Our goal is to provide our patients with optimal service using the latest state of the art technology. We are committed to make your dental visits comfortable, efficient, and pain free.
Modern technology is improving rapidly, every year we invest in acquiring latest dental equipment, update our equipment, and keep our team up to date by taking additional continuing education courses.
By using the latest modern advancements in dentistry we can improve our patients’ experience in our dental office. Our priority is to offer the best dental care using most up to date modern dental equipment in a friendly setting.
One of the most dreaded parts of a dental visit is the dental injection for anesthesia. The Dental Vibe can make those annoying injections completely pain free.
The Dental Vibe generates gentle vibrations distracting senses from feeling the injection. Most patients in our office have reported not even feeling a pinch when using this new technique.
Smile Arts of NY is one of the only offices in NYC using the Dental Vibe system. Dr. Peter Mann was honored to promote the benefits of the Dental Vibe on national television. Please watch below to hear what our patients have to say about the Dental Vibe from the segment on CBS 2 News.
Digital radiographs are safer and produce much better quality images over the traditional film x-rays. Digital dental x-rays produce up to 90% less radiation compared to film x-rays.
The images appear instantaneously on the computer screen. A small sensor easily glides inside a patient’s mouth and the images instantly pop up on a computer screen in the exam room. In addition this new technology generates images that are diagnostically superior to x-ray films.
Our digital equipment is exceptionally maintained and tested regularly for patients’ safety. Once the digital image has been captured, the dentist can use tools to magnify the areas requiring closer inspection.
When necessary the digital images can be easily e-mailed to a specialist which is much easier than duplicating film. Digital x-rays require no developing solutions, fixers, cleansers, or x-ray mounts. Digital radiography is environmentally friendly because there are no unnecessary chemicals used to develop traditional film x-rays.
Re-shaping the gingiva or gums in the past was done with a scalpel. Lasers for soft tissue treatments are used in place of scalpels to perform procedures with less bleeding, post-op discomfort, and no sutures.
Lasers are available at varying powers and wavelengths and can be used for procedures that would otherwise be performed using electrosurgery or a scalpel.
Laser dentistry generates very little or zero heat and is a far gentler form of surgery. Dental lasers enable soft tissue to be effectively, precisely, and safely removed. A diode Laser may be necessary for implant procedures, dental crown procedures, and other dental procedures requiring gum re-shaping.
Smile Arts of NY can utilize an intra-oral camera to help enhance your understanding of your oral health. An intra-oral camera is a very small camera that allows doctors and patients to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intra-oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These treatments can be printed as for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance.
Mini Dental Implants (MDIs) can be used for single tooth replacement, multiple tooth replacement and full arch replacement. Patient with thin jaw bone may be ideal candidates for the thinner implants. In certain situations there isn’t enough space for a larger size implant due to adjacent teeth being close together. Mini-implants work well to replace smaller teeth like upper lateral incisors or lower incisors where a regular size implant may not be able to fit.
Mini dental implants are smaller in diameter than conventional implants. MDIs range in diameter size from 1.8mm to 2.9mm and have been approved by the FDA for long-term use.
A leading study shows that over a 5 year period, out of 2,514 MDIs placed in 531 patients, 94.2% were successful. An unsuccessful implant consisted of an implant loosening up in the bone.
When this occurred the implant was simply removed and a new one was placed. The MDI procedures have now been highly refined, and following protocols currently in place, successful use of MDIs is able to be implemented in clinical practice.
The success rates demonstrated in this study are comparable to that of studies conducted on conventional implants.
