Precision Dentistry

When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Ghetiya and his staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.

Our practice uses high power microscopes to enhance the precision of patient care.

Dentistry is micro-surgery. Using microscope that is similar to the one an ophthalmologist uses enables us to create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just can't fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.

In addition to allowing precise, close-up work, the microscope directs a beam of light directly on the teeth, minimizing glare for you.

Many dentists use air-driven "hand-pieces" (the dental term for "drills").  While acceptable for many procedures, these "whiney sounding" air-powered hand pieces all have a degree of non-concentricity; they do not rotate perfectly smoothly.

For the most precise aspects of restorative procedures, we use electric hand-pieces. This results in extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration (crownveneer, or filling). This will bring more comfort to you as well. With a more precise tool, there is less vibration and less noise.

The right technology makes a difference. We strive to employ the latest dental techniques and equipment, while maintaining a high level of continuing education. The advanced equipment and procedures we utilize in our office include:

Laser Cavity Detection - Diagnodent

Diagnodent Laser Cavity Detection

One of the keys to maintaining good oral health is identifying and treating cavities as early as possible. Since even the smallest amount of decay can threaten the integrity of the tooth, finding and filling cavities is essential to preventing future problems.

DIAGNOdent technology locates decay at its earliest stages. DIAGNOdent uses laser technology to detect decay by measuring laser fluorescence within the tooth structure. When the laser encounters altered tooth substances, including bacteria, the DIAGNOdent emits a fluorescent light and a reading is displayed indicating the presence and severity of the decay.

DIAGNOdent uses light energy so there is no X-ray exposure. It is painless, non-invasive, and prevents the need for “exploratory” excavation of suspected areas of decay. Not only does this technology allow us to prevent the spread of decay, but catching decay early means simpler and smaller fillings which preserves more of the natural tooth.   

Intraoral Camera

Our intraoral camera allows us to take instant digital images of the teeth and intraoral surfaces. Dr. Ghetiya can then display these high resolution images on a computer monitor in the operatory, allowing the patient to share in the dentist's view. Allowing patients to view their teeth is a tremendous asset for Dr. Ghetiya, as it allows him to coordinate with patients regarding treatment needs and intended treatment outcomes. We take pictures on every patient at every new patient appointment.

Computerized Charting

Digital charting is a efficient means of tracking a patient's dental history. It also provides high-quality visual aids for patients to view changes in their dental health.  Rather than relying on general charts and models, Dr. Ghetiya can explain the diagnosis and treatment options using specific information.
