Family Dentist in Plainfield, IL
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 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.
Digital x-rays allow us to 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 a safe and effective dental technology.
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. Que to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.
Soft Tissue Lasers
A laser is essentially a tiny beam of highly concentrated light. This beam can be used to provide pinpoint accuracy in treatments. Because the laser sterilizes the tissues and seals off blood vessels as it is used, the chance of infection or bleeding following laser treatment is minimal. The soft tissue laser is minimally-invasive, but highly effective.
The soft tissue laser allows Dr. Que to provide precise high-quality treatments that are relatively pain-free, less invasive, and useful for a wide variety of dental treatments.
The highly versatile soft tissue laser lets Dr. Que seal nerve endings and blood vessels and treat soft tissues simultaneously. This creates less stress on the gums, which significantly reduces both swelling and bleeding. Moreover, by using the soft tissue laser, Dr. Que minimizes patients’ discomfort both during and after the treatment and lessens their recovery time.
Dr. Que uses soft tissue laser technology to provide our patients with precise dental care with a comfortable dental experience.
The Cavitron is a handheld device used in periodontal deep cleaning. While scaling can be completed by hand, the Cavitron uses ultrasonic technology to remove calculus from teeth and gums quickly, gently and effectively.
The Cavitron gives patients a more comfortable experience with less time spent scaling and polishing.
What is the secret to making a great impression? Renwick Family Dental uses an intra-oral digital scanner to ensure that the impressions we take are accurate, efficient, and comfortable every time.
Impressions are necessary for the fabrication of dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Our hand-held intra-oral scanner takes 3-dimensional digital video impressions with proven accuracy. Even the most challenging cases can be accurately scanned with our intra-oral scanner.
Another benefit to you is reduced time. Most crowns are fabricated in our office and completed in a single visit. When we send precise digital scans to our lab, your bridge and/or implant restorations require less preparation work and can be fabricated more quickly. This means you can have your restoration placed and be enjoying the results sooner than with traditional impression methods.
In the past, you may have experienced dental trays that filled with a soft substance that hardened into an impression of your mouth and teeth. With the intra-oral scanner’s small hand-held wand, we can take accurate digital impressions quickly and easily, without triggering your gag reflex.
Even more, as we complete your scan, you will be able to view the impression on the monitor along with us. This allows you to see, more precisely, why we have recommended restoration for your oral health needs.
We look forward to seeing you again at your next appointment with us. We love to make a great impression.
Renwick Family Dental Care LLC has integrated the use of CAD/CAM technology to offer same-day dental restorations to our patients. We are committed to providing the most efficient and effective innovations available. CAD/CAM technology allows Dr. Que to design and craft high quality, metal-free dental restorations in a single patient visit.
CAD/CAM makes dental restoration effective and efficient. First, any decay is removed from the tooth. Next, we take digital images of the tooth using 3D modeling software. This 3D model is viewed on a high definition screen as Dr. Que designs the restoration for a precise fit and aesthetically pleasing look. Once the final design is complete, the PlanMill® crafts the custom restoration from a solid block of ceramic. The mill creates strong and highly durable restorations. Once bonded in place, it is adjusted and polished for a natural, beautiful look.
CAD/CAM technology allows patients to leave an appointment with a brand-new restoration. No more need for multiple appointments, messy impressions, and weeks of waiting for a lab to make the restoration. Temporary restorations are no longer needed.
You may be a candidate if you:
- Have been told you need a new crown, inlay, onlay or bridge
- Have a cracked tooth
- Have old failing restorations
- Have had damage or trauma to your tooth
- Are interested in replacing old metal restorations with biocompatible restorations
A crown appointment will take about two hours and requires no additional appointments. The 3D imaging technology allows our team to design a precise virtual restoration without taking impressions. This allows us to ensure restorations look great, fit perfectly, and can last for years.
We have the experience and qualifications to create same-day dental restorations.
The DIAGNOdent is an advanced dental tool that uses a laser to aid in detecting tooth decay. The DIAGNOdent can locate incipient cavities with pinpoint accuracy. This is especially useful in areas that can be difficult to diagnose through visual inspection or x-ray alone. The DIAGNOdent is simple, painless, and effective. With early detection, we can stop decay below the surface with minimally invasive treatment.
