office uses modern, state-of-the-art technology to enhance
patient comfort and to help you get the smile you deserve!
Computer Digital Radiography (CDR)
can now be taken using sensors that transmit the image
directly into a computer monitor. This larger image
helps the patient understand the doctor's explanations
more easily and enables the doctor to "zoom in"
on a specific area of the tooth. An important advantage
to this new technology is that it reduces the amount
of radiation by 90%. Digital x-rays are also faster.
The digital image only takes a minute or two to appear
in the monitor. In addition, this new technology is
friendly to the environment since no chemicals are needed
for developing the image.

The DIAGNOdent is a new high tech laser system that
aids in early diagnosis of cavities in the complex
anatomy of the chewing surfaces of teeth. It utilizes
laser light of a defined wavelength to help detect
and quantify demineralized tooth substances without
Air Abrasion is a gentle spray of an air and powder
that gently sprays away tooth decay. There is no heat,
vibration or sound, like there is from a drill. The
procedure is relatively painless, therefore not always
requiring an injection. Air abrasion is a very precise
technology and usually removes less tooth structure
for a filling than a drill would.
MicroDentistry means finding decay
as early as possible so that treatment can be done with
minimal removal of natural tooth structure. Restorations
(fillings) are the smallest possible,
esthetically pleasing, and long-lasting.
|The cavitron is an ultrasonic scaler. Power scalers
do a more thorough job in less time. This results in
significantly decreased scaling time and healthier,
cleaner teeth and gums. Hand scalers require repetitive
scraping movements and are restricted to adaptation
of only one or two sides of the instrument. In comparison,
all four sides of a power scaler can be adapted, because
the device moves in an elliptical motion. This comes
in handy when removing stain and deposits from behind
and between the teeth. Ultrasonic scalers are more effective
in removing stain as well. The ultrasonic vibration
helps control oral bacteria by breaking down the cell
wall of the bacteria. The water used to cool the cavitron
then helps to rinse away bacteria, stain and debris.
