Digital Imaging Smile Preview
Have you ever wondered what you would look like with a dazzling new smile? Now you can see the results before we begin a single treatment. Digital Smile Imaging lets you preview the effect various treatments will have on your own smile. We can even print these images out so you can take them home to show to your family and friends or take some time to consider your options.
Digital X-rays and 3D CBCT
Digital x-rays allow us to get clearer, full-color images of your teeth. These images allow you to see for yourself exactly what is going on in your mouth right along with the doctor.
We can take the full spectrum of x-rays including bitewing full-mouth series, panograph and perform a 3d CBCT scan for the most accurate diagnosis. This machine also has tools to measure and evaluate the airway & jaw joint. These images can be kept in your computer files for future reference and easily compared year to year.
Digital x-rays also have the advantage of exposing you to far less radiation than traditional x-rays and, since they require no developing equipment or chemicals, they are better for the environment.
Micro Air Abrasion, drill-less dentistry
Because we want your experience with us to be beautifully painless, we now have one of the latest advancements for your comfort – Air Abrasion.
This wonderful technology is like a small “power-washer” on your teeth. By utilizing dried microscopic particles under pressure, it literally can “spray” away decay from your tooth, possibly without any anesthetic (numbing) or drilling.

The Wand is a computer activated, precision metered, local anesthetic injection system.
One of the most recent – and dramatic – improvements in dental technology is laser dentistry. The laser is used in all aspects of dentistry: preventive care, restorative care and cosmetic enhancements, and healing tissues, muscles, & TMJ/TMD.
We have 7 different kinds of lasers
- 2 different Lasers that stimulate healing. Their effects are usually instant for reducing pain, bruising, soreness & inflammation and healing properties continue to work long after the treatment
- 2 Lasers for surgeries
- 2 Lasers for gum inflammation often used for periodontal disease or could be used for gingivitis.
- 2 Lasers for cavity laser detection like a Sonar or LiDAR technology
The use of lasers in dentistry allows us to care for your teeth and gums, quickly, effectively and painlessly. With laser dentistry sculpt your gums for a wider, brighter smile, treat periodontal disease and even whiten your teeth. Lasers heal as they work, allowing you to feel better – and look better – fast.
Up close and personal. That’s what the Intra-Oral camera lets you and Dr. Frith get with the condition of your mouth. We use a pen-sized camera to explore every detail of your mouth while projecting amazingly detailed, enlarged images on a chair side screen. This lets us look at and discuss your oral health needs in real time.
We have TVs in the rooms for displaying X-rays, intra-oral images and in the treatment rooms cable TV channels.
