TSCAN Bite Force Mapping from Tekscan
In a healthy smile, the force of the patient’s bite is distributed evenly. But when the force is unevenly distributed throughout your smile or if some of your upper and lower teeth bump into each other prematurely, it means you have a malocclusion. A malocclusion can not only cause serious health issues but can also damage dental implants and other restorations, such as crowns.
With TSCAN from Tekscan, our Whidbey Island dentists are able to get a detailed, 3D model of your bite and use this detailed information to plan your unique dental restoration plan.
CEREC Same Day Restorations
With this revolutionary system, our dentists on Whidbey Island can take digital impressions of your smile and create a custom, metal-free dental crown in just one office visit. Whether you’re coming in for an emergency visit or just need to replace a crown, CEREC gives you a permanent, natural looking restoration without the inconvenience of having to wait for a crown to come back from the lab.
Velscope Oral Cancer Screening
Historically, oral cancer has had a low survival rate compared to other cancers because of it’s late diagnosis. At Whidbey Dental Associates, we use Velscope, the latest oral cancer screening technology to provide our patients with early diagnoses and greater chance for remission. If you’re noticing symptoms that resemble oral cancer, we strongly urge you to contact our dentists for an appointment and oral cancer screening.
X-Nav Dynamic 3D Navigation
Used to precisely place dental implants, X-Nav 3D Navigation is the only available technology that provides our dentists with a real-time digital view of the surgical site. This allows them to pinpoint the ideal position, angle, and depth for placing your dental implants.
CBCT 3D Digital Scans
Creating successful treatment plans starts with getting an in-depth understanding of your unique health situation. Dental cone beam scans (also known as CT Scans) gives our Whidbey Island dentists 3D imaging of the teeth, soft tissue, nerves, and bones, allowing them to diagnose potential problems and recommend advanced treatments like dental implant surgery, wisdom teeth extraction, and more.
Advanced digital X-rays do the same thing conventional X-rays do–they produce images of the internal structure of the tooth. But digital X-rays are much faster and they produce much clearer imagery. Best of all, digital X-rays produce minimal radiation, which makes them much safer than conventional X-rays.
