⇒Carbon Footprint

Our state-of-the-art 3M scanner, creates a 3D image of the patient’s mouth, removing the need for messy and uncomfortable impressions. From digital x-ray imaging utilizing the Nomad hand-held x-ray emitter as well as, traditional wall-mounted emitters, Velscope handheld scope is used during new and existing patient exams, and paperless charting, to the use of a Dental Mercury Vapor and Oral Aerosol Vacuum System which is specifically designed to remove and filter potentially toxic vapors and microbiological contaminants we have made it a point to do our part in keeping the environment clean. Working diligently to generate the lowest possible carbon footprint.

⇒Intraoral Cameras

Intraoral Cameras are an easy and convenience way to take videos and high-quality color images of the mouth. Dr. Bauer uses the device to diagnose fractures the naked eye would never have seen and to help solve the patients’ biggest problem, which is to accept treatment for conditions that they often do not understand. With an intraoral digital camera, Dr. Bauer is able to effortlessly educate the patient of their condition by allowing you to see and visualize what she sees.

⇒Digital Radiography

Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital x-ray sensors are used instead of the traditional photographic film. The benefits and advantages from digital radiology are enormous and includes time efficiency, the use of less radiation, images can be taken, previewed, examined, deleted and corrected immediately and the ability to transfer and apply special image processing techniques that enhances the overall display of the image. Digital radiology reduces costs associated with processing, managing and storing films. In addition, the digital x-ray image can be given to the patient on a compact disk to take for their records and can be saved as part of the patient’s medical record.

⇒Endodontic Rotary Instrumentation

Endodontic rotary instrumentation is a modern way to perform root canals therapy and allows for better cleansing of canals, faster root canal treatments and a better prognosis. This treatment is a valuable defense against tooth loss, since it is an alternative to extraction of the infected teeth. Dr. Bauer uses this instrument to instantly and accurately remove the infected pulp within the canal in order to save the tooth. If the tooth needs added support, she will place a post in the canal and secure it with dental cement to add strength and cover the tooth with a dental crown to protect it. Moreover, Dr. Bauer offer advanced techniques in sedation dentistry to enhance root canal therapy and other general dentistry treatments, so patients can receive needed dental care with minimal discomfort and stress.
