Lasers help sterilize the treatment site, provide
the maximum amount of control, minimize bleeding,
and are virtually painless during the procedure
Diode lasers can be used to treat canker and
cold sores reducing the pain and speeding
up the healing of these conditions.
Same Day Crowns, Veneers and Fillings
We recently incorporated the E4D Dentist
system into the treatment options available toour patients.
As a result, Dr. Loar
can take a digital scan of his patient's tooth and design
and create a custom, permanent restoration in the dental
office, all in a single appointment.

Computer Digital Radiography (CDR)
x-rays can now be taken using sensors that transmit
the image directly into a computer monitor. This larger
image helps the patient understand the doctor's explanations
more easily and enables the doctor to "zoom in"
on a specific area of the tooth. An important advantage
to this new technology is that it reduces the amount
of radiation by 90%. Digital x-rays are also faster.
The digital image only takes a minute or two to appear
in the monitor. In addition, this new technology is
friendly to the environment since no chemicals are needed
for developing the image.
technology in veneer fabrication allows us to perform
dazzling transformations with minimal surface preparation.
white fillings have been around for a long time, the
new materials can now be used in a wider range of applications
allowing you to keep your smile as white as it can be!
An advanced air polishing cleaning technology
which uses air/water/sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)
to gently remove stains and dental plaque while at the
same time polishing the teeth.
Dental Imaging Software
imaging software allows us to simulate cosmetic and
other procedures so you can see the effect on your smile
before we start! We take digital pictures of your teeth
and then use a sophisticated computer simulation program
to create the projected "after" images.
OralCDx represents a breakthrough in oral
cancer detection, a test that will allow you and your
dentist to improve the prognosis of a disease that has
remained unchanged for the last 50 years.
OralCDx is the first computerized brush
biopsy system. It allows dentists to quickly, painlessly
and reliably detect oral cancer in its earliest, most
easily treatable stage.
Originally developed as part of the Star
Wars missile defense program, the OralCDx computer
system includes a neural network-based image processing
system specifically adapted to detect abnormalities
unique to oral brush biopsy samples.
The DIAGNOdent is a new high tech laser
system that aids in early diagnosis of cavities in the
complex anatomy of the chewing surfaces of teeth. It
utilizes laser light of a defined wavelength to help
detect and quantify demineralized tooth substances without
Abrasion is a gentle spray of an air and powder
that gently sprays away tooth decay. There is no heat,
vibration or sound, like there is from a drill. The
procedure is relatively painless, therefore not always
requiring an injection. Air abrasion is a very precise
technology and usually removes less tooth structure
for a filling than a drill would.
You can choose in-office power whitening
for immediate results, or you can choose at-home whitening.
For In-Office whitening, we utilize the advanced LumaLite
Our intraoral camera uses a tiny fiber-optic wand to
easily take vivid photographs of the inside of your
mouth. This allows us to let you see what the Doctor
sees magnified up to 28X.
Automated Charting Software
This system connects a computer database to a special
probe so we can quickly, easily, and accurately record
individual measurements when performing a periodontal
Our treatment areas and our waiting room are equipped
with state-of-the-art patient-education DVD systems.
If you are uncertain about a particular procedure, we
will be happy to play the DVD video segment for you.
