At Green Dentistry, we use the latest dental technology available to ensure our patients achieve the best possible results. This includes:
Our office employs the use of digital x-ray technology. When your dental x-rays are taken, they are stored digitally in your patient file instead of printed out on a radiograph.
We use intraoral cameras to help us get a full view of the inside of your mouth from every angle. We can obtain video and still images that are uploaded to your digital chart along with other diagnostic imaging.
Velscope & Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer affects more than 50,000 Americans a year, but when we catch this potentially debilitating and even deadly disease early, your chances of successful treatment and recovery increase dramatically. Introducing VELscope, an extremely effective, highly accurate, handheld scanner designed to detect oral cancer at its earliest stages. A quick and completely non-invasive screening with VELscope as part of your comprehensive oral exam can give you peace of mind and possibly save your life.
The innovative DIAGNOdent technique uses laser fluorescence to detect the presence of caries within a tooth. It allows us to better visualize occlusal decay and provide the most precise treatment possible.
Soft and Hard-Tissue Dental Lasers
We use Er,Cr:YSGG, Er:YAG and Nd:YAG dental lasers to treat a wide variety of oral health conditions, such as gum disease. Laser dentistry promotes increased comfort and faster healing for many dental procedures compared to other methods.
We use ultrasonic waves during deep cleanings to shake loose even the smallest particles of plaque, tartar, and debris in between the tight spaces of your teeth.
3D Imaging Technology
For precise, same-day dental procedures, we use computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology to create 3D printed restorations. This allows us to create a digital mold of your teeth without using goopy alginate.
CEREC same-day dental crowns use CAD/CAM technology to quickly create crowns that can be used on natural teeth or dental implant abutments. These crowns are made from biocompatible porcelain instead of composite resin.
Oral Microbiome Testing
Oral Microbiome Testing is a simple way to check for certain risk factors that contribute to oral diseases like gum disease and tooth decay. At Green Dentistry in San Francisco, we now offer Oral Microbiome Testing through OralDNA® Labs, a company that specializes in salivary testing for oral and dental health.
We believe in staying on the forefront of the dental industry to offer our patients state-of-the-art dental care in a comfortable environment. Contact us today to learn more about how advanced dental technology can help you obtain optimal oral health.
