Technology You Can Count On
Recent dental advances help Dr. Guerra to protect and correct teeth like never before, saving teeth that would have been extracted only a few years ago. Here are a few of the breakthrough services he offers:
DIAGNOdent® — This laser cavity detector is one of the latest, state-of-the-art advances for protecting your teeth. DIAGNOdent® can detect cavities too small to be seen by conventional means by scanning your teeth with a painless beam of light. It is especially useful for diagnosing decay on the chewing surfaces of your teeth. These usually very small cavities can then be restored before they further develop. DIAGNOdent® is used in conjunction with our other diagnostic tools.
Intra-oral Camera with computer enhancement — you can have great confidence in the treatment recommendations you receive from Dr. Guerra. He will review your problem areas and graphically display them on a computer monitor in order to discuss with you in detail and develop your treatment plan.
Microscope enhanced/endodontic dentistry — Dr. Guerra is proud to offer this level of care for root canals. Using a powerful surgical microscope to increase visibility from 10 up to 24 times, Dr. Guerra can help you avoid endodontic problems months or years before they could be ever detected by traditional methods.
Cone Beam 3D Scanner
Cone Beam 3D Scans make getting the right image easier than ever before. The latest technology to help dentists truly discover what is happening in your mouth is the #D cone beam scanner. X-rays form the shape of a cone and circle around the patient’s head, and the scanner captures more than 500 individual images. This gives Dr Guerra the ability to assess and plan your crown placement.
The CBCT scanner provides complete and accurate imaging, CBCT is used whenever a 3D view is advantageous for diagnosis, or the continued management of conditions in the jaw.
The CBCT technology is advantageous because it offers
- A lower radiation dose than a medical CT
- Comfortable for patients – the patient is not enclosed for the shorter than 30-second scan
- Images are seen on the screen almost immediately
