TechnologyBetter technology for better outcomes

We know that keeping up with the latest technology is tough. One day you’ve got the latest, hottest smartphone, the next it’s yesterday’s garbage. Thankfully, our dentists are passionate about giving our patients the best treatment available, and our investment in the latest technology means a better experience, and better outcomes for our patients.

Better technology means:

  • Less invasive procedures
  • Less time spent in the dental chair
  • More comfort, less pain
  • Faster recovery time
  • Longer lasting results
  • More natural looking restorations
  • Stronger, more durable treatments
  • Earlier detection of disease & decay
  • Better oral health

Western43D Imaging

3D dental imaging with our Cone Beam CT scanner gives your doctor a more accurate portrait of your teeth, gums, and jaws. In many cases, modern imaging removes the need to take molds. 3D imaging also allows us to design appliances, prosthetics, and other treatment solutions that take into account the idiosyncrasies of your mouth.*

Air Abrasion

Air abrasion is a new way for your dentist to remove decay and perform other procedures without the use of a drill. Air abrasion uses a fine stream of particles like a sandblaster to remove decay in a way that is more conservative in nature, and causes much less anxiety for patients than a drill.*

Digital X-rays

Historically, x-rays had to be developed in darkrooms. Now, in a matter of moments you can see the digital image on your dentist’s computer screen. Digital x-rays are fast and also allow the patient to better participate in their own diagnosis and treatment planning.

Intraoral Camera

Our intraoral camera allows us to gain a closer and more accurate understanding of what’s going on inside your mouth. In the past where we had to rely on the magic of sight with the help of a tiny mirror, we can now get an up close and personal, high resolution image to help us better detect decay and disease like periodontitis and oral cancer.

Laser Dentistry

Laser therapies can result in quicker treatments, fewer side effects, less pain and faster healing. Your dentist uses a high-tech Pioneer® laser as a less invasive alternative to traditional surgery.  Could you benefit from laser dentistry? Find out today!

CEREC® Milling Machine

CEREC® stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. Essentially, this is a high-tech piece of equipment that brings an entire dental lab – where we used to have to send your impressions for restorations to be created – into a single piece of technology right here in our office to be created and placed the very same day.*

Painless Injections

Let’s face it, nobody likes getting shots. That’s why we’ve invested and received advanced training in DentalVibe® painless injections, to make sure your experience is as comfortable as possible.
