At Troutman Family Dentistry, we want our patients to love their smiles.
Successful dental implant treatments require the hands of a skilled professional like Dr. Troutman. Our dental technology provides faster, safer, and more accurate placement than ever before. Read on to learn more about our dental technology and its benefits.
The advanced dental technology we utilize at our dental practice provides our team and patients with a variety of benefits, such as:
CEREC technology — a computer-aided design and manufacturing machine — allows us to provide same-day restorations for dental implants. This means you can leave our office with a beautiful prosthetic in just one visit. Unlike other dental practices that require a second visit to manufacture the restoration, we can use CEREC to take high-resolution images of your mouth and create the prosthetic right here in our Huntingburg office. This new technology saves you time and hassle and ensures you receive a stunning restoration that looks and feels just like your natural teeth.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a technology that produces high-quality 3D images of the oral cavity, including the teeth, bones, and soft tissue. Unlike traditional dental X-rays, CBCT provides a more detailed and comprehensive view of the entire oral cavity. It involves the CBCT scanner rotating around the patient’s head, capturing multiple images from different angles, which are then reconstructed into a 3D image using specialized software.
CBCT technology has revolutionized the way dentists diagnose and treat dental and maxillofacial conditions, such as dental implants, orthodontic treatment planning, and TMJ disorders. It allows dentists to visualize structures not visible with traditional X-rays, such as the sinuses, nerves, and bone density.
The benefits of CBCT include:
Laser dentistry has become increasingly popular for a variety of treatments such as dental implants, cavity preparation, and gum reshaping. At our Huntingburg practice, Dr. Troutman utilizes WaterLase®, the smallest, most accessible, and most efficient piece of laser dentistry equipment available, to provide premium results for our patients.
WaterLase® technology combines laser energy, air, and water to produce highly precise and controlled treatments. This advanced technology enables Dr. Troutman to increase the speed of treatment and ensure patients receive the most accurate care possible. One of the primary benefits of WaterLase® technology is it’s minimally invasive, resulting in less discomfort and faster recovery times for patients.
Laser dentistry can eliminate a significant amount of pain from many procedures. Most patients don’t need any anesthetic for laser procedures, so you won’t have to wait to become numb. You’ll be able to get back to your daily routine and activities without waiting to recover from numbness.
Yes, laser dentistry is safe. Dental lasers are more accurate and efficient than traditional dental tools, they’re less likely to cause unnecessary harm or remove excess tissue. Dental lasers can provide you with a quicker healing time by stimulating cell growth and sterilizing as it’s used, so it’s less likely you’ll develop an infection.
Our technology helps provide accurate and efficient results while ensuring the safety and comfort of our patients. The 3D CBCT helps provide your dentist with accurate information about your oral health in just one sitting. Digital X-rays use very low levels of radiation, presenting no risks to your health.
Most insurance providers will cover a portion of the dental implant cost. We recommend speaking to your insurance provider to get a detailed look at your coverage plan. During your initial consultation, your dentist will provide an accurate treatment cost estimate and inform you of any in-office financing options.
At Troutman Family Dentistry, we use the latest technology to provide accurate and efficient results for our patients. You can rely on our technology to make your journey to a new smile as smooth as possible.
