Our office employs many types of new technology. These technologies benefit the patient by offering improved diagnosis and care.
The use of lasers in dentistry has brought about many great advancements. The use of lasers allows for procedures that are less painful, reduce the amount of tissue loss, and provide a reduction in bleeding. The use of a laser allows some procedures to be performed without the use of a drill or the need for a shot. Our practice uses lasers to improve your experience in our practice allowing us to provide technologically advanced care.
Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays. The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment. Digital x-rays are instant, so there is no longer a need to develop the film. Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care. It’s also a very green technology. By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste, digital x-rays are better for both the patient and the environment!
Digital Intraoral Cameras
An intraoral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and dentist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time. With an intraoral camera, patients are able to better understand what is happening and review the status of their oral health.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer affects thousands of Americans yearly. We use the latest technology to detect changes in oral tissue consistencies and/or lesions. At each hygiene appointment you will be screened for oral cancer. With early detection, cancer may be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives.
Piezo Electric Handpieces
These handpieces are used for periodontal (gum) and osseous (bone) surgery to gently and meticulously remove harmful bacteria without requiring invasive measures.
These speakers provide music in each operatory for patients to enjoy during any dental procedure. Patients can listen to their favorite Pandora™ music station without having to hear all of the surrounding noise going on as the dental work is being performed.
Digital Flat Screen Monitors
These television monitors are found next to every patient chair. Patients can watch a movie or TV show. Patients can also view their dental x-rays when speaking to the doctor about the findings for a better understanding of their oral health.
Our office offers free Wi-Fi for our patients use while visiting our office.
Electronic Appointment Confirmations/Requests
Our office provides email and text message confirmations and reminders for all scheduled dental appointments. Patients are also able to confirm/request appointments via email/text as well.
