Our Advanced Dental Technology
We view technology as a tool—it helps us run our practice more efficiently, and it allows us to visualize, analyze, and treat things we couldn't previously see. Using digital radiography reveals nearly everything we need to know about the inside structures of your teeth and gums, and provides us with a nearly immediate image. We also use an intraoral camera that 'tours' your mouth, showing both you and our team every little nook and cranny of tooth structure, including the earliest stages of fractures, cracks, chips, and other problems.
Our soft tissue laser provides us with the ability to offer a better patient experience, from greater comfort during procedures to better healing times after treatment is completed. For our patients' optimal health and safety, we provide distilled water with an antibacterial solution instead of using water from the tap.
Just ask us for more information about our 'tech investments' when you come in for a visit!

At New Image Dentistry, we are proud to offer a new form of technology that is safer and more accurate for both our patients and our dentists – digital x-rays. Unlike traditional x-ray machines that emitted unhealthy levels of radiation, digital x-ray machines emit up to 80% less radiation, making it a much safer alternative. Plus, there are no darkrooms or harsh chemicals for developing. Within seconds, clearer images of your oral structure will appear, allowing both you and our dentists to see what is going on above and below your gum line.

Soft Tissue Laser
Laser dentistry is making life much easier for dental professionals and patients alike. When treatment requires altering or removing part of a patient’s gum tissue, the soft tissue laser makes it possible to perform a quick and virtually painless procedure. As the laser moves across the soft tissue, it cauterizes at the same time, reducing the amount of bleeding and, thus, reducing recovery times for patients. There are no scalpels or sutures necessary when using a soft tissue laser.
Digital Impressions with iTero
One of the most effective advanced dental technologies we utilize is the iTero digital impression and restoration design system. Traditionally, physical impressions were taken of prepared teeth. These impressions were then sent to our lab where a restorative solution was crafted. iTero allows our team to capture precise impressions of patients’ teeth digitally. We can then design the necessary restoration using the iTero system allowing our trusted dental lab to provide the highest quality restorations possible.
