Technology is advancing dentistry at a staggering pace. New ways are being developed to make your visits quicker, easier, and more
comfortable, all while improving the world around us. The latest advances mean earlier, less-invasive treatment, which produces faster
healing times and greater precision for dental procedures. The outcomes are exceptional!
75% Reduction in Radiation
Digital X-rays utilize 75% less radiation than classic X-rays! Employing a digital sensor, a picture is taken of your mouth and
downloaded into our computer, where it is instantly available. No more waiting while images develop and no more chemical waste
to taint the environment.
Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the Team
Our dentists treat dental care as a joint effort. One of the ways they succeed in this approach is through the use of the
high-tech intra-oral camera. This tiny video camera delivers a close-up image of the interior of your mouth. You become an
active participant in each dental decision, because you can see what work needs to be completed and which teeth are doing well.
You'll be delighted with the results!
Worried About Knocking Out a Tooth?
Do you realize that 5 million teeth are knocked out each year in the United States? Many activities can be dangerous without
the right protection. And let's face it; the one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in stores just don't fit appropriately. A
sloppy fit means proper breathing can be difficult while running during sports. On the other hand, a custom-made sport
mouthguard fits well, protects well, and can be worn for any sport. The American Dental Association recommends using custom
mouthguards for the following sports: acrobatics, basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, handball, ice
hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, shot-putting, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer,
squash, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weight lifting, and wrestling.
The Cleanest Your Teeth Can Be
The Piezo Scaler™ generates high-frequency vibrations to allow us to remove deposits on your teeth faster than with regular
scaling instruments. This advanced hand tool aids in the stripping of plaque and calculus (tartar) from your teeth, below the
gumline, and even in the deep pockets - a boon for the treatment of gum disease. Your teeth will have never felt so clean! As
an added bonus, most patients report less discomfort with the Piezo Scaler.
Headache and Migraine Suffers – We May Have Your Miracle Treatment!
Do you experience migraines or know someone who does? Perhaps you've heard Diane Sawyer talk about the NTI™ device on Good
Morning America, or read about it in People magazine and wondered, "would this work for me?" This astonishing device is an
FDA-approved, drug-free treatment for the prevention of migraine and tension headaches, and it's now available at Jockey Hollow
Dentistry. It works by painlessly relaxing the muscles under your scalp. In clinical trials, 82% of migraine sufferers felt
relief from their headaches and experienced a 77% reduction in migraine events.
A Bright New Way to Detect Cavities
We are pleased to include a new technology in the fight against cavities. DEXIS CariVu™ shines a light through your tooth,
making it very easy for the doctor to see where early cavities may be. This helps detect future problems to keep an eye on, as well
as issues that need immediate attention. Combined with the use of digital X-rays and the intra-oral camera, CariVu allows us to
determine the complete health of your teeth.
Introducing the Picasso™ Laser
Picasso Laser technology is FDA-approved and safely creates results that until recently would have been considered miraculous.
Many procedures that used to require scalpels or incisions can now be done with the laser. We can cosmetically treat uneven gummy
smile lines, clean and re-contour inflamed tissue around crowns for better long-term results, and treat painful canker sores and
mouth ulcers with instant relief! All with virtually no post-op discomfort and improved recovery time!
Microscopes in Dentistry
Dr. Johnson is one of a limited group of dentists who has had extensive training and skill with the use of a
dental microscope. What does this mean for our patients? We are able to detect decay and fractures in teeth earlier, preserving
healthy tooth structure and maximizing tooth strength. Fillings can be much smaller, because the remarkable visualization means a
far greater certainty that ALL decay is excised before fillings or crowns are installed. And using the microscope means that the
final fit and finish of all fillings and crowns is more precise. Overall, the microscope allows the doctor to catch problems
while they are small, which means accurate, less invasive treatment for you.
Nothing beats an easier, more comfortable dental visit. If you have questions about the
latest dental technology, give us a call today at (973) 543-4828.
