Advanced Technology for Skilled, Comfortable and Efficient Dental Treatment
Dr. Robert Finkel has been providing comfortable and experienced dental care to people in the Atlanta area for almost 40 years.
With advanced technical training and experience, Dr. Finkel uses the best of dentistry’s technological advances to ensure that he can deliver high-quality, comfortable treatment to all of his patients.
Read below to learn more about the advanced equipment that Dr. Finkel uses to complete your dental treatment rapidly and with minimal discomfort.
DentalVibe – The Revolutionary Painless Oral Injection System
The DentalVibe is a revolutionary tool that applies a light vibration to the area where anesthesia is being administered. Research has shown that this vibration reaches the brain first and, essentially, blocks the brain from perceiving the injection. The vibration also helps spread the anesthesia once it’s in the tissue so it can work faster than normal traditional injections. Patients typically say they are unaware of when the injection actually occurs.
This is one of the many tools we use to provide the most comfortable experience possible for our patients
The Wand® Computer-Assisted Anesthesia System
Our patients routinely find that Dr. Finkel’s computer-controlled injections are very comfortable. This is because the discomfort associated with injections comes almost exclusively from the flow of the anesthetic into the body, as opposed to the insertion of the needle itself.
The Wand is a computer-controlled anesthetic distribution system that is designed to prevent any discomfort. It flows evenly so only the exact part of the mouth being treated is numbed, and it does it with such accuracy that it is, in fact, unnoticeable.
Air Abrasion Drill-free Cavity Treatment
Air abrasion is a drill-free technique for removing tooth decay and for other minimally invasive applications. Dr. Finkel finds that this advanced tool is ideal for cleaning out pits and fissures, treating cavities in children and treating cavities in small areas of the tooth. It does this all comfortably and with no need for anesthetic.
Digital X-rays put out less radiation than traditional X-ray machines and there is no need for processing film of the image. They are very quick and comfortable. Your X-rays can be seen by Dr. Finkel within seconds of taking them. He can then go over the results with you on our in-room computer screens.
Intraoral cameras are tiny digital cameras that fit comfortably in your mouth and enable Dr. Finkel to show you an enlarged image of your dental problems on a computer screen.
VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening
The VELscope uses ultraviolet light to screen for oral abnormalities. It’s a fast and painless part of every thorough checkup. Using the VELscope, Dr. Finkel can discover a wide variety of oral abnormalities, often before they’re even visible to the unassisted eye.
TENS Jaw Relaxation Therapy
Dr. Finkel uses a low-frequency Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulation, or TENS unit, to help relax your jaw muscles and adjust your bite. By delivering small electrical impulses to the muscles responsible for jaw movement, the TENS unit relaxes these muscles. This results in increased blood flow to flush toxins from the area. In a single treatment, the relaxed jaw muscles find ideal positioning.
Comfort Massage Dental Chairs
Our comfortable new dental chairs will massage you gently during your cleanings. Music, television and DVDs are available during longer procedures to help you stay relaxed and comfortable.
