Digital Imaging
Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Our doctors choose carefully when it comes to using radiographs (X-Rays), and there are many guidelines that we follow in order to keep the process safe and effective.

Radiographs enable us to:

  • Detect cavities in between your teeth
  • Determine bone level
  • Analyze the health of your bone
  • Examine the roots and nerves of teeth
  • Diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors
  • Assess damage when trauma occurs

Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating and maintaining dental health. Our doctors have the ability to utilize Digital Imaging Technologies within our dental office, allowing us to quickly and easily transfer radiographs to specialists or insurance companies, and saving our patients time and energy.

Benefits of digital radiography are:

  • Exposure time for dental radiographs is about 50 percent less than traditional radiographs
  • Digital X-rays results with 1/6th the radiation exposure to you
  • Digital imaging can help us retrieve valuable information; for example, diagnosing cavities more accurately
  • More precise than traditional radiographs since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a small x-ray film up to the light

Laser Dentistry
In dentistry, these targets can be:

  • Enamel
  • Decay
  • Gum tissue
  • Whitening enhancers

Benefits of laser dentistry are:

  • Can be used for both tooth and soft tissue related procedures
  • Often times no local anesthesia is required
  • There is no heat or vibration, making the procedure quite comfortable for most patients
  • For soft tissue (surgical) procedures it eliminates the need for suturing and healing is much faster
  • Can be used to diagnose cavities: they can help the dentist detect tooth at an early stage so that the filling can be conservative
