Exceptional Dental Care Since 1985

The Highest Standard of Quality Treatment

Early Cavity Detection

Advanced system identifies lesions, cracks and cavities that to the eye in some cases cannot be seen. Early detection means less invasive treatment and usually less cost.

Oral Cancer Screening

This oral cancer screening device helps to detect early tissue changes which could be pre-cancerous. Oral Cancer is a very aggressive disease and the 5th leading cause of death in the USA. Early detection is vital to your health.

Diode Laser

Laser dental therapy allows for higher precision, better healing and shorter recovery with dental procedures. From complex cases of smile design to treating oral lesions and non-surgical treatment of gum disease, the dental laser is the next generation in high quality, painless dental care.

Digital Imaging & Restorations

Digital x-rays, intra-oral cameras, intra-oral scanners, and CAD/CAM in dentistry are revolutionizing the restorative and diagnostic experience for patients. Digital imaging helps reduce patient discomfort and the amount of visits necessary to complete treatment.

Early detection

Cavities detection and prevention

 
There is an old adage – “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Nowhere is this truer than in dentistry. By using the latest technology to detect problems earlier, we are able to help our patients preserve natural tooth structure, avoid unnecessary pain and discomfort, prevent more advanced problems from developing which usually saves both patients time and money. Some of the best advances in this early detection include...

Importance of Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer statistics are changing and unfortunately not for the better.

In 2016, there were approximately 48,000 new cases in the United States and worldwide over 450,000.

2018 statistics estimate that 103,000 new cases of oral cancer will be diagnosed annually in the US with only 50% survival rate for 5 years.* Oral & Head/Neck Cancer is the 5th leading cause of death in the US annually.

Early detection and treatment of cancer related lesions increases the survival rate of patients. At Dr. Filler’s office, we value and encourage regular oral cancer screening for all our patients. This is included as part of our regular periodic and initial examination fee and is meant to enhance your patient experience and peace of mind.

PART OF OUR REGULAR DENTAL EXAMINATION

Oral Cancer Screening

We utilize the ViziLite PRO Oral Lesion Screening System as part of our Oral Cancer Screening procedures. This screening device features light-based fluorescence, which helps to detect early tissue changes which could be pre-cancerous. Fluorescence designed visualization from this new device, provides information that is fundamentally different from what clinicians see when they look in the mouth with reflected standard white lighting.

Screening with the ViziLite Pro is easy and painless for our patients. Utilizing the ViziLite Pro allows our team to detect damaged or abnormal cells earlier than they would have been noticed using a normal clinical exam only.
If you have any questions about oral cancer, please speak with Dr. Filler or one of our Windham dental team members today.

Understanding the Diode Laser

 

Dental lasers have proven themselves highly beneficial in treating a variety of concerns. Lasers can be effectively used in cosmetic procedures such as to correct a “gummy” smile and give a longer, more natural look to your teeth. Additionally, dental lasers can help treat canker and cold sores and other oral lesions quickly and painlessly. Using the laser in the treatment of periodontal (gum) helps effectively kill the local bacteria involved in the periodontal infection and even can help stimulate new bone growth where bone has been lost due to the disease process. We actively use dental lasers because they are a highly effective and virtually pain free way to restore health to your mouth.

High Tech Instrument

Diode Laser

 
The laser is a new high tech instrument, usable for many procedures that previously required a referral to a specialist. Lasers are used from treating decayed teeth to complex cases of cosmetic and aesthetic smile designs, to non-surgical treatment of gum disease. Dr. Filler has incorporated the use of lasers in many phases of dentistry.


The best practice for diagnosis and treatment

Digital Imaging and Restorations

 

Our offices use digital imaging to diagnose as well as treat many dental conditions. Diagnostically, we use digital x-rays and intra-oral photos to help patients see what we see in their mouths. Restoratively, we use scanning software to replace a traditional dental impression with a digital image. Dental impressions earned a reputation of being uncomfortable for patients and dental scanners make all that disappear, as well as being highly accurate. Those scans can then be sent directly to a lab or used within our office to fabricate your restoration while you wait, eliminating repeat visits to the dentist for the same procedure. We use the premiere scanning and imaging softwares in our office to give our patients both convenience with optimal results.
