provide a more comfortable and effective experience. We may recommend screening if you are at a greater risk for developing cancer due to factors like genetics and poor personal habits.
Cone beam computed tomography, or CBCT scans, are an important diagnostic tool. Unlike traditional dental x-rays, a CBCT scan gives us a 3D view of your teeth, supportive bone, and soft tissues. This can be immensely beneficial during the treatment planning for dental implants and other surgical procedures. We may also recommend a scan to help us better diagnose periodontal problems that are not initially visible to the naked eye.
Guided Implant Surgery
CBCT technology is an important part of a revolutionary system known as guided dental implant navigation. This 3D navigation system allows us to improve the precision and accuracy of implant placement. Using a CBCT scan and the guided implany surgery system, Dr. Ann Fay can develop a surgical guide tailored to your smile.
