Our practice provides the very latest and best in regards to technology. All crowns are designed and made by computer (called CAD/CAM) which provides and excellent fit and superior strength and a faster turn around time. We use digital xrays which allow for up to 90% less radiation for you, the patient. Intraoral and digital cameras allow us to show you the dentistry that we are providing for you.Using electric handpieces, virtual reality glasses, pillows, blankets and headphones make your dental experience comfortable and more relaxing.

CAD/CAM Dentistry 

Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Milling (CAM) offer advanced treatment options with less waiting time for a restoration. Depending on the procedure(s) being performed, your dental restoration(s) may be able to be placed on the same day or next day instead of the usual wait of one to two weeks or more.  Using a special scanner, the office can take a digital impression without using traditional trays, improving patient comfort.  The restoration(s) is then designed using advanced computer 3D technology that can analyze the interaction of the new restoration with your other teeth.  A new crown can be milled out of a solid piece of tooth-colored composite material providing strength that may surpass that of many crowns produced in a dental lab.  Advancements in materials and technology have provided many options for great restorations that can both look great, provide superior strength compared to other restorations, and reduce the need for multiple visits to the office.

Lasers

The use of lasers in dentistry has brought about many great advancements.  The use of lasers allows for procedures that are less painful, reduce the amount of tissue loss, and provide a reduction in bleeding.  The use of a laser allows some procedures to be performed without the use of a drill or the need for a shot.  Our practice uses lasers to improve your experience in our practice allowing us to provide technologically advanced care.

Digital X-ray 

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, so 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, digital x-rays are better for both the patient and the environment!

Electronic Medical Records (EMR) 

Using Electronic Medical Records, our practice is able to quickly and accurately access patient information in order to provide the utmost in patient care.  This helps to ensure patient confidentiality as well as reduce the need for paper.  Using a digital format allows for quick access to patient information when needed for insurance records while providing a secure filing system.

Digital Intraoral Cameras 

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, patients are able to better understand what is happening and review the status of their oral health.

Digital Caries Detection 

With this latest technology, a UV light detects cavities that are not yet visible to the naked eye.  This technology enables dentists to practice minimally invasive dentistry by providing a better possibility of diagnosing this disease at an early stage.

Oral Cancer Screening 

Oral cancer affects thousands of Americans yearly.  We use the latest technology to detect changes in oral tissue consistencies and/or lesions.  The doctor shines a UV light into the mouth to detect unhealthy tissue. Healthy tissue looks lighter under the light while spots of bad tissue appear dark. With early detection, cancer may be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives.

Ultra Quiet Electric Handpieces 

These handpieces provide less vibration and noise than traditional dental drills.  They are quieter and more efficient in tooth preparation, making dental procedures shorter and more manageable.

Virtual Reality Glasses 

These virtual reality glasses are for patient use during any dental procedure. Patients can watch their favorite movies or television shows, allowing them to relax while the dental work is being performed.

Wi-Fi 

Our office offers free Wi-Fi for our patients use while visiting our office.
