Our office uses modern, state-of-the-art
technology to enhance patient comfort and to help you get

Computer Digital Radiography (CDR)
can now be taken using phosphorous plates that transmit
the image directly into our computer. This permanently
stores the image in your file and allows comparisons of
past x-rays with current ones. The doctor, then, can see
the progression of dental changes over time. The large
computer image from the digital x-rays helps the doctor
see greater detail and enables the doctor to zoom in on
a specific area of the tooth. An important advantage to
this new technology is that it reduces the amount of radiation
by 90%. Digital x-rays are also faster. The digital image
only takes a minute or two to appear on the monitor. In
addition, this new technology is friendly to the environment
since no chemicals are needed for developing the image.
VELscope Vx - State of the Art Oral Cancer Detection Technology
Our office is excited to introduce the latest in oral cancer detection technology. Oral cancer are aggressive growths that can invade the tongue, roof of the mouth, gums and cheek. In the United States, an estimated 36,450 new cases of cancer of the oral cavity are diagnosed annually. Risk factors that increase the incidence of oral cancer include alcohol, tobacco, human papilloma virus (HPV).
Our office uses a device called the VELscope Vx which provides enhanced vision when it comes to detecting abnormal tissue areas that might not be visible to the naked eye, including oral cancer and premaligmant dysplasias (pre-cancerous lesions) and FDA approved.
