Dentistry by Design is equipped with Sterisil Straw V2, a device that works 365 days per year to continuously maintain sterile unit water lines.
At Dentistry by Design, we believe the quality of the water being used is of the utmost importance. Scientific evidence shows that water used routinely in Dental Offices may be heavily contaminated with microorganisms which live and multiply in the water lines and tubing. Microbial contamination might occur in dental offices as well, if strict safety measures are not taken. Immunocompromised patients, including patients with HIV/AIDS, diabetes, transplant recipients, chemotherapy patients or weakened immune system patients are at a higher risk due to any contamination. To ensure the effectiveness of the dental unit waterline sterilizing regimen, our office undergoes monthly testing, using medical labs. Our water system is equipped with the Sterisil V2. This is a non-toxic, non-corrosive device placed in our water which has a built in shock treatment which releases automatically to kill preexisting bacteria. The Sterisil V2 meets BMP compliance and does not contain oxidizers, such as iodine and chlorine, which have shown to release mercury into dental waste water. The health and safety of our patients is our top priority.
probably had a dentist check your "bite" to see if your teeth come
together properly. Your "occlusion" was checked by having you bring your
teeth together on a piece of carbon paper.
When your teeth do not meet as they should, pain in your muscles and joints is often the result. An improper meshing of your bite can also lead to small fractures in teeth and bruxism (grinding of your teeth while you sleep).
Re-alignment of your bite can get very complicated, as even a small imbalance can cause problems. Dr. Ionescu is one of the first dentists in the country to relieve this type of pain and discomfort with Tekscan™. This state-of-the-art technology analyzes your malocclusion with computerized accuracy to ensure all the related problems can be addressed.
You will be pleased how Dr. Ionescu works together with each patient to make sure your decisions are fully informed. The technology that makes this possible is the intra-oral camera. This miniature video camera displays an accurate and close-up image of the interior of your mouth. It lets you see what problems need attention and what teeth are in good shape. Patients love how this works!
We never take any risks when it comes to your good health. You can be assured all the instruments we use during your treatment are either discarded after a single use or sterilized. Re-usable instruments are sterilized in an autoclave that is monitored by an outside lab. This ensures that the highest levels of cleanliness are maintained for your safety.
With digital X-rays, we can take images of your teeth with a digital sensor that downloads them into our computer, where they are immediately available. We can also take a complete panoramic image of your upper and lower dental arches in just one image. There is no waiting time with this technology, with much less radiation emitted – 75% less! And there are no polluting chemicals used in the process.
Laser technology is a safe and effective approach for many dental treatments. We feature the Picasso laser that is virtually painless and produces results that are nearly miraculous. Most treatments that needed scalpels and incisions are now completed with the laser with virtually no discomfort during or after the procedure. With this FDA-approved Picasso laser, we can re-contour inflamed tissue areas and treat uneven gum lines, and even provide relief from painful canker sores and mouth ulcers instantly.
Nothing beats an easier, more comfortable dental visit. If you have questions about the latest dental technology, give us a call today at (916) 685-4662.
