Complimentary 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

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 always take the full spectrum of x-rays including bitewing and full-mouth series and perform a CT scan for the most accurate diagnosis. 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, painless anesthetics

Many of our patients are afraid of needles and cringe at the very idea of a shot. In fact, studies show that over 50 percent of patients fear anesthetic syringes. That’s why, when our patients need anesthetics for procedures, we offer them The Wand. The Wand is a computer activated, precision metered, local anesthetic injection system that lets us consistently administer virtually painless injections.
Not only are our own patients amazed at how much easier it is to get numb with The Wand, it has been extensively tested by over 300 dentists on over 5,000 patients across the country.

Laser Dentistry

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. Replacing the drill in many cases, lasers greatly improve your comfort, reduce anxiety and enhance preventive care.

The use of lasers in dentistry allows us to care for your teeth and gums, quickly, effectively and painlessly. With laser dentistry we can prepare your teeth for restoration without drilling; 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.

Intra-Oral Cameras

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.
