Our office uses the latest in digital x-ray technology. Digital x-rays offer a detailed image of your entire mouth and also offer up to 80% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
X-rays play an invaluable role in the diagnosis of dental problems, as well as provide a clear picture for a dentist to accurately diagnose and provide the necessary treatment.
We place a small sensor in your mouth. The sensor is connected to a computer by a thin wire. Next, an x-ray beam is sent through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to image other sections of your teeth.
The digital dental x-ray system is more sensitive than dental x-ray film systems, so your exposure to x-rays is cut by as much as 90 percent. The large and color-enhanced images let you see what your dentist sees, so it's easier for you to understand how your dentist will treat your teeth. Your dental checkups take less time, and it's fun to watch this system work! Most patients are amazed.
A cavitron is a dental tool that uses high frequency sound waves to clean teeth. These high frequency sound waves vibrate tartar and stains off your teeth. Water then flushes away the bacteria and plaque that build up on your teeth.
We provide our patients with an intra-oral video examination. This allows both the doctor and the patient to see the condition of the mouth at the same time, then discuss treatment options.
The Diagnodent is the latest in cavity detection. The Diagnodent can detect even the smallest cavities that even the trained eye of your dentist can miss, even while using magnification loupes!
The earlier the cavity can be detected, the sooner it can be removed and chances are, there will be minor, if any, pain involved.
Our office utilizes a computer system to organize your appointment information, health and dental records, etc. instead of paper forms to digitally protect records and personal information.
We use a powerful autoclave to sterilize equipment and dental instruments. This helps to safeguard against germs and contamination.
We start the Zoom whitening process by covering your lips and gums leaving only your teeth exposed. At this time, we can usually estimate how white your new smile will be by matching your teeth with a whitening shade and estimate approximately up to 8 shades whiter from here.
Next a high-strength proprietary whitening gel is applied to the surfaces of your teeth. This special gel is specifically designed to work with the Zoom whitening light.
The Zoom whitening light is placed directly in front of your teeth to maximize exposure to the gel. The special light activates the gel which gently penetrates the outer-most (enamel) layer of your teeth; breaking up stains and discoloration during the process.
Smile with confidence as you leave the office with a brighter, whiter smile!
We sterilize the water through high temp distilling rather than use city water to ensure germ free water for your protection.
