The Zoom! Whitening procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The Zoom! clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom! Whitening Gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You’ll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure.

How the Zoom! In-Office System Works!

The Zoom! light activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom! light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for many years.

ScanX Digital X-ray System

Our practice is committed to bringing the safest and highest quality of care to our patients. The installation of our new digital X-ray system continues that commitment. Using the state-of-the-art ScanX system enables us to provide greatly improved diagnostic capabilities to our patients while significantly lessening their exposure to radiation by up to 80 percent over the old film X-rays. We know this will be very important to many.

Wscanx-laptophile traditional film X-rays have been the standard for diagnosing dental problems for the past 90 years, digital X-rays offer substantial benefits over film. Our patients find it is more comfortable than film, and it’s a real time-saver over the old technology.

Digital X-ray technology also enables our patients to see for themselves the dental conditions. The digital X-ray image is instantly displayed on a large computer screen and can be enhanced and magnified to show conditions such as cavities or structural weaknesses in teeth. It’s a wonderful tool for helping our patients fully understand their treatment options.

This line represents a fractured tooth that is unrestorable and must be extracted. It is this type of detail and information that we are able to view with digital x-rays.

We Find Tooth Decay The Easy Way

You may not realize it, but even the tiniest spot of decay can mean trouble for your teeth. That’s why we take such care to identify and fill cavities: it’s the key to preventing all kinds of trouble down the road. In the past, diligent decay identification has required lengthy poking and prodding sessions. Unfortunately, even the best of such methods of decay detection are only 50% to 75% successful. Cavities can hide inside little fissures that occur on most back teeth. Further, mechanical exploratory methods typically find only those cavities that are equal to or larger than the probe head. For all these reasons, we’ve recently invested in DIAGNOdent: a revolutionary new means of detecting cavities that gives us diagnodent-unitincredibly accurate and thorough information.

Reflection And Revelation

DIAGNOdent technology inspects your teeth using a simple laser diode, comparing reflection wavelength to a known healthy baseline wavelength, thus uncovering decay. the process is simple. first, we direct the laser onto a healthy enamel tooth surface to provide the benchmark reading. then, we move the diode around your mouth, shining the laser into all suspect areas. as the laser pulses into grooves, fissures and cracks, it reflects a specific wavelength of fluorescent light. at the same time, this light is measured by receptors, converted to an acoustic signal, evaluated electronically to reveal a value between one and 100, then displayed on a screen. whenever the laser encounters a discrepancy between a tooth surface and the healthy baseline value, it stimulates emission of a different fluorescent light wavelength. a reading of 10-20 indicates that there has been some enamel softening, pointing to a potential problem area that merits close monitoring. a reading of 21-100 indicates a definite area of decay requiring an immediate filling.diagnodent-process

A Timely Tool

DIAGNOdent technology gives us a tool for catching decay with more thoroughness, timeliness, and accuracy. Further, it requires no x-rays, so our staff doesn’t have to spend valuable patient care time in the darkroom. Plus, it’s a relatively simple and comfortable procedure. Not only does it help prevent the spread of decay, but it helps us to treat your teeth more conservatively as well: when we spot decay sooner, the necessary fillings are typically simpler and shallower, preserving more of the tooth. Finally, we can easily and objectively monitor any suspicious areas without repeated x-rays, harm to tissues, or need for protective measures.
