At Maitland Ave Smile Co., we are committed to improving the patient experience in every way that we can. Incorporating a vast range of advanced technology into our practice allows us to deliver your dental care more efficiently and accurately than ever before.
Digital technology is proven to enhance the overall patient experience, allow for shorter dental visits, and improve treatment success rates. We incorporate cutting edge dental technology to aid in the treatment planning and execution of many cosmetic, general and restorative dentistry treatments.
Cone Beam CT
Cone Beam CT is an advanced imaging device that produces a 3D view of the teeth, bone structure, soft tissues, and the maxillofacial region. In many cases, CBCT vastly enhances our team’s ability to assesses, evaluate, and treat patients with advanced dental issues. This technology is often used to evaluate bone structure, aid in the placement of dental implants, locate wisdom teeth, and many other restorative dentistry procedures.
You can now receive same day dental crowns with the help of CEREC. At our Altamonte Springs dentist office, you can now get custom designed dental crowns during one visit to our office. With CEREC, we can take a digital image of the tooth which is then sent to our in-office CEREC machine. We use the images of the tooth to create a 3-D model which we then use to create your custom dental crown. The outline of your crown design is sent to our in-office milling unit which will then produce your final crown.
Before securing your crown, we will check it for accuracy and make any final adjustments. You can enjoy the benefits of your new smile immediately after your visit.

Digital dental x-rays are becoming the standard in modern dental care. They allow our team to forgo the need for traditional x-rays, therefore limiting the amount of radiation a patient is exposed to. We can gain a more accurate view of the intended x-ray site which aids in identifying dental issues and improving the treatment planning phase.
To help aid us in the early detection of many oral problems, we use the intraoral camera. An intraoral camera is a tiny camera that is designed to gain a comprehensive view of your mouth. It is intended to move comfortably in the mouth and allow us to spot any dysfunction in the mouth, which helps us create a more detailed treatment plan.
Guided Implant Surgery
The importance of properly placing a dental implant is highly discussed in modern dentistry. With guided implant surgery, dentists can now place implants with improved accuracy and precision. In guided implant surgery, we use CBCT technology and intraoral oral cameras to gain a comprehensive view of the mouth, teeth, bone structure, and joints.
Using the information obtained from CBCT scan and our intraoral cameras, we can create a digital treatment plan in which we locate the best area for the placement of your dental implants; this creates a level of accuracy not typically provided with free hand implant placement.
