When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Steven Melman, Dr. Howard Alexander, Dr. Julie Haveri and their staff utilize the latest in dental technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care. One such technology we employ is high-power microscopes which greatly enhance the precision and accuracy of patient care.
Besides, while many dentists still rely on air-driven hand-pieces (commonly known as drills), we prefer using electric hand-pieces for the most accurate aspects of restorative procedures at our practice. With this more precise tool, there is less vibration and less noise.
Radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Dr. Steven Melman, Dr. Howard Alexander, and Dr. Julie Haveri follow specific guidelines and choose carefully which and when radiographs are taken.
Our dentists use Digital Imaging Technologies within the office, which reduces the exposure time to about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Besides, digital imaging allows dentists to capture high-resolution X-rays and intraoral photographs, allowing for a closer examination of oral structures. They can also be easily stored in electronic databases or shared with specialists when necessary.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays result in 1/6th of the radiation exposure to you.
Dr. Steven Melman, Dr. Howard Alexander, and Dr. Julie Haveri utilize intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth, and gums, in order for us to make a diagnosis accurately. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that standard mirror examinations may miss. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair time for you! Intraoral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments.
Same-day dentistry refers to the use of advanced computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems to offer restorative treatments like customized crowns, veneers, bridges, or implant chairside, in a single dental visit. Powered by sophisticated software algorithms optimizing every step of the process – from scanning and designing to milling – same-day dentistry ensures unrivaled accuracy while achieving optimal fit and function.
Same-day crowns offer patients the convenience of receiving high-quality dental crowns in just one visit to the dentist. Using state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology, these crowns are meticulously designed and milled on-site, eliminating the need for multiple appointments and temporary restorations.
