To provide you with high-quality, comfortable and efficient treatment, Dr. Greenberg takes full advantage of the latest and most advanced technology. You can read about some of the equipment we use to care for your teeth and gums below.
Ultrasonic Surgery System
Dr. Greenberg uses a Piezosurgery® Touch to precisely cut bone without affecting the soft tissues, such as gums, membranes and nerve tissue. This surgical device uses a patented three-dimensional ultrasonic vibration which is precisely targeted to only cut bone. It’s ideal for sensitive areas or where the bone is thin.
The result is a quiet, less invasive surgical procedure that results in faster healing time and less post-operative discomfort.
Surgical microscopes provide a highly magnified view of your mouth. This allows Dr. Greenberg to use smaller instrumentation, lasers and ultrasonic technology for more precise and gentler treatment. We were one of the first offices in the country to use a surgical microscope to perform periodontal treatment.
High-speed digital X-rays use 80% less radiation than film X-rays, and allow Dr. Greenberg to examine fine details such as early stages of bone loss and disease. Digital X-rays can be displayed on a monitor so that we can show our patients any problem areas and discuss treatment options.
Dental Laser for gentle and precise treatment
Dr. Greenberg uses the WaterLase MD laser for a variety of periodontal treatments. These include gentle and effective gum disease treatment, gum recountouring, removal of excess gum tissue, desensitize teeth and oral lesions, removal of mouth ulcers, tumor removal, and precision cutting of bone.
The laser beam precisely targets the relevant area, leaving all other tissues intact. This reduces or eliminates suturing and reduces swelling, bleeding and post-treatment discomfort. It also speeds healing. Use of a laser for simple procedures can eliminate the need for anesthesia.
High-Tech Digital Imaging
Dr. Greenberg uses a Planmeca Cone Beam 3D CT scanner to obtain a comprehensive view of your teeth and jaw. The scanner takes a series of high-resolution X-ray images in a 360 degree circle around your head. These images are then computer-processed into 3D images of your teeth, jaws and related anatomy that can be viewed from any angle and magnified as desired.
Dr. Greenberg uses these images to precisely plan the placement of your dental implants and to determine ahead of time if any bone grafting will be needed. He also uses this information to fabricate a surgical guide, a template that fits over your dental arch and marks exactly where the implant is to be placed. Dr. Greenberg uses these guides to guarantee accurate and stable placement.
Our cone beam 3D CT scanner uses only a small percentage of the radiation used by conventional CT scanners.
Computerized Periodontal Charting
Chart It™ is a software program used for tracking and compiling information gathered during periodontal exams.
Chart It™ tracks the pocket depths between your teeth and gums. The information is fed directly into the charting system for precise, efficient evaluation.
Ultrasonic Scaler for gentle, effective cleanings
Dr. Greenberg uses an ultrasonic scaler to quickly and painlessly remove hardened plaque and stains from the surface of your teeth and below your gum line. Ultrasonic scalers use high-frequency sound waves to remove buildup without harming your teeth.
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
PRF is used to expedite healing when placing implants, grafting bone or gum tissue and when performing sinus lifts or ridge augmentation. A small sample of your own blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red blood cells.
The Wand® Computerized Anesthetic Delivery System for gentle injections
The Wand delivers a computer-regulated flow of anesthetic for consistent, accurate injections. Most people who have experienced pain when receiving injections do so because the fluid was released too quickly. The slow, steady flow of The Wand means there is little to no discomfort. Dr. Greenberg also uses a topical anesthetic to numb the location of the injection.
