Our Technologies

Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT)
What Is A CBCT Scan?
Dental Cone Beam Tomography [Dental CBCT] is a specialized type of x-ray that provides more information than conventional dental or facial x-rays. This computerized scan uses advanced technology to generate three-dimensional[3-D] images. We, at Patterson Village Dentistry, have recently upgraded our imaging technology to enable the most accurate diagnosis and implementation of cutting edging treatment for common dental problems. The CS-8100 3D represents the most sophisticated dental scanning technology available.
What are the benefits of a Dental CBCT scan?
The benefits of a Dental CBCT scan are that it:
  • Provides 3-D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone which are considerably more detailed than conventional two-dimensional dental x-rays.
  • Allows for more precise diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • Is simple and comfortable to take and can diagnostically image both bone and soft tissue simultaneously.
What are the common uses of a Dental CBCT scan?
Dental CBCT scans are commonly used to:
  • Evaluate the position of teeth, bone structure, jaw joints and the airway.
  • Aid in:
    • Diagnosis of fractured teeth
    • Accurate placement of implants
    • Surgical planning for the removal of impacted wisdom teeth
    • 3-D orthodontic evaluation
    • Complex root canal diagnosis and treatment
What are the risks of a Dental CBCT scan?
Although relatively low, Dental CBCT scans cause some exposure to radiation; the amount of exposure is approximately the same as taking a five-hour international plane flight. CBCT scans use a much lower radiation dose than medical CT Scans. While a medical CT scan of the jaw may expose a patient to a radiation dose equivalent to 179-578 days of background radiation—that is, the amount of radiation you are exposed to in your daily life—a CBCT scan of the same area is comparable to only 6-8 days of background radiation. Due to radiation exposure, scans are not generally recommended for pregnant women and should be used cautiously in the pre-orthodontic evaluation of children.
How does a Dental CBCT scanning procedure work?
During the scan, a motorized arm rotates 360-degrees around your head while capturing multiple images from different angles that are then reconstructed to create a single 3-D image.
Who interprets the results of a Dental CBCT scan?
The interpretation of a Dental CBCT scan may be done by your dentist, dental specialist or radiologist
Bone Grafting with Leukocyte-Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) A common issue for patients considering a Dental Implant is the lack of sufficient jawbone density. This can be very important to support the implant with the utmost efficacy and safety. For qualified candidates, there is a new, highly advanced technique available to create a solid foundation for dental implants while helping to enhance their overall oral health.

Patterson Village Dentistry is pleased to offer a state of the art, all-natural, treatment procedure meant to promote bone regrowth and accelerated bone healing after Implant procedures and in the treatment of Gum Disease. This FDA cleared procedure begins with Dr. Ali drawing a small amount of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge right here in our office. The centrifuge then spins the vials containing the blood at a specified angulation and high speed to create a condensed clot of fibrin. Once separated, this fibrin clot is flattened by a special process, effectively creating a thin, compressed matrix of highly concentrated healing factors.

Following the cleansing and sterilization of the treatment area, the PRF matrix and bone grafting material is carefully placed next to your existing jawbone structure, helping to stimulate the growth of new bone tissue around the graft for an ample amount of strength and density to successfully support a dental implant. Ultimately, L-PRF is both a holistic and biocompatible technique, often enabling qualified patients to achieve faster-healing and better-quality bone structure than ever before. In addition to bone grafting, the dentist can also utilize L-PRF to enhance sinus lift procedures for quicker healing and improved overall results. The safety of the procedure is enhanced considerably because a small amount of blood is harvested from the patient herself and there is no concern about disease transmission.

If you are interested in PRF, or if you would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Ali for more information please contact us today at 804-282-3197 or click here to book an appointment

The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to just a few years ago. The camera gives us the ability to view the entire mouth on a monitor so that we can get a closer look at any potential issues or problems that may arise. In addition, the patient will have the ability to see for themselves first hand the same images we are seeing. These digital images are also excellent for gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.
Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal, is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often due to the fact that they are infected and the tooth is causing pain.

Rotary Endodontics is a way of performing the root canal utilizing a specific electrical handpiece. This tool often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to perform the process with greater ease.
There are basically two types of handpieces, air-driven and electric. Electric handpieces are much stronger than air-driven due to the fact that a motor is spinning the bur as opposed to air. This allows the doctor to remove decay at a faster pace. This will cut down on the time it takes to complete a procedure.
Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for the patient. With the advances in modern technology, we are now able to pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is extremely important in being able to treat any issues prior to them becoming a major irreversible problem.

The oral cancer screening is often completed with an ultraviolet light or similar device that allows us to view issues that can't always be detected by the human eye under normal conditions.

Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.
Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
