At Ariyana Dental, multilingual dentist Dr. Arthur Abdiyev uses technology like Panorex imaging, which gives a 360-degree view of infections or structural issues in teeth, sinuses, and bones. He also wields dental cosmetics technology such as thin porcelain lumineers and a safe whitening gel by BriteSmile that activates under low-intensity light. To detect tooth and gum issues, Dr. Abdiyev relies on an intraoral camera, which facilitates views of the mouth that mirrors or open-mouth screams cannot, as well as digital x-rays, which reveal invisible structures for examination on a computer. He also fights decay with pediatric sealants, and extracts wisdom teeth, grafts bones, and performs surgery on gums. Upon spotting flaws in individual teeth, he springs to action with the CEREC machine, which rapidly sculpts or restores compressed porcelain crowns and inlays during one visit.
