Our available technology includes the following:

Caries Detection

CariVu imagesOur caries detection device allows us to diagnose and manage areas of decay at the earliest possible stages. In some cases, we can even successfully treat the area with preventive intervention.

Digital Bitewings

Digital bitewings allow us to capture details regarding the upper and lower teeth in a single area of the mouth. This is useful in detecting decay between teeth and any changes to your bone that may be caused by gum disease. We can also better determine the fit of dental crowns. Many patients have unpleasant memories of painful intraoral bitewings, but we utilize extraoral bitewings for added patient comfort.

Panoramic X-rays

Complete dental x-raysPanoramic radiography allows us to capture the entire mouth in a single image, including the teeth, both upper and lower jaws, and any surrounding structures or tissues. We commonly use this machine to learn crucial information about the positions of certain teeth, irregularities in the gum and bone, and as a planning tool for full and partial dentures and implants.

Laser Dentistry

Sol laser systemOur revolutionary soft tissue laser allows our team to treat periodontal disease more precisely and effectively than ever before. The area is instantly sterilized as well during the procedure, which minimizes bleeding and eliminates the need for messy sutures.

VELscope
