Dr. E. Taylor Meiser and his team use the latest in dental technology to help patients receive high-quality care. At Lighthouse Family Dentistry, we use our dental technology to precisely diagnose and treat patients with various oral health problems in Annapolis, MD. High-definition scans and images, as well as in-office 3-D modeling technology, help our patients to receive efficient and lasting treatment. In addition, Dr. Meiser incorporates digital dental technology into many aspects of your dental care for the best possible patient experience and outcome.
Our Dental Technology in Annapolis, MD
We use these dental technologies to diagnose and treat our patients easily:
We use CEREC technology to create dental crowns, inlays, and onlays. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. We also utilize computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) with CEREC. This means we can take digital dental models of a patient’s teeth to create their cosmetic restoration. As a result, many of our patients can receive customized same-day dental crowns in our office.
3M True Definition Scanner
The 3M True Definition scanner is a great modern alternative to messy, uncomfortable dental impressions. This handheld, intraoral scanner takes digital impressions of the teeth. We use a tablet connected to the handheld scanner to access visuals of the teeth and gums. Because of this, we can easily create dental crowns, dental bridges, veneers, and oral appliances with these visuals. We can also use these impressions to map out orthodontic treatment with ClearCorrect.
Dental Cone-beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scans can create 3-D images of the mouth. With these modern x-rays, we are able to see a full, detailed picture of the teeth. CBCT scans are integral to treatment planning. We often use CBCT scans to plan dental restorations and implant treatment. This option also has significantly less radiation than traditional x-rays.
