Bluetooth Wireless Headphones

Another major fear of patients is the sound of dental procedures. They can trigger a fear response or make people think pain is coming. To help with this, we provide all patients with headphones to cancel out the noise and help you relax. When you relax, it lets us finish much faster!

Digital X-Rays

X-rays are the foundation of dental diagnosis, and digital x-rays are the latest development in this technology. Using a digital system lets dentists use nearly 80% less radiation yet get far better clarity than traditional X-rays. Plus, our imaging program allows us to zoom in close to find problems while they are still small and easily treatable.

As part of this system, we also have drop-down monitors that can show you the X-ray so your dentist can explain your diagnosis and educate you on what procedures are needed.

Panoramic X-Ray

For some cases, we will need more imaging than what our digital X-ray can show. This is what our panoramic X-ray machine is for. It exposes parts of your jaw that can’t be seen otherwise. With a single session, we can view:

  • The mandibular nerve which provides sensation to the teeth and gums of the lower jaw.
  • Your entire upper and lower jawbone and any existing wisdom teeth.
  • Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) or jaw joints.
  • The nasal sinuses and their surrounding skeletal bone.
  • Cysts, tumors, and other pathologies ( infections ) in the jaw are readily seen now. These can often be missed when conventional single film x-rays are taken in the mouth.

Laser for Cleanings

Laser Bacterial Reduction therapy is a noninvasive procedure of killing bacteria that remains in the gums after a cleaning. LBR is accomplished by using the Biolase Epic X and Epic Hygiene Lasers. This high intensity light is focused on the gum line of the teeth. It is used to kill harmful bacteria in the mouth. Over long-term, the use of LBR in dental cleanings and as a supplement to other treatments for periodontal disease, can improve the overall health of teeth and gums and give the immune system a boost.

The Intra-Oral Camera

The dental mirror may be the classic tool of the dentist, but the intra-oral camera is far better. It lets both doctor and patient see the entire mouth on a monitor for inspection. You’ll get to see first-hand the same thing we are seeing. Also, we can take photos using this camera to prove to insurance companies that you need a procedure.

Rotary Endodontics (Root Canal)

Endodontics treat the inside of a tooth that is broken or infected. This is commonly called a root canal. This used to be a long and sometimes painful procedure. But new Rotary Endodontics tools help our team perform root canals in a faster and easier way with less pain.
