Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the Team

The doctor works hand-in-hand with patients to create a bond of teamwork. One of the ways he brings this about is through the use of a high-tech tool, the intra-oral camera. This amazing device is a miniature video camera that displays a closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision. You’ll love how this works!

75% Reduction in Radiation

Introducing digital imaging, available at our practice. With this technology, an X-ray is taken of your mouth with a digital sensor and downloaded into our computer, where it is immediately available. We can also view your entire mouth in one shot, including the upper and lower jaws, with panoramic digital images. These methods result in 75% less radiation than conventional X-rays. No more waiting for images to develop and no more chemical waste to pollute the environment.

Defeat Gum Disease Painlessly

The main cause for tooth loss is not decay – it’s periodontal (gum) disease! We are pleased to offer our patients a powerful weapon in the fight against gum disease. It's called ARESTIN™. It comes in powder form and contains very tiny microspheres that are not visible to the eye. These microspheres deliver a time-released antibiotic directly to the site of the infection (the spaces between the gums and teeth). ARESTIN kills the bacteria that cause gum disease. The best part is that it’s all painless!
