Intra oral photography
We use a small pen like intra oral camera to document disease of the oral environment.

  • Shortens the duration of the root canal treatment
  • Uses Nickel-Titanium files for improved results and safety

Nano Technology

Modern restorative dentistry revolves around the ability to bond materials to teeth and therefore the quality of bonding is of paramount importance.

This technology utilizes nano particles in the materials used for general bonding and the actual white filling itself. A nano particle is very, very ,very small!

Advantages

  • Improved bonding strength
  • Thin film thickness of bonding agent so that crowns, inlays and veneers will fit better
  • Gives superior properties to the white filling material
  • Reduction or complete elimination of sensitivities post op
Bleaching/Teeth whitening
There are three basic methods of bleaching available
  1. In dental office bleaching (using chemical or light activation)
