Our state-of-the art dental technology allows for us to offer our patients services that are faster, better and less intrusive than most people might imagine.

VIEW TECHNOLOGIES

Digital Radiography

  • Creates instant images that can be used to examine teeth
    and soft tissue for cavities, decay, cysts and tumors.
  • Allows for magnification, colorization, and measurement to
    give you the highest level of accuracy.
  • Reduces radiation exposure.
  • Increases speed of development and lessens chair time.
  • Allows for better patient education and interaction.
  • State of the art Dental Diode Laser Technology
  • Use in Periodontal treatments by removing bacteria and disease tissue
  • Cold sore treatment
  • Gum recontouring
  • Safe, comfortable, and helps improve healing

Sure, there are other options out there for straightening your teeth, but none offers the level of comfort, convenience and confidence that you’ll find with Invisalign®. And no matter what stage you’re at in life, you’ll appreciate how our cutting-edge approach to treatment has minimal interference in how you live, but has a significant positive impact on how you look and feel about yourself.

While the results may appear the same as metal braces—a confident, beautiful smile—when you stop and actually compare Invisalign® to other teeth-straightening options, the advantages become quite apparent. Knowing the pros and cons of each option ahead of time will help you make a more confident decision.

One of the most revolutionary techniques in teeth whitening, ZOOM® Advance Power™ combines a whitening gel activated by a specially designed and patented blue plasma arc light. ZOOM® Advance Power™ uses the brightest, most powerful chairside lamp – nothing whitens better or faster. It is considered one of the fastest teeth whitening systems, and can fit easily in the most hectic of schedules. If you choose the in-office teeth whitening option, your teeth can look up to eight shades lighter in just one hour. If you choose the in-home option, your teeth can look up to six shades lighter in just three days—and with additional applications—can go even lighter.

The superior optics and broad focal range of Polaris deliver exceptional image quality to enhance your patient diagnosis and case presentation. The only caries detection aid that works like Doppler radar to discover caries earlier, as well as plaque and calculus.

  • Uses fluorescence to detect caries in fissures and smooth surfaces that may go unnoticed in X-ray images.
  • In active mode carious regions appear red, while healthy enamel appears green.
  • After capturing the image within your existing imaging software, the extent of the decay will be interpolated and indicated in two ways-and only Spectra can do this:
    1. The color will be either blue, red, orange or yellow
    2. A numerical indicator between 0 and 5 will be shown.
  • Can be used during the restorative phase to verify that all caries have been removed.
  • Detects decay hidden between the margins of existing composite and amalgam restorations.

The deep penetrating power of the Identafi® multiple wavelengths will enhance the early detection of mucosal abnormalities that may be cancerous.

The new Identafi® uses the Identafi® Multi-Spectral Fluorescence and Reflectance technology to enhance visualization of mucosal abnormalities such as oral cancer or premalignant dysplasia that may not be apparent to the naked eye. But unlike other fluorescence technologies and dye systems, the Identafi® is Multi-Spectral with three distinct color wavelengths, making it easier to distinguish lesion morphology and vasculature aiding the dental professional in determining next steps.

The Identafi® uses white, violet and amber wavelengths of light to excite oral tissue in distinct and unique ways. As a result, biochemical changes can be monitored with fluorescence, while morphological changes can be monitored with reflectance. The combined system of fluorescence and reflectance uses the body’s natural tissue properties as an adjunctive tool for oral mucosal examination. Conventional examination of tissue is performed using a highly concentrated White light.

Wearing reusable Identafi® filtered eyewear to enhance visual effects and allow transmission of reflected light, the health professional then switches to Violet for a second observation.

The clinician’s photosensitive glasses block the violet excitation light and allow the observance of the tissues natural fluorescence. Violet light enhances normal tissue’s natural fluorescence; however, suspicious tissue appears dark because of its loss of fluorescence.

When suspect abnormalities are present the selector is switched to Amber light, which enhances normal tissue’s reflectance properties so the clinician may directly observe the difference between normal and abnormal tissue’s vasculature. This independent view of vascular architecture may assist in the assessment of confounders when screening for oral cancer.

Studies indicate abnormal tissue has a diffuse vasculature, where normal tissue vasculature is clearly defined. The combination of all three Multi-Spectral wavelengths provides the clinician with more visual information, improved results over direct visual exam alone and increased confidence for recommending biopsies.
