Our team offers digital cavity detection with DIAGNOdent. This unique tool uses laser light to help us detect decay, damage, and other issues in the tooth structure.
The deep grooves on the chewing surfaces of our molars are the most common areas to get cavities. In most people, the grooves are so deep and narrow that it is impossible to clean them. Over the years, bacteria can get into the grooves and grow undisturbed. The bacteria give off acids as their waste products. This acid slowly dissolves the tooth, causing a cavity.
For such a cavity to be detected by eye or x-ray, it has to have grown to a minimum size. Now there is a new tool to catch these cavities in their beginning stages so they can be eliminated before they cause much damage.
Everything absorbs and reflects light differently. The DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Detector shines a laser light into the tooth, and the unit is calibrated to interpret the wavelengths of light reflected. It will buzz when a cavity is detected and gives a numerical readout, so the approximate size of the cavity can be estimated.
If such cavities are detected when they are still small enough, another new technology, known as Air Abrasion, can clean them out without any shots or drilling.
The device is a compact diode laser used to identify areas of tooth decay that traditional means, including x-rays, miss.
DIAGNOdent shines a laser beam down into the tooth, to a depth of 2.5 mm.
The device is aimed into the grooves of teeth, providing a decay reading to the dentist.
Using the innovative CAD/CAM system, our team can create high-quality ceramic crowns, inlays, onlays, bridges, and other restorations in just one day. You will be able to enjoy a beautiful new dental restoration in one simple visit.

The Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner has transformed the way we look at our health and has created a business opportunity unique in the world.
It's a revolutionary tool developed by Pharmanex to measure the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin-and prove the effectiveness of your supplements in improving your overall antioxidant health.
Place the palm of your hand in front of the Scanner's safe, low-energy blue light laser, and you will obtain an immediate reading of the carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin-your Skin Carotenoid Score.
By measuring the stable level of carotenoid antioxidants in your skin and generating your Skin Carotenoid Score, the Scanner provides a more accurate and reliable biomarker of your overall antioxidant health status than other methods of measuring antioxidants. Getting your Skin Carotenoid Score makes you aware of the antioxidant levels in your body and gives you the push you need to optimize your overall antioxidant health.
Get your Skin Carotenoid Score measured with the Scanner, take LifePak® or JVi for 90 days, and get your Score measured again. You will have proof that these Pharmanex® supplements can increase your carotenoids level.
Below are examples of the Graphic Imaging Technology that allows the patient to view their future smiles! This software produces the model which is used to create their custom veneers. As illustrated from the photo, the patients' teeth are digitally reshaped, balanced, and contoured, producing the desired appearance.
