Advanced Dental Technology Improves the Treatment Experience
Northland Dental Medicine of Pittsburgh, PA, delivers exceptional dental solutions by combining experience and expertise with the most advanced types of dental technology. As an accomplished dentist and oral surgeon, Dr. Michael E. Corsello recognizes that enhanced technology is a tool that allows us to deliver better, faster, and more successful dental treatments. Our cutting-edge solutions provide better diagnostic images, give patients more efficient restorations, and deliver faster recovery times and more comfortable experiences all around.
Innovations in Dental Technology
We use a range of advanced treatments and equipment to enhance every stage of treatment at our office.
Dr. Corsello invented the Snaptite Smile system to allow for more hygienic and convenient implant-supported full-arch bridges. These restorations are removable for more efficient and convenient maintenance. Snaptite Smile gives patients a more lifelike tooth replacement system than traditional dental bridges, which contributes to a healthier jawbone and the feeling of natural dentition.
3-D Computerized Tomography (CT) Scans
This advanced imaging system allows us to view both the hard and soft tissues of the face and mouth all at once, in finely rendered detail. Just one 360 degree CT scan can replace multiple traditional static x-ray images. CT scans are essential for accurate dental implant placement and other oral surgeries.
Digital radiography is far more efficient than traditional x-rays, as the level of detail is more precise and accurate with digital imaging. This technology offers a greater range of diagnostic functions and the images provided can be enlarged to show greater detail. Digital x-rays are also more comfortable and expose patients to less radiation than traditional imaging.
CEREC allows us to deliver same-day porcelain restorations to patients. Using digital scans and an on-site milling process, CEREC creates customized, unique crowns, bridges, and inlays and onlays to complete your treatment during one appointment. In the past, patients frequently had to wait up to two weeks for a dental laboratory to craft a custom-made crown. With this technology, you can leave our office with a permanent crown in place the same day as treatment.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
This scientifically advanced system allows us to safely and gently use patients’ own blood plasma to support the success of restorative treatments. Your blood contains high levels of growth factors that aid in the body’s regenerative processes, as platelets carry a specific protein that aids in healing and fights off infection. PRP is an excellent resource to make recovery time faster and treatments safer for our patients.
Advanced dental technology has transformed the patient experience for more comfortable, convenient procedures.
The All-on-4 technique allows for a less-invasive implantation process and faster healing time. Using strategic placement, All-on-4 treatment can support a full-arch denture on just four dental implants. This system allows patients who may not qualify for standard implants to experience the benefits of implant-based dentures and more stable, attractive, and comfortable dentures.
This cutting-edge teeth whitening option uses highly specialized bleaching agents to deliver a more efficient whitening product that can address deeper stains more effectively. It also provides customized, form-fitting trays, created through a patented system to ensure no saliva will dilute whiteners. These advances make in-office and at-home KöR treatments far more effective than typical whitening treatments.
