Commitment to Innovation
Newtown Dentistry for Kids, Newtown Orthodontics and Newtown Dentistry for Adults
is proud of our commitment to using the latest technology for your benefit.
This high-resolution, 3-dimensional imaging system makes diagnosis and treatment planning more accurate than any other system. It allows us to determine the position of supernumerary teeth & developing tooth buds, impacted teeth, and aids in the visualization of cysts or tumors in the mouth. It offers superior image results while still maintaining the lowest radiation dosage!
Dental lasers are safe, fast, comfortable and effective. They are useful in removing decay, aiding in soft tissue surgeries and they may even eliminate the need for anesthesia. Lasers also promote faster healing, with little or no post-surgical discomfort.
Digital Dental X-Rays
Our office is all digital, which means not only that our x-rays are faster, but they also reduce radiation by up to 90 percent. Computerized applications allow us to analyze decay on a whole new level with exceptional precision.
SoproLiFE Intraoral Camera with Caries Detection
This unique camera allows patients and practitioners to see all areas of the mouth with extreme detail and clarity in real time. The SoproLIFE camera has three settings one of which uses LED to emit a harmless blue light which then reflects an auto-fluorescent signal that indicates the presence of dental caries. It can also be used during treatment to minimize the amount of healthy tooth structure that is taken away when removing decay. This technology allows us to practice minimally invasive dentistry, and is a great tool in helping patients and parents understand treatment recommendations.
The CariScreen Caries Susceptibility Test
A simple 1-minute chair-side test for assessing patients’ caries risk. The test is quick and painless. We simply take a swab sample of the plaque from the teeth, which is then combined with special bioluminescence reagents within the swab. This will then create a reaction which is then measured with the CariScreen meter. The meter will give a score between 0 and 9,999. A score under 1,500 is considering relatively healthy, while above that shows considerable risk for decay. This technology not only allows us to measure our patients’ risk for decay at their visit, but also helps measure their progress as they follow the recommended protocols for reducing risk.
