Advanced Technologies For Better Dental Care

Over the years, patients have avoided dental treatment because their past experiences have been invasive, painful, or complicated. Dr. Koch is pleased to present his patients with advanced dental technology for more comfortable treatments than ever before!

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays provide several advanced imaging options. Digital x-rays result in:

  • Reduced time in the office
  • Clearer dental photos
  • Decreased radiation exposure

Digital x-rays are more convenient than their traditional predecessors. They are also safer and more accurate.

CEREC

All-ceramic crowns-in-a-day are a new alternative for patients seeking a fast smile transformation. CEREC dental crowns are made chairside, and customized to your exact specifications. No messy impressions, no tricky temporaries, and no return visits.

Oral Cancer Screening

Almost 500,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year. In the US, oral cancer kills about one person every hour, and unfortunately, some people have oral cancer without even knowing it.

By diagnosing and treating oral cancer early, a patient’s survival rate can be 80-90% greater! We use advanced oral cancer screening technology to ensure your safety with regular painless exams.

3D Cone Beam

The 3D cone beam gives us high resolution images that assist us in collecting important information about your smile. The 3D Cone Beam increase our knowledge in areas like:

  • The position of the teeth and jaws, and how orthodontics may help
  • Ideal locations for dental implant placement
  • Details of anatomy for precise root canals and other endodontic procedures
  • Positioning of the jaw, mouth, and throat to learn more about TMJ and sleep apnea problems

TMJ Bite Treatment Technology

Dr. Koch strives to provide lasting relief from jaw pain by reshaping the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Using advanced imaging and diagnostic technology, we can tweak your smile until you achieve an optimal bite. When you are no longer putting extra pressure on certain parts of the mouth, you will obtain perfect harmony between your teeth and jaw.

T-Scan

The T-Scan is a handheld device that connects to Dr. Koch’s computer. You simply bite down on the thin sensor and the computer will acquire extensive information about your bite. From your bite’s positioning to its movements, Dr. Koch can gather a series of images and design a personalized treatment plan to optimize your oral health.
