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)
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.
We can now use the Syrijet needle-less anesthesia
injector in many cases for our patients that have
a fear of needles. The Syrijet propels an ultra-fine
stream of anesthesia into the desired location and
provides anesthesia without any need for needles!
Dolphin Cosmetic Imaging Software
Dental imaging software allows us to simulate cosmetic
and other procedures so you can see the effect on
your smile before we start! We take digital pictures
of your teeth and then use a sophisticated computer
simulation program to create the projected "after"
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
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
|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.
Air Abrasion is a gentle spray of an air and powder
that gently sprays away tooth decay. There is no heat,
vibration or sound, like there is from a drill. The
procedure is relatively painless, therefore not always
requiring an injection. Air abrasion is a very precise
technology and usually removes less tooth structure
for a filling than a drill would.
