More comfort and better results
Dr. Kim has equipped his practice with the latest dental technology and tools to make your treatment more comfortable and efficient. His use of such high-quality instruments makes diagnosis more accurate, surgeries less invasive and routine treatment more gentle. Dr. Kim’s extensive training in each piece of advanced equipment allows him to produce more aesthetically pleasing and fully functional results.
Galileos Comfort Plus 3D Cone Beam CT (CBCT) Scanner
Our revolutionary Galileos 3D Cone Beam scanner captures digital 3D X-rays of the patient’s face and all important anatomical structures of the craniofacial region. This advanced technology allows Dr. Kim to get a detailed 3D view of your teeth and the supporting bone structures of your mouth, increasing the accuracy and efficiency of diagnosis and treatments in implantology, endodontics, oral surgery, orthodontics and general dentistry.
Dr. Kim uses the CEREC Omnicam to scan and capture a 3D model of your teeth. The CEREC computer software is then used to create a restoration that can be milled in the office just minutes later and bonded to your tooth. The entire process only takes a couple of hours, so that means with our in-office CEREC laboratory Dr. Kim can create restorations in only one visit!
Ergonomic Dental Chairs
Our office features high-quality dental chairs by Adec. These advanced chairs maximize comfort for the patient during treatment and have many ergonomic features including a thin and comfortable backrest, LED light, easier chair mobility and compact organization system.
Digital Intraoral X-rays
Dr. Kim uses the Progeny Preva to take digital intraoral X-rays. This advanced device is fast, convenient and applicable to nearly all standard dental diagnoses and treatments.
Digital Panoramic X-rays
Digital Panoramic X-rays use 80% less radiation than conventional X-ray machines and help dentists plan various dental treatments and surgery. With this machine, Dr. Kim can comfortably take a panoramic X-ray image of your entire jaw and display it on high resolution screens. The images are produced instantaneously and allow you to view and better understand Dr. Kim’s diagnosis and treatment plan.
Dr. Kim uses a high-powered microscope which allows him to see a tooth up to 20x its normal size. This is useful in many applications including general and cosmetic dentistry, endodontic procedures and more.
Dr. Kim uses high-resolution magnifying loupes to see even the smallest details of your teeth. These increase visibility and accuracy when identifying issues in your mouth and during surgical procedures.
Rotary Endodontic Handpiece
Rotary endodontic handpieces have become the preferred method of performing certain endodontic procedures such as root canals. Dr. Kim uses an electric handpiece to perform procedures faster, reducing your time in the dental chair and making it a more comfortable experience.
Dr. Kim uses electric handpieces for reduced noise, precise control and speed. This results in increased efficiency of procedures and less time in the dental chair for you.
Dr. Kim uses the Wand for painless computerized injections. The Wand’s computer provides a constant and precise flow of anesthetic directly ahead of the needle which reduces any discomfort to an unnoticeable level.
Piezo scalers remove plaque, tartar and bacteria from the tooth surface and gums by emitting high-frequency vibrations. Our ultrasonic scalers have a convenient intensity adjustment for patients with sensitive teeth.
The DIAGNOdent is a handheld device that Dr. Kim uses to scan your teeth for cavities. The DIAGNOdent uses lasers that can detect even the smallest cavities and provide useful information that allows Dr. Kim to prevent future tooth decay.
