When you choose a dental practice to get your oral concerns addressed, you will look into various factors such as how experienced the dentist is, what services they offer, what technological advancements they possess, etc. At our dental practice in San Ramon, we check all the right boxes to ensure we provide the best quality dental care to our patients. We like to call our services' High-End Dentistry' as something of high quality but affordable.
We pride ourselves on providing dental restorations in a single visit to our practice, thanks to CEREC. The conventional method of fabricating dental restorations is by taking scans and x-rays of the mouth, using the data to create an impression of the teeth, and manufacturing the restoration using it as reference. It could easily take up to two weeks before the restoration is finished and bonded to your teeth. But, with CEREC, this process can be done in a flash.
We will scan your teeth using a hand-held scanner and pass the data through a computer. The technology backing CEREC would instantly create a 3D model of your teeth, which the dentist can use to get virtually an unlimited number of views. The chairside CAD/CAM machine uses the data from the scans and mills out the restoration from a small block of dental-grade ceramic. We will extract it, make minor modifications if required, and bond it to your tooth. The entire procedure can be completed in a few hours, putting the conventional method to shame.
Many fear x-rays due to the risk of sustaining tissue damage from radiation. This would have been a genuine concern a few decades ago, but not now. Dental x-ray technology has been improved so much in the last few years that the radiation produced by the device is negligible. The detail in the images captured is stunning and extremely accurate. We use them to diagnose tooth roots, jawbone structure, root canal cavity, teeth alignment, tumors, etc.
Earlier, dentists used to treat gum disease, such as periodontitis, by surgically removing the decayed soft tissues and treating the disease using antibiotic medication. This procedure would be excruciating and requires long healing periods. We wouldn't like to put our patients through such an experience, which is why we perform the procedure using laser treatment. Dentists use a highly intense laser beam to vaporize the infected tissues while leaving the adjoining healthy ones unharmed and seal the wound instantly by the laser itself, preventing bleeding and the need for sutures. Also, it reduces the healing period to a few days as opposed to a few weeks.
We request you to schedule a consultation with our dentist to get all your oral concerns addressed at the earliest. Please call us at (925) 244-9770 or schedule an online consultation, and we'll be happy to help.
