Innovative Dental Technology
Computer Tomography 3D Cone Beam by Prexion
We now have computer tomography 3D cone beam technology at Oak Park Dental Associates. Never heard of it? Let us show you what it can do! We are one of only a very limited dental offices that offer this amazing technology. It would change your view of how we look at your mouth!
Prexion 3D computer tomography (CT) cone beam renders virtual 3D models of your jaw that cannot be seen with any other traditional radiographic (x-ray) technology. Imagine looking at your teeth, sinus and jaw in 3D on the computer screen. Now imagine seeing right through it! You can see everything from the surface and anything in between!
CO2Laser by DEKA
DEKA CO2 laser is a powerful laser that allows surgical treatment of soft tissue with no inflammation or pain! It allows us to treat and remove unwanted inflamed and infected tissue with healing times far less than any traditional incisions made by a scalpel. This leads to shorter healing time and less discomfort overall.
Cavity Laser Detector by Diagnodent
Diagnodent allows us to detect tooth decay that x-rays cannot see. We can now locate hidden decay in it’s earliest stage, and with treatment, stop the spread of the disease before it destroys the tooth from within.
Digital Radiography by Schick
Digital x-rays has been in our practice for over 15 years! It is a technology that minimizes exposure to unnecessary radiation and has the convenience of instant developing with viewing on a (large) computer screen.
Magnifying loupes in dentistry is an invaluable tool that allows your dentist to see what our naked eye cannot see. The typical magnification is 2.5x, 3.5x, 5.5x or 6x. The higher the magnification, the more you can see. Dr. Lim uses only 6x magnification loupes to treat each and every patient.
To supplement the loupes, a tethered lighting that is rated at 9500 footcandle’s strength is used to enhance the field of view. Greater than 2x stronger than the traditional overhead light used in traditional dental offices. Essentially, nothing can be missed when this is used in conjunction with Prexion 3D CT cone beam technology!
