Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA)
Single tooth anesthesia is the first computer-controlled local dental anesthetic system. Unlike the traditional dental syringe application of anesthesia, STA is a kid-friendly alternative that eliminates the need for a dental injection. In addition, another benefit of single tooth anesthesia is that the anesthetic effects are limited to the tooth, not the lip or face. Therefore, this eliminates concerns about a child biting their lip (during or following a procedure) due to numbness.
StemSave provides families with the opportunity to collect and preserve the valuable stem cells that are contained within the baby teeth, wisdom teeth and permanent teeth. Through cryopreservation, these stem cells can be used to treat future disease or injury. Today, scientists are directing stem cells so they can grow into almost any type of human cell, including heart, brain, cartilage, liver, and insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells.
At Park View Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we use digital imaging to process dental X-rays. Our digital X-ray system requires less radiation than conventional X-rays, significantly reducing radiation exposure to your child. The digital images are made using an image receptor that is placed in your child’s mouth to capture the X-ray image.
Digital Dental Scanner (iTero)
Our state-of-the-art digital dental scanner is an intraoral scanner that can be used to produce custom-fitted restorative dental crowns as well as perform accurate orthodontic scans, such as those required for braces or Invisalign. As a result, patients can enjoy faster office visits and shorter turnaround times between scanning, device fabrication, and actually receiving treatment.
