Intraoral Camera

Rather than just telling you what is going on in your mouth, we can show you thanks to our intraoral camera. Small and thin, it makes it easy to take detailed pictures of your teeth and gums that we can show you on a nearby monitor. Now, you can see things from your dentist’s perspective, making your dental experience much more transparent.

Digital Impression System

Impressions involve our team making a model of a patient’s teeth so we can mock-up how a denture, veneers, crowns, or any number of treatments will look before we place them in someone’s mouth. Rather than relying on a cast using dental puddy, we can instead perform a quick and easy scan that is much more accurate than the traditional method. Not only is this approach faster, but it also makes it easier for our team and partnered labs to personalize treatments.

CT Scanner

A CT scanner is able to show us much more information compared to a typical dental X-ray. Rather than just revealing the underlying structure of a few teeth, it can show us a 3D map including all the teeth, both jaws, and even tiny facial nerves. We use it to establish a baseline for our patients when they first come in, and it also makes it easy for us to plan a wide variety of procedures, in particular surgical ones like dental implant placement.

Soft Tissue Laser

We use our soft tissue laser to perform a wide array of procedures, ranging from gum disease treatment to cosmetic gum lifts to lip/tongue tie correction and more. Rather than relying on incisions and sutures like in the past, focused light energy is able to precisely target the tissue that needs attention while leaving the rest of the area alone. This makes treatment more precise, less invasive, and more comfortable. Plus, the recovery time is a fraction compared to traditional methods.

Digital X-Rays

Our X-technology allows us to quickly capture high-definition images of the underlying structures of your teeth, including the roots and nearby bone. This helps us spot potential problems as early as possible, and we can show you these images to take you on a “backstage tour” of your smile, giving you a deeper understanding of your oral health.
