Technology at Buffalo Dental Group
The advanced technology at The Buffalo Dental Group has played a key role in helping us practice our ultra-conservative approach to dentistry. Investing in the most modern equipment has helped us with early detection for oral health issues, as well as allowing us to focus on only the specific damaged areas of our mouth. We would be happy to demonstrate and discuss any of our advanced equipment with you at your next visit!
Intraoral cameras and chair-side monitors let you see what's going on in your mouth. We can shine a small camera into your mouth and display the images on a conveniently located monitor. The dentists at The Buffalo Dental Group can use these tools to illustrate areas that may require treatment. We find that this helps our patients better understand their care options, as well as our reasons for concern. This is a key technology to help us practice our ultra-conservative approach. We are able to narrow down, and get an up close look at the specific areas of your teeth that need repair.
The Buffalo Dental Group uses digital technology, rather than traditional X-rays, to record images of our patients' teeth and gums. This method uses 90% less radiation than the traditional machines.
When we're planning in-depth dental procedures, it may be necessary for us to get a more detailed look at the structure of your mouth. Cone beam technology can provide The Buffalo Dental Group with a detailed map of your teeth and gums and give us more information to plan your treatment!
Many patients dislike hearing, feeling, and generally experiencing dental drills. We use air abrasion tools instead to gently spray decay away during our cavity and filling procedures. It's possible for us to treat our dental cases without the use of needles or drills with air abrasion technology.
Our CEREC machine allows The Buffalo Dental Group to create and place customized, permanent crowns in a single appointment. This means that you can skip having a temporary crown and enjoy the benefits of a naturally-colored CEREC crown right away instead!
The Buffalo Dental Group is concerned with every facet of your oral health. Our technology includes the VELscope system, which is used to conduct oral cancer screenings. This device is handheld and can be utilized for the early detection of oral cancer. This is a non-invasive procedure, and it helps us accurately identify early areas of abnormal tissue cells that have the potential to develop into cancer.
Waterlase technology allows The Buffalo Dental Group to prep gum tissue and teeth for fillings while leaving the surrounding healthy parts of your mouth untouched. This handy tool combines a dental laser with a flow of water for a precise treatment. As always, The Buffalo Dental group is dedicated to ultra-conservative dentistry.
