Technology

Cutting edge technology

At your Fort Lauderdale dentist at My Dentist for Life, we pride ourselves on staying at the forefront of modern dental technology. It is our mission to provide our patients with the highest quality dental solutions on the market. Not only do we want your dental work to be beautiful and natural looking, we want it to last as long as possible, and we want to provide a comfortable and convenient experience.

Digital X-Rays

At My Dentist for Life, our patients love that we offer digital x-rays. Digital x-rays use less radiation than traditional x-rays, making them safer, and more convenient as they can be taken and viewed right from the dental chair in a matter of moments!

3D Imaging

3D imaging technology has revolutionized modern dentistry and radically transformed the way that dentists gather information and treatment plan. Whether you have impacted wisdom teeth or chronic jaw pain, need implants placed, or more complex reconstructive work, traditional x-rays may not be sufficient. Cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray technology that produces 3D images, rather than traditional 2D x-rays. Cone beam x-rays give us a whole new dimension of insight into your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and jaw bones. Our Galileos scanner works seamlessly with our CEREC® milling machine to digitally design and create restorations in a single visit. 3D imaging technology helps us better diagnose and treat oral health problems with high precision accuracy.

Intra Oral Camera

In the not-so-distant past, the only way we could really get a good look at the surfaces of your mouth was through the magic of sight, with the help of our trusted dental mirrors. Today, at My Dentist for Life, we have intra oral cameras to help us better detect oral problems like decay and disease. A tiny camera can get a high resolution view of your entire mouth, and you can view on the screen alongside the doctor.

CEREC® Same Day Restorations

Your Fort Lauderdale dentist, Dr. Rizvi, is so excited to offer patients the convenience of CEREC® same day restorations. Our CEREC® milling machine allows us to fabricate and place dental restorations (crowns, bridges) in a single appointment! No more waiting periods, no more temporary restorations, restore your smile in one visit to My Dentist for Life!

Laser Cavity Detection

Detecting cavities is one of those things dentists used to only be able to do through the magic of sight. Today, with our Diagnodent® laser cavity detection technology, we use a tiny laser light to detect minor changes in tooth enamel, and illuminate areas of decay.

Laser Dentistry

Laser technology is slowly taking over the dental industry, and we are seeing a shift from traditional, invasive surgical procedures to laser therapy – understandably so. Lasers allow for high-precision accuracy, and faster recovery time without the use of scalpels and sutures. Our Picasso® laser technology helps us perform a variety of soft-tissue and periodontal procedures with ease.

Patient Education

At My Dentist for Life, we put patient education at the forefront of our practice. We want to give you the tools you need to keep your mouth healthy for life. That’s why we’ve adopted the DDS GP® patient education application. DDS GP® is an iPad® app developed to help dentists be more effective in explaining dental conditions to help patients better understand their oral health.

Patient Comfort

If you are or would like to become a patient at My Dentist for Life, you can rest assured that your comfort is our top priority. To ensure your appointment is comfortable and you enjoy your time with us, we are happy to provide music options, TVs, and iPads® in all of our operatory rooms. Who knows, you might even enjoy coming to the dentist!
