As the latest and most advanced generation of intraoral scanners, the iTero® Element 5D Intraoral Scanner elevates every step in care. In addition to comfortably obtaining detailed intraoral views and precise diagnostic data, it offers the most advanced integrated analytics and design software, supporting predictable results and outstanding treatment outcomes.
More efficient, reliable & comfortable care
At Bethesda Row Dental, our goal is to make every dental visit a positive and stress-free experience. We provide skilled, compassionate care, using the most advanced technology and treatment methods to help every patient experience the benefits of a healthy and beautiful smile.
Dental imaging offers a powerful way for dentists to properly diagnose and treat a variety of tooth and gum conditions. Since safety is a priority, our office chooses to use the latest technology to protect our patients. We offer digital dental x-rays as an alternative to the traditional methods that were previously used to view details about dental health.
Here are some of the greatest benefits of digital radiography:
Enhanced Images: These x-rays are captured using digital sensors instead of the traditional x-ray film. These sensors produce quality images that are saved onto the computer. High resolution and accuracy means that more information is available for the dentist to use
Reduced Radiation: Researchers have found that the radiation levels are reduced by up to 70% compared to traditional x-ray equipment. Lowering the radiation helps to decrease the potential side effects and long-term risk of x-ray exposure.
Improved Diagnostics: Having access to clear pictures and more information increases the accuracy of diagnostics. Patients can rest assured knowing that the diagnosis and treatment plan is customized based on the exact specifications in their mouth. Digital x-rays can reveal inconspicuous issues such as hidden areas of decay, infections in the bone, gum disease, tumors, and other abnormalities that are out of sight during a visual examination.
Save Time and Money: Early detection methods using digital x-rays help to minimize the treatments that are required. As a result, patients can save both time and money by avoiding more invasive treatments.
Environmentally Friendly: Since film processing chemicals are not required, digital x-rays offer a way to eliminate the pollution. Digital images can be captured without leftover chemicals that are hazardous waste.
By far the biggest advancement in dentistry is the development of 3D printers. Recently, the FDA has approved resins for final restorations, dentures, nightguards, and other dental products. Specifically, the SprintRay Pro 95 Desktop 3D Printer, which we have here at Bethesda Row Dental, has been the leader in the advancement of this technology. Firstly, it provides exceptional accuracy and precision in the creation of dental prostheses, including nightguards, crowns, bridges, and dentures. Secondly, it allows us to keep the production of these protheses in house which results in faster delivery time. For instance, a night guard used to take two weeks from initial scan or impression in the office until the lab would receive, create, and send it back to us. Now, we are able to get your device within 24-48 hours!
With its advanced technology, this printer produces high-quality 3D models that allow for a more efficient and streamlined workflow, reducing the time required for traditional manufacturing methods. This not only saves valuable time but also allows for a more cost-effective process that ultimately benefits the patient.
The SprintRay Pro Desktop 3D Printer also enables us to create custom-made prostheses tailored to the specific needs of individual patients. This is particularly important for patients who require complex or challenging dental restorations that cannot be achieved through traditional methods in less than 24 hours post-surgery.
Furthermore, the printer’s ability to print in biocompatible materials such as ceramics, resins, and metals, ensures that the final products are safe and reliable, with minimal risk of adverse reactions or complications.
Overall, the SprintRay Pro Desktop 3D Printer provides our office with cutting-edge technology that enhances patient care and satisfaction, increases efficiency and accuracy, and ultimately improves the quality of dental prostheses.
The 3Shape TRIOS Scanner optimizes every aspect of care. From obtaining the most accurate and comfortable 3D digital impressions to the generation of dental models for the custom fabrication of orthodontic aligners, appliances for the treatment of sleep apnea, and dental prostheses such as crowns, the 3Shape TRIOS Intraoral Scanner provides a more pleasant patient experience while producing more predictable results and better outcomes of care.
Scan internal tooth structure
The 3Shape TRIOS is the first intraoral scanner with NIRI or near-infrared imaging technology. This massively aids the diagnostic process, increasing detection and monitoring of cavities and gingava in real time. Using the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, you can even see how your treatment will look before even getting started.
A slender scanning wand captures detailed intraoral views
The 3Shape TRIOS Intraoral Scanner enables dentists to obtain detailed 3D digital impressions of a patient’s teeth and occlusion to deliver the most precise, efficient, and comfortable care. A guided scanning process using an ergonomically designed wand captures and integrates multiple intraoral images from every angle to generate highly accurate 3D impressions. The 3Shape TRIOS Intraoral Scanner provides a far more pleasant office experience for the patient than the conventional methods of taking dental impressions. Compatible with multiple digital systems, the 3Shape TRIOS Intraoral Scanner allows for the seamless and efficient generation of dental models for the custom fabrication of dental prostheses such as crowns as well as orthodontic aligners. With the 3Shape TRIOS Intraoral Scanner, the practitioner consistently obtains the most precise information for more predictable results and better outcomes of care.
To make the process of getting dental care more comfortable, our practice has transitioned to the Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia system. Instead of numbing the entire area around your damaged tooth with large, intimidating syringes, the Wand discreetly numbs the individual tooth dentists need to work on. The Wand STA System is also unique because it delivers a computer-controlled flow of anesthesia rather than one large, stinging injection, creating a more comfortable numbing experience.
As your dentist works on your teeth, they can control the flow of anesthesia to keep you as comfortable as possible. The Wand delivers the medicine at precisely the right rate for the tissue density of the area, offering patients the pain relief they need immediately. Because the Wand looks so benign, it is perfect for patients who are nervous about shots and needles, such as children who haven’t had much practice with injections or adults and teens with dental phobias or anxiety.
The VELscope® is an advanced oral assessment technology system that offers clinicians the ability to visualize oral tissue abnormalities that may indicate the presence of oral cancer or pre-malignant dysplasia. A VELscope evaluation is quick, painless, and can be easily incorporated into an oral cancer screening visit.
The VELscope is a handheld scope that utilizes an imaging modality that is sensitive to changes in the natural tissue fluorescence of the oral mucosa. The bright blue light of the VELscope can distinguish healthy soft tissue inside the mouth from soft tissue that has undergone pathological changes.
This ability to identify, evaluate and monitor abnormal soft tissue changes that might not be caught otherwise makes the VELscope an excellent addition to a periodic head and neck exam.
Soft-tissue diode dental lasers have revolutionized chairside treatment, allowing dentists to deliver procedures with greater accuracy and dramatically improved healing times. Whether you’re performing a gingivectomy, treating a cold sore, uncovering a cuspid or troughing a molar for impressions, dental lasers achieve consistently superior results and help you provide the highest standard of care for patients.
