Digital X-Rays

We offer digital radiographs (X-Rays). Digital radiographs us less radiation and are safer for you than traditional film x-rays. You will find that Dr. Pannese researches the latest trends in technology to find the solutions that promote your overall health, safety and comfort. Radiographs are a necessary diagnostic tool in the field of dentistry. More than half of each tooth is hidden and surrounded by bone. The only way to truly evaluate the health of your teeth and bone surrounding your teeth is through the necessary, diagnostic radiographs.


A new and wonderful era in dentistry has begun. Our high-tech office is pleased to offer this state-of-the-art technology to our patients. The Biolase™ water laser and the Biolase™ gum laser are two examples of advanced technology that ensures effective, fast treatment for patients like you. Lasers are extremely gentle devices that allow for faster healing and little to no post treatment discomfort.

Lasers have the capability to:

    • Perform gum surgery without the need for needles and no bleeding or stitches, being able to eat, drink and talk right after surgery with no discomfort.
    • Fill teeth without the need for needles, being able to eat and talk and chew right after fillings.
    • Remove decay from small fillings and replace them with the natural color of your tooth.
    • Perform dentistry without the need for a drill
    • Sterilize your restoration and gum tissue as it s healing 

You may experience the benefits of Biolase™ technology during treatments for gum disease, cavities and biopsies as well as during delicate procedures like cosmetic gum lifts.
