Every important tool incorporated into our practice has been to improve safety, comfort, and diagnostic capability for our patients. Let us share with you what these new technologies mean for you.

 

Communication

One of the technological innovations we have introduced is our e-mail confirmation system. I've had so many patients tell me just how effective it is and how much they appreciate it.

With this system, you'll receive an e-mail message 30 days before your appointment reminding you of the date and time of your next visit. Then, four days prior to the appointment, you'll receive a second confirming e-mail and if you prefer even a text message, just to make sure. If there are any questions about your appointment you can simply respond by e-mail and let us know. Or you only need to click on CONFIRM to let us know that you are coming. It's another way we've found to keep the focus of the practice on your convenience.

 

Imaging

First, as you may know, digital radiography is a new X-Ray technology that eliminates film. When you have X-Rays taken in our office with the award winning DEXIS system, you won't have to wait for X-Ray film to be developed. You'll immediately see a digital X-Ray image on a large-screen computer, very near the chair you're sitting in. There's no waiting for film to be developed, so you don't waste your time.

But even more important, digital radiography exposes you to up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional film X-Rays do. It's much safer than the old technology. And with this important new tool, you'll be involved in treatment planning much more than before. The large images, combined with tools that enable us to highlight potential problem areas on the screen so you can see and understand them.

 

Sopro Intraoral Camera and Caries Detector

At Oral Health Solutions we provide imaging with the advanced non-invasive intraoral camera from Sopro™ for our patients.

Our operatories are equipped with an advanced intraoral camera from Sopro™(France)- the Sporocare™. The camera utilizes unique fluorescence technology to illuminate dental tissue to reveal caries as well as new and old dental plaque.

In addition, SOPROCARE™ is the first product on the market to reveal gingival inflammation. SOPROCARE™ can also be used as a camera, providing all of the necessary tools to perform a complete and time efficient oral examination.

Extra-Oral Camera

We use a Nikon SLR camera equipped with a macro lens and special flash, that allows us to take high quality pictures of our patients’ mouths. These can then be used to communicate with our dental laboratory, other specialists or our patients.

 

Advanced Diagnostics

DIAGNOdent by Kavo is a revolutionary laser-based diagnostic tool that enables us to discover hidden caries, or cavities, that might otherwise be missed using normal diagnostic tools. DIAGNOdent is especially useful in identifying hidden caries that have begun to form underneath the enamel surface but are not yet developed enough to show up even on our powerful digital X-Ray system.

DIAGNOdent consists of a display that is connected to a pen which either the hygienists or the dentist can use to scan your teeth. Our visual and radiographic evaluation can be significantly more accurate with the use of KaVo's DIAGNOdent caries detection aid. Even very small lesions are detected at the earliest stage, enabling us to protect and preserve the tooth substance.

 

VELscope® System - Oral Cancer Screening

Here at Oral health solutions we are proud to have incorporated the VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening System into our dental practice for initial and dental hygiene treatment visits.

Known as The Forgotten Disease, each hour of every day a person dies of oral cancer in the United States. Oral cancer strikes three times as many victims as cervical cancer. It is one of the few types of cancer that has not seen a significant reduction in incidence over the past thirty years. Most people think one has to smoke or drink heavily to be at risk of oral cancer, but recent research including the New England Journal of Medicine has shown a strong association with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which can be sexually transmitted.

We utilize this FDA approved screening device called the VELscope® System which adds only one or two minutes to a conventional examination.

The VELscope® System can also help discover abnormal growths before they become cancerous. Now the VELscope® System will help us see things we could have missed as it can detect abnormal cells lurking below the surface.
