In addition to making dental treatment more efficient and effective, advancements in dental technology also improve your experience as a patient. Whether they’re saving you time, keeping you comfortable, or giving you the smile of your dreams, our state-of-the-art amenities will completely change the way you think about going to the dentist.
Digital x-rays are a fast and comfortable way for us to assess your dental needs. They’re safe enough to be used during pregnancy, and some studies have found that they emit up to 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays. With no chemical processing needed, digital x-rays are a good choice for your smile and the environment, too.
X-rays are commonly used in dental exams of patients of all ages, because many problems with the teeth and surrounding tissues cannot be seen by the naked eye. An x-ray is needed to reveal:
- Small areas of decay between teeth or below existing restorations
- Deep cavities
- Infections in the jaw bones
- Deep gum disease
- Abscesses or cysts
- Developmental abnormalities
- Some types of tumors
Like digital x-rays, digital photographs with our intraoral camera are a useful diagnostic and patient education tool. This camera shows you what we see during your exam and helps us guide you through your diagnosis and treatment options. It also allows us to visualize more and diagnose issues we might not have been able to see without the up-close view that it gives us.
Soft Tissue Laser
Lasers are extremely precise and can help shorten the duration of almost any general dental procedure. Because they eliminate the need for scalpels and sutures, lasers also help minimize pain and speed the healing process, especially in the soft tissues. We use our minimally invasive diode laser in a variety of applications, from deep cleanings and gum surgery to cosmetic gum reshaping.
Isolite® System: Rest Your Jaw!
Happy patients spend less time in the dental chair with more comfort. That’s why we use the Isolite® system! The Isolite has a soft, flexible mouthpiece to shield your tongue and cheek during treatments, and there’s even a place for you to rest your jaw. It also illuminates your mouth from the inside, making treatments shadowless and more efficient. Best of all, the Isolite system completely eliminates the need for cotton rolls and rinse breaks. Come in today and experience the difference.
Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings are made of a mercury-free composite material that can be closely matched to your other healthy teeth. They are virtually undetectable to the eye, and because they can be bonded directly to the surface of your teeth, they often leave behind more healthy tooth structure than traditional silver fillings.
Whitening your teeth can take years off your smile and make you look brighter and more youthful. We offer custom take-home tray whitening kits that give you the dramatic results you want in the comfort of your own home.
