General DentistryAIRFLOW / PERIOFLOW
This is a modern approach in cleaning based on the sub- and supragingival biofilm removal using air-polishing technology with airflow plus powder. This air polisher uses pressurized air, a special powder and water to remove plaque biofilm and stains. Air flow polishing is the ideal way to remove the stains and discoloration caused by smoking or by drinking red wine, tea and coffee as it whitens teeth while thoroughly removing dental plaque.

Complete dentures are removable full-coverage oral prosthetic devices that replace a complete arch of missing teeth. The appliance, when made correctly, can restore ideal length between the nose and chin and plump up facial tissues that would normally be supported by natural teeth. The transformation that occurs to a person’s lips, cheeks, profile, and of course smile can be dramatic, creating a more youthful and healthy appearance. Dentures can be made of gum colored acrylic with acrylic or porcelain teeth.
Digital X-RaysDIGITAL DENTAL X-RAYS
Instead of developing X-ray film in a dark room, the X-rays are sent directly to a computer and can be viewed on screen, stored, or printed out. These X-rays (radiographs) are images of your teeth used to evaluate your oral health. These X-rays are used with low levels of radiation to capture images of the interior of your teeth and gums. This can help in identifying problems, like cavities and impacted teeth.
