We utilize many advanced technologies in our practice in order to give our patients the highest-quality care we can.

This guide gives an overview of some of the technologies and techniques we employ at Dental Excellence. As your Independence, Blue Springs, and Lee’s Summit dentist, we are here to give you great patient care and to provide a variety of advanced dental procedures and technologies.

LANAP

Many American adults suffer from periodontal, or gum disease. This condition can impact more than just a smile. Periodontal disease involves bacterial growth inside of the mouth which can get into the bloodstream and even cause serious health problems.

Removing plaque and tartar is important to control the spread of periodontal disease. A new laser method of doing this has been shown to be especially effective at treating and stopping gum disease. This laser treatment is known as LANAP.

LANAP stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure and it involves using a small dental laser to kill bacteria and get rid of disease tissue around the teeth. Getting rid of the bacteria allows the gums and teeth to heal and seal properly which can prevent future problems. This treatment is effective and far less invasive than many other techniques of treating gum disease.

iTero Dental Imaging

iTero Dental Imaging is a new technology that is a safe, perfor, intraoral scanner. We strive to bring our clients new, advanced technologies to improve patient experience. iTero Dental Imagers capture a 3D image of teeth in seconds. There are many benefits to using this system.

First, it can improve patient experience as they won’t need to bite down on a tray full of dental putty. Second, it is also a precise machine that can capture a brilliant 3D image of teeth.

CEREC®

CEREC is another technology we offer that allows for single-visit tooth restorations. This technology is used to restore damaged teeth and it can be used to complete this process in just one visit to our office. The process helps your teeth become strong, and the material looks natural.

The process include applying a thin layer of power on the tooth and then using a 3D imaging camera to take a picture of the tooth. The CEREC software designs your tooth implant based on the scan of your individual tooth. The CEREC than uses diamond burs to create your specific restoration out of a ceramic material.

Velscope Oral Cancer Detector

We also provide the Velscope Oral Cancer Detector. This technology allows our dentists to closely inspect tissues in your mouth using flounced and high-powered cameras. This combination can show the dentist any tissue abnormalities or lesions that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

CariVu Digital Dental Explorer

We also provide the CariVu Digital Dental Explorer technology. This technology is a powerful transillumination tool that lights up the inside of the tooth while taking a image of the exterior of the tooth. This technology is a modern way to look if a patient has cavities. It is also much more comfortable for the patient than older methods.

Single Tooth Anesthesia: The Wand

This technology is a better way of numbing an individual tooth. The system delivers a computer-controlled flow of anesthesia which leads to a more comfortable numbing experience. This technology is great for when anesthesia is only needed on one tooth.

I-CAT 3D X-Ray Imaging Machine

This digital x-ray technology proceeds sharp, crisp images. This machine was made specifically for dental offices, and it is the most advanced technology available for taking x-rays of a patient's mouth.

Laser Dentistry

At Dental Excellence, we also offer a variety of laser dentistry services that can be used for many procedures.

We offer laser dentistry for cavity removal, gum contouring, and much more.
