Dental Implant Technology, Boston MA

Our office employs many types of new technology. These technologies benefit the patient by offering improved diagnosis and care. Let our experienced staff help you today, whether you are in Boston, MA, Maine or any of the surrounding areas.

Cone Beam technology provides a digital tomographic 3D view of the patient’s area of interest. A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional. With Cone Beam systems, the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas. The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago.

Dr. Rothenberg is proud to offer a unique service to his patients. He can bring his Cone Beam Scanner to your own home, providing convenience for any patient, or allowing the anxious patient to be in a familiar environment. Contact us today to learn more.

Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Milling (CAM) offer advanced treatment options with less waiting time for a restoration. Depending on the procedure(s) being performed, your dental restoration(s) may be able to be placed on the same day or next day instead of the usual wait of one to two weeks or more. Using a special scanner, the office can take a digital impression without using traditional trays, improving patient comfort. The restoration(s) is then designed using advanced computer 3D technology that can analyze the interaction of the new restoration with your other teeth. A new crown can be milled out of a solid piece of tooth-colored composite material providing strength that may surpass that of many crowns produced in a dental lab. Advancements in materials and technology have provided many options for great restorations that can both look great, provide superior strength compared to other restorations, and reduce the need for multiple visits to the office.
A-PRF and I-PRF is an extremely new technology that was invented in France. Using the patient’s own blood, Dr. Rothenberg will make membranes and solutions to assist in tissue and bone regeneration. These personalized membranes and tissues help in strengthening the area where the implants are placed.
Computer Guided Implant Surgery is an innovative new technology that allows Dr. Rothenberg to perform virtual implant surgery before he ever touches the patient’s mouth. Using a 3D computerized imaging to visualize the anatomy of the patient’s jaw, the doctor can plan the exact placement of virtual implants. This technology helps provide the doctor with important information about bone quality and quantity before he begins the surgery. This advance knowledge helps Dr. Rothenberg prepare for the surgery and anticipate what treatments will be needed, thus leading to reduced surgery times and improved recovery times.
The Bicon® Implant System is a unique implant system that involves no screws. Most traditional implants are secured in the bone with screws, but these screws are very susceptible to breakage or loosening. Additionally, loose or broken screws can also harbor bacteria which can cause infection which could result in the loss of the implant. The Bicon® Implant System eliminates these risks and provides a superior fit, faster recovery time, and more permanent bone regrowth.
Ceraroot® provides specialized ceramic implants for those patients who prefer not to use traditional metal implants. Ceraroot® implants are ceramic implants made of a specialized ceramic called Zirconia, which has been used in the space shuttles because of it’s resistance to both heat and breakage. Ceramic implants offer patients a more holistic approach than other implants, are known to resist plaque, are just as strong as titanium and have a very low rate of allergic reactions
The use of lasers in dentistry has brought about many great advancements. The use of lasers allows for procedures that are less painful, reduce the amount of tissue loss, and provide a reduction in bleeding. The use of a laser allows some procedures to be performed without the use of a drill or the need for a shot. Our practice uses lasers to improve your experience in our practice allowing us to provide technologically advanced care.
Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays. The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment. Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film. Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care. It’s also a very green technology. By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste it is better for you and the environment!
An intra-oral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and dentist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time.  With an intraoral camera, you are able to better understand what is happening in your mouth and review the status of your oral health.
Oral cancer affects thousands of Americans yearly. Dr. Rothenberg performs a complete oral cancer screening on every patient. If a biopsy is needed, Dr. Rothenberg will refer the patient to an oral surgery group for specialized care. With early detection, cancer may be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives.
These handpieces provide less vibration and noise than traditional dental drills. They are quieter and more efficient in tooth preparation, making dental procedures shorter and more manageable.
iPads® are used in our office to enhance patient education. As a visual tool, they help explain dental procedures and are an invaluable part of the patient care process.
These ultra quiet headphones are for patient use during any dental procedure. Patients can listen to their favorite music, movie, or television show without having to hear all of the surrounding noise going on as the dental work is being performed.
Our office offers free Wi-Fi for our patients use while visiting our office.
