In addition to ongoing professional training in the latest procedures, Dr. Krochak and Dr. Perlman are committed to using the latest proven equipment and methods to provide the highest level of dental care to their patients. Here are a few examples.
Incredible technology has been developed allowing dentists to use a small intraoral camera the size of a thick pen to take photos of your teeth and directly display them onto a computer screen in the treatment room. Although you may not want to see all of the graphic details of your teeth, it is a tremendous aid in helping you understand the condition of your teeth and existing restorations. This information will empower you to help “co-diagnose” your own dental conditions and make better informed decisions as to the best course of treatment for your particular needs. In our office, we take our responsibility seriously to inform you fully of not only your conditions, but all of your options to achieve optimal health and the pros and cons of these options.
Computerized Cosmetic Imaging
After taking a digital picture of your smile, the doctors can show you the expected results of your treatment so that you have a realistic idea of what you will look like before you commit to treatment.
The newest method of x-raying your teeth drastically reduces radiation compared with film x-rays. Your x-rays are immediately processed and presented on a computer screen for instant interpretation and discussion. The images are clearer than film x-rays and can be enlarged for easier diagnosis and illustration of your condition.
The DIAGNOdent laser can accurately detect tiny cavities before they are visible on x-rays or cause significant tooth damage. Identifying these cavities at their beginning stages allows the doctors to perform minimally invasive bonding procedures to seal these areas and preserve your natural tooth structure.
Key to a good dental experience is effective, nontraumatic injection of local anesthetic. Dr. Krochak helped develop a revolutionary painless injection device that eliminates the need for hypodermic syringes, which in themselves can cause nervousness and fear. This computer-controlled local anesthesia injection system can provide a nearly painless injection. Read more ...
Invisalign Invisible Braces
Using this new technology, digital images of your teeth are scanned into a program that allows virtual orthodontics to be performed. Based on these results, a series of clear plastic aligners are fabricated to custom-fit over your teeth. The virtually invisible aligners create a steady, imperceptible orthodontic force that slowly moves your teeth into a new position without the use of any metal braces or wires. These aligners are removable so normal hygiene procedures can be performed and your periodontal health maintained.
