Our dental technology is highly advanced to provide the utmost in patient care and treatments. Our digital X-rays help Drs. Jason and Alex Hecht evaluate a patient's full mouth immediately and recognize problems quickly. Staten Island Aesthetic & Implant Dentist was also the first dental office in Staten Island to use a CATscan machine.
Dr. Jason Hecht: In all aspects of dentistry there's this front edge of
knowledge through the continuing education that we do. We seriously
evaluate and see if this new machine can help our patient care and bring
the best possible outcome for our patients' teeth. The digital X-ray's
image help in the way we do our daily work. It's much faster. As soon as
the X-ray is taken, we can even be looking at the X-rays in another room
while our assistant is taking the X-rays. So if someone has an emergency,
someone is in a lot of pain, we take that X-ray. Instantly we see the
We see what's going on with that tooth and we can walk in, tell the patient
this is what you need on this tooth, this is what's going on. It's also
safer because we actually put the machines that we've been using for 20 or
30 years in dentistry on a much lower setting. The actual radiation can be
delivered is basically meaningless, minimal.
Dr. Alex Hecht: The technology that we have available to us today between
the CAT Scan and the development by implant companies of shorter and
thinner implants. Even those patients whose chewing ability went down to
such a minimal level, more often than not we can help those people, also.
