Napa Dentist Dr. Burke can create better Invisalign treatment plans for her patients using iTero intraoral scans. Align Technology research shows orthodontists who use the scans have 10 times fewer rejections and seven times fewer issues with the fit of the Invisalign aligners. These results may be because iTero intraoral scanners can help Dr. Burke track your progress.
CEREC technology allows us to create strong, customized, tooth-colored ceramic restorations right here in the office, usually within a single appointment. No temporary, no second and best of all a beautiful all porcelain restoration with no black margin at the gum line. A single visit is required and the aesthetics are beautiful. In the course of one visit, we can prepare your damaged tooth, create an optical impression of the tooth, and use CEREC to design and mill a precision restoration, which is then permanently bonded to your tooth. No mess, no discomfort, no wait. Get the smile you want and get back to your life. We know you’ve got more important things to do.
We strive to keep abreast of the newest innovations in dental technology in order to provide you with the safest and most effective treatment options. With this in mind, we are pleased to offer the Galileos 3D cone beam scanner from Sirona.
The Galileos scanner generates a 3D image after only 14 seconds, providing an exceptionally high image resolution in a short period of time. This means less waiting time for a diagnosis and quickly generated treatment plans. Utilizing the Galileos scanner, we are able to quickly assess your dental needs and have you back out enjoying your life in less time than you might expect from traditional imaging equipment.
At Napa Valley Dental Care, our patients’ health always comes first. This is why we now offer digital X-rays, a remarkable innovation in dental safety that allows dentists to reduce the amount of radiation patients are exposed to with standard X-rays by up to 90 percent. To take digital X-rays, we will place a very small camera into the mouth. As soon as the picture is taken, an image pops up on a nearby computer screen. This amazing technology allows you to view any potential problems yourself and discuss them with the dentist.
The intraoral camera is a real time-saver for both dentist and patient. And because they detect problems early on, the images taken by an intraoral camera can also save patients a significant amount of money in the long run. Please contact Napa Valley Dental Care today for more information on this wonderful instrument.
