No-Waiting-Time Digital X-rays
With digital X-rays, images are available immediately for viewing on our computer screen. No chemicals are used in the process, and digital means 75% less radiation than conventional X-rays. Only one image is necessary, as it captures both upper and lower dental arches in one panoramic scan.
Intra-Oral Camera Lets You See for Yourself
One of our goals is to create a bond with patients through teamwork. Technology makes this possible with an amazing miniature video camera known as the intra-oral camera. This camera produces a clear and close-up picture of your mouth that reveals which teeth need work and which teeth are just fine. Like other patients, you will be impressed with how this works!
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Commonly called “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide sedation makes treatments easy and comfortable for patients. A mask is placed over the mouth and nose, and the sedative is inhaled to induce a relaxed state. Local anesthesia is also given together with laughing gas, which eliminates all pain in most cases.
With Vibraject™, you won’t feel a thing! No kidding! These devices give gentle vibrations at the place of injection. As nerve endings pick up the vibrating sensation, the insertion of the needle is not felt.
We are proud to be among the first dental practices to offer this technology to our patients and eliminate the fear of needles due to associated pain.
Isolite™ for Patient Comfort
Isolite™ is an incredible new technology that provides a brilliant light to illuminate the interior of your mouth and also acts as a suction device. How does this translate to comfort for you?
- The time spent in the dental chair is reduced generally by about one-third.
- No longer will you have that gagging feeling from saliva building up.
- You won’t have any concern about debris being swallowed as it is continually “vacuumed.”
- You won’t have jaw fatigue from holding your mouth open.
Today’s dentistry needs a dry area for best results. Isolite™ keeps both teeth and gums very dry and eliminates the use of a bulky rubber dam.
