Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:
Our office is equipped with modern air abrasion technology. We utilize a small handheld device to blow a stream of air and tiny aluminum oxide particles against your tooth. This can be used to safely blast away tooth decay and remove surface stains. Air abrasion may also be used as part of a cosmetic or restorative treatment to prepare a tooth for bonding or to repair cracked or worn teeth.

The Power of the Cavitron
One of the advanced technologies we use at Glen Park Family Dentistry to remove calculus buildup from your gums is the Cavitron. The handheld device uses ultrasonic vibrations to quickly clean teeth and gums and reduce the time our hygienists spend scaling and polishing.
Our advanced digital x-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.
With digital x-rays, we can view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your dental treatment.
Digital x-rays require much less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays are safe and effective dental technology.
Seeing It All: The Intra-oral Camera
Our intra-oral camera is small and thin, about the size of a pen. It is used inside your mouth to capture close-up photographs of your teeth , gums, lips and tongue. Because of its compact size and elegant nature, it is convenient, simple to use, and capable of viewing a wide variety of angles. The camera is a secure and reliable tool which can be used for patients of all ages.
The camera is a valuable tool for diagnosis and treatment planning. A new disposable cover is employed each time we use the intra-oral unit. This always ensures your health and safety. Images taken by the intra-oral camera can be processed, printed out, or removed digitally after your test.
A Panoramic x-ray machine rotates around your entire head to take a 360-degree view of your teeth, sinuses, and the bone structure of your head and jaws. This provides a more complete image than standard x-rays. Panoramic x-ray imagery is a valuable resource for Dr. Sanginiti to use in his diagnosis and treatment planning.
Rotary Endodontics Handpiece
A rotary endodontics handpiece is a tool designed to be used in root canal therapy. By using this handpiece, we can complete the treatment gently and efficiently. This allows you to have a quicker and more comfortable treatment experience.
