Our Technology

Dr. Lucy Slutsky utilizes the latest in dental technology and equipment to ensure that each patient achieves optimal treatment results. Some of the state of the art technology we offer in our Pompton Lakes dental office includes, digital x-rays, intra-oral digital photography,  computer-controlled local anesthetic delivery and visual treatment plan presentation software.

Digital X-Rays

Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays.  This technique uses an electronic sensor (instead of x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer.  This image can be instantly viewed and enlarged helping the dentist and dental hygienist detect problems easier.  Digital x-rays reduce radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.

Carestream CBCT Scanner

Our new Carestream Cone Beam CAT Scan emits much less radiation compared to a regular CAT scan found at hospitals and radiology facilities. In some cases, it can be 10X less. This scanner allows Dr. Slutsky to visualize internal anatomy that cannot be diagnosed externally or by a clinical exam. This CBCT analyzes the position and orientation of critical structures, like nerves, teeth roots, implant sites, and the sinus. Our CAT Scan provides 3D images vs. traditional x-rays which only provide 2D. Unlike regular x-rays, this CAT scan can see the differences between many types of tissues including bone, teeth, nerves and soft tissue.

This CBCT provides additional information about the location and nature of the root. With the low effective doses and relevant additional information provided, the use of CBCT scanners is justified in the management of complex endodontic problems. It is also useful in root canal treatment.  

Intra-Oral Camera

The intra-oral camera broadcasts images for both you and Dr. Slutsky to see. Instantaneously, the images of your teeth are sent to a computer screen so that both you and Dr. Slutsky can review the findings together.  This new technology allows you to relax in your dental chair while simultaneously observing a real-time movie of the inside of your mouth magnified beyond normal size on an adjacent computer monitor. Not only does this make it simple to see and understand what is happening in your mouth, but it makes it simple for us to keep accurate dental records from one visit to our Pompton Lakes, NJ dental office to the next.


STA System- Computer-Controlled Local Anesthetic Delivery


The STA System offers No Waiting, No Pain & No Numbness. The STA System uses the most advanced injection technology that allows Dr. Slutsky to deliver anesthetic quickly and painlessly and without the numbness that usually results from a standard injection of anesthetic. With the STA System even the most anxious patient can visit the dentist without fear.   



GURU- Visual Treatment Plan Presentation.


Treatment plan software allows you, the patient, to better understand the treatment Pompton Lakes dentist Dr. Lucy Slutsky is recommending, so you can fully participate in your oral health care decisions. 


Sterisil Dental Water System


Our practice has also added the Sterisil water filtration system to provide safe and clean water and prevent odor-causing bacteria for our patients during dental treatment.
