Digital Impression technology allows us to create highly detailed digital models of your teeth and surrounding tissue. For the patient this means not having to sit through the traditional tray & impression material process that many find uncomfortable. The digital model can then be used to create Ceramic Crowns while you wait or to create an orthodontic treatment plan utilizing Invisalign.
CEREC Same Day Crown & Bridge means not having to wait the traditional 1-2 weeks for a permanent crown or bridge. Using digital impressions and an in-office mill we are able to create permanent, aesthetic crowns during a single visit. Typically the appointment is less than 2 hours from start to finish and when you leave there's no fear of a temporary falling off.
Paperless Charting insures that your dental records are accurate and up-to-date at all times. With all charting and X-rays recorded digitally; every staff member has access to current information which insures a higher quality of care. This also allows us to quickly and precisely share information with specialists or other providers that are aiding in your care. Doctors also have remote access which enables them to treat emergency patients 24/7.
Digital X-Rays not only provide a much more detailed view of your teeth than traditional X-Rays but also subject patients to over 90% less radiation. The speed and ease of taking digital X-Rays also allows the Doctors to quickly spot and diagnose any areas of concern.
Intraoral Cameras allow us to show you a live picture of area of concern within your mouth. This simplifies education as well as streamlines insurance acceptance.
Automated Appointment Reminders via email and text make it easy to confirm your appointment, giving our staff more time to focus on your care.
Electronic Claims & Pre-Authorizations allow us to submit dental visits quickly and accurately to most insurance companies. This also drastically reduces turn-around time from insurance providers on pre-authorizations meaning faster decisions by both patients and Doctors.
Electronic Prescriptions end the possibility of losing paper prescriptions or having to wait for the pharmacist to fill the script. ePrescriptions are sent directly to your pharmacy and ensure quick and accurate delivery.
