SOPROLIFE - Intraoral Camera
SOPROLIFE is a new imaging fluorescence device aiding in the diagnosis and treatment of caries. The auto fluorescence technology in SOPROLIFE allows us to detect occlusal or interproximal decay, even in its earliest stages, which can often be missed by the eyes or by x-rays. It also allows us to differentiate healthy from infected tissue in order to excavate only the tissue which is diseased. SOPROLIFE functions "live" in three modes and is free from ultraviolet or ionizing rays.
The DIAGNOdent is a new high tech laser system that aids in early
diagnosis of cavities in the complex anatomy of the chewing surfaces
of teeth. It utilizes laser light of a defined wavelength to help
detect and quantify demineralized tooth substances without x-ray
OralCDx represents a breakthrough in oral cancer detection, a test
that will allow you and your dentist to improve the prognosis of
a disease that has remained unchanged for the last 50 years.
OralCDx is the first computerized brush biopsy system. It allows
dentists to quickly, painlessly and reliably detect oral cancer
in its earliest, most easily treatable stage.
Originally developed as part of the Star Wars missile
defense program, the OralCDx computer system includes a neural network-based
image processing system specifically adapted to detect abnormalities
unique to oral brush biopsy samples.
The cavitron is an ultrasonic scaler. Power
scalers do a more thorough job in less time. This
results in significantly decreased scaling time
and healthier, cleaner teeth and gums. Hand scalers
require repetitive scraping movements and are
restricted to adaptation of only one or two sides
of the instrument. In comparison, all four sides
of a power scaler can be adapted, because the
device moves in an elliptical motion. This comes
in handy when removing stain and deposits from
behind and between the teeth. Ultrasonic scalers
are more effective in removing stain as well.
The ultrasonic vibration helps control oral bacteria
by breaking down the cell wall of the bacteria.
The water used to cool the cavitron then helps
to rinse away bacteria, stain and debris.
An advanced air polishing cleaning technology which
uses air/water/sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to
gently remove stains and dental plaque while at the
same time polishing the teeth.
technology in veneer fabrication allows us to perform dazzling transformations
with minimal surface preparation.
white fillings have been around for a long time, the new materials
can now be used in a wider range of applications allowing you to
keep your smile as white as it can be!
