Man oh man, am I excited! We are taking some bold new steps in technology here at Smiles by Payet Dentistry by upgrading to the newest version of our In-office, 1-Visit Crowns CAD/CAM system, the CEREC AC Bluecam, AND we’re FINALLY adding the Periolase MVP-7 laser to our practice, which is THE most effective treatment for gum disease available today. Lots more information will be forthcoming as we get closer to the equipment arriving. The Periolase will hopefully be in the office by late August, and the CEREC Bluecam by early September.
But what do each of these additions mean to YOU? Some pretty good things, actually:
1) The CEREC Bluecam is even faster and more accurate than my current CEREC 3D, and it’s software is designed to make doing 4-6 or more veneers/crowns much easier, faster, and better. The other really cool thing is that, even if we can’t do the actual restoration with the CEREC, it’s software allows us to take digital impressions and EMAIL them to the lab! That means NO MORE GOOEY IMPRESSIONS! And the accuracy is just phenomenal. With it’s speed and accuracy, we anticipate being able to complete a 6-10 tooth Smile Makeover in JUST ONE VISIT! How amazing would that be? It can be done with the current version I have, but it’s slow, clunky, and would take absolutely forever – no thanks.
2) As excited as I am about the Bluecam, what I’m MOST excited about is the Periolase MVP-7 laser. This is groundbreaking technology, but it’s not just the laser itself, it is that it’s backed by a FDA-approved, patented protocol for success, not just some company’s word that it works. The Periolase has more research backing it up on it’s successful treatment of gum disease than any other laser currently available. Periodontal disease is responsible for more teeth being lost/extracted even than cavities, and studies show that about 50% of all Americans currently have some level of gum disease, but only 7% actually get treatment. What makes this really crazy is that periodontal disease has been linked to a drastically increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, as well as low birthweight and pre-term babies.
Much more news will be forthcoming about both of these fabulous new technologies that we’re adding for your benefit as we approach their delivery dates. Stay tuned, and be ready to call 704-364-7069 for a consultation or Make an Appointment Online.
