Advanced Dental Technology for Enhanced Care and Precision

Dentist 19425

Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:

Cavitron

The Cavitron is a handheld device used in periodontal deep cleaning. While scaling can be completed by hand, the Cavitron uses ultrasonic technology to remove calculus from teeth and gums quickly, gently, and effectively.

With the Cavitron, patients enjoy a more comfortable experience and time spent scaling and polishing is decreased.

ClearCorrect

Dr. Sheena and our dental team are pleased to provide ClearCorrect orthodontic treatments to both new and existing patients of Byers Station of Chester Springs. If you have crowded, gapped, or misaligned teeth you may be able to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile using this non-invasive, aesthetic straightening option.

For patients who have seen or heard about the Invisalign® clear aligner system, ClearCorrect is just as effective and works in a similar fashion to straighten your teeth. However, ClearCorrect aligners are fabricated solely in the United States and are generally available at a lower cost to you.

Traditional orthodontic treatments often include braces, with unattractive metal brackets and bulky silver wires. However, ClearCorrect is a clear, removable aligner that is worn over the teeth for at least 22 hours each day. They can be removed to allow you to eat, brush, and floss normally during your orthodontic treatment. ClearCorrect is a comfortable, convenient, and easy-to-use solution for straightening your teeth.

ClearCorrect provides other substantial health benefits in addition to straightening teeth. Teeth that are crowded, gapped, or misaligned can be more difficult to keep properly cleaned and flossed. Over time, this can lead to a higher rate of tooth decay. Crowded and misaligned teeth are also more prone to issues like cracking and wearing over time due to improper occlusion (bite). Straightening your teeth with ClearCorrect can protect against these issues. Additionally, misaligned teeth are more likely to develop periodontal (gum) issues. ClearCorrect can help keep gums firm around the teeth, protecting against bacterial infections that can lead to periodontal disease.

The ClearCorrect system is easy and convenient to use. First, you will have a consultation with Dr. Sheena. We will review your oral health needs and determine if you are a good candidate for using ClearCorrect to straighten your smile. Next, a 3D model is created of your teeth. This model is used to design the steps of your individualized treatment plan based on your unique straightening needs. With this model, you will be able to see what your teeth will look like after treatment even before the treatment has begun. ClearCorrect aligners are custom-fabricated for your teeth. About every two to four weeks, you will change to a new aligner, slightly straighter than the one before.

By choosing ClearCorrect to straighten your teeth, you can avoid many of the issues commonly associated with traditional braces. ClearCorrect patients are much less prone to experiencing pain, discomfort, or mouth sores than patients with traditional metal braces. ClearCorrect also allows you to remove your aligners to allow proper brushing and flossing, leading to a reduced rate of plaque buildup and tooth decay.

At Byers Station of Chester Springs, we can help you achieve straight teeth and a beautiful, healthy smile with ClearCorrect. For more information or to schedule a consultation, contact our office.

Digital X-Rays

Our advanced digital X-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.

With digital X-rays, we can view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your dental treatment.

Digital X-rays require much less radiation than traditional film X-rays. Digital X-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.

Intra-Oral Camera

The intra-oral camera is about the size and shape of a pen. It is used to record images of your teeth, gums, mouth, and tongue from inside your mouth. Due to its small size and sleek design, it is comfortable, easy to use, and able to view a wide range of angles. The intra-oral camera is a safe and effective tool that can be used with patients of every age.

The intra-oral camera is a highly valuable resource for both diagnosis and treatment planning. Each time we use the intra-oral camera, a new disposable cover is employed. This ensures your health and safety at all times. After your exam, images captured by the intra-oral camera may be digitally stored, printed out, or deleted.

Intra-Oral Scanner

What is the secret to making a great impression? At Byers Station of Chester Springs, we use our intraoral digital scanner to ensure that the impressions we take are accurate, efficient, and comfortable every time.

Impressions are necessary for the fabrication of dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Our hand-held intra-oral scanner takes 3-dimensional digital video impressions with proven accuracy. Even the most challenging cases can be accurately scanned with our intra-oral scanner.

Another benefit to you is reduced time. When we send precise digital scans to our lab, your restorations require less preparation work and can be fabricated more quickly. This means you can have your restoration placed and enjoy the results sooner than with traditional impression methods.

In the past, you may have experienced dental trays that were filled with a soft substance that hardened into an impression of your mouth and teeth. With the intra-oral scanner’s small hand-held wand, we can take accurate digital impressions quickly and easily, without tripping your gag reflex.

Even more, as we complete your scan, you will be able to view the impression on the monitor along with us. This allows you to see more precisely why we have recommended restoration for your oral health needs.

We look forward to seeing you again at your next appointment with us. We love to make a great impression.

Panoramic X-Rays

A Panoramic X-ray machine rotates around your entire head to take a 360-degree view of your teeth, sinuses, and the bone structure of your head and jaws. This provides a more complete image than standard X-rays. Panoramic X-ray imagery is a valuable resource for Dr. Sheena to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.

Soft Tissue Laser

With soft tissue lasers at our disposal, Dr. Sheena can provide precise high-quality treatments that are relatively pain-free, less invasive, and useful for a wide variety of dental treatments.

A laser is essentially a tiny beam of highly concentrated light. This beam can be used to provide pinpoint accuracy in treatments. Because the laser sterilizes the tissues and seals off blood vessels as it is used, the chance of infection or bleeding following laser treatment is minimal. The soft tissue laser is minimally invasive but highly effective.

With the highly versatile soft tissue laser, Dr. Sheena can seal nerve endings and blood vessels and treat soft tissues simultaneously. This creates less stress on the gums, which significantly reduces both swelling and bleeding. Moreover, by using the soft tissue laser, Dr. Sheena minimizes patients’ discomfort both during and after the treatment and lessens their recovery time.

Dr. Sheena uses soft tissue laser technology to provide our patients with precise dental care with a comfortable dental experience.
