State-of-the-Art Dental Technology

Dentistry is constantly changing as technological advancement is becoming a norm worldwide. Dentists have now figured out how to implement modern technologies in traditional dentistry, such as Artificial Intelligence, 3D printing, and laser technology.

Modern dental technology is now a necessity in dentistry. For example, having 3D digital X-ray machines is the newest way to provide modernized dental care. Digital X-rays produce up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays and employ advanced imaging systems.

Our high-quality dental machinery allows our dentists to provide quick and comfortable care to our patients. We can also give improved advice on best maintaining good oral health.

At Hubbard Dental, we commit to using the most up-to-date technology during dental procedures. Using the newest dental technologies in our office, we can promise that our Pinehurst, NC, dentists provide the most targeted preventive care to our patients.

Technologies at Hubbard Dental include:

  • THOR Laser
  • SOLEA Laser
  • CBCT (3D X-rays)
  • DIAGNOdent
  • Intraoral Cameras

THOR laser

Our office uses the THOR laser for healing. It is a photobiomodulation laser that improves post-procedure tissue repair and helps to reduce pain and inflammation during dental treatment. It also allows Hubbard Dental to provide care without medication. 

We use the THOR laser primarily for TMJ issues, postoperative healing, dentinal hypersensitivity, oral lesions, and more. In addition, the THOR laser is a fantastic option for a more comfortable dental experience if you are nervous about dental tools.

SOLEA laser 

The SOLEA laser is different from the THOR laser because we use it on hard and soft tissue. Not only does it make very little noise, but it also eliminates the need for needles or anesthesia during dental treatments. This is an excellent option for children or those afraid of dental tools. 

The SOLEA laser allows us to provide a variety of treatments, from helping to reduce snoring to eliminating drills for fillings. We can even use it to remove fibromas or mucoceles. In addition, the laser puts your tooth to sleep so that you will experience a painless dental procedure. 

CBCT (3D X-rays) 

3D X-rays are the latest in dental technology. We use the CBCT system to create high-quality 3D impressions of your smile. CBCT allows us to diagnose oral health problems better. 

We also use 3D X-rays to see canals before root canal therapy, analyze bone for implant placement, and create a more accurate diagnosis for pathology.

Intraoral Scanner

Many dentists take gooey, messy impressions of the mouth to help develop personalized mouthpieces. These impressions mimic the shape of your mouth and bite to create pieces that replace teeth (such as bridges or crowns). 

We use our intraoral scanner to digitally capture these areas of a patient’s mouth, avoiding sticky molds for dental impressions. So all of the imaging that we take of your mouth is not only 3D but also specific to the shape of your smile.

The intraoral scanner allows us to perform fully computerized mouth imaging. We then transfer these images to our lab instantaneously, where they fabricate: 

By using the intraoral scanner, we can speed up getting dental replacement pieces to then place them as quickly as possible. 

DIAGNOdent Laser

We use the DIAGNOdent laser during routine checkups to help diagnose cavities in the mouth. Due to the precision of the DIAGNOdent laser, we can identify cavities and stop them before they become a more significant and more painful problem. 

Intraoral Cameras 

During many procedures at our dental office, we use an intraoral camera to see clear pictures of what we are doing in their mouths. 

Despite this considerable benefit to you, it’s also beneficial to us! We use the intraoral camera to access areas of your mouth that are difficult to see, and this helps us make sure we are giving you a thorough checkup every time you visit the office.
