Advanced Dental Technology

We utilize the latest technology in all areas of our practice, whether it's improving our diagnostic capabilities or making treatments faster and more effective for our patients. With all of the recent advancements in the dental field, we believe it's our responsibility to our patients to stay up-to-date on treatments and technologies that can help us provide the most exceptional dental care possible.

Digital X-rays

X-ray

Digital X-rays emit significantly less radiation than conventional X-rays, and they’re also faster and more comfortable. Because they don’t require any lengthy chemical processing, the images are available on our computer screen within seconds.

Many problems with the teeth and surrounding tissues cannot be seen by the naked eye. X-rays are needed to reveal:

  • Deep Cavities and Decay Between Teeth
  • Decay Below Existing Restorations
  • Infections in the Jaw Bones
  • Abscesses, Cysts, and Some Tumors
  • Developmental Abnormalities

Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage can save you unnecessary discomfort, money, and time. In cases where X-rays help us detect oral cancer and periodontal disease, they can even help save your life!

Panoramic X-rays

Panoramic X-rays help us visualize your entire mouth rather than isolating selected areas. This comprehensive view is especially helpful in complex full-mouth restorations like dental implants.

Intraoral Cameras

Like dental X-rays, digital photographs taken with our intraoral cameras are a useful diagnostic and patient education tool. These cameras show you what we see during your exam and help us guide you through your diagnosis and treatment options. They also enable Dr. Sherman to diagnose issues he might not have been able to see without the up-close view.

Soft Tissue Laser

Dental lasers are extremely precise and can help shorten the duration of almost any general dental procedure. Because they eliminate the need for scalpels and sutures, lasers also help minimize pain and speed the healing process, especially in the soft tissues.

We use our minimally-invasive laser in a variety of applications, from deep cleanings and gum surgery to cosmetic gum reshaping. Laser therapy can even help reduce tooth sensitivity and assist in the healing of canker sores, cold sores, and mouth ulcers.
