Our Technology

DEXIS DIGITAL X-RAY SYSTEM

With the newest technology Platinum sensor! At 2.2 Megapixels, the sensor replaces regular film and allows for digital enhancement of X-rays. More comfortable, much faster, much clearer and up to 70 percent less radiation exposure!


INVISALIGN TECHNOLOGY

Removable, comfortable and virtually invisible! This is the easiest way to align your teeth without braces. Our INVISALIGN treatment includes a complete examination, X-rays, diagnostic models, clinical before-and-after photos and finishing retainers. Keep a watch out for our Invisalign specials for we often include FREE BLEACHING to help whiten your teeth during the alignment!


INTRAORAL DIGITAL CAMERAS

If you want to see it, we can show you! Every one of our operatories is equipped with intraoral digital photography systems, designed to take sharp images of anything and everything in your mouth. We use this technology to show you teeth, gums, lesions, etc. in your mouth and can use it to visually track oral findings over the course of time. We also can use these photographs for dental insurance claims to assist our patients in gaining insurance coverage for problems that are not normally seen in x-rays!


LED CURING LIGHT TECHNOLOGY

These curing lights are designed to emit light in a narrow visible-light spectrum, minimizing excess light and heat. The lights are used to polymerize/harden tooth-colored fillings in as little as 10 seconds. They are rechargeable, energy efficient, quieter and faster than traditional halogen-bulb curing lights.


ULTRASONIC CLEANING TECHNOLOGY

Use of this ultrasonic irrigating device allows for more comfortable deeper cleaning below the gums. Removal of stain, plaque and tartar is quicker and less painful.


HIGH-STRENGTH ZIRCONIA

Use of this ceramic material allows for replacement of metal crowns with no dark graying at the gumline. With strengths equal to metal, this material can be used for back teeth and bridges to create a natural, beautiful smile.


COMPUTERIZED CHARTING AND MONITORING

We use the most up-to-date practice software to allow us to chart every individual tooth in your mouth, keep track of your progress, track of your recall and submit any treatment you receive to your insurance electronically. We take out all the guesswork and hassle, so you don’t have to worry!


WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

For our medical waste disposal and management, DRNA (Dental Recycling of North America) provides our office regular service of medical waste, sharps, and amalgam waste, including continuous separation of amalgam contaminants from outgoing waste water. Our ISO-Certified Amalgam seperator was installed back in 2011, years before such devices were mandated by the state of Michigan.


Isolite

The unique Isolite evacuation system not only provides cheek and tongue retraction and a focused light on our working field, it greatly reduces aerosols from our handpieces and ultrasonic scalers. This allows us to do faster, safer dentistry in a well-lit field and minimize water spray, keeping clinicians, patients and our rooms safer!


iTERO Element 2

This revolutionary 3-D digital scanner allows us to take impressions without the messy goup! Highly accurate and fast, we can turn around cases in days rather than weeks. See your own teeth in 3-D without x-rays or photos or impressions. See a simulation of your smile design from start to finish!


Austin Air Allergy Machine Air Purification

In our waiting room, checkout area and sterilization area, we have added Austin Air Allergy Machines that filter the air of allergens and particles as small as 0.1 microns (average COVID-19 virus particle size is 0.12 microns) at 95% efficiency. This machine utilizes HEGA carbon cloth and HEPA filters to clean the air, with research demonstrating the HEGA filter is highly effective at capturing and destroying airborne viruses.
