        RESTORATIONS: CEREC

        CEREC is a high-tech device used to design and manufacture ceramic tooth restorations at the dental practice while the patient is in the chair. The CEREC equipment comprises a digital infrared camera for obtaining an optical impression of the damaged tooth, 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to help the dentist design the ideal restoration for the clinical situation, and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technology that uses two highspeed diamond burs to mill a precise restoration according to the CAD software specifications. The milling process is completed in less than 10 minutes and the entire restorative procedure is completed in a single appointment. The best part is no more temporaries or gooey impressions!

        SCHICK DIGITAL X-RAYS

        Digital xrays provide higher quality images, quicker processing, and up to 96% less radiation than traditional xrays. This makes them much safer and quicker for our patients and more accurate to detect decay. The digital xrays use an electronic sensor that captures and stores the digital image on our computers.  Through the computer, we can enlarge images for better diagnosing and quickly refer back to previous x-rays to monitor changes in the teeth.

      • DENTALVIBE INJECTION COMFORT SYSTEM

        Relax, Our shots are pain-free. Suppose the dentist gave you a shot and you didn’t feel it. No pinch. No pain. No discomfort. That’s what happens with DentalVibe. DentalVibe is an amazing device that uses vibration to block the sensation of pain. And it does so without pills, gas, or anything that may produce woozy side-effects. It’s the best thing that’s happened for people who hate dental shots. But that’s not all. Even if dental shots don’t bother you, DentalVibe’s vibration helps the anesthetic dissipate quicker and evenly. Which makes the entire procedure that much better. Why deal with fear, stress and discomfort when you don’t have to. Our practice uses DentalVibe. So here, pain is a thing of the past.
