We also offer nitrous oxide sedation for those who experience fear and anxiety, helping make visits more comfortable. We welcome you to read more about the technology we use below.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide is a fast-acting method of sedation dentistry that is administered in-office. We’ll place a small nose mask on you that will allow you to breathe in a colorless, odorless gas. Within moments, you will notice a calming wave wash over you that helps you relax in the treatment chair. Our team will be monitoring your vitals and adjusting the sedation as necessary throughout your appointment. Once your cleaning or procedure is complete, we will have you breathe in oxygen to help flush the sedation from your system, allowing you to quickly get back to your daily life.

Digital Dental Impressions

If you’ve never had to go to the dentist and have an impression, it usually involves placing a gag-inducing glob of putty into your mouth. It’s incredibly uncomfortable and not always accurate. To improve this experience as well as ensure that your restorations or other oral appliances fit perfectly, we utilize our advanced digital dental impression system.

All that’s involved is waving a wand around your mouth. The sensor at the tip of the wand will build a 3D map of your mouth that we can then transfer to our in-house milling machine or dental laboratory to create your appliance or prosthetic.

Soft Tissue Laser

Today, more dentists are incorporating soft tissue lasers into their practices because of how effective and safe they are, making treatments like gum disease therapy and gum recontouring much more comfortable for patients. The laser itself is able to seamlessly remove severely damaged soft tissue as well as kill harmful oral bacteria and cauterize the surgical site on-contact, helping fight the threat of oral infections and drastically reducing recovery times.

Intraoral Camera

In addition to having a sharp eye for detail, our dentists also use intraoral cameras to gain up-close views of hard-to-see areas of the mouth. Shaped like a thick pen with a camera on the end of it, we can move it around the mouth to snap still images and show you live video footage of areas of concern. This piece of technology is an excellent way to educate you about lingering oral health issues as well as explain how our recommended treatment plans can address them.
