4 Reasons Our Dentists Use the Latest Dental Technology

The dentists at Cary Prosthodontics use state-of-the-art digital software to create precise and effective treatment plans for their patients. Our dentists use specialized dentistry software for designing crowns, bridges, and dentures, as well as 3D digital scanners to ensure every step of treatment meets your needs.

Efficient Results

At Cary Prosthodontics in Cary, NC, we can make a wide range of dental restorations on-site to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Our in-office milling system uses zirconia, one of the most aesthetic and durable materials available for crafting beautifully customized dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Improved Flexibility and Longevity

Dr. Kofford is not just a skilled dentist. He has also trademarked a unique system that allows him to create a new denture in less than a week, or even convert your existing denture to an implant-supported one. Our system allows for a level of flexibility and control which is not available anywhere else in the Raleigh, NC, area.

Quicker Results

We know your time is valuable. That is why we use advanced dental technology such as instant digital X-rays, in-house restoration milling, and intraoral cameras to speed up patient exams, offer fast, precise diagnosis, and create restorations during a single appointment.

I want to deeply thank Dr Kofford and his team for all they've done for me. I had a very complex dental case that took a lot of trial to find the best solution for me. They always treated me like family. After a lot of their hard work, patience, and dedication I finally feel discomfort-free and can eat the food I couldn't before. I am very grateful to know them and to be their patient’s. Best regards and gratitude, Sofiya.

Precise Details Thanks to Dental Technology

Our State-of-the-Art Dental Technology

Cary Prosthodontics features some of the most high-tech equipment, software, and materials in the field of dentistry. These advances are invaluable when it comes to diagnosing a patient's oral health issues such as cavities or gum disease. They also aid in the design, creation, and placement of dental implants, dentures, crowns, and bridges.

Digital X-Rays

This technology allows our dentists to take incredibly precise oral images and view them instantly. These X-rays use much less radiation than traditional ones, and since no film is involved, harmful chemicals are not needed to develop the images.

CBCT Scanning Technology

Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) provides our dentists with a 3D view of your jawbone showing both the bone and soft tissues in your mouth. This is an important aid in the efficient placement of dental implants. 

Dental Scanning Technology

This high-precision dentistry software allows our dentists to design and modify dental restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures that can complete your smile and improve oral functions. 

3D Printed Dental Restorations

Dental restorations such as crowns and dentures can also be created using our cutting-edge 3D printing technology. Our Cary, NC, office also uses 3D printing for prototypes of your final restoration. 

Yomi Robotic Dental Implants

The Yomi® robot-assisted system provides our dentists with navigational guidance during dental implant surgery, ensuring implants are placed exactly as planned and reducing the risks associated with freehand surgery. 

More About the Yomi System

Yomi provides our dentists with touch feedback during surgery, helping our dentists determine the precise location, angle, and depth for implant placement. Your dentist still performs all parts of surgery. Like using a navigation app on a road trip, the Yomi system provides guidance to the "driver" but does not perform the actual operation. 

The Smart Denture Protocol

Our three visit protocol combines all the advantages of digital design to create highly aesthetic and long-lasting dentures. In addition, the design of your new or upgraded denture is saved into our system, allowing us to make alterations or create a new restoration with ease.

We can process a brand-new denture on-site so you do not have to wait for your restoration to be sent back and forth between our office and an off-site lab. Upgrading an existing denture typically takes about a week.

How Does the Smart Denture Protocol Work? We Can Convert an Existing Denture in 3 Easy Steps

Upgrading an existing denture typically takes about a week.
Upgrading an existing denture typically takes about a week.

Getting Started

Our doctors will first use your existing denture as an impression tray, allowing you to bypass several steps of the traditional denture process. We can reline your dentures during this appointment, so you can enjoy instant improvement. Then, we will digitize your denture into our system.

The Prototype

We will carefully adjust the digital version of your denture and print a unique prototype, then test its fit and appearance. This new version of your denture will act as a final impression tray.

New Denture Delivery

Within about five days, our team will have your new denture ready for final application. A digital copy of your denture will be saved, so that if your denture becomes damaged a new version can be created quickly and easily. We can also use this process to convert your existing denture to an implant-supported restoration.

The New Dentures "needed no adjustments or adhesive"

"Cary Prosthodontics is a wonderful experience . They make you feel like family. I actually look forward to going there. They are painless, patient, kind and concerned. I received upper and lower dentures and needed no adjustments or adhesive. I can eat anything in comfort. I never thought that I would be so happy to go to the dentist. They are the best beyond compare." Chris Butler
