DC Dental Spa invests in the latest technology to ensure all of our patients receive exceptional care, while maximizing comfort, minimizing discomfort and shortening the treatment time required.
The 3D Extraoral Imaging System
This amazing piece of technology features both digital panoramic and focused-field 3D imaging modalities. It embodies an innovative and comprehensive approach by evaluating bone quality, viewing periapical lesions, localizing anatomic structures, pathologies, and more. Our dentists can use this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.
With the unprecedented details and angles of view that our 3D radiology system offers, we are able to discover a range of new diagnostic possibilities including:
- Complex Impactions
- …as well all surgery.
The 3d Imaging yields anatomically correct three-dimensional images directly on screen with higher resolution images at low radiation exposure.

Laser Dentistry & Benefits to You: No Shot, No Drill, No Pain
Effective and incredibly precise, laser dentistry has become a vital tool for a variety of dental treatments. At DC Dental Spa, we rely on laser dentistry technologies to reduce the risk of tissue damage while treating very specific areas of the mouth. Using laser dentistry, we are also able to create better experiences for patients who are afraid or anxious about being at the dentist.
Laser dentistry delivers many benefits for our patients, including:
- Minimized risk of bacterial infections
- Reduced wound healing time
- Minimized bleeding
When performed with laser dentistry, some treatments do not require anesthesia. Many treatments do not even require sutures. The technology also minimizes the risk of damaging the surrounding tissue when performing procedures.
The technology is used to examine cavities and tooth decay, seal tooth roots to prevent sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, reshape gum tissue to create a strong foundation for natural-looking restorations, improve your appearance and remove folds of soft tissue caused by poorly-fitting dentures. We also use laser dentistry during dental filling procedures, eliminating the need for local anesthetic injections and drills.
Laser dentistry may be particularly helpful for patients who are afraid of certain procedures or have a general fear of the dentist. If you feel anxious before your appointment, talk to our friendly and knowledgeable staff about laser dentistry and sedation dentistry options.
Offering laser dentistry is just one of the ways we better serve your dental needs. If you have questions about the technology or would like to schedule an appointment, contact our team today!
