Modern dentistry helps bring earlier, less-invasive treatment for outstanding results!

Become Part of the Team

Dr. Vocal works hand-in-hand with patients to create a bond of teamwork. One of the ways he brings this about is through the use of a high-tech tool, the intra-oral camera. This amazing device is a miniature video camera that displays a closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are doing fine. You then become a participant in each dental decision.

90% Reduction in Radiation

Digital X-rays allow us to take an image of your mouth with a digital sensor. The images are downloaded into our computer for immediate availability. This method results in 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays, and there’s no more chemical waste to pollute the environment!

Find Ultrasmall Cavities Years Earlier

We utilize a laser scanner that can find cavities years earlier, when the small cavity can be removed and repaired with a small invisible bonded filling. It can detect previously undetected decay that may be causing sensitivity. This identification allows us to remove the discomfort and leave you with a healthy smile.

Protect Your Teeth During Sports

Did you know that 5 million teeth are knocked out each year in the United States alone? Many sports can be dangerous without the proper protection. The one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in stores just don’t fit very well. Custom-made sports mouthguards fit well, protect well, and can be worn for any sport.

No More Headaches

We are excited to offer our patients the FDA-approved NTI™ device, a drug-free treatment for the prevention of migraine and tension headaches. This oral appliance relaxes the muscles under the scalp to prevent the majority of headaches. It’s painless, fast, and NOT expensive.

Nothing beats an easier, more comfortable dental visit. If you have questions about the latest dental technology, give us a call today at (207) 808-7939.
