Latest Technology

 

The use of technology in our office allows us to enhance our patient's comfort, promote education, and deliver safe, effective treatment. Our office uses equipment and materials that have proven excellence.

 


Intraoral Camera

Intra Oral imageOur intraoral camera uses a tiny fiber-optic wand to easily take vivid photographs of the inside of your mouth. This will provide you with a tooth by tooth video exam of your teeth that you can see enlarged in living color on our computer screen in the treatment room. We can freeze and store the picture of the inside of your mouth for a bigger and better look and then take an instant photograph for your records.

This painless, no radiation technique allows us to let you see what we see. Problems such as worn-out fillings, fractured teeth, small cracks and fissures in the tooth anatomy. decay, trauma, bleeding gums and plaque can be magnified and clearly visible. Together we can discuss your treatment plan with you for restoring your mouth to optimal health.

With our intraoral camera:

  • You can better understand your dental needs by actually seeing what we see.
  • We can detect problem areas that could easily be missed with just a visual exam.
  • We can better monitor your treatment progress.


OralCDx

OralCDx represents a breakthrough in oral cancer detection, a test that will allow you and your dentist to improve the prognosis of a disease that has remained unchanged for the last 50 years.

OralCDx is the first computerized brush biopsy system. It allows dentists to quickly, painlessly and reliably detect oral cancer in its earliest, most easily treatable stage.

Originally developed as part of the “Star Wars” missile defense program, the OralCDx computer system includes a neural network-based image processing system specifically adapted to detect abnormalities unique to oral brush biopsy samples.


The Dental Chair Potato

Our Dental Chair Potato is an overhead multimedia display that allows patients to comfortably watch TV, intraoral camera or computer images, videos, or movies. The integrated fiber-optic dental light shines in the patient's mouth - not in the eyes, providing an unobstructed, glare-free, heat-free experience. Our patients are comfortable, relaxed and entertained while we are providing them with excellent dental care.

 


DIAGNOdent

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 x-ray exposure.


Ultrasonic Cleaning

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.


Power Bleaching

For In-Office bleaching, we utilize the advanced Zoom! light-activated process.Zoom!


Voice-activated Charting Software

This system connects a computer database to a wireless voice-activated headset so we can quickly, easily, and accurately record individual measurements when performing a periodontal exam. Because clinical data are recorded directly into the computer, the voice activated system reduces the potential for errors and allows for greater accuracy.

Veneers

New technology in veneer fabrication allows us to perform dazzling transformations with minimal surface preparation.

ViziLite™

Used in conjunction with a conventional visual examination, the ViziLite™ test improves identification, evaluation and monitoring of abnormalities in those at increased risk for oral cancer. The ViziLite™ Test Kit includes a handheld disposable light and mouth rinse that work together to help detect abnormalities that might not be visible to the unaided eye.
