At Grinview Smiles, we believe that our patients deserve only the best. This includes the best dentistry with the most compassionate care and the most advanced technology. We’ve invested in the most cutting edge technology for the most advanced treatments available. For our wonderful patients, better technology means:
Our patients love that we offer digital x-rays. Digital x-rays use less radiation and are therefore much safer than traditional x-rays. They are also much more convenient as they can be taken and viewed right from the dental chair in a matter of seconds – so you can see what we see.
In the past, the only way we could really get an up close and personal look at the inside of your mouth was through the magic of sight with the help of a tiny dental mirror. Thankfully, with advances in modern technology, we now have intraoral cameras that take high resolution images of the inside of your mouth to help us gain better insight into the state of your oral health.
Lasers have truly revolutionized the dental and healthcare industries. With our soft tissue diode laser, we can eliminate the need for cutting and sutures. This ensures procedures that are much less invasive, require far less recovery time, and results that are more predictable.
Planmeca Emerald™ milling machines use CAD/CAM (computer-aided drafting and manufacturing) technology to produce accurate scans and images of teeth and adjoining surfaces inside the mouth. The scan becomes the blueprint for a precise 3-D digital model of the crown, which the milling machine then produces while you wait. Gone are the days of messy impressions, multiple injections and inconvenient repeat visits. Milling machines design, fabricate and produce not only same-day crowns, but bridges and veneers.
Dental cone beam scans are special x-rays that produce detailed, three-dimensional (3-D) color images of the overall dental structure – teeth, soft tissue, nerve paths, and bone. This exciting technology allows precision implant placement by Dr. Grier – and our patients can really see how dental implants will fit securely into the jaw before their procedure, which can alleviate stress and fear of the unknown.
If you’re ready to experience the difference that cutting edge technology can make for your dental experience and your oral health, you’ve come to the right place! If you have any questions about our technology or would like to schedule a consultation with your Grandview dentist – Dr. Michael Grier at Grinview Smiles – give us a call today at (817) 653-8881.
