IntraOral Cameras and Scanners
As your dentist, it’s our job to assess the condition of your mouth and identify potential problems as early as possible. This is why we use the most cutting-edge dental technology to capture images of your mouth.
The CEREC intraoral camera surpasses other types of dental cameras with its accurate, speed, and precision. Its innovative Smart Pixel Sensor processes more than 1,000,000 3D points per second, producing photorealistic and highly accurate data about the inside of your mouth. This is especially important to identify dental problems not visible to the naked eye.
Our team at Sycamore Dental utilizes the CEREC intraoral scanner to take fast, easy digital impressions of a single tooth, the entire jaw, and anything in between. These high precision scans capture the smallest nuances of every single tooth and gum surface, allowing for the creation of highly detailed crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and more.
Best of all for our patients, you don’t need to endure messy, uncomfortable molds and trays. The CEREC intraoral scanner completes a full jaw impression, including model calculations, in just two or three minutes. Whether you find yourself needing same day dental crowns or gum disease treatment, we have the advanced imaging technology capable of delivering optimal results.
At Sycamore Dental, it is our goal to provide superior, accurate diagnoses for every patient. Advanced technologies like the Schick digital x-ray intraoral sensors make it possible for our team to do this by obtaining x-ray images using minimal exposure.
These digital sensors provide industry-leading resolution for crisp, detailed images that provide incredible clarity and sharpness. We use these images to closely examine and assess the health of your mouth and oral structures. Whether it’s gum disease, cavities, or jaw bone degradation, the Schick sensors can help our team identify the problem and plan a successful treatment protocol.
Sycamore Dental also uses the DIAGNOdent, a cavity detection pen that identifies the exact points of decay in the mouth.
Even when other dentists might assume your tooth is healthy because the outer surface is intact, we use the DIAGNOdent’s laser fluorescence detection to uncover potential decay in the pit and fissure areas of the tooth. By using this advanced detection tool, our team is able to provide easy, simple, painless diagnosis of cavities to ensure early detection and effective treatment.
CBCT 3D Imaging
Our advanced cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) 3D Sinus Scanning technology helps our team diagnose, treat, and monitor oral conditions with superior image quality and low radiation doses. This medical imaging technique uses x-rays that form a cone to achieve 3D images of the mouth, jaw, sinuses, and more.
At Sycamore Dental, we use 3D imaging to address a wide range of oral conditions and challenges, including:
- Abscessed Teeth
- Periodontal Disease
- Sinus Diagnostics
- Impacted teeth
- Cleft Palate and Malformation of the Jaw
- Diagnosis and therapy of temporomandibular joint dysfunctions (TMD)
- Sleep Apnea Airway Analysis
- Implant Placement Planning
- Endodontic Therapy Planning
In just one scan that lasts 14 seconds, this advanced device gathers the images and data we need to make informed diagnoses and confident treatment plans from start to finish. Whether you have chronic sinus infections or bone loss in the jaw, the team at Sycamore Dental can use a 3D scan to ensure you receive the best and most efficient oral care possible.
Same Day Dentistry
The team at Sycamore Dental is proud to offer crowns, bridges, onlays, and inlays using cutting edge CEREC technology. Our experienced dentists have treated patients at every stage of tooth damage and loss, and CEREC makes it easier than ever for us to perform treatments rapidly and efficiently.
The CEREC technology is so advanced that it grinds and mills restorations to perfect detail in an average of 4 to 12 minutes. This means you can get a complete crown in just one visit without any temporary device or follow-up visit required!
Mobile Room UVC Germicidal Lamp
At Sycamore Dental, our goal is to minimize the risk of transmission of any pathogen, and create a safe environment for both our patients and staff. We have implemented the uses of a hospital grade germicidal UVC lamp to sanitize all rooms in the office. This lamp uses a wavelength of light that breaks down and destroys the DNA bonds of microbes and viruses, effectively destroying all of them. This same lamp used in hospital operating rooms after surgeries to destroy any remaining pathogens in the air or on surfaces including bacteria, mold spores and viruses to create a 100% sterile environment for the next patient.
HyperHEPA Air Filtration
Each room at Sycamore Dental has an IQAir HealthPro Series air filtration unit. This unit features HyperHEPA filtration technology for superior airborne particle removal. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration is tested and certified by an independent third-party lab to effectively filter 99.5% of harmful ultrafine pollution particles down to 0.003 microns in size. This is 100 times smaller than what is achieved with ordinary air filtration technology and 10 times smaller than a virus.
Ultrafine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns, make up about 90% of all airborne particles, and have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma, and even cancer. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration in the HealthPro Series is proven and certified to filter at least 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist.
