Our experienced dentist John Griffing, DDS, invests in the latest dental technology to provide you with the safest, most accurate treatment possible. Our goal is to ensure you are provided exemplary care and exceptional results through a combination of skilled dental treatment and advanced techniques. Some of the technologies we utilize at the office of Dr Griffing. include:
CEREC® CAD/CAM Ceramic Restoration
CEREC® is a computer-aided design and ceramic tooth restoration fabrication system. This revolutionary technology, (also known as CAD/CAM), allows Dr. Griffing to restore damaged teeth in minutes with precision-made, natural tooth-colored porcelain dental crowns or other ceramic restorations, while eliminating the inconvenience of impressions, labs, and second visits.
Galileos 3D™ Scanning Technology
The Galileos 3D™ scanning system is one of the most advanced dental diagnostic tools available. This technology allows Dr. Griffing and his dental team to obtain an incredibly thorough view of your mouth from a variety of angles. 3D images display virtually every nook and cranny of your teeth, gums, and jaw, allowing our dentist to provide even more precise treatment for the best possible aesthetic and functional results. Galileos 3D™ is exceptionally useful in dental implant procedures, helping Dr. Griffing create a treatment plan to replace missing teeth with results that bring you the most comfortable and natural feel. This diagnostic technique also uses low doses of radiation, while still yielding an amazing view.
Computerized Digital Radiography (CDR)
More commonly known as “digital X-rays”, computerized digital radiography utilizes an electronic sensor instead of traditional X-ray film, to deliver superior images instantaneously on a monitor . This technology eliminates the need for developing chemicals that are harmful to the environment. Most importantly, CDR uses 90% less radiation than conventional film X-rays. For your convenience, digital X-rays are sent electronically to your insurance provider, thus expediting claims processing and reducing treatment delays.
Intraoral cameras allow our dental team to more easily identify and explain problems they detect in your teeth and gums. A small camera placed in your mouth creates images on a computer screen that you and our dentist can view together, giving you a clear image of what’s going on in your mouth. Intraoral cameras enhance communication between you and Dr. Griffing about the issues affecting your teeth and the treatment options that may be most beneficial to your needs.
