Our state of the art technologies are paving the way of dentistry. We’ve added 3D printing, same day crowns, 3D modeling, 3D Volumetric Xray, and diagnodent lasers so that you as a patient can benefit from quick in house care unlike any other dentist in the valley.
We offer a handful of services using our 3D printing technologies:
Highly Accurate Dental Models
Previously if you needed let’s say Ortho aligners you’d have to take a mold of your mouth, send it into an out of house service to produce the trays, and wait days until you have to go back to the practice and pick up your trays. With 3D printing we can print things like Ortho aligners within a matter of minutes.
3D printing in dentistry is still a pretty new technology. Advances in the technology are improving every day with new features, and services. Contact us today to learn more…
The technologies allows the Dr.’s to virtually place implants in preparation for surgical cases. 3D Imaging delivers details that may give extra understanding of any given diagnosis. There is more flexibility to see what is happening in your facial bones and teeth. AFDC was the first office in Arizona and the 5th in the country to have this machine and bring it’s benefits to it’s patients.
WHY USE IMAGING
3D Imaging equips our offices with state-of-the-art technology that helps diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation.
X-Rays are a great way to find preventative oral issues:
Evaluate the tooth roots
Check the health of the bony area around the tooth
Determine if periodontal disease is an oral care issue
Observe the status of developing teeth
The benefits of X-rays are well known: They help our dentists diagnose common problems, such as cavities, gum disease and some types of infections. Radiographs allow dentists to see inside a tooth and beneath the gums to assess the health of the bone and supporting tissues that hold teeth in place. There are a number of X-rays a dental professional can order. The type of X-ray needed will depend greatly on the type of care the patient needs to receive.
Today’s X-ray equipment is able to eliminate unnecessary radiation and allows the dentist to focus the X-ray beam on a specific part of the mouth. High-speed film enables the dentist to reduce the amount of radiation the patient receives.
Same-day dental crowns are the most modern technology available in dental restoration. Patients, their teeth, and their smiles stand to gain numerous benefits from same-day crowns.
A crown, sometimes known as dental cap, is a type of dental restoration which completely covers or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth.
Before Aesthetic Family Dental Care crowns often took days to produce, and would require a temporary crown that you would have for about two weeks before returning for a second visit in order to have the permanent crown delivered. With our focus on technology we’ve been able to create a way so that if a crown is needed we can create and deliver that crown while you are sitting in our chair. One visit, one procedure, no added stress or frustration.
Our crowns are made with ceramic materials, and contain no metal. Which means more strength and a much more aesthetic appeal so that when you open your mouth no one knows the crown is there.
Many feel self-conscious when smiling and laughing, embarrassed that their teeth seem too short and their gums seem too long. We use modern technology to reshape gum lines to create stunning smiles. Using our precise soft tissue Laser system, our dentists safely remove excess gum tissues while aesthetically lengthening the look of your teeth.
This procedure helps patients whose gums are uneven or cover too much of their teeth. This may be caused by genetics or the use of certain prescription medications. It can also be appropriate in cases where the patient’s gums have receded, exposing more tooth surface than necessary.
The patient receives a mild local anesthetic to numb the gums, and uses a soft tissue laser to trip away the excess gum tissue.
Reshaping costs range from $600 to $2000, it all depends on the need of the patient.
