Our Technology

At New Smiles Studio, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality dental care using the latest technologies and techniques. Our state-of-the-art equipment and advanced techniques allow us to provide you with faster, more comfortable, and more effective treatments. Below, we’ve highlighted some of the technologies we use to enhance your dental experience.

Digital X-rays 

Digital X-rays are a critical tool in the diagnosis and treatment of dental problems. Unlike traditional X-rays, digital X-rays produce images that are clearer, faster, and safer for the patient. Digital X-rays also emit less radiation than traditional X-rays, making them a safer option for our patients.

Intra-Oral Cameras 

Intra-oral cameras are small cameras that allow us to get a closer, more detailed look at your teeth and gums. With an intra-oral camera, we can easily show you any areas of concern and help you understand the best course of treatment for your individual needs.

Intra-Oral Scanners

At our dental practice, we understand that taking traditional impressions with putty can be an uncomfortable and messy process for our patients. That’s why we have invested in the latest technology to make your experience more comfortable and efficient. Our intra-oral scanner, the Medit scanner, allows us to take digital impressions of your teeth and gums, eliminating the need for traditional putty impressions.

The Medit scanner is a state-of-the-art device that uses high-tech imaging technology to create a 3D digital model of your teeth and gums. This process is quick, accurate, and comfortable for our patients. Instead of having to bite down on messy putty, the scanner takes digital images of your teeth and gums with a small wand, capturing even the smallest details. This results in a highly accurate impression that we can use to create custom restorations for your teeth.

With the Medit scanner, we can take digital impressions for a wide range of dental treatments, including crowns, bridges, implants, and Invisalign. The digital impressions are stored in our computer system, which allows us to easily access and share them with our lab partners or specialists as needed. This makes the entire process more efficient and streamlined, which ultimately leads to a better experience for our patients.

Cone Beam CT

The Cone Beam CT scanner is a state-of-the-art device that uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam to capture detailed images of your mouth and jaw. This allows us to see the structure of your teeth and bones in 3D, which is incredibly useful when planning complex dental procedures such as dental implants or full mouth rehabilitation. With this information, we can create a precise treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs and anatomy.

Using the Cone Beam CT scanner is a quick and comfortable process for our patients. You simply sit in a chair while the scanner rotates around your head, taking images from multiple angles. The images are then combined to create a 3D model of your mouth and jaw, which we can view on a computer screen.

The Cone Beam CT scanner is an invaluable tool for planning dental implant procedures. It allows us to accurately measure the amount of bone available for implant placement, as well as identify any potential complications, such as nerves or sinus cavities. This information helps us create a detailed surgical plan that minimizes risks and ensures a successful outcome.

In addition to dental implants, the Cone Beam CT scanner is also useful for planning full mouth rehabilitation procedures, such as full mouth reconstructions or orthodontic treatments. By providing us with detailed 3D images of your mouth and jaw, we can create a precise treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals.

Ultrasonic Scalers 

Ultrasonic scalers are specialized tools that use high-frequency sound waves to remove plaque, tartar, and other deposits from your teeth. Ultrasonic scalers are more effective and efficient than traditional scaling instruments, and they can help you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.

At New Smiles Studio, we are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality dental care to help you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. If you have any questions about the technologies we use, or if you would like to schedule an appointment with our experienced dentist, Dr. Melanie Marshall, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to help!
