Our dentists and dental hygienists use digital dental x-rays to detect cavities between the teeth and to check bone levels during your dental examination. Digital x-rays require a much lower radiation exposure than the traditional film of the past, and the software tools help us study diagnostic x-rays in greater detail.
Our patients enjoy the educational value of viewing x-rays of their own teeth as we explain our dental exam findings.
The Wand® Electronic Dental Anesthesia
Perhaps our most popular dental technology is our electronic anesthesia system, The Wand® - we use this to deliver local dental anesthetic during restorative procedures for a more pleasant experience.
By steadily and consistently regulating the medication flow and pressure of the anesthetic injection, The Wand® helps eliminate the discomfort many people feel from traditional dental “shots”.
Soft Tissue Lasers
Our dentists use dental laser technology for soft tissue procedures, such as gum contouring around dental crowns or for treatment of periodontal (gum) disease. Dental lasers are designed to remove soft tissue in very small increments, helping to make procedures more comfortable for the patient.
Dental soft tissue lasers are also commonly used for soft tissue biopsies and minor gum surgeries. The dental laser fiber tip uses electric energy to remove tissue with minimal bleeding during the procedure, with reduced healing times.
