Wireless IntraOral Camera - Einstein Jr.

The digital wireless IntrOral Camera is a patient favorite at Riverbend Dental Center, because it allows patients to see what Dr. Schmidt is seeing. In just seconds, this small digital device snaps high resolution images of the patient's gums and teeth, and projects them on to the flat screen TV inside the patient's own treatment room. From here, Dr. Schmidt can educate the patient about what's going on inside the mouth, and let the patient see why certain a certain treatment or procedure may be necessary. The IntraOral device is included in every patient's comprehensive dental evaluation.

3D Diagnostics/Kodak 9000 Extraoral Imaging System

The Kodak 9000 3D System is an innovative, state-of-the-art system that lets Dr. Schmidt obtain low-dose, high resolution, three-dimensional (3D) images, as well as panoramic and cephalometric ones, at an affordable price. This technology gives Dr. Schmidt unprecedented detail and angles of view, and can help in diagnosing everything from TMJ to the best, precise placement of implants.

Dr. Schmidt says this type of cone beam imaging that's now available in dentistry, means a complete transformation in how dentists are able to diagnose and treat patients. While most facilities in the Metro Area are not equipped with this technology, Dr. Schmidt says this type of next generation technology means he can diagnose cases from 3-d imaging, and allows him to see things that regular X-rays are not capable of. The panorex takes a 360 degree view of the patient's entire head, including the teeth, bones, and sinuses. The panorex can detect a wide range of problems that previously could not be detected during routine exams, such as infections, sinus issues, and structural problems. Dr. Schmidt says this machine has also become a critical part of the implant placement process, allowing him greater precision and accuracy.

Ultrasonic Cleaning

Riverbend Dental Center's Ultrasonic Cleaning device, the Cavitron, is considered the market leader in ultrasonic dental cleaning technology. This high tech device actually uses high frequency sound waves to clean the teeth and build up which can lead to those dreaded cavities and even tooth loss. Dr. Schmidt says think of the Cavitron as a pressure washer for your teeth to remove tarter, which actually contains bacteria and plaque trapped inside. Ultrasonic cleaning is also a much more effective way to also remove stains and control oral bacteria by breaking down the cell wall of the bacteria. The Cavitron can be used for basic preventative care, or to treat more advanced problems with the teeth and gums as well. Most patients report that the ultrasonic cleansing experience is pain free, and much faster than the old traditional scraping method which required repetitive scraping movements and a lot more time in the treatment chair.
