With advanced technology, we can provide our patients with better dental care and more accurate treatment. Investing in advanced technology is one way we invest in the smiles of our patients!
The intraoral camera is similar in size to a pen and is used to take a closer look inside your mouth. With the intraoral camera, your dentist can get a closer look at your teeth and gums as the camera shows images on a screen in real-time. Your dentist can also let you look at your smile in real-time so you can better understand the dental concern if there is something that needs to be addressed. An intraoral camera can detect issues such as plaque deposits, cracked teeth or cavities next to fillings. Catching dental problems early can save you money and save your teeth from further damage.
For a quick and painless look at your smile, digital x-rays give your dentist a more comprehensive look into your entire mouth. Digital x-rays produces detailed imaging that provides clearer photos than traditional x-rays. Digital x-rays also are safer for patients as they use less radiation. This also allows your dentist to store digital images of your smile for future reference and also send your dental images to a specialist right away if needed.
Single Tooth Anesthesia™ (STA) Delivery System
STA is an advanced technology that makes injections much more comfortable and convenient. STA uses The Wand®, the first computer-controlled local anesthetic delivery (C-CLAD) system. With this Wand technology, dentists can more effectively prepare your tooth for treatment without extra pain or discomfort. This technology helps us determine the best place for the anesthesia and helps it last longer. Plus, the numbness is limited to the tooth that is being treated, rather than numbing the entire mouth. This gives patients a better experience following treatment.
Kavo DIAGNOdent helps our team detect decay at the smallest level, plus aids in tooth preservation. This device helps save our patients from advanced tooth damage and allows us to treat dental problems early. Kavo DIAGNOdent gives your dentist proper information for diagnosing and treating your smile.
