General and Cosmetic Dentistry: Latest Technology

At Brighton Dental Associates, one of our biggest priorities is the continued education and implementation of the latest technological advances into our dental procedures. This is also what sets us apart from the countless other cosmetic dentist practices and TMJ treatment facilities in the world.

"I realized for the first time that when I laughed I didn't turn away. My wife and kids say, come on Dad show us your smile."

Our dental practice has been on the leading edge of cosmetic dentistry and TMJ diagnosis and treatment for many years. This is one reason our own Dr. Bufo and Dr Serra were hand selected to teach at the renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). Their commitment to patients and this practice was also the catalyst for investing in several high-tech pieces of equipment that cannot be found in most dentist offices. These include:

  • K-7 muscle mapping machines
  • Digital X-ray machines
  • Surgical lasers for reconstructive procedures
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) machine for TMJ therapy
  • Computer controlled local anesthesia injection system
  • iCAT Digital CAT Scan


The iCAT Digital CAT Scan machine was only the second unit of its kind installed in a dental office. It not only enables us to see a 360-degree, 3D image of the entire head from any angle, it produces the image in mere seconds. And, because it is a digital technology, it exposes patients to much less radiation.

The iCAT Digital CAT Scan allows us to conclusively diagnose TMJ and to effectively monitor the patient’s continued progress throughout the treatment cycle.
