State-of-the-Art Dentistry

One of the first things you will notice about Breezy Bay Dental is that our entire office is digital. Whether you enter your patient information via our website or use the tablets available in the office, you will find our data collection systems efficient, simple, and always up-to-date.

All of your intraoral radiographs, or x-rays, are taken using the Sirona Schick Sensor System. The resulting images are clear, precise, and immediate – no more waiting for traditional x-rays. Instant viewing also allows our doctor to complete your procedures in a timely manner, offering you care that is both prompt and precise, making your treatment plan a breeze.

3-D Panoramic Imaging

Incredible advancements have been made to 3-D imaging in the last decade. We now have the ability to perform dental grade CT Scans right here in our office, no referral needed. You simply stand in the same machine that takes our normal two-dimensional panoramic radiographs and allow it to collect the CT Scan information.

The radiation you will receive is minimal and the quality of the image is extremely high. Once the image is constructed, our doctor can accurately determine all the necessary information needed to safely place implants. This CT Scan will help our doctor better diagnose and treat dental issues, as well as gain an understanding of your TMJ and airway functionality.

No-Mess Impressions

At Breezy Bay Dental, the majority of our impressions are captured digitally. That means no more messy pink stuff!

Instead of sinking your teeth into goopy impression material, a slender, non-invasive wand is waved over your teeth and surrounding structures inside your mouth. Once the information is recorded, an exact replica of your mouth will be fully digitized and available to be sent to the lab for dental work fabrication. The accuracy and level of comfort with this method is unparalleled.

In our office, all of your pertinent information is displayed right in front of you at your dental chair so that you can openly discuss recommendations, receive feedback, and customize your treatment plan directly. You’ll always be informed about your treatment and what it will cost.

Equipment like this puts Breezy Bay Dental at the forefront of digital dentistry and dental implant technology. We can’t wait for you to experience it first-hand.
