What is possible from dentistry has been dramatically upgraded. Below, Dr. Freedman features many of these dental care advances.
Whether it is prevention, overall dental health, restoring one tooth, or a complete smile makeover, Dr. Freedman utilizes many of the new dental technology advancements to improve the comfort and quality of your dental care.
Says Dr Freedman:
“The quality of my dentistry is enhanced by the advanced dental technologies I use. BUT, I will only use it after I am convinced that it is a proven, totally safe procedure for you and is truly better (not worse) than the traditional approaches. I will not experiment on you, especially since I have been so successful with traditional dental approaches. The truth is that a highly skilled, knowledgeable, and caring dentist is much more important than having the flashiest new piece of equipment. Additionally, too often, flashy new dental technology, or "hot" new procedures, turn out to produce worse results.”

MicroDentistry/ Minimally Invasive Dentistry
We find decay as early as possible so that treatment can be done with minimal removal of natural tooth structure. Restorations (fillings) are the smallest possible, esthetically pleasing, and long-lasting.
The DIAGNOdent is a new high tech laser system that aids in early diagnosis of cavities in the complex anatomy of the chewing surfaces of teeth. It utilizes laser light of a defined wavelength to help detect and quantify demineralized tooth substances without x-ray exposure.
The cavitron is an ultrasonic scaler. Power scalers do a more thorough job in less time. This results in significantly decreased scaling time and healthier, cleaner teeth and gums. Hand scalers require repetitive scrapping movements and are restricted to adaptation of only one or two sides of the instrument. In comparison, all four sides of a power scaler can be adapted, because the device moves in an elliptical motion. This comes in handy when removing stain and deposits from behind and between the teeth. Ultrasonic scalers are more effective in removing stain as well. The ultrasonic vibration helps control oral bacteria by breaking down the cell wall of the bacteria. The water used to cool the cavitron then helps to rinse away bacteria, stain and debris.
Air Abrasion is a spray of an air and powder that gently and precisely removes tooth decay. There is no heat, vibration or sound, and often novocaine is unnecessary.
