We offer digital radiographs (X-Rays).  Digital radiographs us less radiation and are safer for you than traditional film x-rays.  You will find that Dr. Oister researches the latest trends in technology to find the solutions that promote your overall health, safety and comfort.  Radiographs are a necessary diagnostic tool in the field of dentistry.  More than half of each tooth is hidden and surrounded by bone.  The only way to truly evaluate the health of your teeth and bone surrounding your teeth is through the necessary, diagnostic radiographs.

Intra Oral Camera

Quit relying on small mirrors, flashlights and pulling back your tender cheek.  With an intraoral camera, you see exactly what your dentist sees during treatment planning and dental procedures.  You have a greater understanding of your oral health and of our recommended treatments.  Our dental team uses this technology to discuss treatment options with you and is happy to answer any questions you may have. 

Digital Photography

Digital photography gives Dr. Oister instant images to use for cosmetic imaging or to keep on file to track your progress. Digital images can be saved electronically and are more efficient than traditional photographs that show less detail and must be taken off-site for development.
