CEREC® Omnicam 3D Printing


CAD/CAM stands for Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Milling (CAM). 3D images can be uploaded into special CAD software, allowing the dentist to evaluate the exact details of the appearance and function of the restoration.  This software can also help the patient to visualize the end result of the proposed restoration.

Once the design is finalized, the files are sent to the CAM system for fabrication of the restoration to the exact specifications of the design.  Use of CAD/CAM technology increases efficiency and accuracy, and can often reduce the overall number of patient visits needed.

Pain Free Anesthesia


Getting someone numb to prepare for dental treatment should not be painful. With special techniques that Dr Koppelman has created, pain free anesthesia is possible.

For some, the worst part of any treatment is the idea of a painful injection.  Coupling his specialized techniquest with specialized topical numbing medicines, Dr. Koppelman is able to provide each patient a gentle touch while delivering injections and anesthesia essentially pain free. 


Isolite System


Let’s face it, keeping your mouth open for any oral medical procedure can be tiring.  Utilizing the Isolite Sytem is just one of the many ways available at Koppelman Dental that can provide comfortable treatment. The Isolite system allows you to gently place your mouth and jaw in a rested placement rather than staying open.  The days of your dentist saying “Stay open, and open wider” are no more at our office.  Isolite also prevents any cross contamination, allowing for smoother care and allowing the new fillings the best chance of long term success by preventing any contamination.  Keeping to the highest standard of protocol, we have designed a system to allow for comfort through every step of the way.


Nitrous Oxide


In our office, we offer nervous patients nitrous oxide, also known nicknamed “laughing gas,” as a solution for dental anxiety. With its anxiolytic, relaxing properties, nitrous oxide can help make patients more comfortable during treatment. 


Digital X-Ray


Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays.  The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment.  Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film.  Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care.  It’s also a very green technology.  By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste it is better for you and the environment!

Prophy-Jet Polishers


Traditionally, teeth are polished using a rotating rubber cup and an abrasive paste. Prophy-jet polishing, however, uses an air polishing system with a combination of pressurized water and baking soda to remove more stubborn stains. 


Oral Cancer Screening


Oral cancer affects thousands of Americans yearly. We use the latest technology to detect changes in oral tissue consistencies and/or lesions. A specialized light is shined into the mouth to detect unhealthy tissue. Healthy tissue looks lighter under the light while spots of bad tissue appear dark. With early detection, cancer may be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives.
