75% Reduction in Radiation
With digital X-rays, there is no waiting time for the image to develop. It is cutting-edge technology that reduces radiation emissions by 75% when compared to old non-digital X-rays. With panoramic imaging, a digital sensor is inserted in your mouth and in a single display, both upper and lower dental plates and your jaws are captured on screen and ready for viewing. To top it off, no chemicals are required, so this style of x-ray is friendly to the environment.

What is Xylitol and How Is It Related to Reducing Cavities?
Twenty-five years of clinical testing have shown that xylitol is the healthiest choice available for a sweetener – both for your teeth and your overall good health. Dental associations in seven European countries have already endorsed its use in a variety of food and dental hygiene products. Typical sugars and starches generate an acid in your mouth that promotes decay. Xylitol is a natural substance extracted from certain fruits and vegetables that does not produce this decay-accelerating acid. It is so natural our bodies actually produce 5 to 10 grams each day. Research has also indicated it is beneficial to people who suffer from allergies. We recommend the use of products containing xylitol for fewer cavities and better respiratory health!
The Laser Scanner Finds Miniscule Cavities Years Earlier
Have you ever had a dentist reveal a new cavity and place a large-scale filling, leaving you curious as to why the filling is so extensive if the cavity wasn’t there on your last visit only six months before? The truth is it actually existed during your previous visit, but wasn’t yet detectable on X-rays or with a visual inspection. Our doctors are excited to use a laser scanner to identify cavities in their earliest stages, at a time when they can be repaired with only a tiny, invisible filling. You won’t ever leave our office wondering if the start of a cavity has been missed. We can discover cavities and take care of them before they become bigger problems.

Avoid the Knockout – with Custom Mouthguards
Annually, across the United States about five million teeth are knocked out as a result of traumatic mouth injuries. The truth is that many common sports activities are extremely hazardous to both teeth and jaws without a proper mouthguard in place. And let’s face it, the one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in stores don’t always fit right. A sloppy fit may prevent the intended protection and can actually interfere with proper breathing during exertion. On the other hand, a custom-made sports mouthguard fits appropriately, protects well, and can be utilized for any sport. The American Dental Association recommends the use of a custom-made mouthguard for use with most sports activities ranging from acrobatics to wrestling. In most cases, a custom mouthguard offers the most protection available for your money. Don’t wait – protect your mouth today!
Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the Team
Our doctors value the bond of teamwork they develop with their patients because they believe it improves their ability to provide the very best in dental care. One of the ways they work hand-in-hand with our patients is through the use of the intra-oral camera. This miniature video camera provides a close-up picture of your teeth and displays the image on a screen. When you can see for yourself why certain teeth need work, you can better participate in each treatment decision.
