Technology

The professionals on our dental care team have dedicated their careers to providing the best care possible to our patients. We are continuously educating ourselves on the latest dental care techniques, technologies & materials

to provide you with the most advanced dental care available. All treatment decisions at our practice come from conversations between you & your dentist, & we are happy to offer dental care beyond the treatments listed on our website to fit your individual needs. If you have questions about any of our dental care services, please do not hesitate to ask.

Snoring Treatment

If your snoring is annoying your sleep partner & disrupting your happy home life, we can help! Snoring is caused when the tissues of your soft palate vibrate while you breathe. Dentists can recommend oral appliances that help prevent snoring. These oral appliances can also help treat obstructive sleep apnea, which has been linked to serious medical conditions like depression, heart disease & stroke, not to mention drowsiness & poor sleep quality. Snoring appliances resemble a mouth guard & work by putting your jaw in a position that is better for clear breathing. If your snoring is keeping you & your family members from having a good night’s sleep, please contact us to find out more about how we can help.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a great tool for patients who may be uneasy about their dental procedures. The beauty of laughing gas is that your dentist can constantly adjust your level of sedation during the procedure & once it is shut off, the effects stop almost immediately. A few minutes after the procedure is complete, you’ll be back to normal!

Dr. Yi is certified to administer nitrous oxide for nervous patients. Call today to schedule your appointment or to see if you’re a candidate for nitrous oxide sedation!

Bonding

Bonding is the quick & painless way to restore your smile’s natural beauty. If your smile is dulled by chips, stains, cracks or misaligned teeth, bonding can help you reclaim it in a single visit. During the bonding procedure, a thin coat of plastic or resin is painted over the damaged teeth, strengthening them & making them virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Mercury-Free Fillings

We understand that some patients may have concerns about whether mercury amalgam (silver) fillings are hazardous to their health. At Fremont Family Smiles, we believe that the overall health & peace of mind of our patients always comes first. Accordingly, at our office we have elected only to use new & advanced tooth fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no mercury.

The major advantage of offering mercury-free tooth fillings is that we are able to offer you more subtle, flattering options for fillings. With these new materials, getting a filling no longer means your friends & family see a flash of metal when you smile or open your mouth. Our tooth-colored or white tooth fillings are essentially indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

While our biggest concern is the health & function of your teeth, we are proud to offer tooth filling options that do not affect the aesthetics of your smile.

DIGITAL X-RAYS

Digital X-rays are computer-generated images that require up to 90% less radiation than conventional film-type X-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide X-ray film, which must be developed & then fixed in caustic and environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor. A picture of the tooth is instantaneously transmitted onto the monitor in the treatment room so we can see your teeth & surrounding structures immediately.

HAND-HELD X-RAY SYSTEM

Utilizing the latest X-ray technology with the KaVo NOMAD Pro 2 hand-held

X-ray system, we can complete your X-rays more quickly and efficiently without ever leaving the room. It saves you the discomfort of keeping the sensors in your mouth for longer periods of time and is truly a safer system used for taking X-rays.

INTRAORAL CAMERA TECHNOLOGY

The Intraoral camera is used for diagnosis, education, and collaboration. The images from our cameras are used to show you any details of your tooth or soft tissue. It is easy to use, reliable, portable, simple to clean, comfortable and very safe for all patients.

  

ITERO SCANNER

The iTero Scanner uses imaging technology to enhance the patient's experience and education. It is engineered to be portable, powerful, and intuitive while eliminating the need for gooey & sticky impressions.  It works easy with Invisalign to scan and immediately send to obtain simulations of the patient's teeth and obtain aligners easier and faster. 

AUTOCLAVE/STERILIZATION UNIT

Sterilizing all instruments effectively and properly is vital here in our office.  We use a high end autoclave/sterilization unit called the Midmark M11 UltraClave™ Automatic Sterilizer to ensure employee and patient safety. It is designed to be reliable, easy to use, and can optimize sterilization output.
