Our Technologies


The Cavitron Ultrasonic Scaler revolutionizes the way we approach dental cleanings. Using high-frequency sound waves to eradicate plaque and tartar build-up, areas that are often hard-to-reach with traditional cleaning methods will be effectively and gently cleansed. But the benefits don’t stop there. The Cavitron doesn’t just focus on cleaning—it also stimulates gum tissue, enhancing blood flow and encouraging overall gum health. This means you’re not only left with visibly cleaner teeth but also healthier gums. The Cavitron Ultrasonic Scaler is part of our commitment at Melko Dental to combine advanced technology with patient comfort, ensuring a dental cleaning experience that is both effective and pleasant.


The CEREC system is truly a marvel in modern dentistry, significantly streamlining the process of creating crowns, inlays, and onlays. Unlike traditional methods that required external lab fabrication and longer waiting periods, the CEREC system uses advanced digital scanning technology to create a highly accurate 3D map of your mouth right in our office. This precise model allows us to design and mill the required restorations in-house, making the process incredibly efficient. The result? High-quality, custom-fit crowns, inlays, and onlays ready for placement in a single visit. This is dental care tailored to your needs, ensuring you receive top-quality restorations almost instantly and with minimal waiting time. With CEREC at Melko Dental, superior dental care meets rapid convenience.

Cone Beam

Cone Beam Computed Tomography, often abbreviated as CBCT, represents a significant advancement in dental imaging technology. It provides an unparalleled clarity and depth of understanding about a patient’s oral structures. By encompassing the entire mouth and jaw within a single scan, the CBCT tool offers a comprehensive view that goes beyond what standard dental X-rays can capture.

The high-resolution 3D images produced enable us at Melko Dental to diagnose with remarkable precision and subsequently recommend the most appropriate, tailored treatments for each patient. Whether it’s detecting hidden issues or planning complex dental procedures, the CBCT scanner empowers us to provide the highest standard of care based on a detailed understanding of your oral health. With this technology, we ensure nothing is overlooked and you receive the best possible treatment for your specific needs.


DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary technology that plays a crucial role in preserving oral health by detecting early signs of tooth decay. Unlike traditional methods that might miss small or hidden areas of decay, DIAGNOdent’s advanced laser fluorescence detection allows us to locate even the tiniest beginnings of a cavity. This highly sensitive tool scans your teeth and alerts us to areas of decay that could easily go unnoticed, thereby enabling us to intervene at the earliest stage. By catching decay early, we can prevent it from evolving into a more serious problem that could result in discomfort and potentially extensive dental work. The use of DIAGNOdent at Melko Dental underscores our commitment to preventative care and to ensuring our patients maintain optimal oral health for the long term.

Digital and Panoramic X-Rays

Panoramic X-rays, also known as Panorex, are an invaluable tool in modern dentistry, providing us with a comprehensive view of your entire mouth, jaw, and even the sinuses. Unlike traditional X-rays that capture only specific sections of the mouth, a panoramic X-ray encapsulates a broad view of your oral structures in one image. This wide-ranging perspective is vital in diagnosing and planning treatments for various dental conditions. It aids in detecting problems such as impacted teeth, bone abnormalities, cysts, infections, fractures, and more. By providing a detailed, bird’s-eye view of your oral health, Panorex ensures that nothing is overlooked, and all the necessary information is available to us to make the best possible treatment decisions for you at Melko Dental.


iCat 3D imaging is revolutionizing the way we understand and approach oral health at Melko Dental. This advanced imaging system allows us to gain a comprehensive and precise 3D representation of a patient’s teeth and jaw, a crucial step in planning for procedures such as dental implants, surgeries, or orthodontic treatments. Unlike traditional 2D imaging, iCat 3D technology provides us with multi-dimensional images that reveal intricate details of your oral structures. The comprehensive nature of these images allows us to accurately diagnose, plan, and execute treatments. It is a crucial component of our commitment to providing our patients with personalized care and successful treatment outcomes. In essence, iCat 3D imaging plays an instrumental role in enhancing our diagnostic capabilities and improving the precision and effectiveness of our treatments.


The era of traditional, messy dental impressions is being phased out thanks to innovative technology such as the iTero digital impression system. It’s transforming how we take impressions of your teeth! With this advanced system, the discomfort and inconvenience of the traditional method are a thing of the past. iTero uses a compact, hand-held wand to take a highly accurate, digital 3D image of your teeth and gum structures. These digital impressions provide a detailed, clear visual representation, assisting in creating precise and effective treatment plans for crowns, bridges, or orthodontic treatments. This digital solution not only enhances comfort but also significantly improves treatment outcomes, making your journey to a healthier, more beautiful smile an efficient and comfortable experience. With iTero, patient-centric care is not just a promise but a reality.


In our commitment to delivering superior dental care, we at Melko Dental utilize cutting-edge technology like the Piezo scaler. The removal of plaque and calculus – typically viewed as a daunting aspect of dental visits – has been transformed into a relaxing and comfortable experience with the use of this modern tool. The Piezo scaler operates through ultrasonic vibrations to gently and effectively remove stubborn deposits from your teeth. Our experienced professionals are well-versed with this technology, ensuring that you receive optimal results in a timely manner. Not only does the Piezo scaler provide excellent cleaning results, but it also minimizes discomfort and shortens treatment time. This approach allows us to prioritize your comfort and your oral health, all at the same time. When it comes to dental cleanings, the Piezo scaler technology truly is a game-changer.


Melko Dental is proud to employ advanced technologies such as the WaterLase, a revolutionary dental tool that uses a blend of atomized water and laser to treat teeth and gums. This innovative piece of equipment greatly reduces the anxiety typically associated with the traditional dental drill. The WaterLase technology creates a unique, minimally invasive cutting action that allows for a significantly more comfortable dental experience. It can perform various dental procedures with precision, reducing pain and often eliminating the need for anesthesia. Furthermore, the WaterLase technology minimizes bleeding, swelling, and post-operative discomfort, accelerating the healing process. It’s a transformation of dental treatments, allowing us to provide our patients with an exceptionally comfortable, effective, and less intimidating dental experience.

3D CT Scanner

At Melko Dental, we prioritize patient safety and treatment efficacy, which is why we use our advanced 3D CT scanner for dental implant procedures. Dental implants are an exceptional solution for tooth replacement, but the accuracy of their placement is paramount to their success. Our high-resolution 3D CT scanner provides a comprehensive, detailed, and precise view of the patient’s oral structure, including bones, teeth, nerves, and tissues. This technology allows us to plan the implant procedure meticulously, ensuring optimal positioning and alignment of the implant. The scanner’s detailed imaging helps prevent potential complications, ensuring a smooth procedure and a highly successful outcome. By integrating this technology into our practice, we empower patients to confidently choose dental implants as a long-term solution for tooth loss.

In the dynamic field of dentistry, embracing the latest technology is not an option—it’s a necessity. At Melko Dental, we understand this fundamental truth and have integrated an impressive suite of state-of-the-art dental technologies into our practice. From comprehensive imaging solutions like iCat 3D and CBCT to efficient treatment tools like CEREC and WaterLase, we provide an unprecedented level of care.
