High Tech Procedures to Improve Your HEALTH

  • Digital X-rays: by using digital x-rays we are able to reduce the amount of exposure you receive by an amazing 90 percent!
  • Same Day Crowns: With our in office 3D imaging computer and computer aided milling chamber we are able to do same day crowns and onlays.  No longer do you have to wear a temporary crown that is bad for your gums and sometimes painful to your teeth. Want more info? See Cerec examples here.
  • Laser Dentistry: We have two different lasers that we use in our office. The first and most commonly used is a laser to detect cavities! The second is a high tech cutting device. We use it instead of scalpels for things like gum reduction surgeries. It heals faster and provides less trauma to your tissues.
  • Advanced Sterilization: We have made a concerted effort to purchase more equipment that is able to be sterilized at high temperatures.  This reduces the need for caustic sterilization sprays that can be corrosive to your lungs.
  • Water System: Rather than plumbing our entire office with water directly from the city water system, we use individual water in each operatory.  Furthermore, this water is sterilized and cleaned through a distillation process. Both of these measures help to ensure that no bacteria build
    up in the lines that can adversely affect your mouth during treatment, especially during surgical procedures. Offices that do not do this have bacteria build up in their lines that is both unhealthy and gross! Read a 20/20 report on the subject.
  • Reciprocating Handpiece Root Canals – A new technology that is beyond both traditional endo and rotary endo. Rather than have the instruments rotate 360 degrees in your root canals, this advanced technology oscillates at 35 degrees. This lowers the risk of broken files to almost zero.  Ask any other dentist that uses rotary endo what their biggest fear of it is and they’ll tell you broken files.

Technology to Improve Your Visit

  • Intraoral Camera – We take pictures of any problem that needs addressing. This helps you to actually see what the Dr. sees instead of just having
    to believe what he says. If you want a copy, just tell us and we’ll email it to you, its your dental record anyway!
  • Tablets & Free WiFi – play on an Amazon Kindle while waiting or let your children watch a video while
    getting a filling. Also, free WiFi always available in the office.
