Diagnodent Laser

The Diagnodent Laser Cavity Detector is a wonderful tool for diagnosing stages of dental decay. This laser scans the teeth with a harmless light, using different wavelengths to find hidden decay. This allowing us to treat the tooth in the earliest stages of decay, heading off future dental problems. It is completely safe and pain-free.

The device looks like an ordinary pen as it glides over the tooth surface, providing instant feedback on any abnormalities it finds. A number scale and an alarm signal the operator when there are signs of hidden decay.

Soft Tissue Laser

We use this soft tissue laser to sterilize, clean, and desensitize the area being operated upon, which promotes swift healing and reduces the likelihood that additional post-surgery procedures will be needed.

This laser can also treat periodontal (gum) disease and eliminate the need for gum surgery. It can also help sterilize root canals, aid in teeth whitening, and easily cure canker sores since it gives immediate pain relief and causes the ulcer to heal in 24-72 hours.

Digital X-Rays

X-rays are the most important tool a dentist can use because they provide a complete, detailed picture of your teeth, allowing us to see what the human eye cannot. Overexposure to radiation is a thing of the past with modern X-rays, which use the smallest possible dose of energy to capture an image.

Dental X-rays are very important because they can expose hidden tooth decay, cavities, fractures, and impacted or extra teeth, as well as cysts, tumors, or abscesses. They can also help determine the condition of crowns, bridges, fillings, and root canals.

We are proud to be a completely digital practice. With digital radiography, we can instantly identify dental issues such as gum problems and tooth decay, and expose the patient to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays.

Intra-Oral Camera

Did you ever wonder what the dentist sees when they’re examining your mouth? With our intra-oral camera, you can see what Dr. Martirosyan sees while she works. This tiny camera fits into the mouth and takes digital pictures of the back teeth and gums, revealing any decay, cavities, gum disease, or other dental problems that might be present.

Air Abrasion

Air abrasion is a method for removing tooth decay. This instrument works by blowing a fine stream of dry air mixed with particles of aluminum oxide, silica, or a baking soda mixture onto the teeth. The particles of decay are sprayed off the tooth and then suctioned away.

Air abrasion is also used to prepare the teeth for cosmetic surgery, repair old fillings and sealants, and restore broken crowns and bridges. The device is completely silent, virtually painless, and produces no heat or vibration.
