Dentist Fairfax, VA
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.
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 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. Mary-Stuart Gallian to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.
Soft Tissue Lasers
With soft tissue lasers at our disposal, Dr. Mary-Stuart Gallian can provide precise high-quality treatments that are relatively pain-free, less invasive, and useful for a wide variety of dental treatments.
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.
With the highly versatile soft tissue laser, Dr. Mary-Stuart Gallian can 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. Dr. Mary-Stuart Gallian minimizes patients’ discomfort both during and after the treatment and lessens their recovery time.
Dr. Mary-Stuart Gallian 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.
With the Cavitron, patients enjoy a more comfortable experience and time spent scaling and polishing is decreased.
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.
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening Light
This handheld scope uses a special blue-spectrum light to scan the tissues in the mouth. This light creates distinct visual patterns on health and unhealthy tissues through natural fluorescence. With this screening light, we can more accurately discover potential oral cancers in early, highly treatable stages.
Nomad™ X-Ray Gun
The Nomad™ handheld x-ray system is battery-powered for completely cordless portability. With the Nomad™ gun, we can take accurate, efficient scans with less radiation exposure than most conventional systems. The Nomad™ is comfortable, convenient, and can be used in any treatment room.
iTero Wellness Scanner
The specialized technology we use with our patients to help them get the clearest picture of their oral wellness is called the the iTero wellness scanner. An intraoral scanner, this device is used to track oral health. Even the most challenging cases can be accurately scanned with our intra-oral scanner, without the need for the goopy trays used in manual impressions.
The iTero shows where there is trauma in your bite through various color coding. It provides a clear visual representation of any areas that may need treatment – like worn, chipped, cracked, or damaged teeth.
