Our doctors use the latest and most advanced technology to bring you the best dental treatment available. You can read about some of the equipment we use to care for your teeth and gums below.
Using images captured by our CT scanner, surgical guides are fabricated that identify the exact location where dental implants are to be placed.
Our doctors also use the Kavo diode laser for pocket disinfection. This laser effectively kills harmful bacteria that can cause gum disease, and can also be used to treat inflamed or bleeding gums.
Platelets rich in growth factors
To accelerate recovery time, our doctors can harness the growth factors from a patient’s own blood by using an in-house centrifuge and lab. This greatly reduces the time needed for the gums to heal.
Emdogain tissue regeneration
Our doctors will often use Emdogain® growth proteins when treating tissue loss due to gum disease. This advanced regeneration formula promotes both soft tissue and hard tissue regrowth, and has been scientifically proven to help rejuvenate difficult or problematic areas affected by periodontal disease.
Intraoral cameras are small handheld digital cameras that project an enlarged image of the inside of your mouth onto a computer screen. We use intraoral photography as an exam, treatment planning, and educational tool for our patients.
Digital X-rays are high-speed X-rays that use 80% less radiation than film X-rays. They allow our doctors to examine fine details such as early forming cavities. Digital X-rays can be displayed on a monitor so that we can show our patients any problem areas and discuss treatment options.
We use digital photography and special software to visualize your cosmetic makeover before beginning any treatment. You and your doctor can use this tool to manipulate the final image, ensuring that your new smile is just what you had in mind.
Ultrasonic scalers use high-frequency vibrations in combination with a water flow to gently and effectively remove deep stains, plaque and tartar. The tiny tip allows for comfortable access to the roots when deeper cleaning is needed. Overall, ultrasonic scalers make cleanings faster and more efficient.
Arestin antibiotic therapy
After a deep cleaning, our doctors will often apply Arestin antibiotic therapy to your gum pockets. Arestin is a time-released topical antibiotic that targets gum disease-causing bacteria. This treatment can greatly reduce the chances of gum disease returning or worsening in the future.
Zoom! WhiteSpeed is a scientifically advanced laser teeth-whitening procedure that is applied in our office. It’s the perfect affordable, convenient solution for people seeking immediate results. Now with the most advanced Light Emitting Diode (LED) whitening technology, the results are even better than ever.
This ultrasonic generator can be set to use a wavelength that bypasses soft-tissues, such as membranes and blood vessels, and only cuts the hard-tissues of the tooth. Our doctors use the Piezotome for procedures such as bone grafting and sinus lifts, extractions and occasionally during implant procedures. The Piezotome creates very thin, precise incisions that make healing faster, and with little to no postoperative pain.
Radiosurgery uses a tiny wavelength to create delicate incisions without expanding heat to outlying areas. The fine radio wavelengths are more accurate than most lasers and promote fast healing rates. Our doctors use this tool during surgery and to precisely sculpt the gum tissue for many procedures, such as crown lengthening.
