Digital X-ray Technology

Low-Radiation Digital X‑rays

Has it been a while since your last dental exam? If so, you will be pleasantly surprised by the ease and comfort of digital X-rays! There are no more thin, sharp trays digging into your gums; no more huge machines rotating around your head trying to get the perfect picture; and no more waiting periods to get your scans. This amazing technology has revolutionized dentistry!

Digital X-rays emit less radiation than conventional X-rays and don’t require any chemical processing, making them a safe and fast diagnostic tool for our team. We use standard and panoramic (360°) digital X-rays in almost all of our dental exams, because many serious problems with the teeth and facial bones can’t be seen by the naked eye.

Intraoral Camera

Intraoral Camera

With our intraoral camera, you see what we see during your exam. We use this camera to get a better view of hard-to-reach areas (like the back molars) and to give you a more complete understanding of your dental health and treatment needs.

Diagnodent Cavity Detection

Laser-Assisted Cavity Detection

Diagnodent® is a painless scanner that uses laser technology to identify cavities and areas of concern that can’t be seen during a visual exam. Cavities actually glow under the Diagnodent laser light, so Dr. Ton and our team can’t miss them! When we detect tooth decay early, Dr. Ton can place smaller fillings and save you a great deal of time and money on future dental treatment.

Periolase Laser Gum Therapy

Laser Gum Therapy

Laser technology will completely transform the way you think about oral surgery. It offers a number of benefits over conventional gum and soft tissue treatments, including:

  • More comfortable and efficient appointments
  • Remarkable precision with less damage to healthy tissue
  • No scalpels, no sutures, and fewer follow-up visits
  • Faster healing and longer-lasting results

Dr. Ton uses the PerioLase® dental laser, which emits quick pulses of energy that gently removes infected gum tissue. The high-intensity laser energy doesn’t just kill the bacteria that cause gum disease—it’s actually been proven to promote the regrowth of soft tissue cells!

Laser gum therapy is a minimally invasive treatment, so it typically only requires a little local anesthesia in the area being treated. The average recovery period is less than 24 hours, but most people leave our Oakley dental office feeling good enough to get back to their normal routine.

Oral ID

OralIDâ„¢ Cancer Screening

According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, oral cancer kills one American every hour, and its incidence has increased over the past five years. The best way to fight back against these cancers and to give treatment the best chance at success is to catch them early.

Dr. Ton uses OralIDâ„¢ for all oral cancer screenings. OralID uses a proven fluorescence technology that allows detection of oral cancer, pre-cancer, and other abnormal lesions at an earlier stage, which is crucial. Call today to schedule your oral cancer screening. It only takes five minutes and could save your life!
