Cerec

Cerec is the best! This is the technology that allows us to do the “crown in a day” thing you may have heard about. We’ve had it since 2012 and it gets better and better each year. We use this machine to digitally image, design, and mill your restoration and can typically do it in under two hours. Our patients are constantly impressed with it, and we oftentimes walk into the room to find them taking pictures or videos of the machine in action!

Cone Beam 3D X-rays

Unlike most dentists, we use 3D imaging instead of 2D. Using 3D imaging produces the highest quality images possible leading to the most accurate diagnosis and planning. The Sirona SL produces far superior images at drastically reduced radiation compared to older dental CT machines even from a few years ago. This allows us to review your entire dental health including teeth, nerves, bone, sinuses, TMJ, oral pathology and airway.  With this information, we can improve the quality and efficiency of all dental work and often diagnose problems before they cause discomfort.

Additionally, we are able to merge our Cerec data to plan perfect implant placements. This greatly reduces implant complications, discomfort, and drastically shortens the surgical appointment time.

Worried about radiation? Please watch this quick video about how much radiation you are actually receiving with dental X-rays and specifically a CT. He talks about the Galileos CT, which is a larger machine than ours. Our SL puts out even less than the machine that he is speaking about and it even has an extra low-dose setting for children. We’ve seen Dr. Tyndall speak on a few occasions and he is definitely a leading authority on radiation as he’s been studying it for years at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry.

Lasers

Waterlase: This is the Rolls Royce of dental lasers and we are very fortunate to have it. What does it do? A ton! We can use it to treat gummy smiles (before and after pics) Hate the sound of the drill? Oftentimes, we can use it to prep basic cavities instead of using a drill! Please ask us about it.

Infant and Adult Frenectomies (please see pregnancy/new mom section for infants): What the heck is a frenectomy and who needs one? Sometimes the attachment of the lips to the gums (frenums) are too high and can cause the gums to recede. A frenectomy is a simple procedure to lower the attachments so the gums stop receding. It typically takes about 10 min to complete the entire procedure. Most patients only report a little sensitivity that usually just lasts for a couple days afterward.

Treating cold sores and lip bites: These things suck when you get them. If treated with the laser it stimulates healing much more rapidly. Oftentimes, they will resolve in a couple days instead of a couple weeks. The earlier we treat them the better, so give us a call and we can get you in right away.If you want to learn more specifically about this laser you can at waterlase.com

Epic: We LOVE this laser. It is a diode and almost everyone in our office is certified to use it. Our hygienists use this laser to assist with gum therapies, in conjunction with basic cleanings and with “deep cleanings”.  It helps control the infection in your mouth that causes gum disease and loosens the attachment of tartar to your teeth before we remove it…meaning less scrapping.   If we notice your gums bleeding then we will probably recommend doing a laser treatment.  It works wonders and we have been thrilled with the results.

We also use this laser to do laser whitening. If you are prone to sensitivity with whitenings, this is the best option out there to help minimize this.  Most patients report little to no sensitivity afterward. We love our results with the laser whitening, so please ask about it at your next appointment if you are interested in brightening up your smile!

Canary: This has been a wonderful addition to our armamentarium. Dental xrays are great, but they are lacking in a few areas. This is where the Canary fits in. This laser measures the crystallization of tooth structure or lack thereof. We use this laser primarily to check the biting surface of the tooth for cavities. It also works well to check the depth of fractures and for cavities around existing restorations that are tough to see on an x-ray. Does it replace x-rays, no, but it is a great adjunct and helps us feel very confident in our diagnosis.

TekScan

Intraoral Camera

These have become pretty commonplace in dental offices because they are great for patient education. Do you want to see what we see? We’ll take a picture and put it up in front of you. We want you to feel knowledgeable about what is going on in your mouth and this is a great tool for doing so.

Digital X-rays

We hope that every dentist’s office has these by now! Digital X-rays are great because they require very little radiation and are safe for even pregnant women! They are fast to take and the image shows up immediately so we can blow it up and show you what’s going on!
