Many dentists use air-driven “hand-pieces” (the dental term for “drills”). While acceptable for many procedures, these “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 hand-pieces. This results in extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration (crown, veneer, or filling). This will bring more comfort to you as well. With a more precise tool, there is less vibration and less noise.
At Ventura Center for Dental Health, our patients’ health is our top priority. In our effort to continually provide our patients with the highest standard of care, we offer the most state-of-the-art technology including digital X-rays and a 3D Ultra-Low Dose CBCT Scanner. Digital X-rays and our scanner allow Drs. Fisch, Mizraji and Sastiel to capture detailed images of a patient’s mouth and jaw using a small sensor. Providing instant images on a chairside LCD screen, these advanced technologies reduce radiation exposure by up to 90%, and allow us to better educate our patients about their treatment. The real-time information provided by Digital X-rays andour 3D CBCT Scanner allows patients to make better decisions with regard to their dental health. Drs. Fisch, Mizraji and Sastiel use Digital X-rays for procedures including dental implants and cosmetic procedures.
In order to continually provide our patients with the highest standard of dental care, we offer the most advanced dental technology available including the intraoral camera. An intraoral camera is a tiny video camera that looks very much like a pen.
Drs. Fisch, Mizraji and Sastiel will use this tiny, sterilized probe to capture detailed images of the inside of your mouth. We will then show you the images captured so you can see exactly what the doctor sees, as well as have a better understanding of the health of your teeth and gums. This state-of-the-art technology also enables us to maintain the most up-to-date records of your treatment.
Intraoral cameras are painless and allow patients to see problems with their teeth and/or gums including tarnished or corroded fillings, fractured teeth, decay, bleeding gums and plaque. With this technology at our fingertips, the Doctors and the patient are able to work together to determine the right treatment plan to restore their mouth to optimal health.
Benefits of Intraoral Cameras:
- Provides patients a better understanding of their dental needs by being able to see exactly what the doctor sees.
- Allows us to recognize potential problems early that could possibly be missed by a visual examination.
- Allows us to effectively monitor a patient’s treatment progress.
X-RITE COLOR SHADE ANALYSIS (PRECISION SHADE SELECTION FOR BEAUTIFUL SMILES)
Drs. Fisch, Mizraji and Sastiel use the most technologically advanced computer, called a spectrograph, to obtain the precise color, light and shape of their patients’ teeth. The data from the computer is sent to special dental laboratories that have unique software and equipment to create beautiful porcelain restorations that blend in beautifully with each patient’s smile. This technique results in a precise match for each tooth – holding up shade colors next to a patient’s tooth is a thing of the past! Specifically, Drs. Fisch, Mizraji and Sastiel use X-Rite ShadeVision to help create your perfect smile.
