Dental Chairs

No one wants to get up after experiencing the comfort of our dental chairs with built-in massage controls, adjustable headrests and tempurapedic cushioning!

Digital X-rays

It is important to know that your doctor is keeping up with the constant and rapid advancements in modern dental technology. Digital x-rays are just one more advantage you will have at your disposal when you visit our office. Instead of using a conventional film, we use a special computer sensor which puts the x-ray picture directly into the computer and which allows us to reduce the amount of harmful radiation by nearly 90%. Since the pictures are in the computer, we can enhance the images to better diagnose conditions--often before they become problems. This proves to be much more convenient for you because the x-rays can then be displayed on the computer right in front of you!

Intra-oral Dental Camera

Handheld digital intra-oral cameras can enhance our ability to view certain areas and can help us to share the images with our patients to enhance diagnosis and patient education.

Laser Dentistry

Dr. Bruce Nelson's office uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ which is FDA approved and manufactured by Millennium Dental Technologies in the USA.  It can be used as part of our patient-friendly and minimally invasive treatments for gum disease and other soft-tissue procedures.  When used in our LANAP® procedure, it can take the place of traditional cut and suture surgery.  [ LINK to LANAP page for more info.]
