+Digital X-rays for 75% Reduction in Radiation

With digital radiography, an image is taken of your mouth with a sensor and downloaded to our computer, where we can immediately access it. We can also take a look at your entire mouth in one image, including both the upper and lower jaws, using panoramic digital X-rays. These technologies result in 75% less radiation than traditional X-rays. There is also no more waiting for images to develop and no chemical waste polluting the environment.

+The Intra-Oral Camera Lets You See What We See

Dr. Patel works closely with her patients to create a bond of teamwork. One way she brings this about is with a high-tech tool called the intra-oral camera. This wonderful device is a tiny video camera that captures a closeup photo of the inside of your mouth. You’ll then be able to see for yourself any work that needs to be done and which teeth are doing well. This is how you participate in each dental decision. You’ll love this technology!

+State-of-the-Art Instrument Sterilization

Sterilization is an issue we take very seriously. We clean and sterilize all instruments after every use, and single-use tools are employed as necessary. Instruments are sterilized with a special machine called an autoclave. The autoclave is regularly monitored by an independent lab to make sure the highest level of safety and cleanliness are maintained. Your health is too important for us to take even a slight risk.

+Getting Your Smile Wonderfully Clean

Our practice uses a Piezo Scaler™ to aid in removing plaque and calculus (tartar) from your teeth, especially beneath the gum line and even deep pockets, for gum disease treatments. This hand tool makes use of high-frequency vibrations to allow the removal of deposits on your teeth faster than regular scaling instruments. You’ll think your teeth have never felt this clean! As an added bonus, most patients report more comfort with the Piezo Scaler.
