Our digital x-ray technology is fast, safe and comfortable. We can capture high quality images of your teeth that help us look for early signs of tooth decay or other problems.
This laser cavity detector helps us identify tooth decay in the easiest-to-deal-with stage. This means we can provide you with more conservative treatment options.
Want to see your future? Digital imaging creates a preview of what your smile would look like after a particular dental procedure. This enables you to make a more informed decision about your treatment plan.
Oral Sedation/IV Sedation
If you have dental anxiety, ask about sedation dentistry options. We offer oral and IV sedation which will help you relax during your appointment.
Soft Tissue Laser
We use soft tissue lasers in periodontal therapy to kill bacteria in gum pockets. By eliminating the bacteria, we can prevent the spread of periodontal disease and help you achieve healthier gums.
This high-frequency periodontal tool is used for routine debridement of bacteria. The Piezo Scaler allows for very gentle routine cleanings.
We have over 100 CDs in our library, so you can enjoy your favorite tunes while we work on your smile. You are also welcome to bring your personal CDs or iPod.
