At our office, we are committed to utilizing advanced dental technology to always provide you with the highest level of dental care. We are proud to utilize cone beam 3D imaging technology at our dental practice. Cone beam 3D technology is an imaging system that provides our dentist and team with a three-dimensional image reconstruction of your teeth, mouth, jaw, neck, ears, nose, and throat. Our dentist may use dental cone beam 3D imaging to:

  • Plan dental implant placement
  • Evaluate the jaws and face
  • View the head and neck as a comprehensive whole
  • Diagnose tooth decay (cavities) and other dental problems
  • Detect endodontic problems and plan root canal therapy
  • Analyze dental and facial trauma
  • Plan and evaluate the progress of orthodontic treatment
  • Visualize abnormal teeth
  • Assess a TMJ disorder

Cone beam 3D imaging is effective for diagnosing and evaluating dental conditions, as well as planning treatments. One of the advantages of 3D cone beam technology is that it provides our dentist and team with a view of your mouth and supporting structures that is more comprehensive than that provided by digital X-rays. To learn more about cone beam 3D imaging and how it helps us provide you with exceptional care, we invite you to contact us today.

Our dentist and dental team work hard to stay current on the latest advances in dental technology and techniques. We utilize state-of-the-art dental technology, including CEREC® one-visit restorations, to help us provide you with the best possible dental care and experience. CEREC technology allows our team to provide you with a custom-made, high-quality dental restoration in a single visit to our office. Traditional dental technology required at least two visits to complete a dental restoration; CEREC technology saves you time and discomfort by eliminating the need for a second visit. With CEREC technology, we can create the following types of dental restorations in just one visit:

  • Dental crowns
  • Dental veneers
  • Dental inlays and onlays

With CEREC one-visit restorations, you will have no need for an uncomfortable temporary crown, veneers, or other restorations. In addition, CEREC uses advanced scanning technology to design the restoration, eliminating the need for messy impressions. CEREC one-visit restorations are created from high-quality porcelain that our dentist matches to your natural tooth color, so your restorations will look beautiful and natural for years to come. For more information on the advantages of CEREC one-visit restorations and our other advanced technology, we welcome you to call or visit us today.

Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and they require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our dentist can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:

  • Decay in between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

We may also use digital dental X-rays to plan certain kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, and more. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use X-rays at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us soon.
