Cone Beam technology provides a digital tomographic 3D view of the patient’s area of interest. A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional. With Cone Beam systems the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas. The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago.
Using CBCT scans and restorative virtual treatment planning, along with specialized training, our doctors are able to provide computer guided surgery for our patients.

Using a virtual 3-D model or a physical model, implant placements and other restorative work can be simulated to create the ideal patient treatment plan. These virtual plans allow the doctor to take multiple aspects of implant placement and restoration into consideration, resulting in optimal aesthetics, function and longevity for the patient’s final restoration. Working with a 3-D model also allows patients to better understand the planned procedures and visualize the end result. Computer Guided Surgery increases the accuracy, efficiency and safety and predictability of any procedure.

nSequence® allows both the restorative doctor and the surgeon to work together to develop the ideal plan for each patient, including the number, size and positioning of implants, which results in optimal aesthetics, function and longevity for the patient’s final restoration. Working with a 3-D model also allows patients to better understand the planned procedures and visualize the end result. The prosthesis will be fabricated prior to the surgery so there is no need for temporary restorations , which reduces both the surgical steps and the follow up appointments for the patient. Computer Guided Surgery increases the accuracy, efficiency and safety and predictability of any procedure.
Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays.  The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment.  Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film.  Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care.  It’s also a very green technology.  By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste it is better for you and the environment!
Using Electronic Medical Records our practice is able to quickly and accurately access patient information in order to provide the utmost in patient care.  This helps to ensure patient confidentiality as well as reduce the need for paper.  Using a digital format allows for quick access to your information when needed for insurance records yet provides a secure filing system.
An intraoral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and dentist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time.  With an intraoral camera, you are able to better understand what is happening in your mouth and review the status of your oral health.
Our office offers free Wi-Fi for our patients use while visiting our office.
