Our newly renovated, state of the art office works to provide our patients with the most comfortable experience possible.
When it comes to precise diagnosis and treatment, we strive to offer our patients the best technology science has devised. That’s why we’ve equipped our office with some of the finest dental technologies available as described below.
Digital Radiographs (X-rays)
We utilize the newest type of dental radiographs known as ”Digital Radiographs”. These are computerized digital radiographic images of your mouth and teeth that are stored in the computer when they are taken. They can be instantly viewed on the computer monitor and can be computer enhanced and magnified to better display any decay, abscess, bone loss or any other problem that may be present. One major advantage to Digital
Radiography is that it uses only 20% of the radiation that traditional x-rays require, greatly reducing your exposureto x-ray radiation.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
This machine is a special type of x-ray equipment that is used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. This technology is used to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.
During a cone beam CT examination, the C-arm or gantry rotates around the head in a complete 360-degree rotation while capturing multiple images from different angles that are then reconstructed to create a single 3-D image. This is then sent directly to computer for your dentist to access. It can provide your dentist or oral surgeon with valuable information about your oral and craniofacial health!
Every patient record is now securely stored on our computer. The ease in which we can store, retrieve and compare information makes treatment much easier. We now have more information at our fingertips available to answer all your questions regarding insurance
information, your specific treatment needs or about treatment for one of your family members.
“A picture is worth a thousand words.” With our Intra-oral Digital Camera, you will be able to see what your mouth or even individual teeth look like close-up. The Intra-oral camera hand-piece is approximately the size and shape of a dental mirror. It has a built-in light source, so it gives us easy-to-see video and still pictures. The image from the camera is instantly displayed on a computer monitor so you can see what we see. This will allow you to better understand the condition of your mouth so you can make more informed decisions regarding your dental treatment. We want you to be a fully informed patient before you make any decision regarding your dental care.
One of the benefits of a brand new office is brand new equipment. Our state of the art Sterilization Center provides a system for thoroughly cleaning, sterilizing and storing our instruments. We use a cassette system to organize and store our instruments similar to what is used in hospitals. These sterile packets are opened just prior to seating the patient in the exam room. Disposable barriers are also used whenever possible to help protect each patient from cross contamination.
