La Porte, IN Dentist
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:
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.
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 Dr. Adekugbe to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.
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.
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 an excellent choice for patients with dental anxiety or a sensitive gag reflex.
By utilizing advanced technologies like the cone beam, we can provide an effective, efficient, and comfortable patient experience for you on every visit.
Rotary Endodontics Handpiece
A rotary endodontics handpiece is a tool designed to be used in root canal therapy. By using this handpiece, we can complete the treatment gently and efficiently. This allows you to have a quicker and more comfortable treatment experience.
Nomad™ X-Ray Gun
The Nomad™ handheld x-ray system is battery-powered for completely cordless portability. With the Nomad™ gun, our Apex Dental team can take accurate, efficient scans with less radiation exposure than most conventional systems. The Nomad™ is comfortable, convenient, and can be used in any treatment room.
About 1 in 5 Americans avoids going to the dentist due to dental anxiety or fear. For many of these patients, the biggest reason for their fear is pain from injections. With the Vibraject, needle fears can become a thing of the past.
The Vibraject System is a small hand-held tool used to administer anesthesia. Unlike a standard needle injection, however, the Vibraject applies light vibration to the area around the injection site as the anesthesia is being administered. Due to the way the brain interprets sensory information, the vibration sensation arrives first and blocks the sense of pain or injection discomfort.
Vibraject is safe to use with patients of all ages and all states of health. Among patients who have experienced the Vibraject, 95% have reported that their entire view of dentistry has changed. Many have gone on to say that they believe they might never have experienced dental fear at all had this revolutionary new tool been available during their childhood.
If you’ve delayed your oral care due to issues with dental anxiety or fear of pain from anesthesia needles, Vibraject is here for you. Contact our office for an appointment to get your health back on track.
Surgical Operating Microscope
The surgical operating microscope (SOM) was primarily used in endodontics but has been growing in periodontics, restorative and general dental procedures. Its crystal-clear technology and high magnification provides correct diagnostics and efficient procedures. The SOM is an integral part of dental diagnosis and treatment as it provides relatively flexible, but fully stereoscopic, magnified, and well-illuminated views of the operating field. Dr. Bunmi Adekugbe has had enough practice and operating time with SOM virtually making it an extension of his or her face. SOM’s great depth field allows and enhanced clinical abilities will make you feel more comfortable about any dental operation.
