3D Cone Beam Scanner

The cone beam 3C CT scanner allows us to view detailed images of your entire mouth at different angles. It shows relationships between bones, teeth, airways, nerves and tissues. Our doctors use this technology when planning for dental implants.

diode laser

Diode Laser

Laser dentistry makes dental procedures more comfortable for the patient. The laser makes procedures go faster, reduces the amount of bleeding, causes less swelling, speeds up healing times, and does not cause any lasting discomfort after the procedure is completed.

digital x-rays

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays use 80% less radiation than conventional film X-rays. They also produce images much faster, and allow our doctors to examine fine details such as early forming cavities. Digital X-rays can be displayed on a computer monitor in seconds, allowing our doctors to quickly show patients any problematic areas.

panoramic X-rays

Panoramic X-rays

Panoramic X-rays capture a detailed panoramic view of your mouth, teeth, upper and lower jaws, sinuses, gums and surrounding tissues. Our doctors use these X-rays to diagnose and plan dental treatments for braces, dentures, extractions and implants.

Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System

Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System

By using Anutra, we are able to provide virtually painless anesthesia delivery, making injections very comfortable for our patients.

CEREC one visit dentistry

CEREC One-Visit Dentistry

Our doctors use the leading-edge CEREC system to fabricate crowns, onlays and inlays in a single visit. Your restoration is designed using 3D imaging software, and then milled out of a single block of porcelain for strength and durability. This technology allows us to provide you with a high-quality restoration in a just one visit.

DNA Bacterial Testing

Primescan is the most advanced intraoral digital scanner on the market. It provides a level of accuracy never before seen in dentistry. The advanced technology allows us to scan steep angles, hard-to-access areas and shiny materials. At the peak of innovation, it is widening the gap between those with and without digital dentistry.

ultrasonic scaler

Ultrasonic Scaler

Ultrasonic scalers painlessly remove harmful bacteria, hardened plaque and tartar from below the gum line. An important tool in the prevention and treatment of gum disease, the ultrasonic scaler is able to get deep into gum pockets, effectively removing tartar and bacteria with small, quick vibrations and water flow.

K7 ESG Electrosonograph

K7 ESG Electrosonograph

When conducting an exam for jaw joint disorders, Dr. Grimshaw uses a computerized evaluation system that analyzes and measures the function of your jaw joints. It tracks the position of your jaw at rest and in motion, as well as interpreting jaw clicking sounds and muscle activity.

TENS

TENS Electrical Stimulation

We use a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) unit to alleviate tension and pain in the muscles of the jaw. Electrodes are strategically placed around the head and a low-level current gently stimulates nerve pathways and produces a massaging sensation.

vizlite

VizLite® Oral Cancer Screening

Although oral cancer is rare, we like to ensure your oral health by screening with an amazing new technology called VizLite. We screen for oral cancer during each routine examination. The diagnostic process is quick and painless and it detects, identifies and marks any tissue abnormalities.

electric handpieces

Electric Handpieces

Our doctors use electric handpieces to make routine dental procedures a quieter and more relaxing experience. In comparison to traditional drills, electric handpieces are faster and more efficient, which results in shortened procedure times.

Zoom Teeth Whitening

We use Zoom professional, in-house whitening to safely and effectively brighten your smile up to eight shades in under an hour. We also offer Zoom customized trays that you can use the whiten your smile in the comfort of your home.

Intraoral Camera

Intraoral cameras are used to show patients a detailed view of the inside of their mouth. These small, handheld cameras send digital images to a computer screen for fast and convenient viewing. Our doctors will regularly use the intraoral camera during an oral exam to help identify any problem areas. It can also be a helpful tool for treatment planning and patient education.

digital photography

Digital Photography

We take digital photographs of your smile to use as a reference when planning cosmetic procedures or full-mouth reconstructions. These images help us evaluate your facial structure and dimensions at various angles so that we can determine the best method for rejuvenating your smile.

DNA Bacterial Testing

When treating stubborn gum disease, we often use a simple DNA test to determine the exact strain of bacteria present in your mouth. This provides us with the information necessary to prescribe an antibiotic that will combat the bacteria most effectively. DNA testing is also useful when patients are resistant to certain antibiotics.
