Infrared Laser


Dr. Tigran uses an infrared laser that encompasses four specific wavelengths of light known to affect certain targets within soft tissue. At the most refined level, Dr. Tigran targets the Mitochondria which are intensely stimulated by infrared laser exposure. Dr. Tigran's laser has the power to penetrate upwards of 10-12cm into the body giving us access to the key areas we treat in the head and neck region.We all have trillions of Mitochondria, and they are the source of all life energy, sort of the battery packs for cells to live and thrive. The laser can reach Mitochondria within the cells. Increased Mitochondrial activity is vital to healing any damaged tissue, as it increases energy available for all functions related to regeneration. Also, the wavelengths that are used are known to increase micro-circulation within tissues. In addition, the laser stimulates increased immune function. The net effect is profound, including reduction in pain and eradication of trigger points within muscles along with rapidly increased total healing of chronically inflamed and damaged soft tissues including ligaments, tendons, muscles, fascia, bone, cartilage, vasculature, nerves, and lymphatics.

Osstell IDx unit

Osstell IDx


Today we want a nice smile and we want it sooner rather than later. More and more patients are asking for early and immediate loading of their implants and requests for shorter treatment times along with a growing number of risk patients place greater demands on dentists and the available technology.

There is an increasing need to evaluate implant stability and osseointegration that cannot be achieved using traditional methods such as torque and percussion tests. It requires a more advanced diagnostics tool. This is where Osstell Dx comes in to help.

The Osstell IDx will help us to objectively determine implant stability and to assess the progress of osseointegration – without jeopardizing the healing process. It is a fast and non-invasive system that will provide the accurate and objective information needed to proceed with confidence



Thank you collage Dr Eric Zaremski for creating a custom ozone water generator

Ozone Water Generator


Thank you Dr. Eric Zaremski for creating a custom ozone water generator for A Smiling Heart Dentistry.

Ozonated Water is one of the most wonderful substances known to mankind. The process of ozonating water can produce two results:

1. Pure water free of bacteria, viruses, spores, parasites, and chemicals. Wonderful for drinking, when you feel like you are getting sick.
We will be using it for dental chair water lines as well, to have 99% bacteria free atmosphere.

2. If done properly, ozonated water can actually 'hold' ozone for a short period of time. With the proper use of a high purity, high output (medical) ozone generator, and if the ozone is bubbled through the water long enough, this ozonated water can contain significant levels of ozone bonded to the water. This ozonated water, is beyond pure. Full of ozone and oxygen, this ozonated water is used topically as a healing and antibacterial / antifungal agent, on burns, scrapes, bruises, in dentristry, surgery, and many other applications. If you drink this water, you are actually drinking 'ozone'.

The Benefits and Differences of Dental X-rays


Traditional X-Rays Require


•  A larger amount of radiation in order to deliver diagnostic x-rays.
•  Passport sized pictures that cannot be adjusted.
•  More time to develop

Two images of a patients dental implants using a traditional x-ray and a digital x-ray to show the difference between them.

Digital X-Rays


•  Have instantaneous images of most of the digital x-rays.
•  Can be enlarge over the screen and manipulated using variety computer programs in order to discern very slight differences in the gray scale.

How 3-D X-Rays help Dentists


Our Cone beam imaging machine has the ability to take 3-D imaging at a dose lower than a 2-D Panoramic x-ray. It is an amazing advancement, as a 3-D image provides hundreds of times more information than a panoramic x-ray and all this with half the dose of radiation.

We can utilize the 3-D x-ray with its superb software to plan very precise placement of implants, detect where the nerves are during wisdom teeth extractions.



A digital x-ray image machine called Velscope this device allows dentists to find oral cancer more efficiently.A picture showing how the Velscope identifies oral cancer more efficiently then the naked eye does.

Why It Is Important to Screen For Oral Cancer?


There is one patient every hour dying of oral cancer in North America. In our office we regularly screen for Oral and head and neck abnormalities.

What Technology Helps With the Screening?


We utilize World's #1 Adjunctive Examination Device Velscope. This powerful device detects noninvasively in 2-3 minutes mucosal abnormalities that might be pre-cancerous or cancerous in nature, which with the naked eye might be very difficult to discern without invasive biopcy.



A Intra-oral Camera a device used to detect cavities.

What is An Intra-oral Camera?


Intraoral cameras are very useful tool mainly to inform the patient visually what is going on in their mouths. We have invested into 2 of the highly advance of diagnostic cameras that allows you to see what we see inside your mouth.

What are they Used For?


One of them detects cavities and shows them in blue color. The other detects cavities between teeth without the use of x-rays.

Cavities on a tooth colored blue by the Intra-oral Camera making cavity detection more efficient for dentists.
The same cavity infected tooth shown to the naked eye without the blue markings from the Intra-oral Camera.


We use an Intra-Oral Camera with diagnostic quality, and that is tremendously less invasive compared to legacy and contemporary techniques utilizing conventional cameras, without the need for manipulation instrumentation and intra-oral mirrors.

Technology That Reduces the Need For X-rays,
While Using Less Radiation


CariVu™ is a revolutionary product similar to an intraoral camera but with the ability to detect cavities between teeth, without using x-rays. In essence, it minimizes the need for the x-rays while simultaneously helping you see where the cavities are on screen.



