Trios Digital Scanner

For a long time, traditional dental impressions were the only option available for creating custom restorations and appliances. This process involved a putty-like material being pressed against upper and lower arches for several minutes while it hardened. Needless to say, it wasn’t a pleasant experience. That’s why Dr. Gray uses a Trios digital scanner. The small device, which easily and comfortably fits in the mouth, scans and creates a 3D image. In addition to being much more enjoyable for patients, this technology also results in better-fitting, better-looking restorations because it measures so precisely and accurately.

Intraoral Camera

Our team uses smile images captured by the intraoral camera to help patients fully understand concerns with their oral health and possible treatment options. The camera itself is about the size of a pen. We can insert the camera into patients’ mouths and take photos of current restorations, damaged areas, discoloration, and more. Dr. Gray examines the images with the patients, discussing possible treatment options, answering questions, and making recommendations to help the patient improve at-home care.

Digital X-rays

X-rays give us the ability to see those parts of the teeth and bone that are not immediately visible. Traditional X-rays were time consuming to capture, process, and transfer, and the images they produced weren’t always very clear. Digital X-rays offer us higher definition images of the underlying smile structures more quickly and comfortably using less radiation. Best of all, digital X-rays reduce overall treatment time as we can instantly transfer the information to dental labs, specialist’s offices, and insurance providers.

Soft Tissue Laser

We use two different soft tissue lasers to recontour tissues and treat gum disease non-surgically. 810 nm lasers allow us to remove damaged tissue with less discomfort. We use our 970 nm laser during periodontal therapy to decontaminate the treatment site, reducing the risk for reinfection. Patients who receive treatment with a soft tissue laser typically make a complete recovery within just a few days.
