Soft Tissue Laser -  Dr. Beck is pleased to offer this state-of-the-art technology to his patients.  Lasers are the most amazing new technology to come to dentistry in the last 50 years. The benefits include:
  • having gum surgery without the need for needles and no bleeding or stitches, being able to eat, drink and talk right after surgery with little discomfort.
  • not needing to hear the sounds of the dental drill.
  • an instrument that sterilizes as it heals"THAT IS WHAT LASERS DO!

Air Abrasion -  Dr. Beck uses an exciting new technology called Air Abrasion, which helps avoid the use of needles and an uncomfortable numb feeling. It removes the smallest possible amount of tooth structure, and enables your dentist to place strong natural looking restorations in only a few minutes.

Air abrasion involves the use of a special hand piece that creates a beam of abrasive particles propelled by a stream of clean, dry air.  Air abrasion is most effectively used for small early cavities, removal of stains, repair of small chips, and to repair or replace fillings.

Digital X-rays - Digital radiography is the latest way to take and evaluate x-rays. With digital x-rays, 80% less radiation is needed to produce high-quality images. These images can then be evaluated on a large flat-screen monitor. This allows for easier detection of any problems. With such a large image, it is also easier for patients to see and understand what is happening with their teeth.

Diagnodent / Laser Cavity Detector - Diagnodent is a major breakthrough that allows Dr. Beck to detect tooth decay that x-rays cannot see.   We can now locate hidden decay in it's earliest stage, and with treatment stop the spread of the disease before it destroys the tooth from within.  Click here to learn more about Diagnodent.

Dental Couch Potato - (TLC)  The Technology and Lighting Center (TLC) is the only overhead multimedia display that allows our patients to comfortably watch TV, digital x-rays or computer images, videos, or movies. Plus the integrated fiber optic dental light shines in our patient's mouth - not in their eyes, providing an unobstructed, glare-free, heat-free experience.  For more information, visit Dental Couch Potato.

Intra-oral Camera - A picture is worth a thousand words " especially in dentistry! Dr. Beck uses a small camera right inside your mouth to take highly magnified digital photos of your teeth. These photos can be displayed on a computer screen for both patient and doctor, and are invaluable in diagnosing and recording dental problems. They provide a window into your special care. Intra-oral photos also allow our patients to view what the dentist sees when they are evaluating your teeth.

Electric Handpieces - Smooth, quiet operation and consistently high torque throughout the entire speed range are the most important features that distinguish an electric motor from an air-driven high- or low-speed handpiece.  The lack of vibration will thrill you with it's absence. The high torque allows us to finish tooth preparation more quickly and accurately than conventional drills.

Vibraject System - We have developed a virtually painless dental anesthesia system.  Before "Novocain" is given, a gel anesthetic is gently placed on the gum and is allowed act.   We are using a PH friendly anesthetic since the PH (acidity or the lack of it) is almost the same as the body, that burning feeling is eliminated. Finally this system, connected to the Vibraject provides "good vibrations" distracting one away from the injection at hand.
