Learn About Our Dental Technology
Here are some of the advanced tools and techniques Dr. Dolgos uses to provide his patients with the most precise, comfortable, and effective dental procedures in the Buffalo area.
Dr. Dolgos Offers Comfortable Laser Dentistry
Treating Hard and Soft Tissues
Dr. Dolgos uses the latest laser technology during dentistry procedures. He can treat hard and soft tissues with greater precision, comfort, and safety than the drills, scalpels, and tools of the past.
The Waterlase™ system combines water, air, and laser energy. It can gently treat tooth structure and gum tissue, and may not require the use of anesthetic. Our LANAP® laser is an excellent option for treating diseased gum tissue with a high degree of accuracy.
Laser TMJ Treatment
In addition to treating the teeth and gums, this advanced dental technology can be used in TMJ treatment. Laser biostimulation can relax the jaw muscles and help relieve pain in the process.
Our Dentist is a
Laser Dentistry Educator
Dr. Dolgos is uniquely qualified to offer laser dentistry procedures. He is a certified instructor at the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry where he still teaches laser physics and LANAP protocols.
Digital Scanning and Impressions
Our Buffalo area dentist uses i-CAT™ FLX scanning technology. i-CAT FLX takes amazingly detailed 3D X-rays of the teeth, jaw, and cranium. The state-of-the-art system uses much less radiation than old fashioned X-rays. The resulting images can help Dr. Dolgos analyze the points of contact between each tooth, and how other dental problems affect the overall function of your teeth and other structures of the mouth.
Some old-school dentists still take dental impressions using uncomfortable trays and messy putty. Dr. Dolgos uses high-tech digital imaging and scanning technology instead. With a simple handheld tool, he can take high-resolution scans of your mouth. These advanced digital impressions provide a vastly detailed look at each tooth. This is crucial for crafting a custom oral appliance that fits your smile just right.
3D Printing in Dentistry
In the past, dentists relied on off-site dental labs to create custom mouth guards and retainers. Thanks to 3D printing and CAD/CAM technology, Dr. Dolgos can create a custom oral appliance at his Orchard Park dental practice. Our on-site 3D printed oral appliances are durable, high-quality, and can be checked for fit while the patient is present. Dr. Dolgos has years of top-level training, education, and experience when it comes to designing and crafting a mouth guard that can treat your dental health symptoms.
Advanced Sleep Apnea Home Studies and Treatment
- Sleep apnea can disrupt your ability to get a restful night's sleep. This disorder can be caused by collapsed throat muscles that block your upper airway while you sleep. This results in loud snoring and gasping for air numerous times during the night. Your bed partner's sleep can also be disturbed by your sleep apnea. Sleep apnea contributes to all kinds of health issues, including daytime fatigue, memory problems, depression, concentration difficulties, and diabetes.
- Dr. Dolgos may recommend a WatchPAT® Home Sleep Apnea Test (HSAT). This convenient at-home sleep study is a comfortable way to diagnose the severity of your sleep apnea. WatchPAT eliminates the need for a professional sleep study in which you spend the the night wired up to various machines at an outside lab. WatchPAT is a data-recording, watch-like device worn on your wrist while you sleep. Unlike other at-home sleep apnea monitors, no uncomfortable wires are connected to your head or face. The WatchPAT sensors silently record your snoring, body movements, heart rate, and the number of breathing interruptions you experienced.
- Your sleep study is collected and analyzed by trusted sleep apnea experts. From there, Dr. Dolgos can design a customized sleep apnea mouth guard. The oral appliance will gently push your lower jaw forward, opening your upper airway to improve breathing and reduce sleep apnea symptoms. Oral appliance therapy for sleep apnea is much easier and more comfortable than the use of a noisy CPAP machine. And FYI, the data collected during your home sleep study can be submitted to your insurance company to help you get coverage for treatment.
