Microscope Enhanced Dentistry
K7 Neuromuscular Dentistry
The Mytronics K7 unit and Tens system are highly sensitive and accurate devices designed to evaluate the current state of your bite and determine its most comfortable and functional position. By gently stimulating muscle activity with a low frequency electrical pulse, the Tens releases painful toxin buildup so muscles can relax. At that point, the K7 is used to measure muscle activity (similar to an EKG) and the proper position for restoration of the bite. The K7 is also used after the dental work is completed in order to confirm the bite’s position.
Laser Decay Detection – Diagnadent
Reliable, Accurate Caries Detection Aid
More and more patients place value on healthy and attractive teeth. In order to maintain them, the earliest possible care is essential. DIAGNOdent aids in the detection of caries. Even very small lesions and incipient caries can be detected, enabling you to protect and preserve the tooth substance.
Clear Aligner Orthodontic tooth movement
“I want those invisible braces, the ones nobody can see.”
We’ve all heard this wish from a gap-toothed patient. No one wants to go through life with malaligned teeth, but few people want to be seen with metal train-track braces, either. One aligner manufacturer uses this evocative teaser on its website: “No one needs to know.”
The field of orthodontics made a quantum leap with a technique for removable clear aligners by Chishti and Wirth in 1997, and today it really is possible to straighten teeth with nearly invisible appliances.
Orthodontic tooth movement (OTM) with clear aligners involves the fabrication of a series of incrementally different aligners for top and bottom teeth that are similar in appearance to whitening trays or an athletic mouthguard. The first pair of aligners may be no different from the patients’ normal dentition, so they can get used to wearing them. Aligners are typically changed every two to four weeks, and each new set is slightly different from the last to gradually shift teeth into place. Treatment can take up to two years, depending on case difficulty and patient compliance. A patient may need fewer than five aligners, or more than 20.
