Advanced Dental Technology for Accurate, Comfortable Care
Dr. Bruce Gopin and his team use the latest dental technology at their El Paso, TX, practice to provide comfortable, efficient care. DentalVibe® is a unique injection system that allows us to administer pain-free injections of local anesthesia. We also utilize sophisticated imaging technology, including a 3-D scanner, to assess the health of your jaws and tooth roots. If the thought of visiting the dentist makes you feel anxious, you can trust that our advanced technology is designed to minimize discomfort.

DentalVibe® is especially beneficial for patients who suffer from dental anxiety or fear of injections. Dr. Gopin will apply this handheld tool to the surface of your gums, and it will emit a gentle vibration. After a few seconds, he will then administer the injection of anesthesia. However, your brain will register the vibrations first and will block the sensation of the injection. As a result, you will feel almost nothing as you receive the anesthesia. Additionally, the vibrations will help to diffuse the anesthesia so that it spreads and takes effect more quickly.
Our 3-D scanners are an essential part of our approach to surgery. Although x-rays are important, they reveal a limited amount of your oral structure. A 3-D scanner works similarly to a traditional x-ray machine. It will emit cone-shaped beams of light to capture a multi-dimensional picture of your bite. The imaging process is non-invasive and takes only a few minutes. Because the machine is digital, the scans also provide limited radiation exposure.
3-D imaging provides a more comprehensive assessment of your bite.
The resulting panoramic images will show your jawbone, nerves, soft tissues, and sinus cavities. Evaluating these images, Dr. Gopin can look for signs of bone and gum recession. Based on the health of your gum tissues, he can determine whether you need a bone graft or sinus lift prior to another dental surgery procedure. 3-D scans are especially important in performing dental implant surgery. Working with these images, Dr. Gopin can determine exactly where to place the implant posts, reducing the impact to your jaw and limiting your discomfort and recovery time. When used by an experienced oral surgeon, 3-D scans will also greatly reduce your risk for nerve or sinus damage.
