Technology at Grand Dental

Technology has changed almost every aspect of our day-to-day lives, and the field of dentistry is no different. Our office strives to be on the progressive edge of dental technology to make your smile better and your visit easier.

Our office uses entirely digital radiography (x-rays) for less radiation and instant processing. Each of our operatories is equipped with dual monitors and an intraoral camera, so that you can see what we see in your mouth on a screen. We also utililize a soft tissue laser for gum tissue management when necessary.

Below you can learn about some of the more exciting technologies that our office utilizes and how it impacts your treatment.

Computer-aided, same-day dentistry with Cerec

Since 2006, our office has been using the Cerec system to fabricate crowns in-house for same-day dentistry. As the technology improves, we have continued to move more and more of our crown production to this method.

X-ray imaging

Radiograph, or x-rays, are an important part of a dental examination. Our office uses 100% digital radiographs which allow for instant image processing and a fraction of the radiation of analog radiograph. Our office has the ability to make both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional radiographs in-house.

Digital planning for complex cases

In cases with increased complexity, such as those involving implants or restoring many teeth, our doctors have the ability to digitally plan the case, working hand-in-hand with local laboratories and specialists to make sure that you receive the highest level of care.
