Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:
Our advanced digital x-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.
With digital x-rays, we can view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your dental treatment.
Digital x-rays require much less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.
Cone Beam Imaging
Cone Beam imaging is an advanced form of digital radiograph. With the cone beam imager, one simple scan will produce a 3D image of your entire maxillofacial structure. This image can then be used in diagnostics, patient education, treatment planning, and treatment follow-up.
The cone beam provides an effective solution to create quick, clear, precise images for your benefit. Additionally, the cone beam uses minimal radiation in scanning and is a much less-invasive process than other forms of imaging. This makes the cone beam an excellent choice for patients with dental anxiety or a sensitive gag reflex.
By utilizing advanced technologies like the cone beam, we can provide an effective, efficient, and comfortable patient experience for you on every visit.
The intra-oral camera is about the size and shape of a pen. It is used to record images of your teeth, gums, mouth, and tongue from inside your mouth. Due to its small size and sleek design, it is comfortable, easy to use, and able to view a wide range of angles. The intra-oral camera is a safe and effective tool that can be used with patients of every age.
The intra-oral camera is a highly valuable resource for both diagnosis and treatment planning. Each time we use the intra-oral camera, a new disposable cover is employed. This ensures your health and safety at all times. After your exam, images captured by the intra-oral camera may be digitally stored, printed out, or deleted.
Soft Tissue Lasers
With soft tissue lasers at our disposal, Dr. Gary Shmurak and Dr. Maya Shmurak-Spiewak can provide precise high-quality treatments that are relatively pain-free, less invasive, and useful for a wide variety of dental treatments.
A laser is essentially a tiny beam of highly concentrated light. This beam can be used to provide pinpoint accuracy in treatments. Because the laser sterilizes the tissues and seals off blood vessels as it is used, the chance of infection or bleeding following laser treatment is minimal. The soft tissue laser is minimally-invasive, but highly effective.
With the highly versatile soft tissue laser, Dr. Gary Shmurak and Dr. Maya Shmurak-Spiewak can seal nerve endings and blood vessels and treat soft tissues simultaneously. This creates less stress on the gums, which significantly reduces both swelling and bleeding. Moreover, by using the soft tissue laser, Dr. Gary Shmurak and Dr. Maya Shmurak-Spiewak minimize patients’ discomfort both during and after the treatment and lessens their recovery time.
Dr. Gary Shmurak and Dr. Maya Shmurak-Spiewak use soft tissue laser technology to provide our patients with precise dental care with a comfortable dental experience.
The Cavitron is a handheld device used in periodontal deep cleaning. While scaling can be completed by hand, the Cavitron uses ultrasonic technology to remove calculus from teeth and gums quickly, gently and effectively.
With the Cavitron, patients enjoy a more comfortable experience and time spent scaling and polishing is decreased.
What is the secret to making a great impression? At Apex Dental Care L.L.C., we use our intra-oral digital scanner to ensure that the impressions we take are accurate, efficient, and comfortable every time.
Impressions are necessary for the fabrication of dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Our hand-held intra-oral scanner takes 3-dimensional digital video impressions with proven accuracy. Even the most challenging cases can be accurately scanned with our intra-oral scanner.
Another benefit to you is reduced time. When we send precise digital scans to our lab, your restorations require less preparation work and can be fabricated more quickly. This means you can have your restoration placed and be enjoying the results sooner than with traditional impression methods.
In the past, you may have experienced dental trays that filled with a soft substance that hardened into an impression of your mouth and teeth. With the intra-oral scanner’s small hand-held wand, we can take accurate digital impressions quickly and easily, without tripping your gag reflex.
Even more, as we complete your scan, you will be able to view the impression on the monitor along with us. This allows you to see more precisely why we have recommended restoration for your oral health needs
We look forward to seeing you again at your next appointment with us. We love to make a great impression.
About 1 in 5 Americans avoids going to the dentist due to dental anxiety or fear. For many of these patients, the biggest reason for their fear is pain from injections. With the DentalVibe, needle fears can become a thing of the past.
The DentalVibe Injection Comfort System is a small hand-held tool used to administer anesthesia. Unlike a standard needle injection, however, the DentalVibe applies light vibration to the area around the injection site as the anesthesia is being administered. Due to the way the brain interprets sensory information, the vibration sensation arrives first and blocks the sense of pain or injection discomfort.
DentalVibe is safe to use with patients of all ages and all states of health. Among patients who have experienced the DentalVibe, 95% have reported that their entire view of dentistry has changed. Many have gone on to say that they believe they might never have experienced dental fear at all had this revolutionary new tool been available during their childhood.
If you’ve delayed your oral care due to issues with dental anxiety or fear of pain from anesthesia needles, DentalVibe is here for you. Contact our office for an appointment to get your health back on track.
