SNORING, SLEEP DYSFUNCTION & SLEEP APNEA: Patients and spouses of patient that snore and have sleep problems are carefully evaluated with specialized computer devices.  We can provide a portable device that you wear while you sleep in your own bed at night.  We then analyze the data, along with a sleep physician, to determine if you have a problem, and the level of severity.  Patients with mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and any patient that cannot wear a CPAP, or choses not to try one, can be helped with a custom made oral appliance that positions your jaw in a position to open your airway.  We determine this position scientifically uses painless sonic mapping of your airway and gently moving your jaw until we find the position and opens your airway ideally.  Oral appliances are a recommended option by the Academy of Sleep Medicine, and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

VELSCOPE: The most advanced way to detect cancers and abnormal tissue.  We use this cancer screening instrument which allows us to see unusual patterns in unhealthy tissue by exciting the natual fluoresence in our bodies.  Studies have shown that it finds problems earlier, before the tissues have a chance to become cancerous.

CEREC: Lets us make beautiful crowns for you in one visit. Our in-office computer system helps us design and customize the most accurate, best fitting, and esthetic way to get a crown.

T-SCAN: Computer aided diagnosis and treatment of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems and facial pain.  This helps us analyze the exact timing and amount of force of your bite.  Removing errors in your bite often greatly improves patient comfort and function.
