Technology is a Large Part of Who We Are
We utilize leading-edge dental technology as part of our commitment to providing an exceptional level of dentistry. These tools allow us to detect issues earlier, improve the efficiency of your appointments, create more precise treatment plans, and enhance your comfort.
Digital and 3D X-rays
Our digital X-rays emit less radiation, take images faster without any need for processing, and allow us to optimize the images so we can provide a more precise diagnosis.
Our panoramic dental x-ray machine uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to capture the entire mouth in one image. It allows us to plan treatment for dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
We use our intraoral camera to get a closer look at your oral health while also helping to bring you into your own diagnosis and treatment plan. The images from the camera can be projected onto a screen for you to get a dentist’s view of any signs or issues we see.
The CEREC system takes the normal, multi-visit traditional dental crown procedure and cuts it down. You’ll receive your permanent, natural-looking restoration faster than ever!
Isolite Comfort System
Sitting through your dental appointment is now more comfortable thanks to the Isolite system. It has a flexible bite block designed to alleviate soreness from keeping your mouth open while we work, and it has hydration and suction capabilities so we can work more efficiently.
If your treatment requires you to get an injection, we can block any possible discomfort or pain with the gentle vibrations from our DentalVibe.
