To provide the best dental care possible, we host an array of sophisticated dental instruments, such as the CERAC 3D, the DIAGNODENT laser and Digital X-rays.

CEREC 3D

CEREC 3D

With CEREC, your dentist can complete your permanent, all-ceramic crown or onlay in just one quick visit. CEREC is a digital imagining technology that allows the dentist to design your restoration on a computer and can be made on one of the two in house milling units.

This means:

  • Only one appointment necessary
  • No messy impressions
  • No temporaries
  • Tooth colored ceramic
  • Metal-free
  • Fewer shots

Diagnodent

Diagnodent

Diagnodent is a laser technology that scans your teeth with harmless pulses of light. This assists in detection of decay on the chewing surfaces of your back teeth.

You’ll benefit from our use of Diagnodent because it helps find decay that may have previously gone undetected. By diagnosing decay early, we can prevent more extensive dental treatment.

Isolite

This device assist the dentist to rapidly complete your dental treatment. It performs multiple functions of keeping your mouth dry, comfortably holds your mouth open, keeps your tongue in place, and prevents debris from being swallowed. Many patients have a sense of relief and prefer using the Isolite.

 

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays significantly reduce exposure to radiation verses conventional dental films.   Through utilization of Digital X-rays your dentist can make a fast determination of your current dental situation and allow for an accurate diagnosis of decay and other conditions.

Intra-Oral Camera

Through the innovative technology of the intra-oral camera allows you to visually have a greater awareness of your oral health. You can actually see what your dentist sees. Oral health education is critical in maintaining a healthy mouth.

This contemporary dental device transfers images of your mouth onto a monitor, allowing you to view your teeth first hand. The image may be magnified 400 times and allows you to understand your dental needs.

ZOOM

If you’re looking for a fast way to dramatically whiten your teeth Zoom whitening may be the answer for you.

Zoom is a same day in office whitening system that is safe and effective and can give you the instant results you’ve been wanting. A specially designed light activates the Zoom gel to gently break down stains on your teeth and put the sparkle back in your smile.

Diode Laser

Not long ago we were telling patients that the bone lost due to periodontal disease could never be regrown. With newer technologies and techniques, bone can be maintained and sometimes regrown.

The laser is essential for three reasons:

  • It reduces the bacteria in the pockets from billons to hundreds.
  • It specifically removes infected tissue while stimulating the noninfected tissue.
  • Healing occurs six times quicker due to the increase in circulation promoted by the laser.

With low bacterial counts, infected tissue removed, and an increase in circulation, the progress of periodontal disease is stopped and many times bone regrows.

Tissue Adjustment

In certain dental procedures, tissues in the mouth have to be reduced or removed. The laser provides great benefits over traditional methods of tissue reduction such as minimal pain after the procedure, quicker healing times, and less invasive.
