Our practice utilizes high power microscopes to enhance the precision of the dental care we provide for our patients.
Dentistry is micro-surgery. Using a microscope that is similar to an ophthalmologist’s enables us to create dental restorations with incredibily precise fit and finish. You just can’t fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.
As an additional benefit, the microscope directs a beam of light directly on the teeth, minimizing glare to our patients.
Many dentists use air-driven “hand-pieces” (the dental term for “drills”). While acceptable for many procedures, these “whiney sounding” air powered hand pieces all have a degree of non-concentricity; they do not rotate perfectly smoothly.
For the most precise aspects of restorative procedures, we use electric hand-pieces. This results in extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration (crown, veneer, or filling). This will bring more comfort to you as well. With a more precise tool, there is less vibration and less noise.
