Advanced Dental Technology – Tulsa, OK

Using Trailblazing Technology to Achieve Outstanding Results

As a dedicated lifelong learner, Dr. Hammond understands the importance of keeping up with the latest technology and techniques used in her field. That’s why she regularly attends seminars at world-renowned SPEAR Education. She implements what she’s learned in her practice to offer patients the best possible results, including using the latest dental technology in Tulsa, like soft tissue lasers, laser cavity detection systems, and more. We welcome you to read below and learn more about some of the devices we utilize during your dental checkups and procedures.

CT/Cone Beam Scanner

Our cone beam CT scanner has the ability to capture a complete, 3D X-ray of your entire facial structure, allowing Dr. Hammond to view the nerves, sinuses, bone density, and other important details. We typically utilize our KaVo cone beam scanner to help us diagnose more complex issues, like TMJ disorder, as well as plan extensive treatments, like dental implant placement. It takes less than 30 seconds to capture the image and is immediately viewable to our team, allowing us to take a streamlined and detailed approach to care.

Digital Dental Impressions

Our team has invested in a state-of-the-art iTero digital dental impression system to make capturing impressions more precise and efficient. Using a small wand-like device that we wave around the mouth, we’re able to create a digital, 3D rendering of your oral structure that we can send off to our dental laboratory. The detail that it captures allows for better-fitting, comfortable, and longer-lasting crowns, dentures, veneers, and more.

Soft Tissue Laser

Our Gemini™ Diode Laser is an outstanding piece of technology that has the ability to completely eliminate the use of a scalpel and sutures in certain surgical procedures, like frenectomies and gum disease therapy. It emits a concentrated beam of light out of the end of it that can easily remove overgrown or damaged soft tissue while cauterizing the area on-contact. This results in more comfortable procedures, shorter recovery times, and less post-operative discomfort and bleeding.


Dentist using Diagnodent cavity detection system

Cavities can form between the teeth and in other places that are hard to see with the naked eye, or even an intraoral camera! That’s why we invested in our DIAGNOdent™ pen, which illuminates areas of decay by simply shining it within your mouth. It uses special laser fluorescence technology that can identify any severity of a cavity forming, even in its earliest stages when it might not be visible, allowing our team to tackle it before it has a chance to require a larger filling.

Intraoral Camera

Our intraoral camera is another diagnostic instrument we use to help us view the earliest threats of oral health problems that might not be visible. It’s a pen-shaped device with a camera at the tip of it that allows us to capture still images and live video footage that we can display on a large chairside monitor. In addition to helping Dr. Hammond and our hygienists view the nooks and crevices of your smile in more detail, it helps us provide visual education on what types of issues we’re seeing and better explain how we can treat them.
