Staying at the Forefront
Dental Solutions is always striving to remain at the cutting edge. That's why we regularly attend dental seminars and conventions to stay educated on the latest advances in dentistry. We're always on the lookout for the best possible techniques, procedures, products, and equipment that can be incorporated into our Warsaw dental practice.
CEREC: Crowns in Just One Visit
Traditional dental crowns take two visits to complete: an initial visit to prep teeth and take impressions, and a second visit to place the finished restoration created by an off-site lab. CEREC® technology eliminates the wait, essentially bringing a lab into the practice. CEREC is a CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and manufacturing) system and in-office milling unit. It allows dentists to take digital impressions, create a custom tooth-colored crown, and place the finished restoration in just one visit.

A Practice That Truly Cares about You Advanced Dentistry in Warsaw, IN
Dr. Stofer has been my dentist for about 20 years and always liked him and their friendly staff. My 86 year old mom is staying with us now after breaking her hip and needed emergency dental work. After her procedure was done and as we were going home, her comment was that: "Dr. Stofer was the most gentle dentist she has ever been too." The staff was so kind and friendly. Thank you Dr. Stofer!View on Google

The dental x-rays of the past involved hazardous chemicals and took up a lot of physical space. Modern digital x-rays require no darkrooms or chemicals and can be pulled up with ease. The high-resolution imagery is far better than the old x-rays viewed on a light board. In addition, the digital x-rays that are taken today expose patients to less radiation than the x-rays of the past. This is a safer, more environmentally friendly way for dentists to identify oral health problems.
Planmeca ProMax 3D Max
While traditional x-rays are helpful, dentists also rely on CT scans to help with proper diagnosis and planning procedures such as implant placement. The Planmeca ProMax® 3D Max imaging system can quickly generate a three-dimensional digital x-ray of a patient's teeth, jaw joint, and cranium. The high-resolution imagery reduces guesswork and leads to more accurate dental treatment.
X-rays and CT scans are great for analyzing the structures of the mouth. Intraoral cameras can also play an important diagnostic and planning role. This pen-sized wand has a camera on the end, allowing dentists to look into a patient's mouth on a screen. The intraoral camera can access those hard-to-reach places. Thanks to the high-quality images from this handheld tool, we can get a better look at a patient's tooth structure and gum tissue.
Our Warsaw practice relies on laser dentistry for a number of dental care tasks. These highly precise lasers can replace the scalpels, drills, and traditional tools of yesterday. Dental lasers can reduce bleeding during oral surgery, improve the detection of cavities and other problems, and enhance the results of cosmetic procedures.
The Versatility of Dental Lasers
Prepping Teeth for Dental RestorationsIf you have a cavity or compromised tooth structure, we can use laser technology to prep your tooth for a custom dental restoration.
Whitening Stained TeethWhile professional bleaching agents are effective, some whitening systems require the use of laser light to properly brighten smiles.
Diagnosing Dental ConditionsLaser dentistry plays an integral role in many diagnostics tools. These safe and effective lasers can identify dental issues with pinpoint accuracy.
Spectra Cavity Detection
The Spectra intraoral camera is specially designed to help with cavity detection. The small handheld device takes pictures of each tooth. The images are then color-coded, revealing problem areas on a tooth's structure. This dental technology is essential for the early detection of tooth decay, and preserving as much natural tooth structure as possible.
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
The VELscope® system is a key tool to detect early signs of oral cancer. The handheld device emits blue-spectrum light. By bringing attention to abnormal growths in the mouth, the light from the VELscope can identify tissue that should be examined further. By analyzing these potential problem areas, we can diagnose and treat oral cancer in its earliest stages.
Oral Cancer Symptoms
- Discoloration of the tongue, gums, and other soft tissues
- Numbness or tenderness in the mouth
