Digital Images & Photography
The benefits of digital X-rays are the speed of seeing the teeth & bone levels within seconds, but most of all there is 90% less radiation exposure to you. In addition it is environmentally friendly as there is no lead film backing or toxic chemicals to dispose of! You the patient can also see the x-ray image on the computer monitor just as easily as the dentist can. But not all sensors are the same, ours are very small and rounded edges are the most comfortable!
CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) a 3D image!
The Instrumentarium machine has THE lowest radiation dosage delivered for the patient while getting the MOST amount of information for you. Some 3D machines can only capture 2-3 teeth at a time while ours captures the whole mouth with 1/8 the dosage of other machines. This is also thousands time less than the medical CT machines in hospitals!
We offer needle free anesthesia that works very well for some of our non surgical procedures like root planing and even for minor events even the laser can be used with NO needles.

Infection Control & Lasers
Dr Desai constantly trains and invests in our patients' health by bringing them the latest in cutting edge dentistry. Dr Desai has received advanced training in using lasers for dental applications. We use our laser for healing painful ulcers at the speed of light, to recontouring the gums for an esthetic gum lift or treatment of periodontal disease! The applications of lasers are numerous. The results are always amazing since the trauma to the tissues is negligible as compared to traditional surgery. Healing times are much shorter and the esthetic results are pleasing."
