Advanced Technology

Precision Dentistry

When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Bassiri and her staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.

Our practice uses high power loupes to enhance the precision of patient care.

Dentistry is micro-surgery. Using magnified loupes in addition to LED dental lights enable us to create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just can’t fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.

In addition to allowing precise, close-up work, the light directs a beam of light directly on the teeth, minimizing glare for you.

Digital Imaging

Dr. Bassiri chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.

Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Dr. Bassiri utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better, especially between the teeth.

Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.

Schick Digital X-Rays:

Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.  The system utilizes detectors that are connected to the computer, resulting in the radiographs appearing on the screen within 15 seconds of their being taken.  Within seconds, Dr. Bassiri can diagnose and share with you any changes going on with your teeth. 

Dr. Bassiri has invested in Nomad Pro 2- handheld X-ray System due the following benefits:

  • Operator can stay with patient during procedure – no need to leave the room 
  • Safe to use for patient as well as operator- very low dose
  • Clear images- reduces retakes by 50% compared to conventional x-rays
  • Take a radiograph anytime during procedures
  • Perfect for use with sedated patients, children, geriatric or special needs
  • Ideal for general dentistry and humanitarian work

Dr. Bassiri also uses SIRONA ORTHOPHOS XG 3 for panoramic x-ray imaging.  This digital x-ray unit delivers the best image quality at the lowest dose and brings the perfect workflow in our practice.  Thanks to sophisticated technology, ORTHOPHOS XG units provide maximum image information. Special programs reduce the radiation dose for our patients and provide the right x-ray image for fast and accurate diagnosis.

Intraoral Camera

Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.

Dr. Bassiri utilizes intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. A professional camera may also be used to take before and after full-shot and profile photos.  

An intraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!  

Intra oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments, allowing Dr. Bassiri to monitor and track the health of your teeth and oral cavity. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.

Flat Screen Monitor

We are all about patient comfort at Fusion Dental Care. In each of our treatment rooms you will find a flat screen tv located in a position that you can continue to watch your favorite show even while laying back.  This will also allow us to present your X-rays, clinical photos and treatment options to help you make the most informed decision regarding your oral health.
