NORTHRIDGE, Calif., March 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Northridge dentist, Dr. Ariz at Northridge Dental Group, has upgraded the current technologies used at their office to improve patient care. Dr. Farshid Ariz, DMD, and Dr. Shahdad Arami, DDS, are now offering i-CAT and E4D technology to provide additional comfort to area patients during their dental visits. These latest technological advancements are major breakthroughs in dental science.

The powerful i-CAT system provides more accurate and clearer 3D scans that are used in evaluating oral health. This system provides insight to problems below the gum line. The scans are used by Dr. Ariz, dentist in Northridge, and controlled with a computer and software package to make the process more cost-effective and comfortable for patients.

The investment and implementation of the E4D CAM system allows in office restorations to be designed and created quickly. The system provides a new way to take a laser image of the teeth and the information is transmitted as a digital signal to a milling machine. Dr. Arami, cosmetic dentist in Northridge, can then create cosmetic restorations like dental crowns, dental implants, veneers, and onlays instead of outsourcing laboratory manufacturing.

Patients benefit from these systems because they are faster ways to produce restorations and give insight into oral health while discovering potential problems easier. The ability to make restorations at the dental office is a huge benefit and will decrease the number of visits to Dr. Arami, Northridge cosmetic dentist, for cosmetic treatments.
