Advanced Dentistry Q & A

What is advanced dentistry?

Advanced dentistry is the use of modern tools and technology to give you the best dental experience possible. This technology includes:

  • Intraoral cameras
  • Laser cavity detection
  • Digital radiography
  • VELscope™ oral cancer screening
  • Soft tissue lasers

By using state-of-the-art dental systems, the team of experts at Greene Street Dental can perform more accurate diagnoses to give you better results with less invasive procedures. 

What is an intraoral camera?

An intraoral camera is a tiny camera that takes highly magnified digital photos of the inside of your mouth. These photos are invaluable for diagnosing dental conditions and monitoring ongoing problems. 

Because they’re digital, they can be displayed on a high-resolution screen right in the Greene Street Dental offices, enabling you to see exactly what your dentist sees when they’re evaluating your smile.

What is laser cavity detection?

Laser cavity detection is the use of laser tools to look for cavities or decay in your teeth. In some cases of tooth decay, microscopic cracks in the hard surfaces of your teeth open the door for bacteria to make its way within your tooth and start the decay process. 

Because these surface-level cracks are difficult to visually assess, this can lead to inner tooth decay that goes undiagnosed for quite some time. 

The team at Greene Street Dental uses a DIAGNOdent™ laser in their cavity detection. This laser lets them look past the hard surfaces of your teeth and find decay that originates inside your tooth, identifying decay that X-rays and regular dental assessments typically miss.

What is digital radiography?

Digital radiography produces far less radiation than traditional X-rays. It allows the team at Greene Street Dental to enlarge and display your X-rays on a digital screen so that you can easily see and understand any oral conditions your dentist treats.

What is the VELscope?

The VELscope is a revolutionary tool that improves the team’s ability to detect signs of oral cancer. It’s a noninvasive machine that uses a bright blue light to highlight any changes in your mouth that might not be visible to your provider’s naked eye. 

What is a soft tissue laser?

Soft tissue lasers are a technologically advanced tool that the Greene Street Dental team uses to treat gum-related conditions, like gum disease. 

Laser tools are more precise than the tools traditionally used in gum surgery. They also cauterize and sterilize as they work, which reduces or eliminates any bleeding you might otherwise experience. It also significantly reduces your healing time and postoperative discomfort.
