"I'm amazed at how much this guy knows. He's an expert in ozone therapy and minimally invasive dentistry and preventative which basically means that if you want the best chance to have the least amount of dentistry done, you need to see him. And if you so happen to need dental work, he does it all. Same day crowns, implants, digital X-rays, ozone therapy, air-abrasion (high tech sandblaster) which minimizes or eliminates shots, nice! He seems to have all the high-tech stuff I've seen on tv and the Internet. I think he does stuff like sleep apnea too, excellent."
Patients of Biodentist Alabama receive a high level of dental care through which a combination of advanced technology and personal attention achieve wonderful results.
Digital x-rays are the most accurate way of taking intra oral images of your teeth. Benefits of this technology include:
- Less radiation exposure
- High quality resolution
- Immediate viewing
- Wider image per exposure
- Saves time and money through greater accuracy
Micro air abrasion
Micro air abrasion technology allows us to treat teeth without having to drill them! Patients enjoy benefits such as:
- More comfortable, more peaceful treatment
- Potential to treat teeth without the need of needles or numbing medication
- Conservative care that preserves healthy tooth material
- Potential to treat multiple teeth in one visit
- More durable restoration is possible with micro air abrasion and composite fillings
- Sodium Bicarbonate polishing
Our proven gentle Light Scalpel CO2 laser is an excellent adjunct technology for the treatment of gum disease and other oral concerns related to bacteria. Gum disease is often treated manually by scraping plaque and tartar from teeth, gums, and root surfaces. Removal is one thing, but destruction is another altogether. The CO2 laser, which is safe for healthy tissues, is powerful against harmful oral bacteria, killing microbes like spirochetes where they live and threaten gum tissue.
Surgical Piezotome® Ultrasonic
Innovative ultrasonic technology is used as a non-surgical method of tooth removal. The inclusion of ultrasonic instead of cutting is conservative due to the greater preservation of bone tissue around teeth. Additionally, this method is more comfortable for our patients.
Microscope phase contrast
The microscopic evaluation of oral bacteria is one of the best ways to address gum disease and other dental problems proactively. With a single sample of plaque taken from tooth or gum surfaces, our microscope will show us exactly which types of oral bacteria are present in the mouth and to what extent. By having an accurate idea of the number and type of bacteria in your mouth, Dr. Pfister can truly customize treatment to your needs.
This technology utilizes sound waves to vibrate away voids and gaps between your composite filling and teeth. This helps avoid sensitivity, increases the overall strength of your filling, and decreases the time you need to spend in the dental chair.
SoproLIFE Intraoral camera
This technology has 3 different modes to the camera. It uses a fancy wavelength of light that is tuned to different bacteria commonly found in the mouth. This helps us see exactly where teeth are not being brushed or where there is possible cavity. Cameras aid us in communicating to patients their needs.
Dr. Nathan Pfister is proud to announce that Biodentist Alabama has invested in patients by purchasing today's greatest technology for same-day restorations known as CEREC. CEREC is a CAD/CAM system that can create restorations such as veneers, crowns, and bridges during a patient's appointment - ensuring fast, efficient dental care without waiting or extra visits to the dental chair! This innovative technology is not available at all dental practices, as it does require extra training, expense, and expertise.
Cone Beam CT
3 D Technology that allows the highest degree of information for accurate diagnosis of tooth, jaw, sinus and TMJ health. It also allows us to review a root canal for evidence of bacteria leaking out.
Dr. Nathan Pfister wants to ensure he invests in the best equipment for diagnostics in the area. This is why he has recently obtained the Kavo Diagnocam for use in detecting dental caries. This particular device is used for catching dental cavities in the earlier stages without being invasive. It uses a special light and video that is used to detect cavities without x-ray radiation and immediately while physically evaluating the smile. This state-of-the-art technology is a wonderful asset to our diagnostic devices and is ideal for helping patients monitor the health of their smiles.
Occlusion refers to the way your upper and lower teeth make contact. Incorrect positioning of at least one tooth can place excessive force on teeth and produce other abnormalities.
Occlusal disharmony can result in discomfort and damage underlying soft tissues and supportive bone.
T-Scan® is the industry's most respected digital technology designed to analyze bite forces and stability. Traditional approaches show where contact is made. T-Scan® measures the timing and amount of bite forces. A digital "map" of your mouth is rendered to visually illustrate destructive imbalances. With this precise, comprehensive data, Dr. Pfister can prevent damage and offer effective treatment.
Bio EMG (Electromyography)
Accurate diagnostics are the cornerstones of effective treatments. Surface Electromyography is used to diagnose muscular diseases. SEMG measures electrical activity released when head and neck muscles contract.
BioEMG III™ is designed to reliably assess function by tracking minute electrical signals from resting and moving muscles. Electronic devices release electrical signals identified by lesser in-office craniofacial systems as muscle activity. BioEMG III™ offers unparalleled noise reduction.
Each muscle's behavior is clearly displayed, so Dr. Pfister distinguishes between hyperactive and properly-resting muscles. BioEMG III™'s unique features offer an accurate way to test bite positions and design treatments effective for each patient's muscles.
Bio JVA (Joint Vibration Analysis)
Smooth, well-lubricated joints function optimally by producing minimal friction and vibration. Disorders of the joints and muscles that control jaw movement roughen surfaces. The resulting friction and vibration produces pain and limits motion.
The BioJVA™ ("Joint Vibration Analysis") system identifies signature patterns produced by each disorder to pinpoint the cause of disruptive symptoms.
The temporomandibular joint function that is so vital to repositioning the lower jaw during TMD, orthodontic, and reconstructive treatments, may be recorded in 10 seconds and interpreted in 10 minutes. Dr. Pfister applies accurate data to develop a treatment plan that relieves pain and improves quality of life.
