Our In-House Modern Technology
Our laser technology empowers us to deliver fast, extremely precise results with less pain and little bleeding. Using the power of light, we can trim excess gum tissue away from your teeth to create a better tooth-to-gum ratio, turning your “gummy smile” into a beautifully balanced one. No scalpels or sutures are needed, making this process both minimally invasive and perfect for our patients who suffer from dental anxiety.
Cone Beam Scanner (CBCT)
CBCT is specialized x-ray equipment that we use when basic x-rays aren’t sufficient. This low-radiation technology allows our dental team to obtain 3D images that include not only your teeth, but also bone, nerve pathways, and soft tissues. With these images we’re fully prepared for dental implant placement and many other types of procedures. Imaging takes just seconds and is completely non-invasive.
Advanced Healing Techniques
Plasma-rich growth factors (PrGF) exist in your blood and can help healing after procedures go smoother and more quickly. We take a small sample of blood from you and spin it in a centrifuge. This separates the elements of your blood, enabling us to isolate and harvest the growth factors from it. We then place them into your treatment sites in a concentrated form after procedures such as bone grafting. The PrGF create a protective layer over the treatment areas, much like a scab forms on top of a wound to support healing.
An intraoral scanner is a small, handheld device that we use to obtain high-resolution images of your mouth. It allows us to make highly detailed, 3D digital impressions of your teeth for crowns and other treatments without using sticky putty. Further, it enables us to show you what we’re seeing inside your mouth so that you can have a better understanding of your treatment.
