Yomi Robotic Assistance
Yomi is the culmination of several dental technologies which aid in precise and minimally invasive dental implant placement – and we’re proud to be the only practice in Greenville, Texas, that uses it. It’s helpful in a couple of ways. First off, Yomi allows us to use your digital scans/x-rays to accurately plan the placement of your implant to ensure lasting results. When your doctor selects the position, Yomi ensures your implant is placed accurately so you can have the smile you’ve always deserved. Secondly, Yomi can see below your gums (because it uses your digital scans) – this is great because it eliminates the need for your doctor to open your gums so he can see your bone. This means either no incision or a smaller incision, no sutures or fewer sutures (depending on the situation), which means less pain, and a much easier recovery!
Yomi is the first and only system for robotic guidance for dental implant surgery in the United States and is cleared by the FDA. Yomi will not replace your doctor – it merely aids in the placement of your implant. Your doctor will be in control the entire time.
High Definition Intraoral Scanning
Remember those times when your other dentist needed an impression so they would shove a tray of cold plastic-flavored goo into your mouth and hold it there for far too long? And if they didn’t get it right, they’d have to do it again. With our state-of-the-art iTero and PrimeScan digital intraoral scanners, your doctor can achieve the ultimate impression with a wave of the wand, and without having to fill your mouth with icky-tasting impression material. Think of it like scanning a document, except with our technology, we scan every single minute detail of your teeth, down to the smallest micron. This allows us to create perfect-fitting restorations for your mouth and considerably cuts down on the time you have to spend in the chair.
Our practice uses the Biolase WaterLase for many procedures in order to provide you with the best possible care. If you’re wondering how a laser can improve your smile, here are some things we can do (many of which do not require the use of anesthetic):
- Treat periodontal disease
- Improve the hardness of a dental filling
- Instead of a drill, we can use our laser to remove decay from your tooth
- Treat soft-tissue problems like cold sores
- Speed up teeth whitening
- Fix your gumline via recontouring
Getting a crown used to be such a bitter process. It used to last weeks to go from taking the initial impressions to seating the final crown in your mouth. You used to have to sit there while they took the impression with that awful-tasting stuff, then they would set you up with a plastic temporary crown and send you home for two weeks while they sent your impressions to a dental lab. The lab would then mill your new crown and mail it back to your dentist. You would have to come back in and have your final crown seated, while everyone crossed their fingers that the crown fits well in your mouth so you wouldn’t have to do it all over again.
Now, with the CEREC in-office crown milling system (partnered with other awesome technologies like our iTero digital impression scanner), we can take a very detailed digital impression, send it to our in-office CEREC crown milling machine, and in the same visit, we’ll be seating your final crown – and it’ll fit so nicely.
- No more disgusting impression material
- No more flimsy temporary crowns
- No two-week wait for your final crown
- No second appointment
- No more getting numb again
Cone Beam Computed Tomography Imaging
Welcome to the future of dental imaging. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a massive step forward in the arena of imaging and diagnostics, offering our practice the ability to visualize intricate structures inside our patients’ mouths, such as sinuses, root canals, possible cavities, and nerves – all in 3D, so we can analyze all aspects of your mouth from every angle. Our Vatech Green CT uses low-dose radiation to achieve the best possible images, which decreases the need for invasive procedures, shortens treatment times, and allows your doctor to provide the best outcomes.
