Modern advanced dental technologies help dentists create a better dental care experience for patients. Molars Dental Group embraces the best modern technology and techniques to offer our patients effective treatment in a more comfortable environment.
Dentistry has changed over the past ten years, and it continues to evolve. New and emerging tools and techniques allow professional dentists to offer bespoke services that suit your unique mouth and your needs. With new technology, we can often perform many dental procedures more effectively, reducing treatment and recovery time, minimizing side effects, and ultimately achieving more precise results.
If you have any questions about the technology we use in our practice, or if you are interested in scheduling a consultation with one of our dentists, please contact us.

Using the most advanced dental technology possible is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques. Because our practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology in our office.
Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose patients to less radiation than traditional X-ray technology.
Our practice is focused on making your dental experience as comfortable as possible. At your next appointment, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about our digital X-ray technology.
You know the importance of prevention when it comes to your dental health, and we’re always looking for new, improved ways to help you achieve a healthy smile for life. While X-rays provide valuable information, they don’t give a complete view of everything that is going on inside your mouth. With the use of an intraoral camera, we can see every aspect of your teeth and mouth with incredible detail, uncovering cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings, and excessive wear. When we can discover oral problems early on, your treatment is much less invasive and much more cost effective.
Our intraoral camera is small, about the size of the mirror we use during your regular hygiene appointments. You probably wouldn’t even notice we’re using it, except that with the intraoral camera, you have the opportunity to see everything we see on a monitor. This is a great tool to help you become more informed about your dental health, as it gives you a clear understanding of your teeth’s condition, and it allows you to make a more informed decision regarding your treatment options.
DIGITAL CT IMAGING
Digital CT imaging systems allows your doctor to provide quick, comfortable, and effective dental imaging for the most precise dental health diagnosis possible. Digital technology provides 3D data for:
- Dental implants
- Wisdom teeth extractions
- TMJ treatment
- Airway assessments and sleep apnea
- Full facial and jaw 3D images
You can take advantage of a more complete dental treatment with digital CT imaging. Special features for patients include:
- One 20-second scan that provides enough data for a complete diagnosis
- A safer diagnosis with less radiation than traditional CT scanners
- Increased comfort: patients are seated in an open environment with plenty of space
- A more cost-effective imaging system
- Doctors can easily share the data with patients, so that patients stay informed and are able to make educated decisions on their course of treatment
Our office is pleased to offer digital CT imaging for patients who receive dental treatment. Come and see for yourself what it’s like to receive a more advanced, patient-friendly dental experience.
Intraoral Scanner: Digital Scanning For Accuracy and Precision
No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. Using the latest in digital technology, your dentist can take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth. The new technology ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
The Cerec Intraoral Scanner now helps us to scan your teeth and digitally upload the data to our dental lab.
The advantages of the scanner are:
- It replaces traditional impressions which can be an unpleasant experience for some causing gagging.
- Accuracy is much more superior to traditional impressions.
- Faster – the data can be sent instantly to our lab for manufacturing of crowns, inlays/onlays.
Our digital impression scanner captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once your dentist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.
Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and in as little as two to three minutes, renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software, you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans including a three-dimensional model of your teeth on our computer screen. Digital impressions can be used for any restorative treatment including crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, bridges, implants, and orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign.
CAD CAM System
At Molars Dental Clinic, we offer porcelain veneers restorations in a single visit. Why go to the dentist a second time if you don’t have to?
About Intra CAD CAM System
The CAD CAM technology is used to create porcelain restorations (crowns, inlays/onlays) in a single appointment to restore damaged teeth. Teeth with extensive cavities cannot be successfully restored using composites, and even if restored, it will not last for a long time. The solution is Porcelain Restorations. In the early days, dentists had to take an impression of the damaged tooth and send it to a dental lab and wait for a week to receive the ceramic crown or restoration. In the meantime, the patient would be given a temporary restoration. Now, porcelain restoration can be made in the clinic on the same day.
How It Works
This cutting-edge tool has a very high-resolution scanner, which we use to scan the damaged tooth surface. Using high-end software, the dentist designs the porcelain restoration to replace or crown the damaged area, mimicking a perfect tooth anatomy. The dentist chooses the shade of the ceramic block to match the natural color of your teeth. This scanned design is then sent to a milling unit located in the clinic, which then mills the final restoration to the precise specifications. Once the porcelain restoration is complete, it is then bonded to your tooth.
- Same day restorations can be done in most cases
- No temporary crowns or restorations that can break and cause discomfort
- Your time is saved as you have fewer visits to the dentists
- Longevity of the porcelain is much higher than composite to restore large cavities
- Porcelain inlays mimic teeth structure more closely and do not stain as easily as composite
