New technology at Pediatric Dentistry of Brandon benefits children.
Pediatric Dentists Dr. Jorges Torres and Dr. Lyda Lopez at Pediatric Dentistry of Brandon, FL do everything they can to make oral health care for children comfortable and precise. They have recently introduced new technology to assist with digital imaging, treatment planning, and soft tissue treatment.
By using an IRIS HD intraoral camera they easily show patients and their parents areas of the mouth that need treatment. A digital camera on a small, lighted wand comfortably takes close-up photos inside the mouth with extreme clarity. Parents are invited to see their child’s intraoral images and dental x-rays on a digital tablet, where the images can be expanded to view problem areas and dental features in detail.
The iTero digital system is used to scan the mouth and create an articulated 3D digital model for orthodontic treatment planning. The 3D data can be transferred to an Invisalign lab to make orthodontic aligners with extremely precise fit. iTero’s ClinCheck simulation software enables patients and parents to visualize how the teeth and smile will look after treatment with Invisalign. Orthodontic simulations are viewed on a large-screen UHD TV.
Few of the nation’s pediatric dentists use Waterlase® laser technology, and now Pediatric Dentistry of Brandon is one of the first. The Waterlase technology employs water and laser energy to precisely cut soft tissue when Drs. Torres and Lopez perform soft tissue procedures such as tongue-tie release, frenectomy, and gingival tooth exposure. Soft tissue cutting with Waterlase is more comfortable and fast than traditional surgery, and this type of cutting reduces bleeding, post-operative pain and swelling.
A diode laser is used to quickly dry moisture and stop bleeding in the mouth. This enables Dr. Torres and Lopez to comfortably and quickly do dental restorations such as dental bonding and to stop bleeding after tooth extraction. This efficiency allows them to minimize the time a child is in the dental chair and speed wound healing.
