New & Modern Technology in Our Office

Toledo Periodontics is determined to offer the newest technology to provide you with the most modern treatment in a safe environment.  Here are some examples of this new technology:

1. Your safety first, state of the art A-DEC sterilization center At A-DEC, streamlining processes in the dental practice is always a key design requirement for the advanced dental equipment. A-DEC Sterilization Center is no exception. Preference ICC is a complete system designed to help simplify maintenance and sterilization protocols. Preference ICC offers our team a smoother process, increased efficiency and—best of all—a more pleasant experience for our office, our team and the safety of our patients.

2. Vista water purification system that exceeds the CDC and OSHA requirements Vista Clear dental waterline treatment system: The Vista Clear system is intended to provide improved water quality and reduce bacterial contamination in dental unit waterlines used for irrigation, cooling, lubrication and scaling procedures.  Even though it is not required by the law to have this extensive system, our full commitment to offer the safest water to our patients is considered a must.

“The dental profession must continue its awareness of the presence of high levels of opportunistic microorganisms in dental unit water. Despite the lack of evidence of adverse health effects related to these microorganisms, they have the potential to overload the defense systems of immunocompromised patients and occupationally exposed dental staff members. Steps should be taken to improve dental unit water quality; contact of a patient’s open wound, mucous membrane or body cavity with water of poor microbiological quality simply is inconsistent with patient expectations of modern dentistry. Efforts should continue to evaluate the health implications of biofilms in dentistry as new technology, research and data become available.”
