We want to bring you the very best that dentistry has to offer. The driving force behind technological advancement is our desire to provide you with dental treatment that can be performed in a more efficient, effective, comfortable manner leading to the best results possible. Dentistry is a rapidly advancing field. Therefore, Dr. Hiebert and Dr. Smith routinely invest in new technology, keeping our practice at the forefront of cutting-edge innovations to benefit our valued patients.
Our innovative Dexis digital x-ray system gives us an image instantly. This produces results that are faster, more accurate, and more comfortable for our patients. Digital radiography reduces radiation by up to 80% and the Dexis x-rays will allow our team to diagnose any underlying dental problems. Drs. Hiebert and Smith recommend receiving x-rays during your routine cleanings.
The DIAGNOdent laser cavity-detection system allows us to diagnose and treat a variety of issues including cavities, caries, and periodontitis at the earliest stages. DIAGNOdent uses laser fluorescence to detect abnormalities in the tooth structure while causing no damage to the infected or healthy teeth. This means fewer visits and a more conservative treatment!
T-Scan is a computerized diagnostic tool that helps Dr. Hiebert and Dr. Smith identify and treat problems with your bite. This includes premature contact between teeth, high bite force, and the relationship between bite surfaces. Patients that are suffering from occlusion can prevent or diagnose TMD and broken or malfunctioning dental implants using T-Scan.
This allows Dr. Hiebert and Dr. Smith to quickly and predictably diagnose and treat TMJ issues or aid in designing a new bite for you.
Surface EMG™ is the worldwide standard method for recording muscle-specific activity in skeletal muscles and BioEMG™ is a premier tool in neuromuscular dentistry. It provides a plethora of precision data regarding jaw functionality, for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of TMD. It also provides invaluable information for Dr. Hiebert and Dr. Smith as they create beautiful dentistry that works with our patients’ physiology for optimum results.
Dr. Hiebert and Dr. Smith use intra-oral and extra-oral high definition digital cameras to assist in the diagnosis, treatment, and documentation of all of our phases and types of treatment. Patients can see their dental progress through these photos and feel confident that their treatment is progressing as it should be.
