Dentistry with a focus on precision
When you come to our clinic for treatment, you can rest confident that Dr. Banga and his team will use the most up-to-date technologies to improve the quality and fit of your dental care.
To improve the precision of patient care, our office employs high-powered microscopes.
Dentistry is a type of microsurgery. We can manufacture dental restorations with highly exact fit and polish using a microscope comparable to that used by an ophthalmologist. With the naked eye, you just cannot provide that level of attention.
The microscope not only allows for precise close-up work, but it also concentrates a beam of light precisely onto the teeth, reducing glare for you.
Many dentists employ “hand-pieces” (the dental name for “drills”) that are powered by air. While these “whiney sounding” air-powered hand pieces are appropriate for many procedures, they all have a degree of non-concentricity; they do not rotate perfectly smoothly.
We use electric hand-pieces for the most precise components of restorative operations. As a result, the interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration are extremely accurate (dental crown, tooth veneer, or tooth filling). This will also make you feel more at ease. There is less vibration and noise with a more precise instrument.
Imaging in the Digital Age
Dr. Banga picks and chooses which radiographs to take and when. We adhere to a number of guidelines. Radiographs enable us to see what we couldn’t see with our own eyes. We can use radiographs to discover cavities between your teeth, determine bone level, and assess bone health. We can also look at the roots and nerves of teeth, identify abnormalities like cysts and tumors, and assess damage after a trauma.
Dental radiographs are extremely useful for diagnosing, treating, and maintaining oral health. Dental radiographs have a very short exposure time. In his office, Dr. Banga uses Digital Imaging Technologies. When compared to traditional radiographs, exposure time with digital imaging is about half as long. We can also use digital imaging to retrieve important diagnostic information. We might be able to notice cavities more clearly now.
Digital imaging allows us to retain patient images and send them to specialists or insurance providers fast and efficiently.
X-Rays on a Digital Scale:
Because we examine the image on a computer display rather than holding a 35mm film up to the light, digital X-rays are more precise. Digital X-rays expose you to 1/6th the amount of radiation.
Dentistry with lasers
Laser Dentistry may be the best option for people who are afraid of needles, drilling, or numbness.
One of the most recent advancements in dentistry is laser dentistry. The laser emits light as a form of energy. This energy travels at various wavelengths and is absorbed by a “target” depending on the desired outcome. Enamel, deterioration, gum tissue, and whitening boosters are all potential targets in dentistry. Each of them absorbs and reflects distinct wavelengths of light. Both tooth and soft tissue procedures can benefit from laser dentistry. There is often no need for local anesthetic. There is no heat or vibration with laser dentistry, unlike with a tooth drill, making the operation very comfortable for most patients. It eliminates the need for suturing in soft tissue (surgical) treatments, and healing is substantially faster.
Cavities can be detected using lasers. They can detect early stages of decay in teeth, and in certain situations, the damage can be reversed with proper hygiene and fluoride treatment, avoiding the need for fillings.
Laser technology is beneficial in the following areas of dental care:
- Cavity detection and treatment
- Dental Bonding materials are hardened by curing
- Periodontal (gum) care is a term that refers to the treatment of gum disease
- Procedures for children
- Treatment for Apthous Ulcer (canker sore)
- Without anaesthetic or sutures, a frenectomy (tongue-tie release) is performed
- Apicoectomies and root canals
- Gingivectomy, crown lengthening, and other gum repairs
Both children and adults have been treated using dental lasers, which have been demonstrated to be safe and effective.
Camera inserted inside the mouth
Many patients, particularly younger ones, are well-versed in cutting-edge technology and are at ease in a high-tech environment. Computers and television displays are their principal sources of information.
Dr. Banga uses Intraoral Camera technology to assist you comprehend your diagnosis better. An intraoral camera is an extremely small camera, measuring only a few millimeters in length in some situations. An intraoral camera helps us to see crisp, exact images of your mouth, teeth, and gums so that we can make an accurate diagnosis. You can see details that are missed by normal mirror inspections since the images are clear, distinct, and enlarged. This might mean a quicker diagnosis and fewer time in the chair for you!
Intraoral cameras also allow us to keep your photos on our office computer as a permanent record of your treatments. These photos can be produced for you, other specialists, your lab, and your insurance company.
