Technology

By using technology to better serve our patients we’ve created most efficient atmosphere to perform our procedures. Read below to discover what Millennium Dental’s technology can do for you.

Odyssey Laser

The Odyssey® Diode Lasers from Ivoclar Vivadent, Inc. represent the latest diode laser technology available for soft tissue modification and preventive care. With unique features such as an automated fiber management system, wireless foot control, and new innovations like uni-dose fiber tips, touch screen, and battery operation, the Odyssey Diode Lasers are the most efficient soft tissue laser in dentistry today.


Comfort Control™ Syringe
The Comfort Control™ Syringe (CCS™) is an electronic, pre-programmed delivery system for local anesthesia that dispenses the anesthetic in a slower, more controlled and more consistent manner than a traditional manual syringe. In short, the Comfort Control™ Syringe can make injections more comfortable for the patient.

Sedation Dentistry
Sedation dentistry allows patients who have a fear of dentists, a low pain threshold, or a resistance to traditional anesthesia to obtain dental care. The patient arrives at the office with a companion to drive them home. Experienced clinical team members will make certain that the patient is relaxed and completely comfortable, and they monitor the patient very closely while he/she is sedated. Many patients feel no discomfort whatsoever during and after treatment, and have little or no memory of the visit.

Global Surgical™ Microscope
Global Microscope is used for observation, examination and diagnosis to maximize virtually every tooth preparation. Patients appreciate the microscope as a tool for communication and accept treatment plans with confidence. Microscopes enhance dentistry.

Digital Radiology
Digital Direct Radiography (DDR) is an alternative to traditional dental radiography, where a digital image is created on a computer as opposed to a traditional image on film. The heart of DDR is a charge-coupled device (CCD) array. This CCD is sensitive to X-rays, like a normal video camera to the light. It captures the image in a similar fashion to film, but it is instantly stored in the computer memory and displayed on the monitor. No film processing is needed and the image is available immediately. Because fewer x-ray photons are needed to form an image on a CCD array than on dental film, DDR typically results in a lower radiation dose than traditional radiography.

Nitrous-Oxide
Nitrous-Oxide, also called laughing gas, is a colorless gas with a pleasant, sweetish odor and taste, which when inhaled produces insensibility to pain and allays the anxiety that many patients may have toward dental treatment. The benefits of nitrous oxide are many, and the risks are few. The gas is administered with a comfortable mask placed over the nose, and the patient is instructed to breathe in through the nose and out through their mouth. The patient begins to feel a pleasant level of sedation in anywhere from 30 seconds to three or four minutes.
