Drs. Stiffle and Wojno stay on the forefront of new dental technology through their dedication to their own continuing educations. The ATDC team is skilled in these advances including digital x-rays, impressions, scans, photographs, laser, Invisalign, and whitening treatments. Our CAD/CAM instrument allows us to produce porcelain restorations during your appointment, thereby eliminating the need for temporaries and reducing your time in our office. A consultation with Drs. Stiffle or Wojno presents how these technologies benefit you.

Sirona® XG-3D Cone Beam Scanner 

Cone Beam technology provides a digital tomographic 3D view of the patient’s area of interest.  A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional.  With Cone Beam systems the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas.  The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology.  This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago.

Sirona® Cerec Omnicam CAD/CAM Dentistry 

Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Milling (CAM) offer advanced treatment options with less waiting time for a restoration. Depending on the procedure(s) being performed, your dental restoration(s) may be able to be placed on the same day or next day instead of the usual wait of one to two weeks or more.  Using a special scanner, the office can take a digital impression without using traditional trays, improving patient comfort.  The restoration(s) is then designed using advanced computer 3D technology that can analyze the interaction of the new restoration with your other teeth.  A new crown can be milled out of a solid piece of tooth-colored composite material providing strength that may surpass that of many crowns produced in a dental lab.  Advancements in materials and technology have provided many options for great restorations that can both look great, provide superior strength compared to other restorations, and reduce the need for multiple visits to the office.

Sirona® Schick 33 Digital X-ray 

Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays.  The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment.  Digital x-rays are instant, so there is no longer a need to develop the film.  Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care.  It’s also a very green technology.  By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste, digital x-rays are better for both the patient and the environment!

Schick® USB Cam 2 Digital Intraoral Cameras 

An intraoral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and dentist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time.  With an intraoral camera, patients are able to better understand what is happening and review the status of their oral health.

Biolase® Advanced Lasers 

Lasers are used for periodontal (gum) surgeries, TMJ pain, gingivectomy (smile line correction), biopsies and tumor removal and whitening.  These lasers are more efficient, cause less discomfort, promote a faster healing time, and decrease the risk of infection, providing a better outcome.

Digital Flat Screen Monitors 

These monitors are found next to every patient chair. Patients can view their dental x-rays when speaking to the doctor about the findings for a better understanding of their oral health.

Wi-Fi 

Our office offers free Wi-Fi for our patients use while visiting our office.
