Technology

Better Image Dentistry is at the leading edge of dental technology. We use the latest equipment and diagnostic tools to treat our patients in the most comfortable, effective way possible. We also offer a full range of easy-to-read patient education materials to help you understand the treatments and procedures we recommend for your dental health.

We offer many of the most advanced dental technology systems available, including:

  • DIAGNOdent – this compact device provides a painless, non-invasive method of detecting even the smallest areas of tooth decay – before they’re visible to the naked eye or X-rays!
     
  • Air Abrasion – a comfortable alternative to the drill which allows your dentist to quickly and quietly prepare your tooth for a filling.
     
  • CompuDent Anesthetic Delivery System – This innovative, computerized local anesthetic delivery system allows for virtually painless injections. Most patients wonder how the dentist got them numb without the old needle, and they never knew he used one!
     
  • Digital Radiography – just as digital cameras have improved on film photography, the latest generation of digital radiography technology provides many benefits over traditional X-rays, including the ability to magnify, rotate, store and share high-quality digital images of your teeth. And all this with less than half the radiation! 
     
  • Digital Dental Photography (Intraoral Photography) – our high-resolution digital cameras assist in diagnosis, documentation, and patient education.
     
  • CEREC CAD/CAM – this system allows us to quickly and economically complete a restoration of damaged teeth using computer-aided design and manufacturing technology – all in a single visit. Crowns and Onlays can now be done in just one visit!
     
  • VELscope Oral Cancer Detection System – using a safe blue light, we can detect oral cancer that might not be apparent to the naked eye, allowing for more accurate diagnosis and proactive treatment at an early stage.
     
  • Digital Imaging of “After Smile” – find out what your smile will look like after cosmetic dentistry.

Our professional staff will communicate with you every step of the way to clearly explain your treatment options and the dental technology available, our recommendations, and what you will experience during your dental procedures. Our goal is simple: to help you achieve and maintain a beautiful, healthy smile.
