iCat® Flex Cone Beam Scanner
iCat® Flex Cone Beam technology provides a 3D digital tomographic view of the patient’s area of interest. A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional. With Cone Beam systems, the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas. The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago.
TRIOS® 3Shape Digital Impression Scanner
The TRIOS® 3Shape Digital Impression Scanner allows the doctor to take digital impressions of the patients teeth. Patients will have a comfortable, impression-free experience with superior accuracy. Enjoy the benefits of a high-tech, chairside experience without the mess and gagging associated with traditional impressions. The scanner allows the doctor to be more efficient and can also reduce the number of visits to the office, saving you time.
Biolase Waterlase® YSSG Lase Lasers
The use of lasers in dentistry has brought about many great advancements. The Biolase Waterlase® YSSG Laser 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.
Dexis® Digital X-ray
Dexis® 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!
Orascoptic Magnification Loupes with LED Lighting
The use of specialized operating loupes means that the doctor is able to get a detailed look at the work they are doing during all phases of treatment. The additional magnification and illumination allow them to work with great precision and see small details such as calcified canals and fractures. The doctor is able to more accurately diagnose and treat the patient using a dental surgical microscope to improve the potential outcome of the treatment from “good” to “excellent”.
CAD/CAM Modelling software (Simplant and Anatomage)
Using a virtual 3-D model created by this technology, implant placements and the following restorative work can be simulated to create the ideal patient treatment plan. These virtual plans allow the doctor to take multiple aspects of implant placement and restoration into consideration, resulting in optimal aesthetics, function and longevity for the patient’s final restoration.
Once planning is complete, specialized software can be used to create a surgical guide that will used during implant placement. This guide directs the exact location, angle and depth of the implant placement. The use of the guide increases the accuracy, efficiency and safety and predictability of the procedure.
Air-Powder Polishing is used to safely and effectively clean teeth and implants without scratching or abrading the surface of teeth and dental implants.
DigiDoc® Digital Intraoral Cameras
Digidoc® 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.
ViziLite® 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.
SciCan® Ultra Quiet Electric Handpieces
SciCan® 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.
Biolase Epic™ Diode Soft Tissue Lasers
Biolase Epic™ Diode soft tissue lasers are used for periodontal (gum) surgeries. These lasers are more efficient, cause less discomfort, promote a faster healing time, and decrease the risk of infection, providing a better outcome.
Piezo Electric Handpieces
Piezo Surgery by Mectron® and Piezo Handpieces by Acteon® (Newtron P5XS)
These handpieces are used for periodontal (gum) and osseous (bone) surgery to gently and meticulously remove harmful bacteria without requiring invasive measures.
Bose® Noise Cancelling Headphones
These ultra quiet headphones are for patient use during any dental procedure. Patients can listen to their favorite music, movie, or television show without having to hear all of the surrounding noise going on as the dental work is being performed.
Digital Flat Screen Monitors
These television monitors are found next to every patient chair. Patients can watch a movie or TV show. Patients can also view their dental x-rays when speaking to the doctor about the findings for a better understanding of their oral health.
Our office offers free Wi-Fi for our patients use while visiting our office.
Our office uses iPads® for patient registration, as well as patient education.
