We're proud of our state-of-the-art technology because it allows us to provide the highest quality dental care available. Updated technology also makes our work more streamlined and efficient, which means you can spend less time at the dentist and more time enjoying activities you love.
ARES Take Home Sleep Test
The Apnea Risk Evaluation System, or ARES take-home sleep test, is the latest development in sleep-related breathing monitoring.
This device allows us to conduct a sleep test at your home, rather than you going to a sleep clinic for a sleep study. It is FDA approved for sleep studies and was designed to be comfortable, light-weight, and wireless.
Once a patient takes the ARES device home for a sleep study (and sleeps while monitored), a sleep physician reads and interpreters the results and will provide a diagnosis of any sleep-related breathing disorders.
One-visit CEREC crowns are fabricated right here in our Metairie dental office using state-of-the-art technology. We start by preparing your tooth for the new crown, and then we use specialized equipment to take an image of your tooth.
This image is put into a computer program that allows us to view a model of your tooth and use this information to create your new crown. Next, your new CEREC crown is created in our in-house lab utilizing a block of porcelain and the model of your tooth.
Finally, the crown is adjusted to fit securely in your mouth.
Using digital x-rays, we can view your teeth and gums in incredible detail—allowing us to identify and detect cavities and any abnormal dental issues. In some respects, the process for taking digital x-rays is not all that different from film x-rays. However, digital imaging is reliable, efficient, comfortable, and emits less radiation than traditional x-rays.
Rather than taking pictures of your teeth using film, we utilize comfortable digital sensors. The image is then viewed on a monitor so our patients can see what the dentist sees. Using digital x-rays allows us to see the tiniest problems before they become more serious and costly to fix.
In-House Dental Lab
We are proud to offer our patients the convenience of an in-house dental lab.
Most restorations are created right here on our premises, which gives us a lot more control over the process. Since our skilled technician is always available, we have the benefit of being able to consult with him directly about the details of your case. You will be able to provide input directly about your goals and desires so that the results are always exactly what you expect.
The Isolite mouthpiece system is located in all of our operatories to help increase patient comfort. This system acts as a mouth-prop, so you do not have to hold your mouth open; a suction, so you do not have to swallow or taste the ongoing procedure and reduces humidity; and it protects your throat, cheeks, and tongue from sharp instruments.
This innovative system keeps the field we are working in dry and sterile for optimum dentistry, and it also makes the procedure more comfortable for you!
SonicFill composite is one of the newest tooth-colored fillings on the market! This superior filling material can fill large fillings in one step.
The system uses sonic activation to enable the rapid flow of the tooth-colored filling, resulting in superior adaptation of the material to the tooth.
Our rooms are equipped with flat-screen televisions.
Our televisions play informative dental videos throughout your procedure to educate you on any recommended dental treatment. We are also able to review pictures and radiographs directly with patients on television screens.
Intra Oral Cameras
We use intraoral cameras to take necessary photographs to review any dental findings with patients.
These small cameras fit in your mouth so we can take photographs of teeth and any other surrounding tissue. The pictures help a patient see precisely what is going on in the mouth! We can show you cracks that are in your teeth, any broken teeth, lesions in your mouth—the possibilities are endless!
Our operatories, as well as the front desk, are equipped with computers.
We use computers to help show patients recommended treatments, radiographs, intraoral photographs as well as numerous other necessary tasks throughout the day.
