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, 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 it is better for you and the environment!
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, you are able to better understand what is happening in your mouth and review the status of your oral health.
We also use Cosmetic Imaging Software in our office. This smile simulation software produces realistic cosmetic “Before and After” simulated pictures in just minutes to give our patients a sneak preview of how great they can look with teeth whitening, veneers, closing gaps, gum surgery, and replacing missing teeth. Thanks to our smile designing technology, patients can get excited about the treatment before starting the work because they no longer have to guess what they may look like with their new smile makeover.
Soft tissue lasers are used for periodontal (gum) surgeries. These lasers are more efficient, cause less discomfort, promote a faster healing time, and decreased risk of infection, providing a better outcome.
