Our Newest Technology
Galileos is our new 3D Cone Beam Xray machine. It offers excellent image quality while still providing minimal radiation to the patient. The value of this addition to my practice has been priceless. It has the ability to aid in future implant placement and I have been able to provide a more detailed and definitive diagnosis and treatment for my patients. The cone beam gives me the ability to detect more pathology than the traditional 2D xrays such as abscesses, root fractures and abnormal anatomy of the periodontium. For this reason and many more, I believe I can confidently provide my patients with the highest quality of dental care available. The Galileos is the future of dentistry and we are happy to have it available for our patients!
CEREC is a high-tech device used to design and manufacture ceramic tooth restorations at the dental practice while the patient waits. The CERECequipment is comprised of an Omnicam which features ColorStreaming technology, 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to help the dentist design the ideal restoration for the clinical situation, and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technology that uses two high-speed diamond burs to mill a precise restoration according to the CAD software specifications. The milling process is completed in less than 10 minutes and the entire restorative procedure is completed in a single appointment
Oral DNA Testing that Dr. Kim Utilizes allows for a more specific diagnosis of your periodontal needs, leading to more effective treatment. We can diagnose the different kinds of bacteria that are causing your gum inflammation, infection, and determine if there are any pathogens that may pose a greater risk to your oral and overall health. Oral DNA testing plays an important role in our perio treatment because it allows us to better understand where the bacteria is in your mouth and what problems the bacteria could be causing. With OralDNA we can assess your personal risk, and address your issue at its source to prevent worsening symptoms. OralDNA testing can determine the severity of your periodontal disease and whether you may be at risk for other systemic disorders including certain heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers, and low birth- weight babies.
Dr. Kim Uses a non-surgical periodontal therapy called Modular Periodontal Therapy. Modular Periodontal Therapy involves proper diagnosis, medications and convenient at home care. Using Oral DNA, we can thoroughly diagnose your level of periodontal disease.
