DIAGNOdent® Digital Cavity Detection
With this latest technology, cavities that are not yet visible to the naked eye can be detected using a specific wavelength of light. This technology enables dentists to practice minimally invasive dentistry by providing a better possibility of diagnosing this disease at an early stage.
Using Air Abrasion technology, our doctors are able to offer our patients the comfort of drill free dentistry. Air Abrasion is a new micro-dentistry technique which sprays a very fine stream of particles such as silica or aluminum oxide using compressed air or gas. Like a mini sandblaster, this technology can be used in place of a drill for many dental treatments, improving comfort and reducing anxiety traditionally caused by the noise of a drill.
Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation by about 90% as compared to traditional 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!
Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
Using Electronic Medical Records, our practice is able to quickly and accurately access patient information in order to provide the utmost in patient care. This helps to ensure patient confidentiality as well as reduce the need for paper. Using a digital format allows for quick access to patient information when needed for insurance records while providing a secure filing system.
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. The doctor shines a UV light into the mouth to detect unhealthy tissue. Healthy tissue looks lighter under the light while spots of bad tissue appear dark. With early detection, cancer may be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives.
Ultra Quiet Electric Handpieces
These handpieces provide less vibration and noise than traditional dental drills. They are quieter and more efficient in tooth preparation, making dental procedures shorter and more manageable.
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.
