How Technology Benefits Our Patients

Advanced dental technology allows us to provide our patients with the best dental care. We can provide more accurate diagnoses and treatments and more comfortable and efficient care. Our advanced technology also allows us to view detailed images of the teeth and surrounding structures, so we can correctly identify any issues and create a plan of action tailored to each patient. Additionally, this technology allows us to identify potential problems before they become more significant. This can help our patients reduce the time spent in the dentist’s chair and save them money in the long run. 


Our Dental Technology

Our advanced technology allows us to provide more efficient and accurate treatments, which can help our patients maintain healthy and beautiful smiles. Some of our dental technology includes:


Cone Beam

Cone Beam Dental Technology is a type of 3D imaging that we use to get a detailed look at the mouth and teeth of a patient. This imaging is used to evaluate oral health and provide a more detailed view of the teeth and gums. The technology takes a series of x-ray images from different angles and combines them into a three-dimensional image. This imaging allows Dr. Shadid to better understand the bone structure, tooth structure, and other areas of the mouth. 


Cone Beam Dental Technology is most commonly used when planning complex dental procedures such as implants, root canals, and orthodontic treatments. By providing a detailed view of the mouth, Dr. Shadid can provide more accurate treatment plans for our patients. We can also diagnose diseases and dental issues not visible on traditional x-rays.


The technology is also beneficial for reducing radiation exposure as it reduces the amount of radiation exposure by up to 70%. This technology is also less invasive than traditional x-ray imaging and can provide a more comfortable experience for the patient.


Intraoral Scanner

Intraoral dental scanners are digital imaging tools used by dentists to create 3D models of the teeth and mouth. This technology is used to diagnose and treat oral conditions and diseases more accurately. Intraoral dental scanners use optical imaging techniques to capture images of the mouth and teeth, which we then use to create a 3D model. These models are then used to plan treatments, such as dental restorations or orthodontic appliances.


Dr. Shadid uses the technology to create digital models of the mouth, which he then uses to plan treatments. He also uses the scanner to track the progress of treatments, such as checking the accuracy of restorations. The scanners allow him to detect and diagnose conditions more quickly and accurately than traditional methods.



LANAP laser dentistry is a state-of-the-art new procedure revolutionizing how dentists treat gum disease. This minimally-invasive surgical procedure uses lasers to remove diseased gum tissue while leaving healthy tissue intact. Unlike traditional surgery, LANAP laser dentistry does not require cutting or sewing the gum tissue, reducing the risk of infection and pain. The procedure is often done under local anesthesia, meaning patients experience minimal discomfort.


Dr. Shadid advocates using the most advanced technology available to ensure the best outcomes for his patients. He believes that using lasers in dentistry can dramatically improve the quality of life for his patients.
