Advanced Tools for Modern Dental Care

Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:

Digital X-rays

Our advanced digital X-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.

With digital X-rays, we can view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide us with the information we need to plan your dental treatment.

Digital X-rays require much less radiation than traditional film X-rays. Digital X-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.

Panoramic X-Ray

A Panoramic X-ray machine rotates around your entire head to take a 360-degree view of your teeth, sinuses, and the bone structure of your head and jaws. This provides a more complete image than standard X-rays. Panoramic X-ray imagery is a valuable resource for Dr. Ashley Keen-Ramirez to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.

Cavitron

The Cavitron is a handheld device used in periodontal deep cleaning. While scaling can be completed by hand, the Cavitron uses ultrasonic technology to remove calculus from teeth and gums quickly, gently, and effectively.

With the Cavitron, patients enjoy a more comfortable experience, and time spent scaling and polishing is decreased.

Cone Beam Imaging

Cone Beam imaging is an advanced form of digital radiograph. With the cone beam imager, one simple scan will produce a 3D image of your entire maxillofacial structure. This image can then be used in diagnostics, patient education, treatment planning, and treatment follow-up.

The cone beam provides an effective solution to create quick, clear, precise images for your benefit. Additionally, the cone beam uses minimal radiation in scanning and is a much less invasive process than other forms of imaging. This makes the cone beam an excellent choice for patients with dental anxiety or a sensitive gag reflex.

By utilizing advanced technologies like the cone beam, we can provide an effective, efficient, and comfortable patient experience for you on every visit.

iTero ® 3-D Scanner

When it comes to your orthodontic care, the iTero Digital Impression Scanner offers a solution that is both more efficient and reliable than traditional methods.

Part of many orthodontic treatments is the process of taking impressions of your mouth. These impressions help our team better visualize the structure of your teeth and jaws to customize a treatment plan for you. Through the use of the iTero Digital Impression Scanner, our team eliminates the need for messy and uncomfortable impression materials while producing more efficient and accurate results.

Using a radiation-free laser, this compact device scans your mouth to create a digital, three-dimensional impression of your teeth and gums within minutes. Not only are these impressions much more time effective, but they also are much more accurate and allow patients to remain comfortable throughout the procedure. Combined with our years of experience, this technology allows our team to help deliver the best possible outcome for your orthodontic care.
