Dental Technology

St. Joseph general dentist Dr. Sven Erickson has created a highly adaptive, technologically advanced dental center and is constantly searching for ways to improve our services. Always ready to adopt inventive techniques or equipment, Dr. Erickson carefully chooses the upgrades that will most effectively improve your patient experience and achieve the best possible results.

Enjoying the Digital Age

Our x-rays are digital, creating a better view inside your mouth with significantly less exposure to radiation. In certain situations, we may also utilize cone beam computed tomography, also known as a CBCT. A CBCT is a special type of x-ray that allows your dentist to generate 3D images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerves, and bones in one simple scan. Digital tooth impressions are highly accurate and environmentally conscious. We use hard- and soft-tissue lasers for deep cleaning and reshaping, which is much safer and more comfortable than the original by-hand instrumentation.

We also have CEREC crown technology, which gives us the opportunity to create a dental crown in just one visit using digital scanning and advanced CAD/CAM sculpting. Imagine that – we can create a dental crown perfectly matched to the rest of your teeth while you’re sitting in the dental chair. To help our patients with temporomandibular joint disorder, we have a variety of treatment methods available including the Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Therapy Laser. This state-of-the-art technology is FDA-cleared to help reduce pain and inflammation without the need for surgery or prescription medication.
