Dental technology is ever evolving. Dental crowns and dental implants in San Diego look like “real teeth” because of the advances made in lasers, x-rays and other applications. Following are some of the state of the art technology that helps Marcos Ortega DDS better serve their patients.
CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) are used for many restorative procedures. These include same-day inlays/onlays and crowns.
Dentists who offer dental implants can use CAD/CAM technology in every phase of the dental implant procedure.
CAD/CAM is also used in dental laboratories to construct crowns, bridges, implants, veneers, and ceramic braces.
Most dental offices use digital X-rays. Realtime digital images help dentists more easily make diagnosis. Dentists can enlarge and otherwise enhance a digital image to get a clearer picture of what’s going on.
Digital X-rays emit up to 70% less radiation. Plus, they are easier to store and access. Because they don’t require film or processing chemicals, they are more eco-friendly than conventional X-rays.
Pinpoint-precise Diode lasers are used in dental procedures including crown lengthening, root scaling, biopsies, root canals, teeth whitening, oral lesion removal, and treatment of decay.
Laser procedures often reduce the need for anesthesia. They cause less bleeding because the laser activates blood clotting. Lasers help sterilize the treatment area, minimizing the risk of an infection.
