Dental Technology
Spokane, WA


Dentist reviewing a digital x-ray at Bryan Hill, DDS in Spokane, WAAt Bryan Hill, DDS, we provide specialized training for our professionals to work with a variety of dental technology to better serve you during your dental appointment. These procedures are more comfortable for our patients and have shorter recovery times.

Soft Tissue Laser



Soft tissue lasers work by interacting with water and hemoglobin, which is a protein that is present in red blood cells. Soft tissue lasers can cut through soft tissues with ease and minimal discomfort. In addition, using lasers in dentistry allows for faster healing since the lasers will cauterize the blood vessels on contact. We can use soft tissue lasers to cut through the gums and make space for a dental implant.

CAD-CAM



Computer-aided design (CAD), also called computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), is a technology used to produce dental implants and other dental restorations. These machines produce more precise dental restorations and can also do so faster than traditional manufacturing. In fact, these restorations can be provided on the same day as your treatment procedure or extraction. Generally, these appointments will take between 40 minutes and two hours.

Digital Radiography



Digital radiography is something that an increasing number of medical professionals, especially dentists, are using in place of older, more traditional x-ray technology. Instead of having images of a patients’ oral cavity confined to the straight on view, black and white version of conventional scanners, digital radiography immediately displays the images of the inside of the mouth in a much more detailed and clear visual. Some methods even operate in real time, with the ability to rotate and capture 360 degrees of the area.

Intraoral Scanners



Intraoral scanners, like the iTerro element, use cameras that are useful for capturing sharp and clear images of the oral cavity. They look like small wands and usually come with wireless PC connectivity features. They are usually laden with LED lights so no external lighting is needed. The patients also get to see the condition of their oral cavity as the dentist is examining them.

3D Cone Beam



3D cone beams, also known as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), are another option for getting digital images of your mouth. These machines rotate around the head, capturing various images which are then used to construct a full 3D image of the mouth, face, and neck. Like digital panoramic x-rays, this shows any issues with the bone structure or underlying abnormalities that would need to be treated prior to implant surgery.

Guided Dental Implant Tech



With these highly detailed images, our professionals can lay out a specific treatment plan using guided dental implant procedures. This treatment plan identifies an exact location for the dental implant prior to the surgery. This ensures that our dental professionals are more prepared than they would be with traditional dental implant surgery. Doing this allows us to address any potential problems and reduce the surgical risk for our patients. This process also involves a machine that acts as a surgical guide to ensure that the incision and implant are in precisely planned locations.

Micro Dentistry



Micro dentistry is a smaller field of dentistry that involves performing as minimally invasive of a procedure as possible. This is especially useful for dental implant surgery so that we can ensure a quick recovery and patient comfort. There are various techniques that can be used for this, such as microscope guided dental procedures and alternatives to various dental instruments.
