Cone Beam technology provides a digital tomographic 3D view of the patient’s area of interest.  A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional.  With Cone Beam systems the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas.  The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago.
Drs. Lieblich, Fletcher, and Gill are on the forefront of the latest surgical technology. Using the most modern 3-D imaging techniques in conjunction with biomedical engineers, our doctors are able to plan complex orthognathic, reconstructive, and trauma procedures. Surgical guides and implants can be custom fabricated, specific to each patient, in advance of their scheduled surgery. Through Virtual Surgical Planning (VSP), patients can expect increased precision, more predictable surgical outcomes, and more efficient surgery.
Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays.  The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment.  Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film.  Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care.  It’s also a very green technology.  By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste it is better for you and the environment!
Using Electronic Medical Records our practice is able to quickly and accurately access patient information in order to provide the utmost in patient care.  This helps to ensure patient confidentiality as well as reduce the need for paper.  Using a digital format allows for quick access to your information when needed for insurance records yet provides a secure filing system.
Soft tissue lasers are used for numerous procedures in and around the oral cavity. We often use lasers for performing labial and lingual frenectomies, biopsies, and removal of precancerous lesions. These lasers are more efficient, cause less discomfort, promote a faster healing time, and decreased risk of infection, providing a better outcome.
A Piezo Electric Unit may be used in place of a drill for cutting and removal of bone. These handpieces are gently and meticulously used to provide precise removal of bone.
These computer monitors are found next to every patient chair. Patients will be able to view their dental x-rays when speaking to the doctor. The doctors will review their findings with you for a better understanding of your oral health.
Our office offers free Wi-Fi for our patients use while visiting our office.
