Quality Treatment Using the Latest Technology

Our office doesn’t just contain the latest technology in the dental world to look flashy. The instruments we use offer unparalleled benefits when it comes to planning complex treatments, diagnosing hidden oral problems, and ensuring that your smile stays in optimal health. Below, you can learn about some of the instruments that you can find in our treatment rooms that help us provide you with top-notch dentistry.

Digital X-Rays

Compared to its film predecessor, digital X-ray systems are faster, clearer, and safer. They allow us to snap a photo of your mouth within seconds, providing Dr. Roman with a high-resolution image to examine nearly immediately. We capture digital X-rays at each checkup and cleaning you have to help us examine the area of the mouth that isn’t visible to the naked eye, below the gumline. With this technology’s help, we can easily diagnose serious oral problems like cysts, tumors, or tooth infections.

Intraoral Camera

Intraoral cameras are extremely helpful when it comes to providing thorough routine checkups. They’re small, handheld wands with cameras attached to the end of them that we can easily maneuver around the mouth to gain a detailed, up-close image of hard-to-see nooks and crannies. In addition to capturing still images, it can also display life video footage on a large chairside monitor, allowing you to follow along with our examination in case you have any questions or concerns.

Digital Impression System

Our Trios 3Shape digital impression system replaces the old, outdated putty impression method. All we need to do to create a perfectly-fitted, custom restoration is scan your mouth using this piece of technology. It will create a digital blueprint of your teeth that we can then send off to our dental laboratory to make a crown, bridge, denture, or mouthguard.

Soft Tissue Laser

The soft tissue laser is a neat device that helps minimize the need for scalpels and sutures during treatments like gum disease therapy. It emits a concentrated beam of light that’s able to kill harmful oral bacteria and remove excessively damaged gum tissue to help stop your condition from advancing. The best part is, the laser immediately cauterizes the area on-contact, minimizing bleeding and shortening recovery times.
