Dentistry has been improved by technology in astounding ways. Recent advancements permit existing treatments to be refined,
speeding your healing and increasing your comfort. Earlier detection means less-invasive treatment. Improved precision during
dental procedures equals shorter recovery times. At Westshore Dentistry, we’re excited to share these new advances with our patients.
75% Reduction in Radiation
Digital X-rays generate viewable images that are not possible with conventional film systems. A digital sensor slipped
inside your mouth captures the images and displays them on a monitor, without chemical developers. With digital X-rays,
there is no more lag time while film is developed. In addition, this new technology lowers your exposure to radiation by
75% as compared to conventional non-digital X-rays. Because no developing chemicals are required, this style of X-ray is
also environmentally friendly. We can also perform panoramic digital X-rays that provide a full image of your teeth and
jaws in one shot.
Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the Team
Dr. Motwani wants your dental health decisions to be informed. To that end, he employs the use of a high-tech tool, the
intra-oral camera. This tiny video camera provides a detailed look at the interior of your mouth, projecting the display
onto a view screen. Now, you can see for yourself what work needs to be achieved and which teeth are doing fine. You’ll
love how this works!
The Cleanest Your Teeth Can Be
Removing plaque and tartar from your teeth typically requires hook-shaped scaling instruments to scrape away the hardened
deposits. In our office, we can use an ultrasonic scaler. This hand tool employs high-frequency vibrations to allow us to
quickly strip deposits from the surface, under the gumline, and even in the deep pockets of your teeth with a lot less
discomfort. Your teeth will have never felt so clean!
We are proud to work with a local company to provide 3-D cone beam CT digital imaging technology to our patients. Three-dimensional
ultra cone beam images allow for greater precision than flat, two-dimensional X-ray images, with lower radiation exposure.
Dr. Motwani’s ability to clearly see his patient’s anatomy permits better evaluations, leading to less invasive treatment,
which is an advantage during implant placement and oral surgeries.
The Highest Level of Accuracy and Precision
The 3Shape™ TRIOS intra-oral scanner allows us to take three-dimensional impressions for crowns and bridges, inlays
and onlays, veneers, clear aligners, mouthguards, and a variety of other procedures. Best of all, this digital scanner
replaces the squishy, sticky, putty tray impression. We think you’ll love this scanner! You spend less time at the dentist’s
office and more time enjoying your new smile.
Headache and Migraine Suffers – We May Have Your Miracle Treatment!

migraines? It’s true! In clinical trials of the NTI™ device, 82% of migraine sufferers experienced headache relief, with a

migraine and tension headaches. It’s painless, fast, and inexpensive! If you experience migraines, or know someone who does,
then be sure to contact us today about this exciting new treatment.
Dr. Motwani values your continued good health, so sterilization is taken very seriously in our office. Single-use tools are
used whenever possible. In addition, metal instruments are sterilized after each use with a special unit called an autoclave,
which is routinely inspected by an independent lab to ensure the highest level of safety and cleanliness. Your health is too
important to us to take even the slightest risk.
Nothing beats an easier, more comfortable dental visit. If you have questions about the latest dental technology, give us a call today at 941-932-8633.
