Today’s dental technology can improve many aspects of life. At Park Avenue Dentistry we are consistently updating to the most advanced technology to benefit the patient. As part of our commitment to exceptional dental care, we incorporate the latest dental technology into everything we do. Dr. Lester and his staff take pride in what we do and by using the most modern of dental equipment the world of dental technology has to offer, we are confident in providing our patients with state-of-the-art dentistry. We would not treat our family or friends any other way.
Our latest CAD/CAM restorative system makes porcelain restorations in one office visit. This system uses a high-tech laser to quickly and accurately scan your teeth to help us design a crown, bridge, or veneer that fits you precisely. This eliminates any messy impressions or molds in your mouth. It also negates the need for a temporary as you go home with your restoration the same day. This technology is capable of making crowns, bridges, veneers and inlays/onlays. Rest assured that these porcelain restorations use some of the industries strongest porcelains materials to create your custom restoration.
Digital radiographs, or x-rays, are a progressive technology that employs up to 90% less radiation exposure than the previously used dental film. Generated on a computer, digital radiographs provide enhanced images for better diagnosis and that can lead to earlier detection and treatment. In each treatment room you will find a flat screen TV which shows you your radiographic images. With this technology you can see and better understand a diagnosis as Dr. Lester wants you to feel comfortable with all neccessary treatment and decisions about your mouth.
Take a video tour of your mouth with our intraoral camera. With this technology you get a bird’s-eye view of your dental issues. With this tiny camera you can see before and after images of your dental treatment, fractures in teeth, dental decay, and even the smallest of dental concerns. Intraoral photography allows you to get involved and get excited about your results!
The Diagnodent is a powerful new diagnostic tool that uses the energy of a laser to find decay in its earliest stages. This instrument reveals cavities that are hidden in tooth crevices that could become significant dental complications if left untreated. Using the Diagnodent, Dr. Lester can diagnose details that can not be seen by the naked eye. Finding problems with your teeth early on leads to more effective and thorough treatment as well as less discomfort.
In pursuit of optimum health, Dr. Lester employs a specialized microscope to diagnose and treat dental concerns. Under magnification, small amounts of decay, tiny cracks and other flaws can be detected and eliminated with ease. Working with this advanced technology, Dr. Lester is able to provide precise treatment, which translates to longer lasting dental restorations and possibly less dental treatment in the future. Our patients appreciate that!
