At Innovo Dental & Implant Studio, it won’t take our patients long to realize just how passionate Dr. Rattan is about keeping up-to-date with the latest tools, materials, and technologies in the oral healthcare field. He even travels all around the world to explore brand-new innovations! Here in Tracy, we utilize revolutionary tools throughout each stage of the treatment process in order to elevate your care experience, leading to greater comfort, maximized precision, and other valuable benefits. Keep reading below to learn more about some of these specific technologies or contact us today in Tracy if you’re ready to visit in -person.
Many patients are simply left in the dark when it comes to the inner workings of their smile. However, Dr. Rattan greatly values education and wants to help you feel like a fully informed partner in the oral healthcare journey. That’s why he regularly uses intraoral cameras, which capture high-resolution photography of the dental structures and transfers them to a nearby monitor for easy viewing. With the help of this visual aid, he can more clearly point out concerns and explain recommended treatments.
Digital radiography offers outstanding advantages when compared to the traditional film X-ray system. For instance, darkrooms and hazardous chemicals are no longer necessary; the development process happens in seconds, and the digital images can even be magnified and color-coded to help patients better understand what they’re seeing on the screen. Better yet, radiation exposure is dramatically minimized by up to 80%, which makes the entire diagnostic process much safer for our patients and families here in Tracy.
While digital X-rays provide an enormous amount of important insight into dental health, their overall scope can be a little limited when planning advanced treatments like root canal therapy and dental implant placement. That’s where our revolutionary Cone Beam comes in. This state-of-the-art technology captures comprehensive, three-dimensional imaging of the patient’s teeth, jaw, skull, and even small bodily details like facial nerves with outstanding clarity. With this additional insight, Dr. Rattan can confidently perform a wide array of procedures while leaving nothing to chance.
Our team considers digital impressions a big improvement over the traditional process – after all, no one likes sitting still for minutes on end with a big mouthful of uncomfortable putty! Now, a series of no-contact scans is all it takes to create an exceptionally accurate model of certain teeth that can be used to create highly custom dental restorations, oral appliances, Invisalign clear aligners, and more. This advanced approach minimizes the risk of time-consuming retakes while helping patients feel much more at ease.
Caring for the gums requires a careful touch, and soft tissue lasers are well-suited to providing this type of treatment in a much more precise and comfortable way than ever before here at Innovo Dental & Implant Studio. This technology’s focused beam can eliminate infectious bacteria/tissue while providing instant sterilization that minimizes bleeding and swelling. The entire process is so smooth that most patients don’t even require any local anesthesia!
Are you regularly experiencing significant jaw pain or headaches? TMJ disorder may be to blame. This health problem occurs when the temporomandibular joints (which are responsible for helping you chew and speak) experience dysfunction or strain for a variety of different reasons. Thankfully, Dr. Rattan offers several therapy options right here in-office, including occlusal adjustment to correct misaligned bites and 3D-printed occlusal splints that can reposition the resting jaw into a more proper, comfortable position. Our goal is to provide long-term relief!
If a patient has been diagnosed with mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and cannot achieve relief with traditional CPAP treatment, it may be time to visit your dental office. Dr. Rattan offers custom oral appliance therapy here in Tracy that can help comfortably reposition the jaw and/or tongue throughout the night to prevent the core cause of this harmful condition: unconscious airway blockage.
Many patients struggle with anxiety surrounding dental care, from mild cases of frazzled nerves to full-blown dental phobia that results in missed appointments and slowly worsening oral health. At Innovo Dental & Implant Studio, your comfort is one of our top priorities, and if the friendly nature of our team members isn’t enough to help you become relaxed, sedation dentistry is also available. Dr. Rattan offers both nitrous oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) and oral conscious sedation to create a more soothing environment for those in need.
