Types of Dental Technology
Whether you need a routine checkup, restorative treatments, or preventive care, our cutting-edge dental tools can help give you a healthier smile with less time and hassle.
Our doctors keep abreast of the latest dental technology to make your care more convenient and effective.
We also value these types of technology because they can give patients a better understanding of their dental needs. Some of our innovative technology includes:
With digital x-rays your doctor can view your teeth, gums, and underlying structures in higher detail and resolution, making diagnoses more precise than ever before. This method is also better for patients, since it allows them to immediately view images and better understand any conditions that require attention. Even better, digital x-rays are 96 percent radiation-free.
CariVu™ Cavity Detection
The CariVu detection system consists of a handheld wand your dentist uses to scan your teeth. The specialized light that is emitted from the device is entirely safe, even for pregnant women, and radiation-free. CariVu is especially helpful in finding hidden or hard-to-see caries (tooth decay) and cracks. By helping us catch problems in their earliest stages, we can better protect your overall oral health.
ViziLite Oral Cancer Screening
ViziLite technology consists of a handheld device that utilizes fluorescent light to detect abnormal tissue development in the mouth. This preventive measure is highly useful in oral cancer screenings, and can help your doctor catch symptoms before they are visible to the naked eye. Oral cancer is one of the most curable types of cancer with early intervention.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns
Our CEREC machine uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to customize your dental crown in our office. With precise 3-D imaging, the machine shapes and polishes your restoration in one office visit, so that you can save the time and money necessary for a temporary crown.
WaterLase Dental Laser
The WaterLase dental laser allows us to efficiently treat a range of dental needs while minimizing post-operative discomfort. With laser therapy, we can treat small cavities without the need for anesthesia and perform various gum surgeries, whether for health or cosmetic reasons. In addition, your doctor can provide crown lengthening, frenectomies, and tooth extractions with minimized risk of side effects like bleeding and infection.
Invisalign® Clear Orthodontics
Invisalign is an orthodontic system that involves the use of clear plastic aligner trays to gently shift your teeth into better alignment. This is a more convenient and comfortable method than traditional metal braces, since the trays are discreet and you can remove them to eat and clean your teeth.
Zoom!® Laser Teeth Whitening
Our in-office teeth whitening involves applying a specialized whitening solution to your teeth and then exposing it to an ultraviolet (UV) light. This process allows the whitening agent to safely bleach discoloration in the dentin and enamel in under an hour.
