Patient InformationAdvanced Technology
We focus on using the most current techniques and state-of-the-art dental equipment. In order to do this, we take a great deal of continuing education. Some of our advanced equipment includes:
CerecCEREC Dental Restorations
Traditionally, restorations such as crowns are created in an off-site lab. As a result, patients must wear a temporary crown and return for a final fitting when the permanent crown has been completed.
Our office is equipped with Cerec, a system which uses Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacture technology to create beautiful, strong, perfectly fitted restorations.
This technology allows us to custom create Veneers, Crowns, Inlays and Onlays right in our office. This reduces your treatment time for these procedures to just one visit!
The WandFeatured on Fox News: The Wand
In the past, injections of dental anesthesia by others may have been uncomfortable. We recognize this and take extra care when preparing a patient for anesthetic. We use a topical anesthetic on your gums first to desensitize them and then use The Wand, a computer driven system, to administer the injection very slowly and precisely to create a truly comfortable experience.
DiagnodentDiagnodent Laser Cavity Detection
One of the keys to maintaining good oral health is identifying and treating cavities as early as possible. Since even the smallest amount of decay can threaten the integrity of the tooth, finding and filling cavities is essential to preventing future problems.
DIAGNOdent technology locates decay at its earliest stages. DIAGNOdent uses laser technology to detect decay by measuring laser fluorescence within the tooth structure. When the laser encounters altered tooth substances, including bacteria, the DIAGNOdent emits a fluorescent light and a reading is displayed indicating the presence and severity of the decay.
DIAGNOdent uses light energy so there is no X-ray exposure. It is painless, non-invasive, and prevents the need for “exploratory” excavation of suspected areas of decay. Not only does this technology allow us to prevent the spread of decay, but catching decay early means simpler and smaller fillings which preserves more of the natural tooth.
Low Radiation Digital X-Rays
Digital X-rays are taken with very low radiation. They require less time to process than traditional X-rays, use no harmful chemicals, and can be digitally enhanced or enlarged to aid the dentist in treatment planning.
With an intraoral camera, we can help you better understand what is happening in your mouth. Using up-close imagery of your mouth and digital X-rays on a computer screen, Dr. Harr can show you exactly what the problem is and better explain her recommendations for treatment.
Dental Implant Restoration
Dental Implants are a new alternative for tooth replacement. Dr. Harr has extensive experience in creating functional and aesthetic replacements for lost teeth.
