Our Avanced Dental Technology in Sacramento, CA

Precision & Comfort: Advanced Dental Technology

The dental field is constantly evolving, making dental visits faster and more comfortable and dentists more accurate than ever. Sacramento modern dentist Dr. A. Scott Grivas III and our skilled dental team use state-of-the-art tools and techniques to provide the most comfortable procedures and the most accurate results. Read this helpful guide to review all of the revolutionary advanced dental technology available at our practice, and learn how we provide the most comprehensive care for our patients.

Our Advanced Dental Technology 

GALILEOS ComfortPlus

Our GALILEOS ComfortPlus 3D digital imaging technology provides the highest quality images and the most intuitive usage. It allows our advanced dentist in Sacramento to plan and complete dental implant placement, create precise Invisalign® alignment plans, and engage our patients in every step of their treatment process. With chairside monitors, you can view high-definition images of your teeth, jawbone, and facial structure alongside Dr. Grivas, so he can thoroughly explain and simulate your treatment process and results. 

Digital X-Rays and Cone Beam Scans

Our advanced digital X-ray and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology provides detailed pictures that are instantly visible on a nearby chairside monitor. Dr. Grivas can rotate, color-code, and transfer these images electronically for patient convenience. 

CBCT scanning is a breakthrough in dental technology that creates 3D X-rays, which show bone thickness, jaw structures, tooth relationships, root canal anatomy, and other vital information for planning in-depth restorative care. Plus, our techniques emit up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional machines, which protects our valued patients.

Soft Tissue Laser

Soft tissue laser technology enables us to perform many dental procedures in a more precise and comfortable manner. The highly-concentrated, low-heat energy beam minimizes bleeding by instantly cauterizing the treatment area, minimizing the need for sutures. The depth and extent of incisions are kept to a minimum, which means that healthy tissue can be left intact and unaffected by treatment. Dr. Grivas uses a soft tissue laser when performing several treatments at our Sacramento dental office, including periodontal disease therapy and cosmetic gum recontouring.

Intraoral Camera

The intraoral camera is a small, camera-tipped wand that helps us take a clear and precise image of your oral health. By inserting the wand into your mouth, we can take a video of your teeth and transmit the image to a nearby TV screen. This allows Dr. Grivas to point out any issues and explain his recommendations in a much more understandable fashion. With this technology, we can identify dental problems early on and provide timely treatment.


DIAGNOdent is an advanced electronic device that aids in the early detection of cavities. By using laser light, we can detect hidden changes in your tooth structure. This helps us identify cavities before they become larger and require more extensive treatment. With DIAGNOdent, we can provide faster and more effective treatment, ensuring a healthier smile for you.

CEREC® Restorations

Our CEREC machine is a state-of-the-art technology that enables us to provide same-day dental restorations. Using this machine, we can expertly mill dental crowns, inlays, or onlays right here in our Sacramento office while you wait. This eliminates the need for multiple appointments and the hassle of wearing temporary restorations. With CEREC, you can walk out the same day with a dramatically improved smile.

Piezo® Ultrasonic Scaler

In the fight against periodontal disease, our Piezo ultrasonic scaler is a big help. Its rapid vibrations effectively remove calculus, debris, and stains from teeth, leaving you with a smile that feels and looks great. This technology is much more comfortable than traditional scaling, and it enables us to provide a deeper, more thorough clean.

STA Wand

Some patients have a difficult time with injections. Thankfully, our STA Wand delivers a computer-regulated flow that provides immediate relief when an injection is necessary. With the STA Wand, we can provide a more comfortable and pain-free experience for our patients.


Our specialized Vizilite light is an excellent tool for detecting potentially abnormal tissues that could develop into oral cancer. By passing the light over your mouth, our team can easily reveal any abnormal tissues that may be missed by the naked eye. This helps us identify oral cancer at an early stage and provide timely treatment.

How has advanced dental technology improved the accuracy of dental diagnoses?

Advanced dental technology has greatly improved the accuracy of dental diagnoses. For instance, digital X-rays provide a clearer, more detailed image of teeth and surrounding tissues. Intraoral cameras allow dentists to view hard-to-reach areas in the mouth, making it easier to detect dental issues such as cavities or gum disease. 

Laser technology has also improved the accuracy of dental procedures, allowing for more precise and minimally invasive treatments. Overall, these technological advancements help dentists provide more accurate diagnoses and better treatment options.

Can advanced dental technology help dentists prevent oral health issues from progressing?

Yes, technology has enabled dentists to better predict and prevent dental issues before they become more serious. With advanced imaging technology, such as cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and digital radiography, dentists can detect potential problems early on. 

Additionally, tools such as DIAGNOdent can help identify cavities in their earliest stages. This allows for prompt treatment, preventing the need for more invasive and costly procedures down the line. By using advanced technology, dentists can provide better preventive care and help patients maintain optimal oral health.

How can patients benefit from choosing a dental practice that uses advanced dental technology?

Patients can benefit greatly from choosing a dental practice that uses advanced technology. With advanced technology, dentists can diagnose problems more accurately, often before they become serious. This allows for earlier intervention and treatment, which can ultimately save patients time, discomfort, and money. Additionally, advanced technology often allows for less invasive procedures, shorter recovery times, and more comfortable experiences for patients overall.

What are some of the latest advancements in dental technology?

The latest advancements in dental technology include digital impressions, 3D printing, and CAD/CAM systems, which have revolutionized the way dental restorations are created. Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) allows dentists to create 3D images of a patient’s mouth and jaw, which enables more precise diagnoses and treatment planning. 

Laser dentistry has also advanced, offering minimally invasive procedures for both soft and hard tissue treatments. Finally, intraoral cameras and patient education software allow dentists to show patients their dental health in real-time and explain their treatment options more thoroughly. These advancements ultimately lead to more accurate diagnoses, faster, more comfortable treatments, and better overall patient outcomes.
