Advanced Technology

Digital X-Rays

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.

Itero Intraoral Scanner

Dentist Millbrae - Itero Intraoral Scanner

Invisalign® employs a modern technique developed to straighten teeth without the hassle of traditional metal wires. Invisalign® is a clear, removable device (tray) that you wear over your top and/or bottom teeth for about 20 hours a day. The trays ultimately make it more convenient for you to eat, brush and floss – because they are easily removable.

They are also more comfortable and easy to wear. Invisalign® is nearly invisible and can help you regain your confidence as your teeth are straightened without the look of traditional metal braces.

The process of getting Invisalign® is easy, convenient, and done in comfort. It begins with a consultation with our dentist. Once they determine Invisalign® is right for you, a model of your teeth will be created using our iTero 3D scanner.

As you lay back comfortably, a complete model of your mouth will be created using our iTero scanner. The model is then saved to our computer to create an easy, step-by-step process toward achieving the smile you want. You’ll even be able to see a preview of what your teeth can look like upon completion of treatment!

A new set of aligners is created every two weeks. Each set of Invisalign® trays is a step in the process of making your teeth straighter than the previous set. The amount of time and number of aligners will depend on each individual case.

Invisalign® is a great choice because it eliminates most problems that traditional braces can cause. It reduces pain and mouth sores that patients might endure from the metal brackets and wires. It can also decrease the likelihood of tooth decay and plaque buildup from inadequate brushing and flossing.

If you think Invisalign® might be right for you, or you have questions about how we use our Itero scanner to create beautiful smiles, please contact our office and schedule a consultation today.
