A very important factor that needs to be considered when choosing a dentist is the technology that each practice uses. We live in a world where technology is continuously advancing and a practice that keeps up with these technological advancements is one that can be trusted. Badalamenti’s practice knows this and takes pride in the fact that they invest in the top equipment and continue their education to keep up with every technological advancement and the latest techniques. Some of these include:
- By use of CEREC Machines and Equipment she can provide patients with inlays, onlays, crowns and veneers in only one appointment. The CAD/CAM system allows same-day dental restorations, improved orthodontic treatment and planning, and integrated implantology. The technology has been confirmed to be clinically safe and proven on more than 30 million CEREC tooth restorations worldwide.
- Dr Maria was one of the first dentists in the area to you a Dental Cone Beam for dental implants. By using computed tomography (CT), a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient, she can produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. This ensures that all implants are custom made and fit properly.
- We also use digital radiography, a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. These can cut down the time of office visits through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. These also limit the exposure to radiation that a traditional X-ray might cause.
