Air Abrasion

Air abrasion uses a small but powerful stream of air and particles that works like a tiny sandblaster to remove areas of decay, while conserving healthy tooth structure. Air abrasion eliminates the need for a dental drill in many cases, which puts patients with dental anxiety at ease.

CariFree®

CariFree® is one of the best professional systems on the market for helping patients combat tooth decay. CariFree® has a comprehensive line of products to fit your needs. CariFree® products help balance the pH in your mouth and create a more alkaline environment that inhibits the formation of decay, cavities, or dental caries.

Digital Impressions

If you had braces when you were younger, or you’ve ever had any restorative dental work done, you probably remember having to sit with messy impression goop in your mouth. This was the only way we could take impressions for a long time, we weren’t just trying to torture you! Thankfully, today, we can now take impressions digitally with a quick scan. No mess, no gagging necessary! Digital impressions are quick and painless to make restoring or transforming your smile easier and more comfortable than ever!

Digital X-rays

Digital Xrays
Digital x-rays are much safer and more convenient than traditional x-rays of the past. Digital x-rays use less radiation so they are safer for the human body, and can be taken in a matter of moments right from the dental chair. Patients are able to see their x-rays on the screen alongside the doctor to give them a better understanding of their oral health.

Cone Beam 3D Imaging

We’re thrilled to announce the addition of a new piece of equipment that few other dental offices in the area utilize. Cone beam 3D imaging technology is a CT scanner that produces highly-detailed 3D images of your jaws and oral structures including nerves, sinus cavities, and blood vessels. Cone beam imaging uses significantly less radiation than traditional CT scans and helps us gain invaluable insight to provide precision surgical implant placement from the comfort of your dental home. Aside from precision-accuracy in dental implant treatment planning and placement, 3D cone beam technology is also beneficial for endodontic treatment, orthodontics, trauma, and TMJ diagnosis and therapy. With this advanced technology, you can gain peace of mind and the most accurate results.

Intraoral Camera

Intraoral cameras give us a whole new level of insight to your oral health. In the past the only way we could get a good look at the surfaces in your mouth was through the magic of sight and the help of a tiny dental mirror. Today, intraoral cameras give us high resolution images of the most hard to reach places in your mouth for earlier detection of disease and decay.

Laser Cavity Detection

Our DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection technology allows us to detect areas of decay earlier than ever before. In the past we could only detect decay once it became visible to the naked eye. With the help of a low level laser light, we are able to diagnose and treat areas of decay before they become more problematic.
