Digital Intraoral Cameras 

An intraoral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and dentist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time.  With an intraoral camera, patients are able to better understand what is happening and review the status of their oral health.

Oral Cancer Screening 

Oral cancer affects thousands of Americans yearly.  We use the latest technology to detect changes in oral tissue consistencies and/or lesions.  The doctor shines a UV light into the mouth to detect unhealthy tissue. Healthy tissue looks lighter under the light while spots of bad tissue appear dark. With early detection, cancer may be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives.
