Advanced Dental Technology | Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb in Bernardsville, NJAt Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we use state-of-the-art technology to provide you with the best possible treatment. Besides digital X-rays and Smile Reminders that let you know about your upcoming appointments, we also utilize a number of other innovative technologies.

Here are a few:

Diode Laser

Introduced in the late 1990s, the diode laser is effective for both periodontal therapy and gum recontouring procedures. This compact laser uses a flexible fiber to transmit the laser energy to the problem area. It works best on soft tissues and can cut very precisely with very little or no collateral damage.

Best for very precise procedures, the diode laser can be used a number of times without the need for anesthesia.

Velscope

This hand-held device is an easy to use oral cancer detection system. Velscope works by emitting a safe blue light into your oral cavity, which excites the molecules in your tissue, causing them to fluoresce. By viewing the different fluorescence responses, our dental team can determine what tissue is normal and what is abnormal. This non-invasive screening is clinically proven to help diagnose the presence of pre-cancerous cells.

CEREC

CEREC - Dental Restoration Machine | Porcelain Crowns NJThis dental restoration machine allows us to produce ceramic dental crowns in a single visit. This is done through a variety of computer-assisted technologies such as 3D photography, computer-aided drafting (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) systems.

Besides the one-appointment convenience, the CEREC machine utilizes the latest software and hardware updates, so that restorations like the following can be prepared using the ceramic material that matches the appearance of your natural teeth:

K7 Evaluation System

The K7 unit is a highly sophisticated system for diagnosing and treating temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD). This system works by collecting data on your jaw movements, muscle activity and jaw sounds to detect how your teeth come together. It can uncover prolonged stress and ultimately uncover exactly how your jaw is misaligned.

We have also adopted the T-Scan III device to help Dr. Swaintek-Lamb achieve the most accurate diagnosis possible for issues affecting the bite.

TENS

An acronym for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, this electric machine stimulates your jaw and facial muscles, working out the lactic acid in your jaw muscles while working in fresh blood, oxygen, and nourishment. The result is relaxed muscles and a jaw that ends up in its optimal resting position. From here, our dental team can work to create a dental orthotic (bite guard) to train your jaw to maintain this ideal position.
