Technology to Make Your Visit More Pleasant

We know that going to the dentist regularly can be tough to fit into your busy schedule. We have worked to hard to ensure your time with us is as pleasant as possible. 

In addition to offering leading-edge, high-tech dentistry, we also provide our patients with the following:

  • Nitrous oxide to calm dental anxiety and make any treatment more comfortable
  • Digital impressions that are not only more accurate but which spare our patients goopy, uncomfortable impressions
  • A comfortable office with a warm, friendly staff you will enjoy spending time with

Digital Radiographs

Nothing beats the convenience of digital radiographs. The images are produced quickly and easily enhanced, giving your dentist access to detail like never before. They are also easy to show the patient. Treatment decisions can be made quickly and confidently.

Digital radiographs are also safer than traditional x-rays because they emit less radiation.

In addition, digital x-rays are also easy to email to specialists and insurance companies, so there is less waiting for approval of recommended treatment.

 

Intraoral Camera

This technology provides a view of even the most well-hidden spots of your mouth.

These compact cameras are about the same size as a dental mirror. You remain comfortable while your dentist can explore all the nooks and crannies of your mouth that were previously hidden. Even the smallest fractures in teeth and the tiniest of forming cavities can be seen before they become bigger problems.

Another benefit to intraoral cameras is that it makes it easier for the patient to view problem areas on our chairside monitors. This goes a long way in helping to understand specific treatment recommendations.
