Continually investing in modern dental technology is what allows our office to provide high-quality, efficient dental care. Having the right equipment at our disposal means we are able to diagnose and treat dental issues faster and more easily, which means patients can expect treatments that are quick, comfortable, and effective.
- DIAGNOdent® Cavity Detection uses laser fluorescence to identify tooth decay quickly and effectively.
- The Identafi® System can detect signs of oral cancer that are not visible to the naked eye so that it can be treated when it is less advanced and highly curable.
- Digital X-Rays emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays and are available for examination within seconds.
- Panoramic X-rays allow us to get a comprehensive view of the patient’s teeth and jaw and how they are working together.
- Intraoral Cameras offer an up-close, live view of the teeth and gums that the patient and doctor can see on a computer screen.
- Nitrous Oxide Sedation puts patients into a state of relaxation and helps relieve anxious thoughts during dental visits.
