Investing in the Science of Dentistry

Dentistry today has come a long way from the way it was when we opened our doors in 1968, and a big part of that is because of the incredible advances that have been made in digital technology. We have made it a point to invest in these advances so that we can deliver the best possible experience when it comes to diagnosis, treatment delivery, and patient comfort.

For instance, in our practice you will find:

  • 3D Panoramic Imaging
  • 3D CBCT Imaging
  • CEREC Omnicam
  • Deka Laser
  • Digital Photography

3D Panoramic Imaging

That’s right—the days of the bitewing x-ray are all but over. In most cases now we can take a simple, comprehensive, panoramic image of your whole mouth to give us the big picture—without any of that uncomfortable “bite-and-hold” business.

3D CBCT Imaging

CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography, and it is another way we use comprehensive scanning—in this case to produce 3D images to give us precise specifications when performing implant procedures.

CEREC Omnicam

We are proud to say that we were the first practice in Las Vegas to adopt what is now recognized as a breakthrough technology in modern dentistry. No more messy impressions, no more temporaries, no more coming back to have a lab-created restoration seated. With CEREC it is all done on the spot. A digital impression is made, and a perfect-fitting ceramic restoration is milled and seated, all in one appointment.

Deka Laser

When you think “laser” you think precision, and that is what this technology is all about. It’s a “magic wand” that enables us to put away the scalpel and remove small lesions and excess tissue with pinpoint accuracy in a minimally invasive way, preserving as much healthy tissue as possible.

Digital Photography

Seeing is believing. That’s why we believe digital photography is a great resource in a contemporary dental practice—for giving you an up-close look at what we see when making a diagnosis, for documenting progress, and best of all, for capturing your new smile to complete the “before and after” set.
