Visiting the dentist has been as affected by technology as our daily routines and modern lives. Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci has incorporated some of the latest dental technology into her Pennington, NJ dental practice. Family and Spa Dentistry offers cutting edge technology that provides patients with more accurate diagnoses and procedures that are less painful and more convenient.
Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci uses digital technology in preventive care to enhance her understanding of a patient’s oral health. Digital X-Rays offer benefits for both the dentist and the patient: patients are exposed to less radiation and Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci has immediate digital images that can be used to identify early signs of dental problems before they can be seen in a visual exam. These digital images are also stored in a patient’s permanent record for future use and reference.
Diagnodent technology allows Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci to detect cavities in the early stage, and is especially convenient for younger patients because it is minimally invasive and able to pinpoint cavities before they create a more serious problem requiring a more complex procedure. It is a small, pen-like laser device that enables Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci and her staff to painlessly evaluate all tooth surfaces for small, unnoticeable lesions or spots that may indicate decay.
In addition to screening for early signs of cavities and decay, Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci uses the Velscope to screen her patients for oral cancer. This technology provides fast and reliable feedback on the health of the soft tissues in the mouth, enabling Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci to look for abnormalities that would not be seen by the naked eye. The entire process is painless and takes approximately two minutes- an important two minutes that could save a life!
Family and Spa Dentistry also offers the convenience of same day restorations with CEREC. Using CAD/CAM technology, CEREC is one of the most convenient services that Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci can offer patients who require a porcelain crown or veneer. High quality, custom fit porcelain restorations can be created in her Pennington dental office, usually in approximately one hour. This is especially helpful for patients who have had a crown or tooth suddenly break, leaving an embarrassing gap in their smile.
