Technology & Patient Comforts

When you visit Dr. Wei’s Midtown Manhattan dental office, you’ll feel like a treasured guest. We offer coffee, tea, and juice in our beverage bar, apples, and sugar- free candies. Aromatic candles create a welcoming ambiance of tranquility and relaxation. In the treatment room, you can watch a movie or listen to music with noise-canceling Bose headphones. Ask for a warm neck pillow to make yourself even more cozy during your time in the dental chair. And before you leave, be sure to freshen up with a warm, scented towel.

Dr. Wei and our team have invested in the training and experience to bring our Midtown Manhattan patients many state-of-the-art dental technologies and comforts. These include intraoral cameras and chairside monitors for convenient viewing and accurate diagnoses. Intraoral cameras allow us to project an image of an individual tooth or area of concern onto a chairside viewing monitor for use as a visual aid. Digital imaging allows us to show you what your new smile could look like before you commit to treatment, We’ll take digital X-rays for a comprehensive view of your teeth and supporting structures. Digital X-rays emit about 90% less radiation than traditional radiography, and the images can be quickly and easily transmitted via the Internet to insurance companies and specialists. Furthermore, we use an electric hand piece, which produces less noise and heat than a traditional dental drill.

Anesthesia injections are comfortable with VibraJet, a device that distracts nerves to create a virtually pain-free shot. We also offer nitrous oxide, better known as laughing gas. As a sedation dentist, Dr. Wei can prescribe oral medication to make patients completely relax during treatment. We have recently introduced the STA system into our practice which will help those patients who are fearful of injections. The STA system is a computer controlled local anesthetic delivery system. It is an innovative, clinically proven way to achieve more precise and pain-free injections. This results in higher patient comfort levels.

The Midwest I.D. handpiece is a high tech aid in identifying cavities in molars and pre-molars. This special handpiece is recommended for detection of cavities in pits and fissures and interproximal areas on posterior teeth that have not been restored.
