Our office employs many types of new technology.  These technologies benefit the patient by offering improved diagnosis and care.

Planmeca® ProMax Cone Beam Scanner 

Cone Beam technology provides a digital tomographic 3D view of the patient’s area of interest.  A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional.  With Cone Beam systems the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas.  The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology.  This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago.

Planmeca® ProMax Digital X-ray 

Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays.  The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment.  Digital x-rays are instant, so there is no longer a need to develop the film.  Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care.  It’s also a very green technology.  By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste, digital x-rays are better for both the patient and the environment!

Dolphin™ Electronic Medical Records (EMR) 

Using Electronic Medical Records, our practice is able to quickly and accurately access patient information in order to provide the utmost in patient care.  This helps to ensure patient confidentiality as well as reduce the need for paper.  Using a digital format allows for quick access to patient information when needed for insurance records while providing a secure filing system.

iTero® HD 2.9 Digital Intraoral Cameras 

An intraoral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and dentist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time.  With an intraoral camera, patients are able to better understand what is happening and review the status of their oral health.
