The VELscope® Vx system enhances the way practitioners examine the oral mucosa and screen for tissue abnormalities, potentially leading to the earlier discovery of precancer, cancer or other disease processes. Early detection is one of the best mechanisms for enabling treatment success, increasing survival rates and maintaining a high quality of life.

Invisalign

Invisalign

With more than 1.6 million patients treated, Invisalign® clear braces use a series of clear, nearly invisible removable appliances that gently move teeth to a desired final position.  Invisalign® significantly reduces the esthetic concerns associated with braces, resulting in a 98% satisfaction rate over the past 13 years.  The new SmartForce features in Invisalign® G4 are engineered to help dentists achieve better clinical results.  Invisalign® is not for everyone, some malocclusion cases are best treated with traditional orthodontic methods. Important factors for Invisalign® success include clinical treatment planning and case selection by the dentist and patient motivation and commitment.

LASER

Biolase-Epic-10

What do you think of when you think “laser”? Light sabers from star wars perhaps?  Real life lasers are not as fun and cool as ideas in fiction, they are very powerful, useful and precise tools. LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, which is a fancy term for concentrated energy from light.  Laser-based manufacturing is taking processing methods to a whole new level in materials, engineering, and machining.  Lasers are also used in surgeries, such as correction of vision.

In the field of dentistry, lasers have many applications and uses.  There are also many types of lasers.  In some cases, lasers can replace the scalpel in procedures to enhance healing speed, reduce discomfort, post-op bacterial infection, and post-op bleeding.  Laser surgery can be gentle enough for babies! It also helps to kill bacteria in deep pockets of the gums in adults.  In your individual treatment planning, Honey Dental will present ways that laser technology can help enhance your oral health!

At Honey Dental we keep up with latest technology, one example is our iTero machine. ITero is a digital scanner used instead of traditional molds which can make patients uncomfortable and cause them to gag.

Used for cases like crowns, invisalign, and other restorative procedures, iTero creates a digital 3-D scan that Dr. Santilli and the patient can review before sending it off.

Check out more about iTero on their website.

At Honey Dental we provide a take-home overnight sleep test. For our patients that experience trouble sleeping, snoring issues, and other disruptive sleeping patterns that could be related to your oral health, we offer an easier solution than the overnight hospital studies.
