A dental team’s skill and commitment to quality are absolutely vital. However, we could not serve our patients as well as we do without the aid of advanced technology. Our practice has invested in some of the latest innovations in the world of dentistry — all with the goal of helping our patients enjoy the most efficient, comfortable, and effective care experience possible.

Digital X-Rays give us a close look at your teeth and the bones that support them. We are thus able to diagnose issues that we could not see with the naked eye, including problems beneath the gumline. The X-Ray process is quick and painless, and we are able to immediately access the images. Even better, digital X-Rays produce up to 90% less radiation than their film counterparts, making them an ultra-safe way for us to keep an eye on your oral health.
While digital X-Rays are extremely valuable, we sometimes need an even more detailed view of the hard and soft tissues in a patient’s mouth. Our CBCT scanner, sometimes referred to as a cone beam scanner, uses a cone-shaped beam of radiation to produce a three-dimensional image of the teeth, jaw, nerves, and more. We often use it when we are planning for complex or delicate procedures, such as dental implant placement or root canal therapy.
Accurate dental impressions are a key part of the process for designing well-fitting crowns, bridges, and porcelain veneers. While many practices still use old-fashioned manual impressions, we have upgraded to digital impressions. Patients no longer have to deal with uncomfortable impression trays and the gooey material that fills them. All we do is move a wand around the mouth. It captures thousands of images and assembles them into an accurate digital representation of your teeth.
