OUR HIGH TECH, STATE-OF-THE-ART DENTAL TECHNOLOGY
Computer-Guided Implant Dentistry:
We are proud to offer the highest quality dental care possible by using state-of-the-art equipment, techniques, and procedures. Sophisticated equipment helps us diagnose potential problems, communicate treatment needs, and plan effective treatment designed especially for you. Here are examples of the technology we use for your benefit.
This precise, computer-driven technology helps to assure accuracy and enhance the speed of treatment as we apply your customized implant plan.
Digital Shade Matching:
Precise Digital Shade Matching measures the shade of your teeth with the click of a button to assure your restoration matches your remaining teeth, or will match other aspects of more extensive restorations, whether existing or new.
In our practice, all of our radiographs (X-rays of your bone and teeth) use this technology which is more accurate and exposes our patients to significantly less radiation than other traditional technologies. The images are easily viewed on the computer monitors in every patient suite so we can view any challenges to your smile, teeth, and bone health together.
This technology allows us to photograph the inside of your mouth for a more accurate diagnosis of any dental issues. Projected onto a color monitor located in each patient suite, the image can be fully enlarged to a 17 monitor screen size so that you and Dr. Weierbach can view any potential issues together. The camera is a vital tool for our diagnostic and patient communication process.
Our Education videos are an innovative, communicative aid used to explain the different procedures we perform. For example, if your treatment plan includes veneers, the Professor will show you that procedure step-by-step.
Fiber Optics and Magnification:
We use fiber optic hand pieces and magnification during our dental procedures to ensure the highest quality of care, precision, and fit.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas):
Nitrous Oxide is available for the comfort of our patients.
All rooms are equipped with Ipod touches and noise cancelling headphones to enjoy while having their dental procedure.
i-CAT CBCT Scanner:
The i-CAT CBCT Scanner system gives our oral and maxillofacial practice state-of-the-art technology to help Dr. Weierbach diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provided precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation. Our new 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits. Our new 3D scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern. The i-CAT CBCT Scanner system brings the latest 3D technology to Lancaster Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail aids in treatment planning and help us better explain the particulars of your case and address any questions you might have. Dr. Weierbach can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
