Office Information
Special Equipment

We strive to employ the latest dental techniques and equipment in our office. Our staff is up to date on current continuing education and utilization of advanced equipment and procedures. This includes:

High Accuracy Laser Cavity Detection
Diagnodent is a hand-held laser used to diagnose cavities at any stage of development. It allows for a pain-free, highly-accurate and fast diagnosis that allows Dr. Hanchett to treat cavities early and successfully.  After drying your teeth, Dr. Hanchett will point the laser at each one, and read the laser's monitor to see if you have any cavities, their location and extent.

Panoramic Radiography
Panoramic Radiography (Panorex) is an advanced full-mouth x-ray that allows a full "panoramic" view of your teeth. This type of x-ray is often necessary in the diagnosis of dental implant placement, comprehensive periodontal therapy, and evaluating wisdom teeth.

Low Radiation Digital X-Rays
Digital X-Rays are taken with very low radiation. They require less time to process      than traditional X-rays, use no harmful chemicals, and can be digitally enhanced or enlarged to aid the dentist in treatment planning.

Advanced Dental Implant Restoration
Dental Implants are a new alternative in tooth replacement.  Dr. Hanchett has extensive experience in creating functional and aesthetic replacements for lost teeth.

Intraoral Camera
With an intraoral camera, we can help you better understand what is happening in your mouth. Using up-close imagery of your mouth on a computer screen Dr. Hanchett can show you exactly what the problem is and better explain his recommendations.
