Advanced Dental Technology Worcester

Predictable Results with the Latest Technology

If you’re somebody who values staying up to date with the latest technology, you’ll appreciate all of the advanced instruments we use in our dental practice to make each of your visits more streamlined and precise. Our dentists go to the latest seminars and conferences to not only learn about the latest techniques in their field, but also the most advanced, clinically proven technology. By implementing this technology into our Worcester dental practice, we’re able to offer you a more positive and consistent experience.

Digital Dental Impressions

While some dentists use putty to take impressions of the mouth, our team utilizes an advanced digital impression system. Not only does it not induce gagging or an uncomfortable sensation, but it’s also more accurate and faster. Using a wand-like device, our team will maneuver a camera around the mouth to capture and create a lifelike 3D digital model of your complete oral structure. We can then send this digital file off to our dental laboratory to craft perfectly-fitting restorations, mouthguards, and more.

CT/Cone Beam Scanner

Our cone beam CT scanner is an amazing piece of technology that allows our dentists to view your facial structure in its entirety, including the underlying jawbone, facial nerves, and sinuses. All that’s required is for you to rest your chin on a designated prop for about 15 to 20 seconds. The scanner will rotate around your head to complete the imaging process, and the scan will be immediately viewable to your dentist. This device is priceless when it comes to planning more complex treatments like root canal therapy and dental implant placement.

Intraoral Camera

Similar to our digital impression system, our intraoral camera is a pen-shaped device with a small camera on the end of it that we can maneuver within the mouth. However, its purpose isn’t to take an impression, but to capture still images and video footage that we can display on a large chairside monitor to help you better understand what dental health problems you may face. These images allow us to offer you a visual explanation of our treatment recommendations and diagnoses so you feel more informed moving forward with a procedure.
