3D CONE BEAM SCANNER
Our 3D cone beam scanner enables our team to create a highly detailed digital model of your entire mouth, including all of your teeth, both jaws, and the nearby structures. It does so by taking several X-rays from multiple angles, and then they are pieced together to create one cohesive image that we can rotate. This allows us to see all of a patient’s dental anatomy at once, plus it helps us plan more complex treatments like dental implant placement to ensure the procedure is as precise and comfortable as possible.
With an intraoral camera, you’ll finally be able to see your smile from your dentist’s point of view. This small, pen-sized device fits easily into the mouth and can capture high-resolution images of the teeth and gums we can then display on a large chairside monitor. This not only makes it much easier for us to catch dental issues early, but it will also make it much simpler for you to understand the current state of your dental health or why we might be suggesting a treatment.
Our dental office uses X-rays every day to catch dental problems that are invisible to the naked eye, and to make this tool even better, we’ve gone all digital. Digital X-rays can create crystal-clear images in seconds, they don’t require toxic chemicals to be developed, and even better, they emit up to 80% LESS radiation compared to traditional, film-based dental X-rays. Also, the images can be stored, sent, and copied instantly, making both referrals and filing for insurance a breeze.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Our soft tissue laser enables our in-house periodontist, Dr. Galvan, to perform a wide variety of gum-related procedures with relative ease. With this one tool, she can quickly eliminate bacteria hidden beneath the gum line, remove infected tissue, and even provide painless gum lifts to correct a “gummy” smile. It uses an extremely concentrated beam of light, and because of its accuracy, Dr. Galvan can complete a treatment without affecting the surrounding healthy gums, leading to a much easier experience and recovery overall.
If you’re the type of person who hates getting shots at the dentist, then we know you’ll love The Wand. It is a computer-assisted anesthesia administration device, which is just a fancy way of saying that it helps take away that little pinch before you go numb. A small, pen-like device first applies a topical anesthetic to an area before administering the rest extremely slowly and evenly. The end result? A patient basically feels nothing right before they feel nothing!
