Dr. Henrich has adopted the T-Scan® technology into his practice to help with diagnosis and treatment of dental occlusion.
Occlusion is the way the upper and lower teeth meet when you bite. Ideally, all teeth would come into contact with one another at about the same time with equal force on each tooth. An unbalanced occlusion is when the teeth come together at different times and different force is placed on each tooth.
The T-Scan is a diagnostic device that measures your bite dynamics and allows Dr. Henrich to easily see each tooth contact and the force applied by that contact. Common problems related to poor occlusion would be headaches, neck pain, pain in the jaw and uneven wear to the teeth.
Claris i4D Intraoral Camera
Dr. Henrich has the ability to take pictures inside your mouth using an intraoral camera. Dr. Henrich feels that patient education is very important. By using this technology, Dr. Henrich can educate his patients, allowing patients to see and understand the conditions of their mouth. Dr. Henrich uses the award winning Claris i4D Intraoral Camera. It is claimed to be the highest quality intraoral camera in the dental market.
Kavo OP 3D CBCT
With cone beam computed tomography, oral health professionals gain a highly accurate 3-D image of the patient’s anatomy from a single scan. These 3-D images allow the practitioner to better diagnose and understand the true extent of dental disease, and they can provide for more appropriate treatment for patients.
Dr. Henrich uses 3D images in his practice for more precise dental implant planning.
The software allows me and my staff to pre-plan and visualize the surgical process before the actual surgery day. This often will make the surgery less invasive ( using guided surgery ) and make the process more efficient. Most of all it saves my patients time and inconvenience.
3D generated images provide detailed information that 2-D radiographs cannot offer. This greatly aids in precision, which improves the entire implant process.
Gemini 810 + 980 Diode Laser
This is the most powerful soft tissue laser that is currently available to dentists. It is also a dual-wavelength laser, which is important because different molecules absorb laser energy at different rates. Targeting both wavelengths at the same time with this powerful laser leads to faster, smoother, and more efficient cutting. Dr. Henrich can use this laser technology for treating gum problems, removing inflamed or infected soft tissues, performing frenectomies, and much more.
Densah® Bur Technology
This technology has two uses. First, it can cut and drill like a traditional surgical bur. Second, the new design creates a hydrodynamic compression wave inside the jaw bone, which pushes some of the bone tissue in an outward direction. This creates a denser bone layer and expands the boney ridge at the same time. Dr. Henrich uses this technology to prepare a site for a dental implant without resorting to a bone graft. This procedure can create a stronger purchase for the dental implant while preserving more of the original bone tissue.