The Wand STA a computer controlled anesthesia delivery system.

Is there a technique or technology that makes shots painless?


The Wand® STA is a computer controlled anesthesia delivery system that provides immediate, pain free dental anesthesia for all injection types. It is revolutionizing dental anesthesia by taking away the pain, anxiety, and stress associated with conventional syringes.

Additionally, with the Wand® STA System there is no collateral numbness in the cheeks, lips, or tongues. This means that patients can speak clearly and comfortably immediately after injection



A patient's teeth before and after they used Zoom! Whitening; and brightened their teeth dramatically.

What Are my Options for Teeth Whitening?


The easiest and fastest way for an in office teeth whitening treatment accomplished in about an hour with the help of Zoom! Advanced Power Plus in office whitening. Take home kits are also available, which take 2-3 weeks instead.

Zoom! Whitening

whitens your teeth in about 1 hour, while preventing harmful chemicals from infiltrating the gingival, as is the case with the take home treatments.

T-Scan® Novus


Dr. Tigran has just returned from a 6 day cutting edge conference in Las Vegas, where he learned latest techniques for creating Hollywood smiles.

He also brought life changing new technologies with him. One of them is Tekscan: Dentistry's only Digital Occlusal Analysis System.

T-Scan® provides dynamic occlusal measurement - revealing the level and timing of force on individual teeth and the occlusal stability of the overall bite - bringing articulating paper marks to life.

Rendering of how the E4D System works

E4D


Dr. Tigran will travel to Texas to learn about where the future of dentistry is going and advance the office further into the 21st century. The other team members will have additional training from the E4D company. We are now the proud owner of the E4D crown milling machine!

The E4D machine enables us to eliminate impressions, so no need for uncomfortable impression materials in your mouth. An even larger advantage is the elimination of the temporary crown AND the return visit for the permanent crown. We value your comfort, time and convenience. Temporary crowns can break or come loose while you wait weeks for your permanent crown. You will now be able to get your crown on the same day in one single visit! Rather than relying on a lab to make your crown to your specifications, your crown now involves only two people: your dentist and you.

How does this work?


With the E4D System, we can obtain clean, fast digital impressions of your tooth in a few minutes using a laser scanner. This laser scanning technology is not only precise when capturing all the details of your tooth, but it is also as safe as the check-out scanner at the grocery store. Your impression is saved and used to design your new tooth with the special software.

We "create" your custom crown so that it is a personalized fit using the computer-based design center. From there, the information is transferred to the in-office milling unit, where your crown is made. You can even watch it being made. On the same day, your new crown is permanently placed in your mouth!

Will my insurance cover this?


This is the same crown you would get if you waited the traditional 2-4 weeks. Now, you can get it made directly in our office on the same day.



Collage of Dr. Tigran working with patients while using Platelet Rich Fibrin

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)


PRF is a second generation PRP where autologous platelets and leukocytes are present in a complex fibrin matrix to accelerate the healing of soft and hard tissue. Platelets contain growth factors and the fibrin mesh holds these important growth factors and releases them over time that can accelerate the wound healing process.

These products, processed from your own blood are then immediately placed into the surgical site. The scientifically proven positive effects of this procedure include better and faster soft tissue (gums) and hard tissue (bone) healing and regeneration. Because the healing occurs faster than usual, there is less chance of infection, dry socket, failed implants or failed grafting. These procedures are especially helpful to those who otherwise might have impaired healing such as diabetics , smokers, and others with chronic or acute conditions which can interfere with healing.

The Individual Patient (IP) Appliance: Computerized Brace


The World's most efficient and effective way to straighten teeth!

Your braces will be individually designed for the most effective and fastest treatment. With the aid of a computer, Dr. Tigran diagnoses your teeth, bone structure, and facial profile to develop your treatment plan and customize your brackets.

Dr. Tigran uses cutting edge orthodontic technology to create the optimal treatment plan for you. He analyzes every detail before the case starts to interpret any potential problems before they happen. Some of the technologies used include digital cephalometric analysis, model measuring, visual treatment objectives and over 150 treatment plan templates.



Digital Diagnostic Imagery


We utilize one of the most advanced digital x-rays, keeping radiation to a minimum while at the same time giving cutting edge diagnostics.



Simplant Software


Simplant Software converts CAT scanned images into 3D for diagnostic purposes as well as guided surgery for precise implant placement.



Dental Implants


We use the Cadillac of the implants. These implants utilize the technology of platform switching to keep bone loss to a minimum around the implants. This will enhance the natural look of the gums around the implant and retain the stability by keeping the bone surrounding it.



Rotary Nickel-Titanium Instrumentation


This instrumentation assists in efficient and conservative instrumentation of the root canals. Hand instrumentation with stainless steel files can cut root structure very aggressively.



Root ZX


Root ZX gives us extremely precise lengths of the roots, while keeping the need of x-rays to the minimum.



3Shape Scanner technology

3Shape Scanner and 3D Printer


"The Form 3D printer has enabled our restorative practice to use precision surgical guides.

We now utilize 3D printers for surgical guide and medical model production. Our 3D printers have given us the ability to satisfy our core principles of quality care and CBCT justification in a truly cost effective manner for all of our patients."
- Dr Tigran Khachatryan
