Digital X-rays Mean No Waiting
We use only digital X-rays that produce 75% less radiation than conventional X-rays and require no time for the image to be developed. By simply placing a digital sensor in your mouth, we can immediately have a picture of your teeth on our computer screen. With this quick and easy process, no chemicals harmful to the environment are used.
A Miniature Video Camera That Lets You See for Yourself
With the use of a high-tech, miniature video camera, you can clearly see what teeth need work and those that are in good condition. The intra-oral camera lets you be part of the team to be able to discuss dental problems and treatment plans with your doctor. Patients appreciate taking part in their dental decisions, as they can understand the work that needs to be done to maintain oral health.
Avoid Injury to Your Teeth and Gums
Many people have lost teeth due to trauma and injury to the mouth while playing sports. This can be avoided with proper protection. A custom-made mouthguard will give adequate defense to protect teeth and will also allow sufficient breathing during exertion. The mouthguards obtained in stores are not designed for your specific shape of dental arches. They do not fit well and give little protection from trauma to your mouth. The American Dental Association recommends wearing custom mouthguards for the following sports: Acrobatics, basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, handball, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, shotputting, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer, squash, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weightlifting, wrestling.
Treatment for Headaches without Pain Medication
If you suffer from migraine and tension headaches and have only obtained relief through prescription drugs, you will be very pleased to learn of an alternative. The NTI™ device is an oral appliance that relaxes the muscles in the scalp that cause most headaches. The NTI device has been proven to be effective in clinical trials and also in patient use. Most headache occurrences have been prevented or easily relieved by inserting this appliance. It is an affordable alternative to taking pain medication for relief. Let us help you have a better quality of life with this exciting new treatment.
Cleanliness of Dental Instruments
We want you to know that every re-usable instrument is sterilized after each use. We place these instruments in an autoclave, which is a special unit monitored by an outside lab. This ensures the highest standards of cleanliness are met. You can be assured we never take any risks with your health.
