Technology

We are proud to offer modern dental technology and techniques to our patients so you can enjoy the most comfortable, efficient, and effective dentistry possible. 

Feel free to read on to learn more about the technology we use in our practice.

Digital X-Rays

Panoramic dental x-rays benefit patients in a number of ways: 

  • Digital x-rays expose patients to considerably less radiation than conventional film x-rays
  • Digital x-rays require almost no time for development, reducing time spent waiting in the dental chair
  • Digital x-rays allow for incredibly precise and accurate images for timely diagnoses
  • Digital x-rays are securely stored in your digital file and can be securely sent to your insurance company or specialists, when necessary
  • Because no chemicals are needed for developing and no space is needed for film storage, digital x-rays are better for the environment.

Panoramic X-Rays

Panoramic x-rays offer a full view of your mouth, teeth, and jaw joints. Dr. Cathy can use these x-rays to evaluate wisdom teeth, diagnose jaw joint degeneration, and plan for orthodontics and implant procedures.

Nitrous Oxide

Laughing gas helps you relax during your visit. It takes just a few minutes to take effect and is quickly reversible. We can add laughing gas onto any appointment – whether it is a cleaning or an extraction!
 

Rotary Endodontics

Endodontics, or root canal therapy has long been regarded as a painful procedure when this couldn't be further from the truth! The pain you're experiencing is likely from your dental infection, while the root canal procedure itself will alleviate your pain.
Rotary tools are made of nickel titanium, which is flexible and can reach the inner canals of your tooth much easier. They are also electric, which makes the procedure even quicker and more efficient for patients.

Intraoral Cameras

What if you could see exactly what your dentist sees? You'd probably find it simpler to make informed decisions about your oral health! 

Intraoral cameras allow you to do precisely that. Using a small digital camera embedded in a wand, the dentist can move it around your mouth and transmit the images instantly to a chairside monitor. This allows you to clearly see everything the dentist describes, including damage to the teeth and signs that might indicate periodontal disease.
