In our quest to provide patients with the ultimate in Dental Care, we’re pleased to announce the use of the following Advanced Technology for more comfortable experience to patients of all walks of life who visit us.
1. Intraoral Cameras.
Perry Danos, DDS, Penelope Danos, DMD or Antonio Ganios, DMD utilizes Intraoral Camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An Intraoral Camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An Intraoral Camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intraoral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
2. Digital Imaging….Panoramic, Cephalometric and TMJ Digital X-Rays.
Dr. Danos, Dr. Danos or Dr. Ganios chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Drs. Danos, Danos or Ganios utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better. Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
3. Digital Single X-Rays.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.
- We use Commercial Grade-UV-Light and Germicidal-Ionization (Active Pure Technology Connected to our HVAC system). This system purifies the air inside the office.
- We use Extraoral Dental Suction Systems for air purification-Captures Mercury vapors, bacteria and viruses during dental procedures.
- We use Advanced Hospital-Grade Sanitizing System (Surgically Clean Air).For air purification.
- We use Amalgam Separator-Prevents silver particles containing Mercury entering the water system
5. State-of-the-Art Sterilization System
- Most current Steam Autoclave and Sterilization procedures with weekly biologic monitoring for accuracy
6. Air Abrasion in Morton Grove.
- A drill-less technique that is being used to remove early, small areas of tooth decay
- Non-invasive tooth preparation
- Works like a mini sandblaster to spray away decay
- Air abrasion generates no heat, pressure, or vibration.
- Air abrasion sometimes reduces the need for anesthesia, particularly if the cavity is shallow.
- Air abrasion leaves more of the healthy tooth tissue behind.
- Air abrasion reduces the risk of fracturing and chipping of the tooth, which some dentists believe can affect the life span of the filling.
- The procedure is relatively simple, although it may take longer than traditional drilling.
7. Precision Dentistry.
Many dentists use air-driven “hand-pieces” (the dental term for “drills”). While acceptable for many procedures, these “whiney sounding” air-powered hand pieces all have a degree of non-concentricity; they do not rotate perfectly smoothly.
For the most precise aspects of restorative procedures, we use electric hand-pieces. This results in extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration (dental crown, tooth veneer, or tooth filling). This will bring more comfort to you as well. With a more precise tool, there is less vibration and less noise.
Gingival Surgery without bleeding and minimal discomfort.
9. Secure Storage of Electronic Medical/Dental Records.
Your privacy is of great importance to us and all Electronic Records (your confidential dental records and radiographs) are stored on a secure, remote server in the cloud.
