We are constantly striving to give our patients the finest dental care possible, and our investment in advanced technology is also a long-term investment in your oral health. We understand that using updated technology leads to more informed decision-making, allowing our patients to make the best possible decisions about their oral health.
Our practice features the latest state-of-the-art technology, including:
SimPlant® Implant Placement Software
SimPlant allows our office to take a 3D scan of the jaw bone, arteries, veins, nerves, and the maxillary sinus. We then use these 3D scans to identify the best position to place a dental implant. Traditional digital x-rays are able to show only a limited amount of information.

Leukocyte Platelet Derived Fibrin (LPDF)
Leukocyte-platelet derived fibrin (LPRF) is a byproduct of your blood. After a small sample of your blood has been processed, the platelet-rich clots are collected and used to expedite your healing process.

Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)
Platelet Derived Growh Factor is not donated bone material, but is a fully synthetic bone regeneration product that has been developed for the treatment of dental trauma and defects, including the treatment of gingival recession.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
The use of platelet rich plasma (PRP), is an innovative advancement in dentistry. We take a small amount of the patient's blood and with it create a platelet concentration; this will promote healing through increased tissue regeneration.

Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP2)
Our body naturally creates the protein known as Bone Morphogenetic Protein, it is the protein that our body sends when the bone matter has been damaged. By using our natural resource, we no longer need other bone grafting materials reducing the incidence of rejection.

3D Cone Beam
3D Cone Beam radiology creates full digital x-rays of the entire oral cavity. This means that we can view the positioning of the teeth, while also viewing impacted teeth and the level of bone density available.

The dentist's drill does not evoke positive feelings in patients. This is often due to the sound and pressure that is applied. With the electric handpiece, these concerns can be laid to rest, as the electric handpiece is quieter with less jarring movements because it does not react to resistance.
