The Risks and Realities
of Oral Cancer

One American dies every hour from oral cancer, and the mortality rate has remained virtually unchanged for 40 years. Early detection is so important, because it means a 90% cure rate. To help us ensure your complete oral health, we are pleased to provide highly effective oral cancer screenings using the newest FDA-approved oral cancer screening system, VELscope™. This tool uses a specially designed light that makes any suspicious tissue immediately and easily visible during your exam. This screening could literally save your life!

The Isolite™ Dental
Isolation System

This multi-function unit’s most important feature is suction that removes droplets and aerosols from the air during treatment. Additionally, its flexible mouthpiece provides an increased level of dental isolation and includes a light for improved illumination of the inside of your mouth. For comfort, there is a built-in bite block to assist you in keeping your mouth open. Isolite was designed to make your treatment quicker and easier, not only eliminating multiple hand instruments previously used by dentists and dental assistants but also shortening your time in the chair and in our office.

No-More-Fat-Lips-or-Numbness

No More “Fat Lips” or
Numbness After Treatment!

When a patient leaves the dental chair after routine care, they are often “numb” for 3 to 5 hours. It’s hard to talk or eat and the face and lips feel “fat.” What if that didn’t have to happen anymore? We are very pleased to offer our patients OraVerse™. What this amazing product does is reverse the anesthetic after your treatment is finished. It takes about fifteen minutes to get a patient back to normal. So if the thought of being numb for hours after your treatment makes you uncomfortable – we can take care of that for you!

Protect Your Teeth
During Sports

Did you know that 5 million teeth are knocked out each year in the United States alone? Many sports can be dangerous without the proper protection. The one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in stores just don’t fit very well. Custom-made sports mouthguards fit well, protect well, and can be worn for any sport.

Technology:
Digital X-Rays

Traditional dental X-rays have been “good enough,” but digital X-rays provide clearer and much more accurate pictures of what’s going on inside a patient’s mouth. This makes it easier for our doctors to diagnose issues. Leaks or breaks in fillings that used to go unnoticed, often leading to root canals, can now be found and treated before major damage is done.

Technology:
Intra-Oral Camera

Our doctors work hand-in-hand with patients to create a bond of teamwork. This amazing device is a miniature video camera that displays a closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision. You’ll love how this works!
