Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a specialised x-ray used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Your doctor may use this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.
This process is used for wisdom teeth issues and dental implants planning
No more impressions, No more mouth full of putty.
Utilising 3D software your dentist places a pen sized camera in your mouth to scan to your teeth gum area. This gives an accurate 3D image to show you, plan and design your treatment in chair easily and quickly saving you time.
Nervous? Understandable! You are not alone, many people are apprehensive about dental treatment. Whether you are three, or eighty three, Dr Paul Stephens, of 7to7dentist.com in Wyoming, is happy to serve the nervous. Happy gas is a sweet smelling gas, that makes you feel all nice and happy (hence the name, laughing gas, or happy gas!). Its correct name is nitrous oxide, a very sweet smelling gas. When you breath in the happy gas,it goes into your lungs, and bloodstream almost immediately. We can easily adjust the level of nitrous oxide up or down. It is exceptional for anxious kids, and adults who may be anxious, due to past dental treatment. Laughing gas is very safe, and well tolerated by all. It is, however, important to have someone drive you home. If Dr Stephens feels happy gas is not appropriate for an anxious patient, he is happy to arrange for intravenous sedation, or a general anaesthetic elsewhere on the central coast. Usually, this not needed, as happy gas
is an excellent, safe, and (dare I say it) fun way to have your dental treatment done. Happy gas is a sweet smelling gas that allows almost total relaxation for even the most anxious people.
Air polishing is a procedure which uses air & water pressure to deliver a controlled stream of specially processed powers in a slurry through handpiece nozzle. Fine particles of powders are propelled by compressed air in a warm spray and directed onto the surfaces of the teeth. This pressurized jet of air, water and powder removes surface stains, plaque and other soft deposits such as food particles trapped in between the teeth.
But AIR-FLOW Therapy isn’t a typical air polishing treatment.
Digital radiographs (x rays) mean less exposure, and better record keeping. Here at 7to7dentist.com, we use the latest digital technologies. Digital x rays also have many other advantages. They can be viewed on a computer screen, and explanations are much easier to understand, when something can be seen on a computer screen.
When the image is inside the computer, it can have special image processing techniques to enhance the image for different dental applications. Perhaps the most common, and impressive, is the zoom function. This allows the tooth and bone to be shown much larger than it is in the mouth.
Exposure time is up to 90% less than with standard x-rays. Radiographs are important to check the health of your teeth and gums. They are excellent at showing up decay in between teeth, and decay underneath old fillings. Dental x-rays are also important to assess any gum problems, periodontal issues,and with wisdom teeth. They can also be used to see abcesses on teeth, and fractures

A variety of salivary tests can be used, which are of particular use when patients have a large amount of failing dental work, and they are not sure why. Many patients take good care of their teeth at home, yet still have a high decay rate, and/or periodontal disease. Understanding, and then treating salivary issues can significantly lessen future dental needs.

Negative Flow rooms are good for you and bad for viruses. Essentially there’s a gradient between the outside of the room and inside the room, so that the air pressure inside the room will not flow out (protecting people in and out of the room) which is an important part of stopping the Covid-19 virus and others.
Dental 3D printers feature lights or lasers that polymerize a liquid or fuse a powder with the computer-guided precision required to produce small objects with intricate details. They are capable of producing models, parts and even complete restorations out of a range of materials.
