Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:
Our advanced digital x-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.
With digital x-rays, we can view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your dental treatment.
Digital x-rays require much less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.
A Panoramic x-ray machine rotates around your entire head to take a 360-degree view of your teeth, sinuses, and the bone structure of your head and jaws. This provides a more complete image than standard x-rays. Panoramic x-ray imagery is a valuable resource for Dr. Chang to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.
The intra-oral camera is about the size and shape of a pen. It is used to record images of your teeth, gums, mouth, and tongue from inside your mouth. Due to its small size and sleek design, it is comfortable, easy to use, and able to view a wide range of angles. The intra-oral camera is a safe and effective tool that can be used with patients of every age.
The intra-oral camera is a highly valuable resource for both diagnosis and treatment planning. Each time we use the intra-oral camera, a new disposable cover is employed. This ensures your health and safety at all times. After your exam, images captured by the intra-oral camera may be digitally stored, printed out, or deleted.
The Cavitron is a handheld device used in periodontal deep cleaning. While scaling can be completed by hand, the Cavitron uses ultrasonic technology to remove calculus from teeth and gums quickly, gently and effectively.
With the Cavitron, patients enjoy a more comfortable experience and time spent scaling and polishing is decreased.
Rotary Endodontics Handpiece
A rotary endodontics handpiece is a tool designed to be used in root canal therapy. By using this handpiece, we can complete the treatment gently and efficiently. This allows you to have a quicker and more comfortable treatment experience.
Nomad™ X-Ray Gun
The Nomad™ handheld x-ray system is battery-powered for completely cordless portability. With the Nomad™ gun, we can take accurate, efficient scans with less radiation exposure than most conventional systems. The Nomad™ is comfortable, convenient, and can be used in any treatment room.
Cone Beam Imaging
Cone Beam imaging is an advanced form of digital radiograph. With the cone beam imager, one simple scan will produce a 3D image of your entire maxillofacial structure. This image can then be used in diagnostics, patient education, treatment planning, and treatment follow-up.
When it comes to fighting gum disease, it’s important to find a comfortable way to do so. The Perio Protect Method® utilizes patented Perio Trays® that treat deep periodontal pockets where traditional toothbrushes fail to reach. These trays are custom made for your needs, and are the only periodontal medicine delivery mechanism with certified FDA clearance.
Zephyr Dental has integrated the use of CEREC technology to offer same-day dental restorations to new and existing patients. Dr. Yong Chang and his team are committed to providing the most efficient and effective innovations available, and the CEREC is no exception. The patented CEREC technology designs and crafts high quality, metal-free dental restorations in a single patient visit.
CEREC Primescan Intra Oral Scanner
CEREC makes dental restoration effective and efficient. CEREC Primescan eliminates the need for most in-office impressions. This allows for more patient comfort and ease of treatment.
CEREC allows for same-day crowns in most cases. This conveniently eliminates the need for multiple visits and the need for uncomfortable, temporary crowns.
Using CEREC, patients can leave an appointment with a brand new restoration. CEREC ends the need for multiple appointments, messy impressions, and weeks of waiting for a lab to make the restoration. Temporary restorations are no longer needed. CEREC is ready the same day.
You may be a candidate for CEREC if you:
· Have been told you need a new crown, inlay, onlay or bridge
· Have a cracked tooth
· Have old failing restorations
· Have had damage or trauma to your tooth
· Are interested in replacing old metal restorations with biocompatible restorations
