State of the Art Technology

As a dentist, I’m always looking for new ways to improve the patient’s experience in my office. I recently purchased a new Oral Scanner, which can eliminate an unpleasant procedure in dentistry.

Anyone who has ever had an impression taken at the dental office, with a tray of messy impression material in their mouth for several minutes, knows that it can be an uncomfortable experience. However, there is a new technology available that completely eliminates the need for this step. It’s called the Lava™ Chairside Oral Scanner C.O.S. from 3M ESPE, and it works by taking a digital impression of a patient’s mouth—no impression material necessary.

With this device, I can capture 3D video images by waving a small wand over my patients’ teeth, which records their dental anatomy in precise detail and simultaneously displays it on a chairside monitor. This gives the patient a more comfortable and interactive experience. My patient and I can then review, rotate, enlarge and even use 3D glasses to view the impression on the touch screen monitor. The file is then sent to a dental lab, which uses it to create the patient’s final restoration. Additionally, this all comes at no extra cost to the patient.

I would be pleased to show you this exciting new technology up close in my office. The process of recording the impression is quite interesting to watch.

Gemini® 810 + 980 Diode Laser

The Gemini 810 + 980 diode laser is the first dual-wavelength soft tissue diode laser available in the United States. The unique dual-wavelength technology combines the optimal melanin absorption of an 810 nanometer wavelength laser with the optimal water absorption of a 980 nanometer wavelength laser.

The Gemini 810 + 980 diode laser is also the most powerful dual-wavelength soft tissue diode laser available. The laser features 20 watts of peak super-pulsed power, which means faster, smoother cutting with less tissue tagging.

No matter the procedure, the innovative Gemini laser makes it faster, smoother, and more efficient.​

The Gemini 810 + 980 diode laser is a dual-wavelength soft tissue diode laser that can be used intraorally for frenectomies, gingivectomies, and other soft tissue procedures.

The following is a list of FDA-cleared indications for use of diode soft tissue lasers:

  • Excisional and incisional biopsies
  • Frenectomy
  • Gingival troughing for crown impression
  • Gingivoplasty
  • Hemostasis and coagulation
  • Implant recovery
  • Abscess incision and drainage

3-D Technology

The most important treatment that 3-D technology comes hand in hand with is dental implants, we can deliver more accurate and streamlined implants surgery procedures.

Before going under a procedure, there are many factors to consider, such as where the new implant should be placed, bone condition, and patient medical history. The safety of the patient is the most top priority.

Why should we risk the possibility of the computer making a mistake? With the use of 3-D imaging, it will be highly unlikely for the dental implant procedure to be inaccurate. The machine will recognize where exactly to input the implant. The 3-D technology is almost fool-proof and it helps Dr. Carranza avoid extra steps with bone grafting and surgery length.

“3D imaging is such a valuable tool for our implant patients to help them feel absolutely confident in the work that they need to make their smile complete again,” said Dr. Carranza.”

Dr. Carranza offers CAD-CAM technology. Dental implants and the teeth they support can now be retro-engineered. This exciting and revolutionary technology is changing lives.

Dr. Carranza offers only the best to his patients as he believes that quality is a wiser choice in the long run. To accomplish this end he works with dental labs pioneers of this technology.

The patients go through a scientific diagnosis and treatment planning session. Photos, models, CT Scans and digital X rays are taken, the case is pre-fabricated using advanced software. The number of implants, their position and direction are pre-determined and the implants are placed through a specially designed custom template.

The teeth are placed on the implants and the patient walks out from no teeth to a beautiful smile.

Our office takes advantage of the modern technology in the medical world to make our patients satisfaction much better with the improved accuracy.
