Technology

It seems that nearly every day, we see innovative advances in dental technology, treatments, and materials. At Hollywood Smile Dental, Dr. Yefim Khanimov and our team make it a point to stay current with any updates in dentistry that benefit you.

We invest in your oral health by investing in state-of-the-art technology for our practice to make your dental treatment more comfortable and efficient than ever before. If you avoided dental visits in the past because of an uncomfortable experience, we encourage you to make an appointment to visit us. With our state-of-the-art technology, even patients who are fearful of seeing a dentist have found that their visits with us are faster and more comfortable.

Please take a moment to browse through and learn more about the dental technology we offer. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to call our office.

Digital X-Rays

Dental x-rays are an essential diagnostic and preventive tool because they allow us to view highly detailed images of your teeth, bone, and surrounding soft tissue.

With x-rays, cavities are visible in their earliest stages when they are still easy to treat. But many patients today are understandably concerned about radiation exposure, so we have invested in state-of-the-art digital x-rays that minimize your exposure by as much as 80%.

Digital x-rays use flat electronic sensors instead of bulky x-ray film, and in just a few moments, we can review the images together on a computer monitor so you can see exactly what the problem is and why treatment is necessary.

In addition to being very safe, digital x-rays are stored on our secure network for quick access as needed for reviewing your history. Since we store the images digitally, they can be sent directly to a specialist or your insurance company. And since we don’t use any chemicals to process digital images, they are safer for the environment than film x-rays.

TVs in Treatment Rooms

We understand that many of our patients would rather be almost anywhere else than sitting in a dental chair. But your oral health is important, so we offer you escape by providing televisions in our treatment rooms.

We will get you settled in with a pillow and blanket and offer you noise-canceling headphones that drown out background noises. When you are comfortable, we will help you choose your favorite TV show so you can relax while we provide you with high-quality treatment.

Rotary Endodontics

Like many people, you may feel anxious when you learn that you need root canal treatment. But you will be pleased to know that dental technology like rotary endodontics makes your treatment stress-free and comfortable.

Rotary endodontics allow Dr. Khanimov to perform gentle root canals that are more efficient than traditional tools, resulting in less time in the dental chair for you. With rotary endodontics, we can also deliver better long-term solutions because they allow us to ensure the canals are completely clean and free of infection.

Soft Tissue Laser

Treatment with lasers benefits people who are anxious about dental procedures because it’s faster, safer, and more conservative than traditional dental techniques. Using lasers, we can perform a wide variety of procedures comfortably, efficiently, and with faster healing times and better results.

We use dental lasers for cosmetic purposes like gum contouring or crown lengthening. Laser treatment is also effective for eliminating canker sores and even preventing their recurrence over time. In the case of treatment for advanced periodontal disease, our soft tissue laser treatment is comfortable and efficient. Since lasers are less invasive than traditional methods, you will experience pain-free treatment!

Intraoral Cameras

We believe that it is important for you to be involved in making decisions about your dental treatment so that we can help you achieve your oral health goals. An intraoral camera is specifically designed and adjusted for dentistry and is a valuable diagnostic and patient education tool.

The camera allows us to share immediate detailed images of your teeth so that you see what we see in real-time. With this information, we can better explain to you the reason for treatments and discuss your options. The intraoral camera gives our team greater visual clarity, making diagnosis easier and more accurate.

VELScope Cancer Detection

At Hollywood Smile Dental, we are concerned with anything that affects your mouth. For this reason, we have invested in a VELscope, an oral cancer detection technology, for our practice. VELScope lights up the inside of your mouth with a blue light that helps us visualize abnormal oral tissue, such as tissues that are potentially cancerous or pre-cancerous.

With routine screenings, oral cancer isn't hard to detect or diagnose. Sadly, fatalities are high because the disease is often not diagnosed until late in its development. However, with early detection using VELScope, the 5-year survival rate is close to 90%.

DentalVibe

We understand that dental visits are intimidating for many people. That is why we do everything possible to provide your family with personalized care that allows you to relax and receive the critical treatment you need.

One way we do this is by using technology like the DentalVibe that does away with the discomfort and anxiety associated with oral injections. The device works by emitting vibrations that block sensations of pain, making the process so comfortable that many patients don’t realize they have had the injection!

Since you don’t have to worry about discomfort, your anxiety level should be significantly reduced. DentalVibe is also completely safe for use in children, and parents appreciate the level of comfort we’re able to provide.
