Interactive Patient Education System (Guru): An interactive patient education system isn't as complicated as it sounds. This type of dental technology allows you to watch a video to learn about your proposed treatment. The system usually comes in a DVD format and will be shown on a TV or computer monitor in our office. We set up viewing in the reception area also, where you can learn about the types of dental services offered in our dental office. More specific content related to your dental care is chosen by our dentists and can be viewed chairside. All you need to do is sit back, relax, watch and learn!
Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
Digital Camera We use a high powered digital camera to help communicate your dental goals and esthetics to the outside dental community so we can help you achieve the best smile possible.
VITA EasyShade The key to great crown and bridges is to make them look like your own teeth by matching the color. Everyone visualizes color in a different way. The conventional way of taking a tooth shade (color) is by visually trying to match it to a standard tooth shade guide such as the Vita Classic shade guide. Lighting conditions and the operators judgment causes a lot of errors. At our dental office we believe in getting it right the first time by trying to match the shade to your existing teeth by using the vita easyshade system technology and the vita 3-D master shade guide. All of this at no cost to you!
The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to just a few years ago. The camera gives us the ability to view the entire mouth on a monitor so that we can get a closer look at any potential issues or problems that may arise. In addition, the patient will have the ability to see for themselves first hand the same images we are seeing. These digital images are also excellent for gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.

This tool often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to perform the process with greater ease.
