Advanced Dental Technology to Complement Advanced Training

Advanced dental technologies empower Dr. Filippi to provide more effective, less invasive treatment with smoother, more predictable outcomes. Our cone beam CT (CBCT) scanner enables us to capture detailed 3D images of your mouth that we can use to plan out dental implant placement and other procedures with predictable results. This innovative technology operates with a fraction of the radiation output of conventional CT machines used in many facilities, so it’s safer for you. Our Sirona XG 3D equipment also enables us to capture 2D and 3D X-ray images in high-definition.

A compact PIEZOSURGERY® unit enables us to perform precise bone grafting and other hard tissue procedures using sonic vibrations instead of a scalpel. This is especially effective for treating patients who have a fear of sharp dental instruments. The accuracy of the equipment leaves any healthy adjacent soft tissues untouched. As we’re completing your care, we can introduce plasma-rich growth factors (PrGF), a component of your own blood, to help your treatment sites heal naturally and quickly. These growth factors function the way a scab does after you suffer an abrasion—they form a protective layer to aid in healing.
