Invisalign is the breakthrough technology that lets both children and adults have the smile you’ve always wanted without the hassle of braces. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. An average Invisalign course of treatment takes only 9-12 months!
The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step-by-step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike conventional braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual. [ Read More… ]
Single Visit Crowns & Veneers
We are proud to provide CEREC Technology to our patients. The CEREC system has revolutionized the dental field by saving patients time. Gone are the days where the patient must return for multiple visits to get their crown while it is being made in a lab. No temporary crown, no gooey impressions. CEREC Technology can design, fabricate and place your crown while you wait! Also with this technology, we can save more healthy tooth structure while giving them beautiful, tooth-colored restorations that are metal-free and durable. Contact us for more information on this high-tech system.
3D Imaging & Surgical Implants
In order to provide the best dental care possible, we invested in the latest technology in dental diagnostics, the Sirona GALILEOS 3D Dental Cone Beam CT Imaging System. Our office is one of the first in the state to offer this cutting-edge technology!
Cone beam imaging goes beyond traditional X-rays by producing 3D imagery that is a virtual mirror image of our patients, using the lowest radiation possible.
With GALILEOS, a single scan provides a complete and comprehensive image of the jaw during your visit, and immediate diagnosis and treatment planning is usually possible during a single visit. The advanced imagery enables diagnosis of problems that are undetectable by conventional imaging techniques, which allows for more precise treatment plans.
In addition, we now offer surgical implants using the GALILEOS implant software. The 3D guided implant surgery significantly reduces the margin for error compared to traditional implant technology.
Benefits of Sirona Galileos 3D Imaging:
- Lowest radiation possible
- Comfortable scan of the mouth, face, and jaw
- Immediate diagnosis and treatment planning in one visit
- Increased accuracy in diagnosis of existing problems
- Precise implant surgery offered in-house
- Easy sharing of images with referring doctors
We offer one of the latest technological advances in dentistry with Digital X-Rays. A sensor is placed in the mouth, and a computer generates a full screen image in one second as opposed to several minutes with typical dental film. These X-rays can also be enhanced and enlarged so we can easily show you problem areas and help with diagnosis. Not only are they friendly to the environment, they are much safer than traditional X-rays. Digital radiographs reduce a patient’s radiation exposure by 90 percent!
X-rays are essential in determining dental problems, but it may not reveal everything happening inside your mouth. We are proud to utilize an intraoral camera in our office.
An intraoral camera can project an image of your tooth onto a monitor, so you can see the problem in a magnified version and how we can correct the issue. It can also identify problems that may not be detected by the general means of examination, including cracks in your fillings or fractured teeth. Similar to the size and design of a dental mirror, an intraoral camera allows you to make better decisions regarding your treatment as you can see the same things we see.
DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Detector
Did you know that half of the cavities found in your teeth could go undetected by current diagnostic techniques? However, our office now offers a new diagnostic method that can more accurately detect cavities in teeth.
We offer a unique service that can detect cavities at the earliest stage. The DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Detector is over 90 percent accurate in detecting even the smallest cavities that don’t even appear on X-rays! Early detection enables us to preserve more of your tooth and protect your teeth.
The DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Detector boasts a high patient acceptance and satisfaction with its quick, simple and painless nature.
