With them, we can catch even the smallest dental problems sooner and give you the treatment you need to resolve them. If you’d like to learn more about our dental office’s technology, take a look below!
This small, handheld wand can be easily placed inside the mouth, magnify your teeth and gums, capture high-resolution images, then display them on a nearby monitor for closer inspection. It’s enlarged, yet clear view makes it easier to identify issues and explain them to you in real-time.
Dental offices of the past would rely on traditional film, harmful chemicals, and unnecessarily high levels of radiation just to capture images of underlying bone and tissue in the mouth. Through digital X-rays, we can capture images that are clearer, easier to examine, and do not require any close to the amount of radiation used to capture them (up to 90 percent less overall!) X-rays can even be completed in a matter of minutes.
CT/Cone Beam Scanners are much stronger types of X-ray equipment that can create detailed, panoramic views of your teeth, nerve pathways, oral tissues, and bone. This makes them perfect for more complex dental treatments, including dental implant placement surgery. The more we know about your unique facial structure, the more precise, predictable, and effective our treatment plan can be. It also works to minimize complications from surgery.
Whether you want to remove excess gum tissue, ensure your child gets a necessary frenectomy, or treat and manage gum disease, you’ll be able to experience our soft tissue laser! This small, handheld device uses concentrated light beams to remove infected or overgrown oral tissue, all without scalpels or sutures. This technology not only removes bleeding, but reduces recovery times as well!
