Digital Dentistry Q & A

What is digital dentistry?

Digital dentistry is a broad term that describes the new and advanced treatment and diagnostic technologies in use at Arnica Dental.

Like all areas of health care, dentistry continually finds new, computer-based solutions that improve the experience of visiting a dentist. Digital dentistry can help to reduce pain and discomfort, improve accuracy, and speed up diagnosis and recovery.

Using digital dentistry, Dr. Vasilev can identify issues affecting your teeth and jaws at the very earliest stage, making it possible to treat problems before they cause significant decay or tooth loss.

Arnica Dental also uses digital dentistry for treatment planning and to coordinate minimally invasive procedures.

What kinds of digital dentistry services are there?

Arnica Dental provides several state-of-the-art digital dentistry services, including:

Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT)

CBCT is an advanced form of X-ray technology that produces highly detailed images of the inside of your teeth and jaws. It's invaluable for detecting dental conditions at an early stage and accessing areas that aren't visible using regular X-rays.

Digital X-ray

Arnica Dental has digital X-ray facilities on-site. Digital X-ray uses much lower levels of radiation to produce exceptionally accurate images.

Invisalign® scanner

Invisalign invisible aligners are an effective, aesthetically pleasing alternative to braces for straightening teeth. Dr. Vasilev uses Invisalign's digital scanning technology to ensure your aligners are a perfect fit.

You can also benefit from advanced laser dentistry at Arnica Dental.

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry uses a narrow, highly-focused beam of light energy. When the laser light makes contact with your teeth and gums, it causes a reaction that enables Dr. Vasilev to reshape or remove the tissue.

Lasers have numerous uses in dental care, including:

  • Treating gum disease
  • Crown lengthening
  • Frenectomy
  • Gingivectomy (cosmetic gum recontouring)
  • Cold sore therapy
  • Bacterial reduction

Dr. Vasilev also uses lasers to prepare your teeth for fillings – a nicer, more comfortable method than traditional drilling.

Laser energy is noninvasive, so you avoid incisions and stitches. As a result, you heal faster after your treatment.
