3D CT Scanner & Guided Implant Precision

Unlike traditional 2D x-rays, a 3D CT image provides important information to Dr. Grantham when planning and placing restorations. He can clearly see and work with your unique facial structure during procedures. You can be confident that implants and other restorations will be placed with absolute precision.

Intra-Oral Camera

The small and unobtrusive intra-oral camera allows Dr. Grantham to view areas inside the mouth with more clarity than a mirror. The images are on a computer screen so he can better view areas of concern. The camera helps Dr. Grantham assess and treat any issues you may have.

E4D Same Day Dentistry

With the PlanScan CAD/CAM Restoration System, driven by E4D Technologies, Dr. Grantham can produce lab-quality restorations in hours instead of days. With remarkable speed and accuracy, intuitive design software, on-site milling, and of course, no impressions or powders, you will be thrilled with the experience. The result is a vastly improved restorative process that gives patients a comfortable and convenient dental experience.

DIAGNOdent Cavity Detection

In order to maintain a healthy smile, the earliest possible care is essential. DIAGNOdent aids in the early detection of hard-to-see cavities. Early detection enables Dr. Grantham to protect and preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible.

Soft Tissue Laser Diode Frenectomy

For procedures involving surgery on the gums or soft tissues, using a laser can be less invasive than other options. Lasers can also kill infections, and heal faster without the need for suturing. Dr. Grantham opts for laser procedures whenever appropriate.

Oral ID

Dr. Grantham offers all of his patients free oral cancer screenings with OralID. OralID’s fluorescence technology uses a blue light that allows Dr. Grantham to identify oral cancer, pre-cancer, and other abnormal lesions at an earlier stage.

TScan

TScan is a device that helps Dr. Grantham accurately measure bite force over time. The TScan assists Dr. Grantham in helping protect your dental work and natural teeth.

Joint Vibration Analysis

JVA provides Dr. Grantham with a non-invasive measurement of TMJ function to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of TMD, orthodontics, reconstructive dentistry, and sleep dentistry.

DentalVibe

DentalVibe is a handheld device designed to reduce the pain and fear associated with the dreaded dental injection for children, and adults. DentalVibe can be used with any dental anesthetic injection syringe to deliver comfortable injections in all areas of the mouth. The vibrations assist Dr. Grantham in keeping you as comfortable as possible.
