Digital Photography – Using digital photography is a great addition to our patient cases for fabricating restorations, developing treatment plans, and for use in orthodontic cases. This technology also is used for before and after photographs to showcase patients’ results.

Digital X-rays – Emitting far less radiation than traditional x-rays, digital x-rays allow the dentist to be able to diagnose and treat areas below the gum line including the jawbone, implant placement, dental extractions, root canals, and more. Taking digital x-rays also is much more comfortable for patients than traditional methods, and the image is generated on a computer screen and is immediately ready for viewing. This increases patient knowledge of their oral health and facilitates a greater understanding of diagnosis and treatment plans.

CO2 Light Scalpel Laser – In the past, dental surgery involved using a scalpel and sutures, which lead to uncomfortable and extensive healing. Now, the CO2 Light Scalpel laser eliminates all of that by evaporating the soft tissue as it works, instead of having to cut it away. Surgery with the CO2 Light Scalpel laser means less bleeding, shorter downtime, and a more comfortable procedure and recovery for patients. Plus, its precision is unparalleled even to the most skilled dentist using a scalpel.

K7 ­– As neuromuscular dentists, this system is a must and our patients experience unparalleled treatment thanks to this technology. It comes complete with a computerized mandibular scanner, electromyography that emits pulses to the jaw muscles to stimulate relaxation, and Electrosonography ideal for analyzing jaw movements, sounds, and motions, is perfect for diagnosing and treating Temporomandibular Joint Disorder or TMD.

3Shape TRIOS ­– Dental impressions now are made digitally using this technology. The 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner allows us to generate colorful 3D images of your teeth and inside of your mouth, which is ideal for developing treatment plans for restorations such as crowns, veneers, dental implants, and dentures. The 3D images can immediately be sent to our dental laboratory partner to begin work right away on your dental restoration. This saves patients time spent in the dental chair, reduces the number of appointments to complete treatment, and means that you get your restoration must faster.

CBCT ­– Our newest X-ray technology is the Cone Beam Computed Tomography or CBCT, which is used to generate precise 3-D images. These digital radiographs are much clearer than what we get from using a traditional X-ray machine. By using this advanced technology, we can customize the device to capture a specific view of a patient’s jaw, head, neck, or facial structure. We can use the CBCT to take a closer look at teeth, soft tissue, jawbone, nerve paths, and other dental structures. These detailed images are useful for diagnosing dental diseases or issues, as well as helpful in the creation of customized treatment plans.
