Digital X-Rays

Our digital X-rays emit less radiation, take images faster without any need for processing, and allow us to optimize the images so we can provide a more precise diagnosis.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is an advanced imaging technique that uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam to create a highly detailed 3D image of the mouth. By rotating the cone beam around the head, this imaging technique can help us accurately design a treatment plan.

Digital Intraoral Camera

This handheld camera provides us with an innovative way to examine your mouth in greater detail. By using this diagnostic tool, we can zoom in closely on specific teeth and capture a high-quality image of them. The images are then displayed on a screen for both you and our dentist to review, providing a better understanding of your diagnosis and treatment.

3D Printing

3D Printers allow for the manufacture of many kinds of dental apparatuses from dentures to whitening trays and implants in-office. This allows for faster turn-around time and greater precision compared to traditional outsourcing.

iTero Digital Scanner

The iTero Digital Scanner is used to create digital dental impressions through a much less invasive process than traditional dental impressions—which require mold trays and messy impression material (alginate) to sit in your mouth.
