iTero Digital Scanner
The iTero digital scanning system create fasts, precise, 3D digital images of your teeth. This is extremely useful for mapping out precise treatment plans for Invisalign, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new beautiful smile! Digital scanning produces a much more accurate, seamless fit, which shortens your treatment time and allows us to better predict and manage your new, straight smile!
Formlabs 3-D Printer
We use this state of the art 3-D printer to quickly and easily print surgical guides for use in placing implants. Having the 3-D printer in our office reduces our patient’s wait times, as it allows us to print these guides rather than having to send them off to a lab. We can also 3-D print nightguards and many other items used in our daily procedures.
At Atlanta Dental Spa, ALL of our x-rays are digital, even our panaromic x-ray machine. Our x-ray system is a computerized imaging system that utilizes an electronic sensor instead of X-ray film. The sensors produce sharp and clear images that appear almost instantly on a computer screen. Digital x-rays use up to 90% less radiation than conventional film X-rays.
Digital, Environmentally-Friendly Offices
We have created a dental office that is as environmentally friendly as possible. We utilize all-digital charting for paper reduction, digital X-rays to reduce processing chemicals and radiation, bamboo flooring to combat the effects of deforestation, and Energy Star lighting to reduce energy consumption.
Laser Cavity Detection
Atlanta Dental Spa uses a machine called a Diagnodent. This device aids in the detection of cavities. Even small lesions are detected at the earliest stage, enabling you to protect and preserve the tooth substance. Research has indicated that early cavities won’t show up on x-rays and are almost undetectable using conventional detection methods. Diagnodent works by sending laser light in the tooth and indicates the degree of decay associated with that tooth.
Atlanta Dental Spa offers nitrous oxide for those patients who request it. Nitrous oxide helps ease the anxiety of your dental visit and is proven to aid in pain reduction, as well as lessen the amount of local anesthetic you may need for a given procedure. Levels can be easily adjusted for the best possible effect for each individual patient.
Computer imaging can be used to show what Atlanta Dental Spa can do for your smile. Using digital photos we can use software to place the smile design of your choice onto the image of your face. We’ll even give you a copy of your before image and the simulated after image! Being able to see the beautiful “after” effect can help make a decision about the smile design program that is right for you.
Computerized Anesthetic Delivery System
We use computerized anesthetic delivery devices. These are lightweight handpieces that look like a pen. They virtually eliminate the pain you get from injections and serve as a representation of the first major technological advance in anesthetic delivery since the syringe was first invented nearly one hundred fifty years ago. This computer controlled “Novocaine” delivery system conquers fear of pain and anxiety.
