The new Omnicam, a 3D Color Scanner, has arrived in the office!

A new Omnicam scanner arrived in the office last week, and Dr. Ferguson could not be more thrilled to be the first practice in the area to offer this option to his patients. Ferguson Dental has used CEREC technology to create same day restorations for the last 10 years, but this recent upgrade in imaging technology improves and expands the possibilities for our patients. The new scanner creates exceptional 3D color digital scans and eliminates the need for powder based scans or messy impressions. The technology also allows Dr. Ferguson to create digital models and deliver customized porcelain restorations using the CEREC in-office milling machine in around 90 minutes. If you're interested, ask him about it... he would love to tell you all about this amazing new technology!

Six Reasons to Consider Implants

Six reasons why you should consider implants instead of other solutions
  1. They look, feel and function like your natural teeth
  2. Healthy teeth do not need to be ground down to support the dental implants
  3. Anchoring dental implants in the jawbone stimulates bone tissue and gums, ensuring an attractive, esthetic result while helping to maintain facial structures
  4. Dental implants do not require any adhesives to hold the new teeth in place
  5. They eliminate the discomfort and insecurity of loose, ill-fitting dentures
  6. You have a secure, permanent tooth replacement

More information about the implant process can be found at and Dr. Ferguson always welcomes your individual questions. Call today to schedule a consultation, 973-744-3181.

He brought information and she helped him to make his presentation interactive and fun. This year Dr. Ferguson and his staff will have visited over 33 classes, in 7 schools, and 3 towns to speak with over 700 children!

Turns Out You Have Better Things to do with Your Time

Technology today is changing our everyday lives. Many people, however, aren’t aware that technology also is impacting dentistry in new and exciting ways. Cutting-edge innovations in dental instruments are requiring less time in the dental chair, causing less discomfort and creating satisfying results. One breakthrough instrument, called CEREC, allows Dr. Ferguson to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic fillings, saving patients time and inconvenience.

What is CEREC? 

CEREC is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, or CERamic REConstruction. Translated, it means that a dentist can economically restore damaged teeth in a single appointment using a high-quality ceramic material that matches the natural color of other teeth. 

How does the instrument work? 

CEREC uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine in one instrument. Dr. Ferguson uses a special camera to take an accurate picture of the damaged tooth. This optical impression is transferred and displayed on a color computer screen, where Dr. Ferguson uses CAD technology to design the restoration. Then CAM takes over and automatically creates the restoration while the patient waits. Finally, Dr. Ferguson bonds the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth. The whole process takes about one hour. 

What does this innovation mean for you? 

A tooth-colored restoration means no more silver fillings discoloring smiles. The filling is natural-looking, compatible with tissue in the mouth, anti-abrasive and plaque-resistant. For many restorations, it is no longer need to create temporaries or take impressions and send them to a lab. Because of this, the traditional second visit can be eliminated. CEREC has two decades of clinical research and documentation to support the technology, and Dr. Ferguson has been successfully using Cerec technology to restore teeth for over a decade. The restorations have been proven precise, safe and effective. 

How can I find out if this is an option for me?
