Technology


Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays.  The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment.  Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film.  Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care.  It’s also a very green technology.  By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste it is better for you and the environment!
Panoramic X-rays capture the entire mouth in one image. These x-rays may be used to plan treatment for dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
Oral cancer affects thousands of Americans yearly. We use the latest technology to detect changes in oral tissue consistencies and/or lesions. A UV light is shined into the mouth to detect unhealthy tissue. Healthy tissue looks darker under the light while spots of bad tissue appear lighter. With early detection, cancer may be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives.
An intraoral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and dentist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time.  With an intraoral camera, you are able to better understand what is happening in your mouth and review the status of your oral health.
Working like Doppler Radar, CamX® Spectra Caries Detection works to a detect dental caries (cavities) that are not yet visible to x-ray or the naked eye. It is the only caries detection aid that uses both color and numerical value to identify the extent of the decay. This technology enables dentists to practice minimally invasive dentistry by providing a better possibility of diagnosing this disease at an early stage.
Soft tissue lasers are used for periodontal (gum) surgeries. These lasers are more efficient, cause less discomfort, promote a faster healing time, and decreased risk of infection, providing a better outcome.
Are used for the comfortable removal of plaque and tartar during periodontal therapy. These devices are much more gentle and better tolerated by patients than conventional ultrasonic devices.
