Neuromuscular Dentistry

Neuromuscular dentistry is the art and science of using the relaxed position of facial muscles to place the jaw in its optimal position. 30 years of research and clinical trials have shown this TMJ treatment technique to be very effective in eliminating chronic migraines and neck pain.

Placing the jaw optimally before performing restorative dentistry also increases the lifetime of any dental work you have, and protects your natural teeth. Dr. Ziv is one of very few dentists accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry who has extensive training and experience in neuromuscular dentistry.

To provide neuromuscular dental treatment your dentist has to have completed many hours of specialized continuing education. Dentist in Agoura Hills, Dr Ziv is a Fellow of the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), and is fully trained in bite correction and full mouth restoration.

Neuromuscular dentistry uses computerized instrumentation to measure the patient’s jaw movements and muscle activity. Prior to establishing the correct bite, muscles are relaxed using TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator).

Digital X-Rays

There is no comparison between the old fashioned dental x-rays which your dentist placed on a light box to view, and digital x-rays which can be manipulated, and enlarged at will to aid the dentist in making informed treatment decisions.

Same Day Dental Implants

The other advantage of a digital x-ray is that it can be shared via email to outside specialists at the touch of a button, and each image is a crisp original – vs. non-digital x-rays where resolution is lost when copied.

DIAGNOdent®

Among other techniques, Dr. Ziv uses a DIAGNOdent® laser to detect cavities in their earliest stages. When detected early enough, cavities can be removed and teeth can be restored without the use of a drill–isn’t that great news?

TMJ Treatment

Though we have the skills and experience to turn a troubled mouth into a stunning smile through cosmetic dentistry, the goal at our Agoura Hills office is to help you maintain the health and natural sparkle of your original teeth. Dr. Ziv takes advantage of the DIAGNOdent® laser’s ability to detect cavities early on, saving you time and money!

Global Surgical™ Microscope

Dentist Westlake Village

For an up-close and extremely accurate view of your teeth, Dr. Ziv uses a dental microscope from Global Surgical™. Global Surgical™ products are used by more dentists around the world than any other company.

This is because their technology allows exceptionally detailed work for an exquisite result. This microscope helps Dr. Ziv examine your teeth before and after procedures, making sure nothing was missed. Accuracy and efficiency are the names of this game!

i-CAT Dental Imaging and CT Technology

When it comes to dental imaging, Dr. Ziv uses only the best: the i-CAT Dental Imaging system. This revolutionary piece of equipment allows quick and easy imaging of critical anatomical information, while reducing the cost and exposure to radiation for patients.

A typical scan time is under 10 seconds, with digital photos ready in less than 30 seconds! These high-definition, three-dimensional photos enhance the overall care Dr. Ziv is able to provide to his patients a technique that sets him apart from other dentists and oral surgeons.

Use of in-office CT technology enables Dr. Ziv to take a single CT scan and then view pictures of the teeth and jaw from multiple angles. By splicing these images into a detailed, three-dimensional image, Dr. Ziv is able to plan implant surgery and ensure the implant is placed in its optimal position.

The use of CT technology allows for beautiful results and reduced recovery time. Make an appointment today with our dentist in Agoura Hills today and see how fast and easy digital imaging is with the i-CAT system and his CT technology.
