Digital X Rays
Digital x rays are an important diagnostic tool used to form a comprehensive overview of your current dental health. Digital x-rays admit significantly lower rates of radiation than traditional X-rays and provide a clearer image of your teeth and jaw. A small sensor is placed in the mouth with an x-ray sensitive chip that produces instant detailed images of your mouth. The images can be viewed on a computer screen and play a vital role in developing your personalized treatment plan.
The Waterlase system is a revolutionary laser device that reduces the need for invasive surgeries. BIOLASE can be used to treat periodontal disease, contour gum lines, or to treat hard tissue dental concerns such as tooth decay or bone grafting.
Intra Oral Camera
Intra Oral Cameras take digital images of your teeth and gums. Patients are able to watch their dentist explore their oral cavity live on a T.V. screen. Dentists are able to show patients trouble areas.
Oral Cancer Screening
VelScope has allowed for the earlier diagnosis of oral cancer. Oral cancer is on the rise and often goes undiagnosed until the later stages of the disease. Early diagnosis can be life-saving. VelScope allows your dentist to spot abnormal cell growth before it is visible to the human eye. Patients who use tobacco and alcohol or who have HPV are prone to oral cancer and should be screened for oral cancer at least once a year.
CBCT Digital Scanner
CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) takes 3D digital images of the teeth and jaw. The cone-shaped X-ray beam rotates around the head to develop a 3D digital image of the patient’s dentition. This diagnostic tool is commonly used in treatment planning for dental implants. CBCT dental implants tend to have higher success rates than traditionally placed implants.
The WAND is an innovative solution for administering local anesthetic. The Wand allows your dentist to control the amount of anesthesia being injected, greatly reducing the discomfort associated with receiving a local anesthetic. The pain patients often associate with receiving an anesthesia injection comes from the rush of fluid. The WAND computer controls and regulates the flow of the anesthesia being administered improving the delivery of local anesthesia and reducing patient discomfort.
