Sterilization · Digital X-Rays
At our office, we work very hard to provide you, our valued patient, with the best care and treatment that modern dentistry has to offer. We utilize state-of-the-art procedures, instruments and techniques. Your health is our top priority!
Sterilization and Protective Procedures
Our advanced sterilization procedures meet or exceed the Centers for Disease Control guidelines. We heat-sterilize all hand pieces and instruments after each use. We only use ADA approved disinfectants. We use gloves, masks, eye protection and barrier covers at all times.
We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images. These images require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film type x-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film that must be developed and then fixed in caustic and environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor and instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room. Therefore, we can see your teeth and surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact us for more details, or to make an appointment!
Health Gums Lead to a Healthy Body
Continued research has linked gum disease to diabetes, heart disease and low birth weight in babies. In an effort to rid your teeth of the plaque and tartar that causes gum disease (gingivitis) and tooth decay, your dental care hygienist may suggest a regime of care that requires more frequent visits.
