In our office we now offer digital x-rays, the safest form of x-ray technology. This new technology reduces your exposure to radiation by 90-95% compared to traditional dental x-rays. The images from digital x-rays can be viewed in less than one minute on a computer monitor for viewing by both the doctor and the patient.
Velscope: A flouroscope is used to look for superficial changes in the tissues of the mouth, as part of our oral cancer screening. The velscope has now given us the advantage of fluorescence to look for tissue changes that are below the surface. This technology gives us the opportunity to detect tissue changes at a much earlier stage. Early detection is key to the treatment and prevention of oral cancer.
Diagnodent: This device is a diagnostic laser designed to discover small, hidden cavities not yet detectable on x-rays. Your teeth will be able to be restored with minimally invasive techniques.
