PRGF occur naturally in your blood and can help you recover more quickly and smoothly after surgery. We withdraw a small sample of your blood, spin it in a centrifuge to isolate the PRGF layer of blood, then introduce a concentrated form of it into the surgical site during bone grafting and other procedures.
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) produces high-resolution 3D images of your mouth while exposing you to a tiny dose of radiation compared to traditional CT machines. These images help us plan for optimal dental implant placement.
This compact, wand-like camera enables us to take high-quality, close-up images of the interior of your mouth, which not only allows us to provide highly precise, effective treatment for a number of conditions, it also allows you to see and better understand your own dental health issues.
Digital x-rays give us a full picture of what’s going on beneath your teeth and gums. With this technology we can take high-definition x-rays that show us everything we need to see almost instantly while giving you a fraction of the radiation exposure of conventional x-rays.
This laser technology eliminates the need for a scalpel and sutures and minimizes pain during gum disease treatment. This dental laser both performs the function of a scalpel and instantly destroys bacteria while leaving adjacent healthy tissue untouched.
