E4D – Crowns in One Day!
The E4D Dentist System provides Dr. Fischer and Dr. Alconcel with the capability of delivering same day dentistry to you using the latest in technology. E4D Dentist enables us to scan the prepared tooth in your mouth with a camera/scanning wand, virtually design the final restoration on a computer with advanced design software and then send information wirelessly to an in-office milling station where your restoration is milled with precision, using diamond burs. Dr. Fischer and Dr. Alconcel can then adjust, characterize with color or polish your restoration to final luster. Your permanent restoration will be ready to be seated in your mouth on the same day—even within a single appointment. This eliminates the need to wear a temporary tooth for weeks at a time!
“I recently had a crown done in your office and want you to know how impressed I was with the surprisingly fast and painless design and placement of my crown, with completion in less than 3 hours. It was very convenient to have the entire procedure completed in one visit. I have always been a nervous patient, but I must tell you that the experience was physically and emotionally pleasant. Dr. Fischer, you and your staff are always professional, positive and patient oriented. You have my total confidence and trust. Thank you for helping me overcome my fear of dental work.” – Sincerely, P. D.
“Wow! It’s a breeze… I would highly recommend for any patient that can use this new technology. The convenience of having the entire procedure done in one day is fabulous. They even let me watch the crown being manufactured. Thank you for keeping up with the latest and greatest technology!” – T. D.

We strive to provide all of our patients with the highest quality and the most advanced dental care. With this in mind, we have a piece of equipment to help you better understand and “see” your dental health. Advances in modern video camera equipment have allowed dental manufacturers to develop a very small video camera for use in the dental office. With a camera about the size of a pen, we can film your mouth and present it as an image on a monitor that is magnified 10-40 times its natural size.
See for yourself the kind of care you need! For years, we have described diseases of the teeth and gums and drawn pictures to attempt to illustrate the problem and the needed treatment. The old adage, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” could not be truer when using the intraoral camera. A sterilized, small, probe-shaped camera is moved around the inside of your mouth. This will provide you with a tooth-by-tooth video exam of your teeth, where you can see your teeth enlarged in living color on our computer screen during your appointment. We can freeze and store the picture of the inside of your mouth for a bigger and better look and then take an instant photograph for you and your records.
This painless, no-radiation technique allows you to see problems such as worn-out, defective fillings, fractured teeth, decay, bleeding gums and plaque. Also, the intraoral camera allows us to see things that may not appear with a traditional X-ray and can help us detect minor problems before they become more significant. Together, we can discuss a treatment plan for restoring your mouth to optimal health.
Spectra Caries Detection Aid
Using fluorescence technology, the Spectra unit emits safe, high-energy LED light onto the tooth surface. The dentist or hygienist then views the tooth on a screen, which clearly displays both a color and numerical reading to precisely indicate the existence and extent of any decay, calculus or bacteria.
To improve your care, we have invested in a new way of looking into your mouth—a procedure that’s fast and incredibly precise: digital X-rays. Digital X-rays are computer-generated images, with 90% less radiation than conventional film type X-rays. What’s even more amazing is that we get an image immediately that is large, clear and accurate, and the files are sent right next to your chair, ready for discussion. The computer allows enlargement, highlighting, magnifying, inverting, clear-viewing, color-coding and contrasting of X-ray photos for educational purposes.
For insurance purposes, referrals or patient education, a digital radiograph can be accurately reproduced any number of times. This new technology adds further benefits for our patients. We can detect cavities far better than with the old system, and sooner and smaller than ever before. That means that we can correct them sooner and easier for you, before they seriously weaken the tooth. In summary, digital X-rays are faster and allow us to provide better quality care.
The different types of X-rays we take here include:
- Bitewing: These show the crowns of several upper and lower teeth on one small film. This type of X-ray is especially useful for showing cavities between teeth and changes in bone caused by periodontal disease.
- Periapical: This X-ray shows entire teeth, including all of the roots and surrounding tissues on one small film. These X-rays show many kinds of disorders, including impacted teeth, fractures, abscesses, cysts and tumors.
- Full-mouth series: This is a complete set of bitewing and periapical X-rays that show all of the teeth, roots and related areas of the jaws. This consists of 18 X-ray pictures. This full-mouth series is taken once every 3-5 years.
The Denar® Cadiax® Compact is a state-of the-art diagnostic instrument that provides a comprehensive, functional analysis of jaw relations. The articulator, which is programmed to the individual patient’s chewing pattern, allows Dr. Fischer to reproduce functional chewing surfaces corresponding to the “natural” dentition. The recording process takes less than ten minutes.
The T-Scan® III is the only system available to measure dental occlusal forces and quantify how well balanced a patient’s occlusion is. Because the T-Scan® III can measure force over time, it is an indispensable tool for appraising the sequential relationships of a mandibular excursion. In other words, Dr. Fischer can view a patient’s jaw movement and see a visual display of force on the patient’s teeth in a type of movie format that he can replay on the computer screen so you can view it with him. This is instrumental in locating occlusal interferences, determining the relative force on each interference, and evaluating the potential for trauma caused by the occlusal interferences.
For over 20 years, Dr. Fischer has been, by far, the best dental care professional I have ever had. I’m always impressed with Dr. Fischer’s professionalism and the personable manner in which he explains to me his findings and any required treatments.” – William
