FastBraces Technology

With safety in mind, Fastbraces® Technology was developed to straighten teeth differently – allowing for a fast, safe and affordable solution.

Fastbraces® Technology allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torquing them from the very first appointment. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months. It has been developed and tested over the past 25 years and is now becoming available in countries around the world. Fastbraces® Technology is fast, safe, easy and affordable treatment. With the patented triangular design of the braces, cutting edge techniques and a special heat-activated wire, this new technology is revolutionizing the field of orthodontics.

ClearCorrect

If you’re not completely happy with your smile, but aren’t a big fan of metal braces, clear aligners might be just the thing for you. Straighter teeth don’t just look better, they work better too. Poorly-aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, can wear out faster, and are more prone to cavities. And once you’ve got a smile you love, you may just find you can’t help but show it off.  A good first impression starts with a smile. Let’s make yours the best it can be. Based on Dr. Kim's prescription, ClearCorrect uses advanced  technology to create custom clear aligners that apply targeted pressure to your teeth, slowly moving them into alignment.

Deep Cleaning - Scaling & Root Planning

Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) are a variation of traditional computed tomography (CT)systems. The CBCT systems used by dental professionals rotate around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. These data are used to reconstruct a three-dimensional (3D) image of the following regions of the patient’s anatomy: dental (teeth); oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw, and neck); and ears, nose, and throat (“ENT”).

Dental CBCT systems have been sold in the United States since the early 2000s and are increasingly used by radiologists and dental professionals for various clinical applications including dental implant planning, visualization of abnormal teeth, evaluation of the jaws and face, cleft palate assessment, diagnosis of dental caries (cavities), endodontic (root canal) diagnosis, and diagnosis of dental trauma.

The time needed for a full scan is typically under one minute and the radiation dosage is up to a hundred times less than that of a regular CT scanner.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it. The common causes affecting the pulp are a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, repeated dental treatment to the tooth or trauma. The term "root canal" comes from cleaning of the canals inside the tooth's root.

Dental Decay & Filling

Dental caries (caries is Latin for "rottenness"), also known as tooth decay, cavities, or caries, is a breakdown of teeth due to activities of bacteria. The cavities may be a number of different colors from yellow to black. Symptoms may include pain and difficulty with eating. Complications may include inflammation of the tissue around the tooth, tooth loss, and infection or abscessformation.

The cause of caries is bacterial break down of the hard tissues of the teeth (enamel, dentin and cementum). This occurs due to acidmade from food debris or sugar on the tooth surface. Simple sugars in food are these bacteria's primary energy source and thus a diet high in simple sugar is a risk factor. If mineral breakdown is greater than build up from sources such as saliva, caries results. Risk factors include conditions that result in less saliva such as: diabetes mellitus, Sjogren's syndrome and some medications. 

A dental restoration or dental filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing toothstructure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma.

A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth.

Inlay, Onlay - Partial Crown

Dental inlays and onlays are restorations used to repair rear teeth with mild to moderate decay or cracked and fractured teeth that are not sufficiently damaged to need a crown.

Ideal candidates for inlay or onlay work typically have too much damage or decay in the tooth structure to be successfully treated using a filling, but have sufficient healthy tooth remaining to avoid the need for a crown. This allows the dentist to conserve more of the patient’s original tooth structure.

There are other benefits to inlays and onlays in comparison to fillings:

  • Inlays and onlays are durable — they’re made from tough, hard-wearing materials which last up to 30 years.

  • They help to strengthen teeth by up to 75 percent, unlike traditional fillings which can actually reduce the strength of the teeth by up to 50 percent.

  • Inlays and onlays prolong tooth life and prevent the need for more dental treatment in the future.

Kids Root Canal & Stainless Steel Crown

A baby tooth is smaller than an adult tooth, so decay can spread quickly. 
Where the decay is deep and involves the nerve of the tooth a pulpotomy is needed to protect adult tooth underneath it. This is where the infected nerve tissue is removed and a medicament placed directly over the nerve tissue of the roots. A protective stainless steel crown is then placed over this.
Where there is extensive damage and pain, or an abscess (gumboil) is present the tooth is extracted.
A space maintainer may be required from an orthodontist to prevent teeth moving and this allows adequate space for the permanent tooth to erupt.

Veneers - Laminates

Veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic (porcelain) or a composite resin material, which are bonded to the front of teeth. This procedure requires little or no anesthesia and can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Veneers are placed to mask discolorations, to brighten teeth and to improve a smile.

Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth's color, size or shape. Veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline and damage due to an injury or as a result of a root-canal procedure. They are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider veneers. Generally, veneers will last for many years, and the technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed.

3D Image Guided Implant Surgery

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. The benefit of using implants is that they don't rely on neighboring teeth for support and they are permanent and stable. Implants are a good solution to tooth loss because they look and feel like natural teeth.

It is very important that the hole must be positioned in sufficient bone to hold the implant and the implant must be correctly aligned with the position of the future tooth to restore it correctly. To meet these challenges, doctors can obtain 3D data (CT scan) of a patient’s jawbone , import the data into implant planning software, and virtually place the implant in the correct position.

Sealant

What Is a Sealant?

A dental sealant is a thin plastic film painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth to prevent cavities.

 

How effective are sealants?

Studies have proven that properly applied sealants are 100-percent effective in protecting the tooth surfaces from cavities. As long as the sealant remains intact, small food particles and bacteria that cause cavities cannot penetrate through or around a sealant. Sealant protection is reduced or lost when part or all of the bond between the tooth and sealant is broken. However, clinical studies have shown that teeth that have lost sealants are no more susceptible to tooth decay than teeth that were never sealed.

 

Why can't I just brush and floss?

While brushing and flossing help to remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth, toothbrush bristles often can't reach into the teeth's depressions and grooves. Sealants protect those areas and prevent food and bacteria from getting in.

Cone Beam CT & 3D Imaging System

Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) are a variation of traditional computed tomography (CT)systems. The CBCT systems used by dental professionals rotate around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam.
