Dentist in Huntington Beach, CA

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:

Cavitron

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, patient and hygienist comfort is increased and time spent scaling and polishing is decreased.

Cone Beam Imaging

Cone Beam imaging is an advanced form of digital radiograph. With the cone beam imager, one simple scan will produce a 3D image of your entire maxillofacial structure. This image can then be used in diagnostics, patient education, treatment planning, and treatment follow-up.

The cone beam provides an effective solution to create quick, clear, precise images for your benefit. Additionally, the cone beam uses minimal radiation in scanning and is a much less-invasive process than other forms of imaging. This makes the cone beam a great choice for patients with dental anxiety or a sensitive gag reflex.

By utilizing advanced technologies like the cone beam, we are able to provide an effective, efficient, and comfortable patient experience for you on every visit.

Digital X-Rays

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.

Intra-oral Camera

The intra-oral camera is about the size and shape of a pen. It is used to record images of your teeth, gums, mouth, and tongue from inside your mouth. Due to its small size and sleek design, it is comfortable, easy to use, and able to view a wide range of angles. The intra-oral camera is a safe and effective tool that can be used with patients of every age.

The intra-oral camera is a highly valuable resource for both diagnosis and treatment planning. Each time we use the intra-oral camera, a new disposable cover is employed. This ensures your health and safety at all times. After your exam, images captured by the intra-oral camera may be digitally stored, printed out, or deleted.

Invisalign®

The Invisalign® process uses a fully customized treatment plan for your individual needs. First, we will take X-rays, photographs, and impressions of your teeth. Next, we will use these images to create a digital 3D model of your mouth and teeth. We will map out the precise movements for each tooth to reach its proper placement and angle.

Once we have created your personalized plan, we can use the Invisalign® technology to show how your teeth will look during each stage of your treatment. We fabricate a series of clear aligners designed to fit exactly to your teeth. These aligners will guide your teeth to gently shift over time into their proper positions.

You can remove the aligners for meals and dental hygiene, but you should wear them at all other times for best results.

Panoramic X-Ray

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 our team to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.

Rotary Endodontics Handpiece

A rotary endodontics handpiece is a tool designed to be used in root canal therapy. By using this handpiece, we are able to complete the treatment gently and efficiently. This allows you to have a quicker and more comfortable treatment experience.

Soft Tissue Lasers

With soft tissue lasers at our disposal, we 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, we are able to 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, we minimize patients’ discomfort both during and after the treatment and even lessens their recovery time.

Harbour Landing Dental uses soft tissue laser technology to provide our patients with precise dental care with a comfortable dental experience.
