Digital x-rays are able to show areas of decay that may not be able to be seen with a visual examination alone. Damage to dental fillings, bone loss, root canal problems, cysts, and tooth growth can be visualized using this technology. X-rays help our dentists plan dental implant placement, orthodontic treatments, dentures, and other dental work.
We use an intraoral camera to help us better identify dental problems and diagnose patients. The intraoral digital camera provides a close-up view of teeth from angles that normally would be more challenging. In addition, the camera can provide a real-time image as well as a printed picture of the mouth. There are multiple benefits to this technology, including high-power magnification and lighting, better and more accurate documentation, and the ability to educate patients with clearer dental pictures.
Laser Cavity Detection is used to scans teeth to measure fluorescence within the tooth structure. Higher levels of fluorescence are proportionate to extensive tooth decay. This tool enables our dentists to more quickly diagnose decay and prevent extensive tooth and gum damage. Early detection means fewer dental treatments, and laser detection is non-invasive and highly accurate.
TRIOS is an intra-oral scanner that takes high definition photos of teeth and gums as they are scanned. The HD photos add a level of detail make it easier to find the placement of teeth. This digital solution can also create 3-D digital impressions, measures color shades of teeth. Using this information, dental technicians are able to design and manufacture high-quality dental restorations.

Are you in need of a custom mouthguard for contact sports? When professionally crafted, sports mouthguards minimize the risk of injury, concussions, and trauma. If properly fitted, mouthguards allow patients to speak more clearly and prevent chipped, damaged, and knocked out teeth. Furthermore, over-the-counter ill-fitting mouthguards do not offer an appropriate fit. Professional mouthguards crafted by a dentist and their team offer a safer option for patients.
In severe situations, we may recommend removing wisdom teeth and teeth that are crooked, overcrowded, and decayed. Following an extraction, Dr. Catanzano will recommend restorative and cosmetic treatment. Common treatment options include Invisalign, full and partial dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants.
