At Dr. Joe Dentistry, we’re dedicated to continuing education and investing in the latest treatments and technologies. We are always expanding our knowledge and bringing the most advanced solutions back home to our family of patients in Torrance. Advances in technology have transformed the way we do dentistry – treatments that used to be painful, invasive, and required multiple appointments can now be completed quickly and comfortably in a single visit.
We practice a conservative approach to dentistry, minimizing the use of surgery, scalpels and sutures, and trying to preserve healthy tissue and teeth for as long as possible. That’s why we’ve invested in revolutionary laser technology that allows us to perform many procedures without sharp tools, cutting, scraping, or sewing.
High-tech laser technology targets diseased tissue, while leaving healthy tissue intact. We can perform laser cleanings, laser periodontal therapy, and many other soft tissue procedures in a way that’s more conservative and comfortable for you. Laser dentistry provides faster recovery and better results than traditional methods, and is a huge sigh of relief for patients who fear the dentist.
Traditionally, having a tooth restored would require messy impressions, a temporary, multiple injections and multiple appointments. Thankfully, advanced same day technology shrinks the entire process down into a single piece of same day, chairside equipment. We can create inlays, onlays, crowns, veneers, and some bridges with our same day technology.
Our E4D milling machine allows us to take quick and easy digital impressions that are converted into precise 3D digital models. After carefully selecting a block of ceramic that perfectly matches your exact tooth shade and translucency, your new restoration is created right there on the spot, and can be permanently secured the same day.
With advances in technology, gone are the days of relying on the magic of sight alone to detect and diagnose dental problems. The mouth can be a hard place to get an up-close-and-personal look into, but our intraoral camera technology makes it simple.
We use tiny digital cameras for maximum magnification that allow us to see every nook and cranny of your mouth. The images are shown on the screen so we understand exactly what’s going on in your mouth for earlier detection of disease and decay. Intraoral cameras also allow you to see what we see, so you can rest assured you know exactly what we’re talking about, so you can better understand your oral health and treatment needs.
Digital x-rays have been a major advancement in modern medicine and dentistry. Digital x-rays are much safer than traditional x-rays, as they produce up to 90% less radiation exposure. Digital x-rays are also more convenient as they can be taken in a matter of moments and viewed right from the dental chair.
With traditional x-rays, you would have to sit perfectly still for a couple of minutes to get the most accurate images. If you moved, you would have to start all over. Digital x-rays are taken quickly for the most accurate and most in-depth image, so we can detect cavities and other issues sooner.
