Advances in technology make receiving the dental care you need more efficient, effective, and comfortable than ever before. At Greder Dental, Dr. Mack Greder and Dr. Jennifer Greder have equipped our office with state-of-the-art dental technology to drastically improve your experience at the dentist’s office. From intraoral cameras to digital impressions and our soft tissue laser, we can’t wait to give patients in Omaha, NE the star treatment with our truly high-tech approach.
Convenient Intraoral Cameras
Many times, a visual representation is the most helpful tool in explaining the ins and outs of your treatment planning. The intraoral camera allows your dentist to capture accurate images of your teeth, then immediately transfer them onto a screen right at your chairside. With the help of these digital images and the clear, easy-to-understand communication we’re known for, it is our goal to make sure patients are always fully informed on their oral health.
Safe Digital X-Rays
Compared to traditional x-rays, digital radiography offers greater accuracy while also exposing you to far less radiation (up to 85% less!). Digital x-rays offer a clearer image of your teeth and oral structures, and they are easily transferred between dental offices, reducing the risk of miscommunication or extra hassle in the event that we need to refer you to a specialist. We also love them because they’re a more eco-friendly option -- no need for developing or extra storage space.
Precise Cone Beam CT Scanner
When a dental or facial x-ray is insufficient for advanced treatment planning, the Cone Beam CT (CBCT) scanner provides the in-depth look your doctor needs. Especially useful in implant dentistry, the CBCT captures three-dimensional images of your dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and the bone that will support your new dental implants in a single scan. The CBCT may also be used in the diagnosis of TMJ/TMD or for treatment planning with impacted wisdom teeth.
Mess-Free Digital Impressions
If the thought of biting down on wet, uncomfortable impression cement makes you cringe, you are not alone. Fortunately, digital “impressions” eliminate the need for biting down at all, while also providing us with a more accurate representation of your oral structures. Greder Dental prefers the iTero Intraoral Scanner. iTero’s digital images are captured quickly, ready immediately, and allow your dentist to get to work on creating your new restoration right away.
Comfortable Soft Tissue Laser
Our soft tissue laser greatly improves the way we treat your gums after infection or injury take hold. Traditional surgical treatment for gum disease, gummy smiles, or gum recession is often painful and has a long recovery. Thanks to the ultra-precise soft tissue laser, your dentist performs these common periodontal treatments without the need for sutures or stitches. The laser also seems to promote healing -- a win win win for periodontal treatments of all stripes.
Efficient Paperless Charting
Keeping track of our patients’ dental and medical information from appointment to appointment, with easy access to review the documents, and complete protection for personal information used to require large amounts of space and time. Today, we use paperless charting to organize, store, and access all of your information. Best of all, with no physical files, your information is safely stored in our high security data management system. Using our digital documentation system, we seamless track your dental health journey. Patients in Douglas County or the Omaha-Council Bluffs Metro Area are invited to visit the high-tech dentists at Greder Dental. Schedule an appointment today!
