Dr. Tisoncik has
incorporated the GALILEOS™ 3D Imaging system that combines high image resolution with three-dimensional scans of dental structures with
patient safety. GALILEOS technology has had a long history with the medical community. Unlike a medical CT scan, GALILEOS offers unparalleled
imaging without the high dosage of radiation seen in traditional scans.
GALILEOS 3D utilizes an integrated face scanner. This means we can show you, using your own face and bone structure, how you will look after treatment. You can see for yourself how suggested dental procedures will transform your smile! Remove “best guess” dentistry and make more informed, confident decisions about your dental care.
Oral cancer takes the life of an American each hour, and this rate has not changed for decades. However, the good news is that the cure rate is 90% if caught early. Dr. Tisoncik is pleased to offer his patients a quick, easy and effective screening. VELscope is the latest technology approved by the FDA to detect cancerous tissue. Using a special light, any suspicious areas are easily visible.
Introducing digital X-ray technology. This technology has a 75% reduction in radiation as compared to traditional film X-rays. It is quick, easy, and, with our panoramic imager, allows for a clear image of both the upper and lower jaws in one shot. The image is also downloaded to our computer, which allows for immediate viewing. There is no chemical waste produced like the older X-rays, which is good news for the environment.
Your smile may have never felt so clean as when we remove deposits of plaque and tartar using the Piezo Scaler™. This device produces high-frequency vibrations that can remove deposits on your teeth and under the gums faster than a typical scaling instrument. It is also patient friendly, with little to no discomfort.
Using computer technology, we can show you how your teeth will look before treatment begins. Cosmetic imaging allows us to visualize how gums and teeth can be added, replaced, shaped, or lightened for your new smile. It is exciting to see how your new smile will look even before treatment has started.
Patients will always have questions about the procedures they need. We can provide education that answers those questions with the CAESY information program. It provides thorough explanations on every aspect of dental care – from routine cleanings and restorations to gum disease treatments and cosmetic solutions and more. You will love how it helps you understand everything you need to know before treatment.
Dr. Tisoncik uses a laser to effectively arrest gum disease without surgery. It is minimally invasive and virtually painless, and the results are very positive. He has treated many cases of gum disease without the need for surgery. This laser is FDA approved and safe. It can also help regenerate bone mass that has been lost from gum disease.
About 5 million teeth are knocked out each year while participating in sports. This can be prevented with the use of custom-made mouthguards. Discount store mouthguards do not protect or fit as well. They can also make it difficult to breathe while playing sports. The American Dental Association recommends custom-made mouthguards for the following sports: football, acrobatics, squash, basketball, lacrosse, boxing, weight lifting, gymnastics, skiing, ice hockey, martial arts, racquetball, shotputting, skateboarding, skydiving, soccer, surfing, volleyball, water polo, and wrestling.
We like to include patients when making decisions about their dental work. With the use of the intra-oral camera, a tiny video camera, we will provide a close-up picture of the inside of your mouth. You will then be able to see for yourself what areas need attention. You will love how well this works!
We want you to be confident that we take instrument sterilization seriously. After each use, instruments are sanitized using an autoclave, which is monitored for safety and cleanliness by an independent lab. We also use single-use tools for certain procedures. We do not take chances when it comes to your health.
Everyone loves an easy, comfortable dental visit. If you have any questions about the technology we offer, give us a call today at (708) 599-2929.
