Why do patients choose Dr. Glass?

Our office in Gaithersburg, Md. combines the warmth and friendliness sometimes lacking in typical dental settings with cutting edge technology. In this way, we can offer you and your family both a comforting, relaxed environment and results that will satisfy your dental needs, endure for many years, and in many cases astound you. Some of the advanced dental technology we employ is listed below:

Allows us to design, mill, and install crowns, inlays, and veneers in a single session made from high strength Emax lithium di-silicate ceramic. This eliminates the need for a temporary crown and the need to come in for a second visit to complete the work. This state of the art system is similar in concept to the Cerec 3D Cad/Cam system by Sirona but is considered by many experts to be more accurate and advanced and to produce better results.
This general purpose surgical laser allows the doctor to perform soft tissue surgeries quickly and efficiently with minimal bleeding, enhanced patient comfort, and accelerated healing. Replaces "cold steel" instruments like the scalpel for many surgical applications.
Dexis Digital X-ray, by DexisDexis manufactures a state of the art digital X-ray sensor and software that permits us to acquire superior X-ray images of selected areas that offer better resolution and less X-ray exposure than conventional x-rays, and therefore allow us to be more accurate in diagnosisand treatment planning. Facilitates making high quality copies which we can send over the Internet or print as needed for referral purposes.
An advanced surgical implant placement system for routine dental implant surgery. In uncomplicated cases we can perform implant surgical placement in our Gaithersburg office. This eliminates the need to see a surgical specialist for routine implant work. Another advantage is that the same person who will be restoring the implant to function after healing is the one deciding where it should be placed for ease of restoration.
This is an advanced rotary (mechanized) root canal system utilizing very flexible nickel/titanium alloy instruments for canal cleaning and shaping and warm gutta percha for canal obturation. This results in rapid, predictable, and high quality endodontic treatment in a single sitting. Please note that Dr. Glass refers patients for molar endodontics but can usually do single or double rooted teeth in the office.
This device is a laser fluorescence scanner used to test suspicious areas in the pits and fissures of tooth enamel for the presence of dental caries (decay or cavities). Normal, intact tooth structure has a low fluorescence value, but carious areas fluoresce more strongly. When using the Diagnodent, we first calibrate the device to the fluorescence baseline of intact tooth structure, then measurements are made of suspicious areas, and the problem areas cause a high meter reading and an audible alarm. This machine allows detection of cavities sooner than conventional methods, when they are easiest to treat.
