KaVo NOMAD PRO 2

Introducing digital imaging, available at our practice. With this technology, an image is taken of your mouth with a digital sensor and downloaded into our computer, where it is immediately available. This method results in 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays. No more waiting for images to develop and no more chemical waste to pollute the environment.

CEREC MACHINE

Welcome to dentistry in the 21st century! We are pleased to offer crowns made with CEREC™, a highly precise computer milling machine that makes crowns right in the office, in about an hour. No more temporaries, additional visits, or crowns that don’t seem to fit right. Just because CEREC crowns are convenient and aesthetically desirable doesn’t mean you have to give up function. These modern restorations dramatically reduce cracking, lowering the likelihood of needing future root canal treatment. Due to the custom design and precise fit, CEREC restorations are bonded to the tooth with the optimum strength available. We are pleased to be among one of the first in our community to offer crowns with the CEREC machine. If you have ever had a crown placed the traditional way, we are sure you will notice the difference!

The good news is that there’s a 90% cure rate if it’s detected early. We are very pleased to provide one of the most effective oral cancer screenings available today. VELscope™ is the newest FDA-approved oral cancer screening system. We perform the exam using the specially designed light. Any suspicious tissue is immediately and easily visible. This screening could literally save your life!

THE PERIO PROTECT METHOD

Perio Protect is doctor-prescribed and patient-applied. When you receive your custom Perio Trays®, our team will show you how to place a small amount of prescription medicine in each tray. You wear it for just minutes each day. Your dentist will also design a treatment plan specifically for you, as the duration and frequency varies for each patient.

The trays are designed with a patented seal to place and hold medication where it is most effective—at the site of infection deep below the gum line. A low concentration of hydrogen peroxide gently and thoroughly cleanses the periodontal pockets, combating bacteria, whitening your teeth and freshening your breath.

For some patients, the non-invasive Perio Trays reduce the need for surgical intervention. For others, it can be a potent compliment to traditional treatment methods, helping to ensure a more successful outcome.

While there is no “cure” for gum disease, it can be managed with daily treatment to prevent pathogenic bacteria from recolonizing. When the desired results have been achieved, your dentist will revise your treatment plan to maintain the results.

The Perio Protect Method is an appealing, minimally invasive option for advanced periodontists and early-stage gum disease alike.

NTI DEVICE

NTI is a dental appliance for the treatment of migraine pain and associated tension headaches. By reducing muscle contraction intensity during parafunctional activity, the NTI-tss Plus minimizes tooth wear, reduces joint strain and disc load and decreases muscle tension leading to fewer migraines and morning headaches.

The Invisalign™ system is easily removable so you can not only eat and drink what you want while in treatment, brushing and flossing are no problem! Join the quarter million patients who have already discovered the joy of straightened teeth – invisibly!

FASTBRACES

FASTBRACES® is comprehensive orthodontics, just like traditional braces and not short-term cosmetic orthodontics. It is an alternative to conventional treatments and utilizes doctor-prescribed treatment plans to address “bad bites” or malocclusions, such as overbites, underbites, crowding/crooked teeth, spacing/gaps, open bite and crossbites.
