75% Reduction in Radiation
Let us introduce to you digital X-rays. These use an efficient
and quick technology that has 75% less radiation exposure than
traditional X-rays. A digital sensor is placed in your mouth,
and the image is available immediately on our computer screen.
It saves you time as there is no waiting for the development of
images and no polluting chemicals used in the process. In just
one shot, you can have a clear image of both your upper and
HealOzone™ – Ozone Treatment Reverses Tooth Decay
We are pleased to announce we are among the first dental
practices in the United States to treat dental decay without
drilling. This revolutionary new technology is called HealOzone.
Ozone gas can kill bacteria in just a short 40 seconds. Once we
detect any decay on the surface or within the tooth, we use a
suction cup to direct ozone to the decayed area. All bacteria is
eliminated and followed by a re-mineralizing bath of the tooth.
The tooth can then heal without shots or drilling, and there is
no discomfort or pain. No tooth structure is removed when an
application of ozone and fluid is given to re-mineralize it.
Studies from Belfast University have shown that only 10 seconds
of ozone kills 99% of bacteria, viruses, and fungi present in a
tooth. In one study, 99% of cavities ceased with the use of
ozone, whereas 80% of teeth that were left untreated had
cavities that became worse.
Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the Team
It is our goal to create teamwork in each dental decision with
every patient. We work together with you through the images
provided by the intra-oral camera. It is an amazing miniature
video camera that provides a close-up picture of your teeth. You
can easily view what teeth need work and which ones are just
fine. You will love how this works!
Isolite™ – An Advance in
In our treatments we use the latest advancements, and we are
pleased to offer you Isolite to make your dental care more
comfortable. This device provides both suction and a bright
light to view an oral cavity without shadows. How does this
translate to your comfort?
About one-third less time in the dental
No more gagging as saliva will not build up
The suction keeps debris from being swallowed
Mouth does not have to be continuously held open
Better illumination allows for accuracy in diagnosis
Today’s dentistry needs dryness in the interior of the mouth.
Isolite keeps both gums and teeth dry for best results while
eliminating the need for a rubber dam.
The Laser Scanner Finds Ultrasmall Cavities Years Earlier
Do you wonder why you just had a large filling placed in a tooth
when you had a cavity-free check-up just six months before? It
most likely was there at your last appointment, but didn’t show
up on X-rays and wasn’t visible yet.
We use the Laser Scanner to detect cavities in the early stages
when they can be repaired with a very small filling. In the
past, patients may have complained of pain or sensitivity, but
the source could not be pinpointed. The laser scanner will make
accurate assessments of decay so the correct treatment is given.
It will allow us to take care of the problem in the early stages
to let you keep a healthy smile.
Dentistry without Drills
One of the reasons people fear going to a dentist is
anticipating the sharp pinch of a needle or the vibration of the
drill. You will be happy to know that there is an amazing
advancement in dentistry called air abrasion. It takes the place
of conventional drilling with a stream of minute particles and
air that mist away the decay. Most patients do not even need
anesthesia. This means no more drilling and no more shots!
We never take even the slightest risk when it comes to safety
and cleanliness in the tools we use during treatments. Some of
these tools have only a one-time use and are discarded.
Instruments that need to be sterilized are placed in an
autoclave that is monitored by an independent lab to ensure high
standards are maintained.
No More Cavities – Ever! Is this even possible? It is
Cavities are a result of a bacterial infection referred to as
“caries.” In our practice, we use the CariFree™ program. It was
designed to help patients become free of cavities by evaluating
their risks for disease. We diagnose any presence of bacterial
infections that can cause cavities. We treat the infection with
specific preventive techniques.
It is our goal to prevent cavities, and the CariFree program
accomplishes just that! We give you a “caries risk assessment”
that identifies any present factors that could cause decay. We
give you instructions and products to take home and use that
will significantly reduce the chance of cavities.
