Arrowhead Dental has always been on the forefront of acquiring and becoming proficient with the latest dental technology. Our entire team is continually training to keep abreast of changes in dental procedures and technology that make your treatment and time spent in our office the best it possible can be.
Digital Intraoral Camera
Laser Cavity Detection
Oral Cancer Screening
Soft Tissue Laser
This is Dr. Brendan Gouin with our PerioLase MVP-7, currently the only FDA approved laser for periodontal surgery. The perio laser is used to treat periodontal disease using the LANAP protocol, an alternative to conventional periodontal surgery. This laser can also be used for many other soft tissue conditions with great results and little to no discomfort.
Digital Flat Screen Monitors
Positioned above every dental chair are digital monitors which allow our patients to participate in the co-diagnosis of their oral condition by viewing x-ray, photos and video of their dental exam. The monitors are also used for patient education videos; relaxing DVD’s or cable programming to take your mind away from dental treatment.
We offer complimentary Wi-Fi in our reception areas and throughout the office. Just ask one of our Patient Care Coordinators for the password and a complimentary iPad for you to use while in our office.
All x-rays taken our office are performed with digital sensors. This has allowed us to reduce what was already very low exposure levels by another 50% making digital x-rays very safe. As a comparison the average radiation exposure a person receives from natural sources per year is 3,000 microsieverts (msv), a mammogram is 440 msv, a CT scan is 8,000 msv, a five hour airline flight is 25 msv, while a single digital dental intraoral image is only 4 microsieverts, a panoramic film is 17 msv. Dental images are extremely low dose compared with medical imaging and cumulative natural sources.
