Our dentists in Champaign, IL offer patient-centered technologies that provide better outcomes, superior diagnostics, and more comfortable patient experiences.
In addition to staying current on the latest advances in dentistry, the team at Anderson Dental strives to incorporate the most recent innovations to give patients the best care available.
Check out some of the technologies we use daily in our Champaign, IL dental office.
3-D Cone Beam Imaging
This technology allows for detailed and multi-dimensional images. Our dentists use 3-D cone beam imaging to evaluate your oral structure and to plan your treatments and procedures such as orthodontics, dental implants, and extractions. This digital technology provides accurate and layered images for your dentist to evaluate and diagnose.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns
At Anderson Dental, we use CEREC technology in our dental office. This innovation means you receive a quality dental crown in a single dental appointment while you wait. We take a digital print of your oral structure, feed this information into a computer, and our on-site milling machine starts to work on your quality tooth crown using CAD/CAM technology.
Electric handpieces allow for a quieter and less jarring dental procedure. Our dentists love this technology because it provides a more peaceful dental experience for their patients.
Panoramic x-rays provide landscape images of your oral structure to help your dentist in diagnostics and when planning your dental procedures. They are particularly useful for dental implant planning, jaw joint evaluation, wisdom teeth procedures, and identifying sinuses and other landmarks like cysts.
Once upon a time, dentist’s relied on gooey pastes to take impressions of your smile—some still do. At Anderson Dental, your comfort matters, so we rely on digital impressions to capture safe and accurate models of your smile.
Digital dental records are a safe and convenient method for storing patient information. This environmentally friendly practice means your data is stored digitally and can be called up fast during your dental appointment, or if your dentist wants to compare notes between dental visits.
Digital sensors fit comfortably in your mouth and capture high-quality images for your dentist—images that are resizable for better viewing and diagnostics.
This technology means quality dental x-rays without chemicals or high levels of radiation. Digital x-rays provide superior imaging while significantly reducing exposure. This method is always better for the environment because it requires no harsh chemicals.
Intraoral cameras provide the opportunity for you to see up-close images from inside your mouth. These small pencil-thin cameras are comfortable and allow your dentist to share visual information with you via exam room monitors.
Lasers are less invasive than traditional surgical instruments, promoting less bleeding and faster healing times. Laser dentistry is often used in cosmetic procedures and for periodontal disease treatment.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, or if you simply feel nervous in the dental chair, nitrous oxide provides a safe and effective anesthetic—promoting relaxation and ease. This gas is safe for patients of all ages, including children.
This technology provides faster and easier root canal treatments—clearing away infected pulp gently but more efficiently and preparing your tooth for recovery.
