When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Zach and his staff avail themselves to the latest in technology to enhance the quality and precision fit of your dental restorations. When we implement technology, it is to improve the quality of your care.
- Precision dentistry is, when you think about it, micro-surgery. Using the same microscope that an ophthalmologist uses allows us to create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just can't do that with the naked eye, or even with the use of "loupes".
In addition to allowing precise, close up work, the microscope directs a beam of light directly on the teeth, minimizing glare to you.
Electric (not air-driven) Handpieces
Most dentists use air-driven "handpieces" (the dental term for "drills"). While acceptable for many procedures, these louder, "whiney sounding" air powered hand pieces all have a degree of non-concentricity; they do not rotate perfectly smoothly.
- For the most precise aspects of restorative procedures, we use electric handpieces. This results in extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration (crown, veneer, or filling).
- Electric is more comfortable for you, too; since it is so precise, there is less vibration and less noise.
