Modern Dental Technology

  • Intraoral Cameras are handheld devices that stream a live video feed to a computer screen. Dentists use intraoral cameras to show patients an up-close view of their teeth and gums, and they can also be used to take high-quality pictures that can be added to the patient’s file.
  • Hard-Tissue Lasers are often used for treatments like dental fillings. While laser dentistry sounds intimidating, dental lasers are actually incredibly precise, which means just the decayed portion of the tooth is removed, and more of the healthy tooth can remain. They are also quieter than dental drills, which is perfect for patients with dental anxiety.
  • Soft-Tissue Lasers are used for gum tissue restoration and periodontal therapy. The precision of these treatments makes the experience more comfortable and decreases soreness afterward. These lasers also naturally sterilize soft tissues, which decreases the chance of an infection occurring.
  • Panoramic X-rays capture a panoramic view of the patient’s entire mouth all in one image. This is especially helpful for services like dental implants and orthodontic treatment plans, as it provides our team with a comprehensive view of how the teeth and jaws are interacting together.
