Our office employs many types of new technology. These technologies benefit the patient by offering improved diagnosis and care.
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, 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 it is better for you and the environment!
Orthophos XG® is a 2 dimensional xray used to help the dentist visualize both jaws in one film. Using a special tool that the patient bites down on, images are taken as the machine rotates around the patient’s head. The films are then viewed either digitally on the computer or on traditional Xray Film.
The Isolite™ System is a special mouth guard that our office uses to provide our patients maximum comfort during treatment. Isolite™ significantly reduces the risk of injury to the patient by providing superior protection for the patient’s tongue and cheek, while also supplying the dentist with adjustable lighting and easily controlled suction.

Accutron® Nitrous Oxide Delivery System
Accutron® is a unique delivery system for Nitrous Oxide, or Laughing Gas, which is a safe sedation agent used to help children relax during dental procedures. The laughing gas is delivered through a comfortable mask that fits over the nose. The masks are available in a variety of colors and scents that are appealing to children. It’s small size allows it to stay out of the way of the clinician during treatment, and does not overwhelm an already anxious patient.
Testing for pH
In our office, we provide patients with specialized tests to identify the pH levels in the saliva in their mouths. These tests are used to encourage better dental health for each patient. By measuring the acidity or alkalinity of saliva, determining the pH can be an indicator of good oral health, or an indicator of need for improvement. A balanced pH level will help maintain strong and healthy teeth and gums.
