Our office uses modern, state-of-the-art technology to enhance patient comfort and to help you get the smile you deserve!
The personal approach and state-of-the-art technology that forms the cornerstone of Five Star Dentists is changing the way patients view dentistry.
Our doctors are trained and certified to use this revolutionizing technology to provide you treatments with higher standard of care, with better results than those using traditional methods, faster healing times, and with less overall discomfort.
Dental x-rays can now be taken using sensors that transmit the image directly into a computer monitor. This larger image helps the patient understand the doctor's explanations more easily and enables the doctor to "zoom in" on a specific area of the tooth. An important advantage to this new technology is that it reduces the amount of radiation by 90%. Digital x-rays are also faster. The digital image only takes a minute or two to appear in the monitor. In addition, this new technology is friendly to the environment since no chemicals are needed for developing the image.
3D Cone Beam CT Imaging
The breakthrough technology in digital dentistry, 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) imaging, is now available at Five Star Dentists, Fresno location. We are excited to have successfully integrated our digital radiography suites with the new ORTHOPHOS XG 3D system from Sirona. This hybrid system offer several enhanced 2D imaging capabilities for our patients. The 3D function increases diagnostic accuracy for all of our routined dentistry needs and especially for our dental implants and dental surgical procedures.
The DIAGNOdent is a new high tech laser system that aids in early diagnosis of cavities in the complex anatomy of the chewing surfaces of teeth. It utilizes laser light of a defined wavelength to help detect and quantify demineralized tooth substances without x-ray exposure.
Our intraoral camera uses a tiny fiber-optic wand to easily take vivid photographs of the inside of your mouth. This allows us to let you see what we see.
For In-Office bleaching, we utilize the advanced Zoom! light-activated process. Learn more.
Our treatment areas and our waiting room are equipped with state-of-the-art patient-education DVD systems. If you are uncertain about a particular procedure, we will be happy to play the DVD video segment for you.
