Latest technology


arrow_up Our modern treatment rooms have the latest technology

To ensure efficient service and accurate results, our state-of-the arts facility is outfitted with the latest dental equipment and tools, including the following recent technology:


arrow_up Dr. Maron showing a patient a digital x-ray of her root canal

  • Digital x-rays—We take digital x-rays to look for decay, abscesses, and other abnormal conditions in your mouth. The electronic sensor that we insert into your mouth captures images of your teeth and is connected to a computer, where the images are projected on a screen. Digital images are much larger and easier to see than traditional film images. In addition, we can magnify areas to see them closer. Most importantly, digital x-rays expose you to a lower dose of radiation and are safer for the environment than traditional x-rays.

  • DIAGNOdent laser caries detection system­—We use this hand-held device, which looks like a pen, to find tiny cavities in the biting surfaces that are undetectable with x-rays. The DIAGNOdent laser measures the fluorescence given off by waste products of bacteria associated with these small cavities and records the readings on a display.

  • Patient education videos—We know that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” so we use videos to show you your dental treatment options.


maron dental embletta sleep test new

arrow_up Compact device worn by patient for home sleep study

  • Embletta® x100 home sleep study system—This portable monitoring device performs many of the same tests that a hospital sleep study performs; however, you can use it in the comfort of your home. The Embletta measures the number of times your breathing stops, the oxygen level in your blood, and the position in which you sleep. It provides enough other data to fill a seven-page report! Our office uses this information to see if the oral sleep appliance is functioning well or needs more adjustments. In addition, we are able to send the test results to your physician.

arrow_up Dr Maron in the consult room explaining the Invisalign treatment plan to the patient

  • Invisalign computer-generated orthodontic treatment plansInvisalign® is a system of moving teeth in small increments with clear plastic aligners. The Invisalign treatment plan plots the step-by-step movement of the teeth in a series of computer-generated images. This plan enables us to show you visually what the proposed orthodontic treatment should accomplish. With conventional orthodontics, you cannot see what the final result will be.

maron dental 1033 intraoral camera new

arrow_up Hygienist taking an intraoral photo of the patient’s mouth

  • Intraoral camera—This pen-sized, camera-tipped wand, which we insert into your mouth, enables you to see the dental problems that require treatment. The intraoral camera takes photos of the inside of your mouth and transmits the images of your teeth through a computer unit to a large video screen. The images take some of the mystery out of dental treatment, enabling you to see the leakage around fillings and the fractures of teeth.

The silver filling prevents the x-ray from showing any decay in its vicinity, and the early decay between the teeth is too narrow to be detected by x-ray.


arrow_up Easyshade® Compact spectrophotometer to measure tooth color 

  • VITA Easyshade® Compact spectrophotometer—We use the VITA Easyshade® Compact spectrophotometer to measure tooth shades quickly and easily under any lighting condition. Using this hand-held device, we can measure natural teeth, check restoration shades, and track bleaching progress with the push of a button. The Easyshade Compact enhances the accuracy of choosing shades of crowns, veneers, and other restorations so that the decision is not just left to the human eye.

arrow_up Wireless compact soft tissue laser

  • NV Microlaser—We use the NV Microlaser for killing bacteria associated with gum disease and for reshaping or removing soft tissue in the mouth. Patients find that surgery done with the laser causes less discomfort and promotes faster healing. The laser relieves pain in cold sores and apthous ulcers in just minutes, removes annoying bumps in the mouth from cheek or lip bites quickly and easily with no bleeding, and provides fast relief—without bleeding—for patients who are tongue-tied. The list of uses is endless.
maron dental velscope

arrow_up Hand-held device to help detect oral cancer

  • VELscope® Vx Handpiece—We use this handheld device during our routine hygiene checkups to inspect your mouth and tongue for oral tissue abnormalities, including cancer and pre-cancer. The VELscope emits a safe, bright blue light that causes soft tissue of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissue glows in distinct patterns that may be visibly disrupted when tissue undergoes an abnormal change as it does in oral cancer. When discovered early, the 5-year survival rate for oral cancer patients is about 83 percent. Unfortunately, most cases of oral cancer are discovered in late stages, when the five-year survival rate drops to around 50 percent.
