Technology

Up-to-date technology helps us make your treatment more efficient, more comfortable, and more successful. We'd like to share with you a few of the latest technologies we've incorporated in our practice to provide you with the modern care you deserve!

Digital X-Rays

Digital dental x-rays play a crucial role in accurate diagnosis of many common dental concerns. Often, long before a problem becomes visible to the naked eye, it can be seen on an x-ray. This is particularly true of decay, infections, cysts, and damage to the bone structure caused by periodontal disease. 

We want to identify and treat problems as quickly as possible. Early diagnosis and treatment usually means much simpler and more conservative treatment, something we think everyone can appreciate! 

Digital x-rays use up to 90% less radiation than dental x-rays and feature a number of other impressive benefits, as well: 

  • More comfortable sensors
  • Almost instant development
  • The ability to zoom in, highlight, and magnify images for improved diagnosis and patient education
  • Storage within your digital file for fast retrieval and comparison
  • No chemicals required for developing

If you have any questions about the use of x-rays in your care, we encourage you to call our office!

 

Diode Laser

We've incorporated lasers into your care because they allow us to perform a variety of treatments with incredible precision. Lasers also promote faster healing and reduce bleeding. Laser treatment is usually more efficient and more comfortable compared to manual instruments. 

We can use our laser to: 

  • Treat canker sores
  • Remove excessive gum tissue
  • Perform frenectomies
  • Take biopsies
  • Reduce bacteria in periodontal disease
  • Reshape gum tissue for functional or esthetic purposes
  • Treat infections
