We offer the latest proven methods and tools of modern dentistry to make your visit to us the best it can be.

75% Reduction in Radiation

We reduce your exposure to X-ray radiation at our practice by 75% by using digital X-rays. Images are captured with a digital sensor and downloaded to our computer where they are immediately available to us. No more treatment delays while we wait for the film to develop. No more chemical waste to pollute the environment. In addition, with panoramic digital X-rays, we can view your entire mouth in one shot, including the upper and lower jaws, giving Dr. Paulson a better picture of your mouth.

Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the TeamDigital Dental Imaging Traverse City MI

An intra-oral camera is a high-tech miniature video camera that allows you to see the inside of your mouth on a display screen. Now you can see what Dr. Paulson sees, and together you can make informed decisions about your dental care. You'll love your ability to become an active participant in the process of improving your dental health.

Isolite™ – An Advance in Patient Comfort

Would you like to spend a third less time in the dental chair? We are pleased to offer a new technology that not only makes shorter treatment times a reality but makes your time in the chair even more comfortable. Isolite combines a suction device with a brilliant light that illuminates the oral cavity, eliminating distracting shadows in addition to vacuuming away debris. You'll no longer suffer through the "gagging" feeling that can occur when saliva builds up. The advanced illumination also helps the doctor’s accuracy. Isolite keeps the teeth and gums dry and can often eliminate the need for a bulky rubber dam, which means less chance that you'll ever again experience over-extension fatigue in your jaws. Good news for your next visit to the dental chair.

Improved Athletics and Protected Teeth

Your ability to draw in a full breath increases your power and strength whether you're simply training or playing an active sport such as basketball or football. A properly fitted sportsguard aligns your jaw and improves your air capacity. The one-size-fits-all guards found in stores tend to be a sloppy fit and can even interfere with proper breathing during an active performance. We offer custom-fitted mouthguards and sportsguards. Not only will these custom guards properly align your mouth and improve your breathing capacity, they'll reduce the risk you'll accidently damage or a knock out a tooth. Within the United States, an estimated 5 million teeth are knocked out or injured every year. Don't let this happen to you! Ask us about custom-fitted mouthguards.
