Planmeca Dental Imaging
Planmeca digital imaging is an external digital imaging system to allow for panoramic and bitewing images to be taken without having to place a sensor or film in the patient’s mouth. They range from 3D imaging to 2D panoramic imaging. Our dental professionals utilize a state-of-the-art Planmeca imaging unit to get the best possible image of what’s going on inside your mouth. Not only does it provide the best possible imaging results, but it is also designed with the patient’s comfort in mind, which is one of our main priorities here at Advanced Dentistry South Florida.
An autoclave is a device that uses steam to destroy bacteria and viruses. It incorporates not only steam, but heat and pressure as well. Our doctors and dental professionals use state-of-the-art autoclaves in our Delray Beach dental practice to help attain the highest safety and comfort of each patient.
Your dentist needs to get the best possible view of what’s going on inside your mouth. Because of this, we utilize the latest digital x-ray technology. The x-rays allow your doctor to see various viewpoints of the tooth and surrounding areas of the jaw in order to determine the best course of action going forward with treatment. Because these images are digital, the level of quality for each image is unparalleled. Traditional x-rays expose patients to a certain amount of radiation. With the use of our state-of-the-art digital x-ray technology, the radiation is reduced by over 90%!
Have you ever wondered why your dentist wears funny looking glasses sometimes when examining you? When you help patients daily to achieve their best oral care possible, it is important to have the enhanced ability to see clearly in order to assess and communicate clearly what issues may be present in the mouth. This gives your doctor an enhancement from 1.5x to 6x that of normal vision to help in identifying gum disease, cavities and many other dental concerns.
Laser dentistry refers to any dental procedure involving the use of a laser. Some lasers are used in oral surgery and some are used for cosmetic purposes and restorative cases. When patients experience laser dentistry procedures, bleeding is minimized and so is the need for local anesthesia. Swelling is controlled and discomfort is very minimal in most cases. These lasers are safe for the whole family and is FDA approved. The number one feature that patients often enjoy from the use of dental lasers is the fact that there is less pain and a reduced amount of time in the dental office.

The nomad brings us into the digital age with radiation shielding designed to protect the patient as well as the operator of the unit. Radiation is less than 1% of allowed occupational doses.
VistaPure Water System

VistaPure is bottle-ready, hyperfiltered water that ensures high quality h2o for mixing with bottle and residual cleaners, and for the rinse of instrument washers. Because there are no chemicals needed, Vista Pure is environmentally friendly, which is very important to us.
ZOOM! Whitening System
Zoom! is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It’s safe, effective and very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. The convenience of Zoom! in comparison to days of using strips or wearing trays makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. The Zoom! Whitening procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom! whitening gel that is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You’ll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure. Trays with gel are recommended afterward for maximum whitening and maintenance.

In order to properly and thoroughly perform an oral examination, your doctors at Advanced Dentistry South Florida utilize the Velscope, which is a hand-held device used to help visualize abnormalities in the tissue of the mouth that the naked eye might miss. Velscope is used in our office to help seek out and diagnose oral cancer and pre-cancer. Oral cancer screenings are very important and should be done yearly.
