s-smile.jpgWe are constantly striving to provide our patients with the finest dental care available. Our investment in advanced technology means a long-term investment in your future, because state-of-the-art technology invites informed decision-making and enables patients to make wise choices concerning their oral health. Drs. Michelle M. Lee and Richard W. Reddy both offer the latest dental technology for your benefit:

Intraoral Camera: This camera allows us to quickly and easily photograph the inside of your mouth. The photographic image can be projected onto a color monitor. Because this magnification allows you to see your mouth more clearly, you are better able to participate in your treatment.

Panorex: Panorex film provides Drs. Lee and Reddy with a panoramic X-ray view of the oral cavity and provides information at a glance about existing fillings, supporting bone, sources of infection, tumors, cysts and decay. Panorex film shows more of the mouth and surrounding structures, but with less detail of individual teeth than small films.

High-Tech Curing Lights: Unlike most medical lasers that cut or vaporize tissue, new systems have been specifically designed for curing dental composites. Composites are tooth-colored filling materials sometimes used in place of amalgam (silver) fillings. Composites are hard, durable materials that bond well to teeth and can be shaded to match the natural tooth color. Until recently, it could take several minutes to completely cure (or harden) a filling using a conventional curing light. With laser, plasma arc and LED technologies, a stronger and more durable filling is created in less time. Our patients find these to be comfortable treatment options for composite restorations, tooth bonding, ceramic inlays and veneers.

Computers: Our computer system is designed to efficiently manage the most complex information in the dental industry. Our system handles treatment and payment options. We make sure our computer system takes care of the technicalities so that you are provided with the most up-to-date information available.

DIAGNOdent: This electronic diagnostic tool can detect cavities earlier in a more conservative manner.

CAESY: The Clinically Advanced Education System is a wonderful dental education program. Patients can view the latest dental techniques in a step-by-step format through use of this interactive system.
