What is Advanced Dental and Oral Surgery Technology?

Advanced technology used in dentistry and oral surgery is also referred to as digital dentistry. Simply put, advanced technology is an umbrella term for all devices, tools, software, and techniques that rely in part on digital technology. Examples include software that aids in the precise placement of dental implants, digital imaging devices including 3D Cone Beam and X-ray, and soft tissue lasers.

Types of Technology We Use in Oral Surgeries

3D Cone Beam Scanner
Using cone beam technology, the scanner provides a 360-degree, 3D image of the teeth and surrounding structures in the mouth. 3D Cone beam scanning reduces radiation exposure significantly compared to older CT scans.

Trios Intraoral Scanner
Intraoral scanners replace older putty impressions while allowing oral surgeons to view each tooth in real time on a screen. These intraoral oral scanners create fast, painless impressions.

ObiScanner Facial Scanner
The ObiScanner provides a 3D, high-resolution digital model of the entire face in just seconds.

Soft Tissue Lasers
Oral and Facial Surgery Associates is equipped with state-of-the-art soft tissue lasers including Ellman Radiosurgery and the Surgitron Electrosurgical Generator. Soft tissue lasers offer enhanced comfort, less bleeding, decreased risk of infections, and expedited recoveries.

Frequently Asked Questions About Technology in Oral Surgery

Does advanced technology cost more?
No. Advanced technology has instead helped reduce costs in oral surgeries.
Are digital scans safe?
Yes, all digital technology reduces radiation exposure compared to older imaging methods such as film X-rays and CT scans.
Do intraoral scans hurt?
Not at all. A small wand equipped with a camera is swabbed throughout the mouth, eliminating the need for bulky trays filled with putty that patients often find uncomfortable.
Are lasers safe for oral surgeries?
Yes. Lasers offer several benefits over older cutting methods, including less damage to surrounding tissues, less risk of infection, reduced bleeding, and faster, more comfortable recoveries.
What are the benefits of radiosurgery?
Radiosurgery eliminates the need for cutting instruments such as a scalpel. Radiosurgery reduces the risk of bleeding, infections, and post-surgical complications.
What are the benefits of electrosurgery?
Electrosurgery offers benefits such as enhanced comfort, expedited treatment times, reduced risk of complications, and swifter recoveries.
Does 3D cone beam imaging hurt?
Not at all. The machine does all of the work, making the process fast and comfortable.
Is radiosurgery better than traditional surgical methods?
Both traditional and radiosurgery are effective, but radiosurgery reduces risks, and in many cases, yields a faster, more comfortable recovery from oral surgery
