DIAGNOdent

The DIAGNOdent is a new high tech laser system that aids in early diagnosis of cavities in the complex anatomy of the chewing surfaces of teeth. It utilizes laser light of a defined wavelength to help detect and quantify demineralized tooth substances without x-ray exposure.


Ultrasonic Cleaning

. The cavitron is an ultrasonic scaler. Power scalers do a more thorough job in less time. This results in significantly decreased scaling time and healthier, cleaner teeth and gums. Hand scalers require repetitive scraping movements and are restricted to adaptation of only one or two sides of the instrument. In comparison, all four sides of a power scaler can be adapted, because the device moves in an elliptical motion. This comes in handy when removing stain and deposits from behind and between the teeth. Ultrasonic scalers are more effective in removing stain as well. The ultrasonic vibration helps control oral bacteria by breaking down the cell wall of the bacteria. The water used to cool the cavitron then helps to rinse away bacteria, stain and debris

Prophy Jet

3M ESPE Mini Implants

Is your loose denture causing you to miss out on life's simple pleasures? Do you miss eating your favorite foods? Are you afraid to laugh or smile? If so it is time to enhance your life with the Mini Denture Implant (MDI) system by 3M ESPE.

The MDI system consists of a miniature titanium alloy implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket with a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture firmly in place. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces.

Come and visit us in the morning to have the mini implants placed, and be able to eat dinner that evening comfortably with this scientific breakthrough in denture stabilization. All of this is available at an extremely affordable price and interest free financing is available for those who qualify.

KoR Whitening
(Deep Bleaching System)

If you are searching for a beautiful, healthy, and natural looking white smile, KoR Whitening is the answer. This safe and comfortable process offers low to no sensitivity and the results are permanent, with easy periodic home maintenance. There is no need to give up coffee, tea, or red wine. The system is ideal no matter what your age.

Kor Whitening is by far the most reliable and effective whitening system ever developed. In fact, it is so effective it is the only recognized whitening system that whitens even tetracycline-stained teeth in a short time (previously thought to be impossible).

The KoR Whitening System works by restoring your teeth's ability to absorb oxygen. The oxygen from its whitening gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving the stain molecules. Teeth are often dramatically lightened, often 16 shades or more.

Molds of your teeth will be made to fabricate your own unique, ultra comfortable whitening trays. You and your dentist will select which level of whitening is the proper fit for you. You will normally wear your trays at home for two weeks while you sleep. Depending on your selection, you may also have one or two simple whitening visits in the office.


Crest White Strips

Professional grade strips are stronger that those found at stores. Strips are applied directly to the teeth at home at you convenience. It is recommended that you wear the strips twice daily for 30 minutes for 21 consecutive days. This is also the least expensive option.


We make custom trays to fit your teeth and we use Day White® whitening gel. Just place a little Day White® whitening gel in your trays, wear them for approximately 30 minutes twice a day for a brighter smile!
