Our digital X-rays emit less radiation, take images faster without any need for processing, and allow us to optimize the images so we can provide a more precise diagnosis.

Cavity Detection

The DIAGNOdent is a pen-like device that uses laser fluorescence to help us see cavities in your teeth. There is no x-ray exposure and allows for a more detailed look at the health of your teeth. The DIAGNOdent is an excellent tool to find early signs of lesions on the teeth. The earlier they are detected, the sooner we can remove the decay. When cavities are small we can save more of the natural tooth, keeping your smile healthy and strong.

Intraoral Camera

We use our intraoral camera to get a closer look at your oral health while also helping to bring you into your own diagnosis and treatment plan. The images from the camera can be projected onto a screen for you to get a dentist’s view of any signs or issues we see.
