At Stamford Dental Group, we feel that an investment in technology is an investment in our patients. We’ve made it a priority to stay current on the most recent dental advancements, integrating the right tools into our practice. This enables us to provide a more comfortable patient experience and more reliable, precise, and effective outcomes.
We understand the inconvenience patients face with a traditional crown, and because your time is as valuable as your smile, we now use a revolutionary tool that mills a permanent crown in 15 minutes called CEREC. After taking a 3D image of your tooth, our CEREC machine can mill a strong, beautiful restoration in about an hour. We’ll permanently place the crown during your single visit, and you’ll leave our office with a full, healthy smile.
Cone Beam CT Technology
As an advanced type of digital radiography, cone beam technology provides the dentist with a three-dimensional, digital image of structures beneath the surface of the teeth and gums. This unprecedented view includes teeth roots, internal canals, and bone structure. CBCT (Cone-Beam Computed Tomography) scans are similar in detail to traditional medical CTs, but taken in a fraction of the time. This extremely precise image is also done with a fraction of radiation of a medical CT.
CBCT scans can be used to plan root canal or orthodontic treatment, place implants more precisely, pinpoint TMJ disorders, and much more. Since you’ll have access to the cone beam technology in our office, you won’t need a referral to a radiology lab. Your scans, diagnosis, and treatment will be conveniently done at our office. When we see the detailed 3D renderings of your teeth and jaw, treatment can be more targeted and, thus, more effective.
