Digital Panoramic X-rays

  • Improved diagnosis. Images are high resolution and can be expanded and digitally enhanced to see initial stages of disease
Digital CBCT 3D X-rays

Benefits of Digital CBCT 3D X-rays

  • Currently the best method to diagnose chronic, asymptomatic infections, which often are invisible on 2D x-rays
  • Proper planning for implant and wisdom tooth removal surgery
  • Diagnose fractures, which may be invisible on 2D x-rays
  • Very small scan areas and cone-shaped x-ray beams reduce radiation by 400x compared to hospital cat-scans
  • Allows for 3D-printing of guides for dental implant and oral surgery
Digital Intra-oral Cameras

Benefits of Digital Intra-oral Cameras

  • Magnification of teeth to better view cavities or cracks
  • Improved patient education to better understand recommended treatment
Digital (Gag-free) Impressions

Benefits of Digital Gag-free Impressions

  • No runny impression material needed
  • No pressure on tongue or roof of mouth, which may trigger a gag-reflex
  • Mess-free clean up
  • No unpleasant tastes
  • Digital impressions have been proven to be more accurate than regular impressions due to less room for human error
Digital Labwork

Benefits of Digital Labwork

  • Less remakes. Get your work done right the first time.
  • Using a computer, dental labs can better visualize the finish line on teeth where dental work will be cemented, thereby improving the final seal and longevity of the restoration.
  • Dentures made by hand traditionally shrink during fabrication and do not fit. Computer designed and milled dentures do not have shrinkage and have excellent fit.
  • Crowns, Bridges, and Veneers made by hand often need adjustment to achieve adequate fit. Dental work designed and fabricated by computer most always has a precise, accurate fit
CEREC Same Day Dentistry

Benefits of CEREC Technology

  • Receive porcelain dental work in one visit: including fillings, onlays, crowns, veneers, bridges, and implant crowns
  • Metal-free. No metal shadows at the gum-line
  • Computer-Aided-Design, Computer-Aided-Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) provides a precise fit for dental work, which improves restoration longevity
  • Made with advanced porcelain strong enough to support bridgework
3D Printing

Benefits of 3D Printing

  • For dental restorations, a 3D-printed, resin model of the teeth is more resistant to abrasion and results in less error during work in the lab.
  • For oral surgery, bony structures can be 3D-printed to help prepare for trauma repair and tumor removal
  • For dental implant treatment, a 3D-printed guide can be fabricated for the surgery, allowing for implant placement to replicate a mock-surgery previously performed on a computer. The procedure is done much faster and without stitches.
Diode Laser

Benefits of Diode Lasers

  • Accelerated healing when used for soft tissue removal
  • Improved accuracy in crown impressions where the laboratory can better visualize finish lines and create dental restorations with longer-lasting seals.
  • For deep cleanings, we can sterilize diseased periodontal pockets, which allows for healthy bacteria to recolonize the tissues.
  • When caught early, troublesome canker sores can be removed
Oral Conscious Sedation


Here are some of the most common drugs used in oral conscious sedation:

Valium® – This sedative has amnesic properties and a long half-life. It is usually used for time-consuming, complex procedures.
Halcion® – Usually used to treat insomnia, Halcion is an effective sedative with amnesic properties.  A short half-life makes this sedative useful for shorter procedures.
Ativan® – This sedative is best known for reducing anxiety.  It has amnesic properties and a medium half-life.  Ativan is typically used for treatments shorter than two hours.

Benefits of Oral Conscious Sedation

  • Reduced dental anxiety
  • Often has an amnesia effect similar to IV sedation
  • Medical insurance usually covers the prescription
  • It’s safe and wears off shortly after the appointment
Smile Design

When you are ready for cosmetic treatment, we will first design your new smile in wax on a model of your teeth. A template is then made, where we use acrylic to “try” the smile design in the mouth. This allows for you and your doctor to see what the final restorations will look like. The template can be used for bonding tooth-colored filling material to teeth, or it can be digitally copied to fabricate crowns and veneers in the exact shape of the teeth desired.

 

Benefits of Smile Design

  • Allows the patient to better understand the aesthetics of the final result before starting treatment
  • When performing a complete smile remodel, the process is accelerated for the patient, the doctor, and especially the lab
  • Eliminates guesswork for the laboratory
