We have Lasers :
All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with. When used for “curing” a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth.
Compared to the traditional dental drill, lasers:
- May reduce anxiety in patients uncomfortable with the use of the dental drill
- Minimize bleeding and swelling during soft tissue treatments
- May preserve more healthy tooth during cavity removal
With lasers we can treat:
- Tooth decay. Lasers are used to remove decay within a tooth and prepare the surrounding enamel for receipt of the filling. Lasers are also used to “cure” or harden a filling.
- Gum disease. Lasers are used to reshape gums and remove bacteria during periodontal procedures.
- Biopsy or lesion removal. Lasers can be used to remove a small piece of tissue (called a biopsy) so that it can be examined for cancer. Lasers are also used to remove lesions in the mouth and relieve the pain of canker sores.
We are a Paperless Office :
Our office is taking advantage of this wonderful technology! Smart and efficient never go out of style.
A digital record means that there is no paper folder with patient information. All the
charting, diagnostics, correspondence, financial records, scheduling is recorded and saved on a computer. There is no paper record signatures with Signature Pads.
Our current technology allows a paperless work practically and one of the biggest benefits is the speed.
We have Digital Electronic Sensors :
We use a small sensor connected directly to a computer instead of a film packet. Taking x-rays is faster because the sensor is merely moved from tooth to tooth; we don’t need to reload a film positioner for each image. It’s also faster because the x-rays are available immediately on the computer monitor, with no development step in between. Because the sensor is more sensitive than conventional x-ray film, the amount of x-ray radiation is reduced by up to 80 percent.
Digital radiography is an advanced technology that speeds treatment and helps us make the most accurate and efficient diagnosis of your dental condition. We also save images in our computer system for instant retrieval at a later date.
We use Digital Panoramic X-rays :
Panoramic radiography also called panoramic x-ray, is a two-dimensional (2-D) dental x-ray examination that captures the entire mouth in a single image, including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, surrounding structures and tissues. A panoramic x-ray is a commonly performed examination by dentists and oral surgeons in everyday practice and is an important diagnostic tool. It covers a wider area than a conventional intraoral x-ray and, as a result, provides valuable information about the nasal area, maxillary sinuses, tooth positioning and gum and bone irregularities. A panoramic x-ray can also reveal the presence of an existing issue or potential problem such as:
- advanced periodontal decease
- tumors and Cancer
- impacted teeth
- temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
- Reduces Patient Exposure to Radiation 80%.
We have several Intraoral Cameras:
These cameras are used to show you what we see. They are best used chairside to show you a clear picture of the inside of your mouth, allowing us to advise you on various treatment we save the images directly to your file.
In addition, we also offer the following:
