Other Services We Provide
Digital Imaging (x-rays):
The enhanced diagnostic value of digital imaging reduces your radiation exposure up to 90%. Eliminating chemicals and films with digital imaging helps save the environment.
FL Probe System:
The FL Probe System is a computerized periodontal probing station. The System’s constant-force, computerized probe allows measurements to be consistent between examiners who likely probe with different amounts of force (which could mean different readings for the same patient). Our probe’s precision is 0.2 mm., which also improves the accuracy of measurements and assists the us in determining the correct diagnosis and follow-up for our patients.
NTI Device (bite guard):
The NTI device is helpful in the prevention of wear due to grinding and/or clenching your teeth. Often times a patient presents without symptoms, but has an obvious need for dental protection from nocturnal bruxism (grinding). The NTI device can fulfill that need. Also, it is an effective non-drug method of preventing some jaw & headache pain.
Our office offers an at-home teeth whitening system. The whitening trays are custom made to fit each patient perfectly and ensure that they are comfortable during the whitening process. The whitening gel is properly dispersed over the teeth for optimum whitening results.
Velscope Vx Oral Cancer Screening:
The Velscope Vx provides the most powerful technology available for assisting in the discovery of oral mucosal abnormalities. Velscope Vx plays a key role in the early discovery of such abnormalities, which can be critically important in the fight against oral cancer.
Dental sealants are very effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your teeth. Sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Easy to apply, sealants take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. Sealants hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
Children and adults can benefit from sealants in the fight against tooth decay.
An Intra Oral Camera is approximately the size of a pencil and is indispensable in viewing those hard-to-get-to areas of the mouth. Like our digital images, intra oral photos are integrated into computer software. Images appear immediately and can be enlarged so both the dentist and the patient can see conditions more clearly. These photos can be retrieved, printed, or emailed to distant consultants helping us to perform the best dentistry possible for our patients.
