We use state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and treat a variety of problems, as well as perform regular cleanings and other preventative care. Our highly trained staff uses our advanced technology to deliver better care, more efficiently. Our modern approach facilitates quicker, and often less painful, treatment, right here in the office.
Computer Digital Radiography uses sensors to transmit an image directly to our computer. We can use the computer-generated images to take a closer look at your teeth using digital zoom. This process is faster than traditional x-rays and reduces the amount of radiation exposure significantly. Our system is also environmentally friendly because no chemicals are needed to develop the image!
Soft Tissue Laser
Using our soft tissue laser, we vaporize and modify the mouth’s soft tissues with unmatched precision. Our laser minimizes bleeding and can often be used without anesthetics. This precise tool causes less trauma than other methods and has a quick healing time with minimal pain.
The DIAGNOdent is a new, high tech laser system that aids in the early diagnosis of cavities in the complex anatomy of the chewing surfaces. It utilizes laser light to help detect and quantify demineralized tooth substances without exposure to x-rays.
This ultrasonic instrument is used to remove calculus by vibration and irrigation.
This air-polishing system uses a mix of air, water, and sodium bicarbonate to remove stains, plaque, and soft debris, while simultaneously polishing tooth surfaces. This system is highly effective for patients wearing orthodontic appliances. Our jet leaves teeth smoother, cleaner, and whiter than other systems.
