Digital X-Rays

At East Madison Dental Dumont, our team is focused on making your dental experience as comfortable as possible, including our fast, non-invasive digital X-Rays!

Diagnodent Laser Cavity Screening

Diagnodent is a revolutionary new way for our dentists to find even the smallest areas of tooth decay and cavities. By using the advanced Diagnodent technology, our team at East Madison Dental in Dumont is able to treat small cavities and areas of tooth decay before they become bigger oral health concerns that may require multiple dental procedures.

Diagnodent is comfortable and takes only a few short minutes to scan your entire mouth for cavities and decay. Detecting tooth decay as early as possible helps eliminate the number of costly treatments that you may need down the line and helps treat small problems before they become serious dental cases. Not all cavities are noticeable without the help of the advanced Diagnodent laser — this laser helps locate even the smallest areas of decay.

Intraoral Camera

While X-rays provide valuable information, they don’t always provide a complete view of everything that is going on inside your mouth. With the use of an intraoral camera at East Madison Dental Dumont, our dentists can see every aspect of your teeth and mouth with incredible detail, uncovering cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings, and excessive wear. When we can discover oral problems early on, your treatment is much less invasive and much more cost effective.

Our intraoral camera is small, about the size of the mirror we use during your regular hygiene appointments. You probably wouldn’t even notice we’re using it, except that with the intraoral camera, you have the opportunity to see everything we see on a monitor. This is a great tool to help you become more informed about your dental health, as it gives you a clear understanding of your teeth’s condition, and it allows you to make a more informed decision regarding your treatment options.

Digital Impressions with iTero

When it comes to taking impressions at East Madison Dental Dumont, our patients don't have to worry about goopy, uncomfortable impressions! Using the iTero digital scanner, your dentist can take a highly accurate, goop-free digital impression. The new technology completely eliminates the tray and putty impressions, which many patients find unpleasant and often results in taking multiple rounds of impressions that can be rejected, broken, or misplaced.

The iTero scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.

Through digital software, you'll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iTero scanner can be used for any restorative treatment including crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, bridges, and implants, as well as orthodontic treatments like Invisalign®.

CEREC Same-Day Restorations

CEREC is a technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to the dentist's office. It makes your teeth stronger and more beautiful, all while keeping your teeth looking natural. The restoration is metal-free, and the high-grade ceramic material is compatible with the natural tissue found in your mouth.

During your appointment, you and your doctor will discuss the details of the procedure and your doctor will answer any questions you may have. Your doctor will then use a special 3D imaging camera to take a photo of your tooth. Using CEREC's proprietary software, your dental restoration will be designed according to your tooth's appropriate form and function. Then, CEREC will use diamond burs to create your restoration out of a piece of ceramic. Finally, the ceramic restoration is bonded to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry.

With CEREC, there is no need for a temporary crown, eliminating significant potential discomfort. The strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials of CEREC restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function, and closely match the composition of your natural tooth structure.

Velscope Oral Cancer Screening System

Without proper detection methods, a person may have oral cancer and not even know it. In almost all cases of oral cancer, early detection plays a major role in a patient's chances of survival. By diagnosing and treating oral cancer early, a patient's five year survival rate is 80-90% greater.

At East Madison Dental in Dumont, the VELscope screening system consists of a specialized white light source and viewing scope that make it easier for your doctor to look closely at the tissues inside your mouth and use a special light to identify abnormal tissue.

An abnormal screening does not always indicate the presence cancer. If an abnormal screening occurs, your doctor may schedule a follow-up visit to perform a second scan, to see if the dark spots disappear. Your dentist may also choose to perform a gentle, non-invasive brush biopsy to help determine the cause of the screening result.
