Revolutionary Equipment, High-Quality Results
Our Northridge patients expect excellence when visiting our office. For that reason, Drs. Terence Lau and Casey Lau utilize state-of-the-art technology to produce a superior smile you’ll love showing off.
Placing dental implants requires accuracy only found in an experienced dentist. Luckily, our Mid-Valley Dental Implants dentists have over 30 years of experience placing dental implants in Northridge, CA. Our cutting-edge technology provides quicker, safer, and more accurate dental implants than ever before.
3D CBCT (CT Scan)
Three-dimensional cone beam computed tomography (3D CBCT) is an imaging technology that allows Drs. Terence Lau and Casey Lau to generate a clear and concise 3D picture of the surgical area. This includes the patient’s dental structure—the teeth, bones, nerves, and soft tissue.
Is a CT scan necessary for dental implants?
At Mid-Valley Dental Implants, we use cone beam technology to enhance the speed, safety, and effectiveness of our dental implant treatment. For example, sometimes patients are in dire need of an entire new arch of teeth. In this situation, our Northridge dentists might recommend TeethXpress, which uses multiple dental implants to secure a full arch of teeth. Our CBCT technology ensures that we place the implants in the permanent spot, utilizing the maximum strength of your jawbone and creating a stable foundation for your prosthetic.
CAD/CAM: Same-Day Restorations
Generally, our dental implant treatment takes two visits: one to place the implant fixture and one to set your permanent crown. The reason we couldn’t place your crown earlier was that we had to send our impressions to a lab that would then manufacture them, taking about two weeks to complete. However, thanks to our computer-assisted design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) equipment, this waiting period is a thing of the past.
How Does CAD/CAM Make The Implant Process Easier?
At Mid-Valley Dental Implants, we’re proud to offer stunning restorations the same day as your treatment. Our CAD/CAM technology uses images of your mouth to create durable, attractive prosthetics that correspond with the rest of your smile in one quick appointment.

DEKA UltraSpeed CO2 Laser
At Mid-Valley Dental Implants, we use laser technology to increase the effectiveness of our soft-tissue treatments. Laser treatment is a minimally-invasive procedure and the recovery period is shorter than alternatives. The laser works by delivering concentrated light to the concerned area.
Which Treatments is the DEKA UltraSpeed CO2 Laser Used For?
Drs. Terence Lau and Casey Lau can use this technology to assist an array of treatments, including root canal therapy and smile design. Furthermore, the DEKA UltraSpeed CO2 Laser creates the implant socket while simultaneously sterilizing and sealing the surgical site. These efforts reduce recovery time and postoperative discomfort for our Northridge patients.
