Intra-Oral Camera

Dental Associates Of Hoboken

Intra-oral imaging gives you a detailed view of your mouth in pictures and videos. Words come to life so you can see what we see.

Putting specific problem areas onto a computer screen lets us see with clarity and detail which is not possible with a traditional mouth mirror. Specialized hand-held wands quickly capture the details of your teeth and gums. In fact, even small cracks that often lead to broken teeth appear vividly, with the click of a button. We can explain the need for treatment more clearly, by showing you what we see and with greater detail.

As an added benefit, dental insurance benefits frequently pay easier with the visual proof of a captured image in our records.

ITero Element Scanner

The restorations and appliances used to restore and protect your mouth involve high levels of customization. Traditionally, hours of hand labor in a dental laboratory are invested in these precise products. With the adoption of more technology into dentistry, digital imaging continues to grow in importance.

Most restorations begin with a mold of your mouth that involves messy impression materials. With the iTero Digital Scanner, you can say goodbye to the mess. iTero eliminates this step, replacing it with simple digital images captured with a handheld wand. The images quickly appear on a computer monitor as 3-D models of your teeth. Dr. Posner and Dr. Ali review the enlarged detailed images, ensuring that the information meets the Dental Associates of Hoboken standard.

With a simple click of the mouse, the files are instantly transferred via the internet to begin the process of designing your restoration or other prescribed treatment. Reduced shipping time expedites the return of your case to our office while ensuring you receive all the advantages of digital impressions:

  • NO messy impressions.
  • INSTANT images for review.
  • DETAILED reproduction for better outcomes.
  • FASTER case completion.
  • EXCEPTIONAL fitting restorations and appliances.

We look forward to introducing you to the innovation of modern dentistry. iTero provides one more reason to discover a different kind of dental experience at Dental Associates of Hoboken.

Digital X-Ray

Digital sensors capture detailed x-ray images with a fraction of the exposure found in traditional film x-rays.

Technological advancements in x-ray technology provide multiple benefits, from safety to improved treatment results.


  • Safety – Although traditional dental films require minimal radiation for image development, our digital x-ray system provides unsurpassed safety: up to 90% reduction compared to most older film-based systems.
  • Time Savings – Images captured instantly with a digital sensor lessen the time you spend in the dental chair.
  • Better Outcomes – Improved image clarity increases Dr. Posner, Dr. Ali and Dr. Faden’s ability to diagnose and treat conditions. Software tools bring detailed magnification and detection tools into focus.

Soft Tissue Laser

Laser technology continues to transform many procedures in healthcare. Once the subject of sci-fi movies, lasers now clearly provide benefits for mainstream treatment in medicine and dentistry. Shorter procedures, less discomfort, and quicker healing are just a few of the benefits of modern lasers.

The soft tissues of the mouth cover about 30 square inches of surface area. Annoying lumps or bumps may need removal with any unusual patches of tissue requiring further microscopic analysis. Traditionally, a surgical procedure involving incisions and sutures would be required to produce a biopsy sample. Today, a pen-shaped wand allows Dr. Posner and Dr. Ali to remove suspicious or bothersome bumps within a couple of minutes. The healing stimulated by laser energy leads to rapid healing and little to no discomfort, without the need for stitches.

Similarly, gums can be quickly reshaped without bleeding, and some gum infections are now treated with rapid results. Even cold sores or mouth ulcers can undergo faster healing when laser energy passes over the surface. Better yet, the days of pain associated with these recurring ulcers can be dramatically decreased. Lasers are also safe for use with children and can help with growth and development issues or help wisdom teeth move into place.

A soft tissue laser offers a valuable benefit to many commonly treated conditions in the mouth. Dr. Posner and Dr. Ali have specific training in laser protocols which opens up numerous possibilities using one of modern dentistry’s most versatile tools.


A 3D CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) is a type of medical imaging technology that uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam to create three-dimensional images of the inside of your mouth. It is commonly used in dentistry and orthodontics to create detailed 3D images of the teeth, jawbone, and surrounding structures.

Unlike traditional dental X-rays, which only provide 2D images of the teeth, a 3D CBCT scan allows dentists and orthodontists to view the teeth and surrounding structures from multiple angles, which can help them diagnose and treat a wide range of dental and orthodontic problems with greater accuracy and precision.

CBCT scans are non-invasive, quick, and painless, and they expose patients to only a low dose of radiation, making them a safe and effective diagnostic tool for dental and orthodontic professionals.
