Committed to State-of-the-Art & Comfortable Dental Experiences
Fast & Precise
Guided Implant Surgery
Highly Detailed, Low Radiation
- Digital Impressions: No Messy Dental Impression Materials!
Trios® Digital Impression System
Before placing a restoration into a patient’s mouth, the first step is to take an impression of their teeth and bite, which allows Dr. Shah to design someone’s treatment so that it looks and functions perfectly. Rather than relying on physical models to do this, he can quickly scan a patient’s mouth with a small device to create a digital impression in just a few minutes. Compared to the old way, this approach is extremely fast, accurate, comfortable, and time-wasting retakes are never necessary.
When evaluating a patient to determine whether or not they are a good candidate for dental implants, we don’t just take a regular X-ray. Instead, we use our CBCT scanner, which captures several images from various angles, and these are pieced together to create a highly detailed 3D model of the teeth, jawbones, and nearby structures. This gives Dr. Shah much more information and helps him better personalize the procedure based on someone’s unique needs.
Biolase® Dental Laser Dentistry
Dental lasers sound like science fiction, but they are an everyday reality here at Edison Prosthodontics. With this instrument, Dr. Shah can use concentrated light energy to remove infected gum tissue painlessly, and even perform various surgical procedures without using incisions or sutures. It helps make a wide range of procedures less invasive, more comfortable, and more precise, leading to a higher-quality result that also takes less time compared to more traditional methods!
ACTEON CUBE, PIEZOTOME
Dr. Shah has invested in the PIEZOTOME TECHNOLOGY with the goal of making extractions of teeth as comfortable and efficient as possible.
This additional piece of advanced technology now available at Edison Prosthodontics is designed to minimizes trauma to the surrounding bone and gums. Which in turn may allow him to place an implant immediately. Even if an implant can’t be placed immediately, conservation of bone allows for better long term outcome of implant treatment.
It thereby facilitates a faster recovery, lessens swelling, and reduces the need for post-op prescription painkillers. It can even eliminate the need for forceps and excessive force during extractions, which helps to keep the surrounding bone as whole and healthy as possible.
Rather than just shining a bright light into your mouth to examine it, Dr. Shah and our team will utilize small, handheld intraoral cameras to capture detailed images of your entire oral cavity. This allows us to see corners of your mouth that are normally hidden from the naked eye, ensuring we can catch any problems as soon as they appear. We can even display your images on a nearby monitor and go over them with you so you completely understand your oral health and treatment options.
The days of slow, film-based X-rays are over. Here, digital X-rays allow us to clearly see the areas of your teeth hidden below your gums and underlying bone while exposing you to 90% LESS radiation. Digital X-rays show much more detail, take seconds to develop, and don’t require us to dedicate extensive floorspace to storage. So not only do they help make your care more accurate, but they also ensure our prosthodontist's office has plenty of room for everyone to stretch out.
Edison Prosthodontics is now equipped with a Sprintray 3D printer. Now we can 3D print night-guards, temporary restorations, dentures, surgical guides, and more. Instead of waiting for 2-3 weeks of standard turnaround time for labs, we can print these products within a few hours. With digital planning it’s very easy to do modifications of design on computer and print another set of wax up, temporary crowns or dentures which eliminates extended waiting time from lab.
Plus, if something breaks, we can print another one quickly!
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Many patients experience anxiety when it comes to dental care, and rather than just telling someone to “calm down,” we’re able to offer a more tangible solution in the form of nitrous oxide sedation. A few breaths of this colorless, odorless gas are all it takes for unwanted nerves to go away and stay gone throughout an entire procedure. Afterward, the effects wear off quickly and completely, allowing someone to resume their normal day with no lasting effects.
Guided Dental Implant Surgery
When it comes to replacing people’s teeth with state-of-the-art dental implants, Dr. Shah takes all the guesswork out of the process. Guided dental implant surgery uses digital scans and a CT scan of the jaw to help him find the perfect locations for a patient's new teeth, and then place the implants with pinpoint accuracy. For this, Dr. Shah uses only cutting edge technology like the Densah® system. Thanks to this technology, the success of your procedure is practically guaranteed from the moment you step into our dental office!
Zirconia Dental Implants
Zirconia implants are new emerging technology which is rapidly becoming popular. Zirconia implants are metal free white implants. They are more friendly to the gums as they collect less plaque compared to regular titanium implants. They won’t create a grey shadow through thin gums like titanium implants.
Implant Stability (ISQ) Monitor
This is a very smart device that measures implant stability and eliminate the guesswork in finding whether the implants are ready for placing teeth on them or not.
