DENTSPLY SIRONA PRIMESCAN
What is the Primescan Intraoral Scanner, and How is it Used?
A dental intraoral scanner is a device that captures three-dimensional digital impressions. This scanner helps create a digital replica of the patient’s entire mouth, eliminating the need for uncomfortable, bulky impression trays that take minutes to set.
Flatiron Family Dental’s new Dentsply Sirona Primescan can take a scan and appear on the screen in seconds! It is rated the most accurate scanner on the market year after year, producing photorealistic data for the dentist and patient to view and examine — patients get to
see their scans, too!
The scanner can be used for all restorative dental needs, including crowns, bridges, and dentures, as well as clear orthodontic aligners, removable retainers, and nightguards. The Primescan Intraoral Dental Scanner is also used for yearly wellness scans to monitor and track
changes in a patient’s dental health.
CBCT 3D IMAGING SYSTEM
What is a CBCT, and How is it Used?
A CBCT (Cone-Beam Computed Tomography) is a type of imaging equipment used when traditional dental x-rays are insufficient to diagnose or treat dental complications. A CBCT offers the most accurate available three-dimensional image of a patient’s hard tissue and has become an essential asset to dentists, especially for patients in need of dental implants.
Flatiron Family Dental’s periodontist and implant specialist, Dr. Loeb, will use the CBCT to assess if a patient qualifies for the placement of dental implants.
Flatiron Family Dental’s endodontist, Dr. Burke, may use the CBCT to locate a crack in a tooth otherwise not visible or to see the root anatomy of a particular tooth before starting treatment.
Benefits of this technology
A non-intrusive method to capture an image of a patient's entire head comfortably
Increased likelihood of dental implant success
Improved diagnostic accuracy
Reduced risk of nerve damage during procedures
Decreased chair time
THE PERIOLASE® MVP-7™
What is the PERIOLASE® MVP-7™ laser and what is the LANAP® Protocol?
The LANAP protocol is a cutting-edge, patient-friendly laser-based treatment for patients with gum disease to help them achieve a healthier smile. The procedure involves no cutting and no suturing, making it more comfortable and less invasive than traditional periodontal surgery.
Cleared by the FDA in 2004, the LANAP protocol can only be done with the PerioLase® MVP-7, a laser operating at a specific wavelength that attacks the bacteria contributing to gum disease while leaving healthy tissue intact. At Flatiron Family Dental, we offer this procedure to patients to help them maintain a beautiful and healthy smile.
Benefits of Using a LANAP® Protocol Dental Laser For Patients
The LANAP® Protocol is minimally invasive and allows the body to recover and heal faster
Patients report less discomfort during and after the procedure
Little to No Gum Recession
Because the procedure doesn’t require cutting the gums, there is less risk of recession.
Minimal Recovery Time
Most patients can immediately return to their daily routine following surgery.
Patients can often retain their natural teeth, even when they have been deemed ‘hopeless’ with traditional treatments.
Reduction in Gum Inflammation and Bleeding
The PerioLase® MVP-7TM targets inflammatory bacteria without injuring healthy tissue.
Safe For Patients With Health Concerns
The LANAP® Protocol is a safe option for
patients with health concerns such as diabetes, HIV, hemophilia, or those taking blood
What is the LAPIP® Protocol?
Proven Success for Saving Implants
Protect your implant investment with a LAPIP Treatment. The LAPIP protocol is the most patient-friendly solution for those with ailing dental implants. Studies indicate 95% of implants with peri-implantitis treated with the LAPIP protocol have been able to reintegrate in the pocket
and stabilize with bone growth of 3-8 threads.
Benefits of The LAPIP Protocol For Dental Implant Restoration
Stop the progression of peri-implant disease for those with dental implants
Destroy bacteria causing inflammation
Save healthy gum tissues
Encourage new bone growth
Can the PERIOLASE® MVP-7™ laser be used for anything else?
Treatment of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder
The PerioLase can be used to administer Low Level Laster Therapy (LLLT), or biostimulation, to the TMJ and its supporting muscles to reduce inflammation and decrease pain in patients who suffer from TMD. The treatment is not invasive, only takes a few minutes to administer, and the
results can be immediate!
Benefits of TMJ Biostimulation
Relieve pain associated with TMJ
Relax TMJ muscles
Stimulate body’s natural healing response to targeted area by increased blood flow
