Radiation Free Diagnosis
For Oral Cancer Screening, we use Identafi, an oral mucosal Visual Enhancement System that enhances the visualization of oral mucosa abnormalities that may not be apparent or visible to the naked eye, such as oral cancer or pre-malignant dysplasia. The Identafi excites the tissue with multi-spectral lights for direct visualization of the resulting natural tissue fluorescence, reflectance and vasculature.
The IntraOral Camera – Digi Doc is the industry’s leading high definition camera that brings the smallest details into brilliant full screen focus which is used for patient educational. Our team is aware that patients want to be shown, not told what needs to be done.
Intraoral Camera – Cari Vu (trans illumination) uses a newer approach called near infrared (NIR) transillumination to detect occlusal and interproximal carious lesions in their earliest form. Additionally, the CariVu can identify cracks. NIR transillumination uses longer wavelengths, allowing for deeper penetration into the tooth. Oral health professionals can halt or reverse the caries disease process by detecting caries in its earliest form, thereby avoiding surgical intervention and preserving the natural dentition. New caries diagnostic technology aids in the support of minimally invasive dentistry by helping clinicians differentiate noncavitated areas from cavitated ones, and allows remineralization efforts to be employed.

Cosmetic dentistry primarily focuses on the improvement dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. It generally refers to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/or bite.
Restorative dentistry focuses on methods of replacement of missing or damaged teeth. Fillings, crowns (“caps”), bridges and implants are common restorative options. The goal is to bring back your natural smile and prevent future oral health issues.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available — complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows the replacement teeth or a bridge into that area.
Implants are also used to anchor dentures.
Orthodontics with Clear Aligners (INVISALGN)
Invisalign aligners are practically invisible, feel smooth and comfortable, and can easily fit within your lifestyle. It is wonderful for an active and public lifestyle because it is removable. The teeth can be easily and thoroughly cleaned after meals.
Straight Teeth are Healthier Teeth!
Preventive dentistry is oral care that involves education, treatment and practice of maintaining your teeth and gums. Taking care of your teeth means more than brushing and flossing. For complete care, it’s important to visit a dentist every six months for a regular checkup and professional cleaning.
Oral health is connected to the health of your body as a whole. This is because the mouth is a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Maintaining a clean mouth benefits your overall health.
