Oral Conscious Sedation

Whether you wish to complete a longer treatment all in one go or if you would just like a little help relaxing in the dental chair, oral conscious sedation can help. To achieve this method of sedation, we will prescribe a medication for you to take about an hour before you come in for your appointment. Its effects will have taken over by the time you are settling into the chair — and you’ll be ready to relax, removed from any worry about what’s going on around you.

Intraoral Cameras

An intraoral camera is a tool we use to show you what is going on inside your mouth using a screen right at chairside. It is a handheld device that captures crystal-clear images and projects them directly onto the screen. From there, we can better explain any existing issues and why we are recommending a particular treatment plan because well-informed patients are always the happiest and most successful!

Digital X-Rays

A crucial part of preventive dentistry involves x-ray technology. It’s recommended that patients have these in-depth images captured once annually. These days, digital x-rays offer a better method compared to the conventional one. Unlike traditional x-rays, which must be developed using chemicals and special equipment, the digital version is ready almost instantly — and they also expose you and your loved ones to less radiation in the process.

Soft-Tissue Laser

Our soft-tissue laser allows us to perform periodontal procedures, like gum disease treatment and the removal of excess gum tissue, with the utmost precision. Unlike traditional soft tissue procedures, which require a scalpel and sutures, the soft-tissue laser minimizes bleeding and actually speeds healing since it sanitizes as it works.
