Latest Technology

Our office uses modern, state-of-the-art technology to enhance patient comfort and to help you get the smile you deserve!


Computer Digital Radiography (CDR)

Digital x-rays can now be taken using sensors that transmit the image directly into a computer monitor. This larger image helps the patient understand the doctor's explanations more easily and enables the doctor to "zoom in" on a specific area of the tooth. An important advantage to this new technology is that it reduces the amount of radiation by 90%. Digital x-rays are also faster. The digital image only takes a minute or two to appear in the monitor. In addition, this new technology is friendly to the environment since no chemicals are needed for developing the image. digital xray

Intraoral Camera

Our intraoral camera uses a tiny fiber-optic wand to easily take vivid photographs of the inside of your mouth. This allows us to let you see what we see.

Soft Tissue Laser

Modern lasers are used to cosmetically contour gums, lengthen crowns to provide ample structure for restoration, and treat pockets of infection during gum treatment.

Lasers are self-sterilizing, provide the maximum amount of control, and are virtually painless during the procedure and post-operatively.

ViziLite™

Used in conjunction with a conventional visual examination, the ViziLite™ test improves identification, evaluation and monitoring of abnormalities in those at increased risk for oral cancer. The ViziLite™ Test Kit includes a handheld disposable light and mouth rinse that work together to help detect abnormalities that might not be visible to the unaided eye.

T-Scan®

This technology is used to precisely document a patient's bite (occlusion). A sensor is placed in the patient's mouth using a special handle. As the patient bites on the ultra thin sensor, the T-Scan II software scans the movement and displays the occlusion on a computer screen. The timing and force of the tooth contacts are shown in color-coded contour images. This information allows for instant diagnosis of occlusion problems.

 


OralCDx

OralCDx represents a breakthrough in oral cancer detection, a test that will allow you and your dentist to improve the prognosis of a disease that has remained unchanged for the last 50 years.

OralCDx is the first computerized brush biopsy system. It allows dentists to quickly, painlessly and reliably detect oral cancer in its earliest, most easily treatable stage.

Originally developed as part of the “Star Wars” missile defense program, the OralCDx computer system includes a neural network-based image processing system specifically adapted to detect abnormalities unique to oral brush biopsy samples.


DIAGNOdent

The DIAGNOdent is a new high tech laser system that aids in early diagnosis of cavities in the complex anatomy of the chewing surfaces of teeth. It utilizes laser light of a defined wavelength to help detect and quantify demineralized tooth substances without x-ray exposure.


Ultrasonic Cleaning

The cavitron is an ultrasonic scaler. Power scalers do a more thorough job in less time. This results in significantly decreased scaling time and healthier, cleaner teeth and gums. Hand scalers require repetitive scraping movements and are restricted to adaptation of only one or two sides of the instrument. In comparison, all four sides of a power scaler can be adapted, because the device moves in an elliptical motion. This comes in handy when removing stain and deposits from behind and between the teeth. Ultrasonic scalers are more effective in removing stain as well. The ultrasonic vibration helps control oral bacteria by breaking down the cell wall of the bacteria. The water used to cool the cavitron then helps to rinse away bacteria, stain and debris.

Prophy Jet

An advanced air polishing cleaning technology which uses air/water/sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to gently remove stains and dental plaque while at the same time polishing the teeth.
