Our Technology


Much more comfortable than traditional ‘bite wings,’ digital imaging provides clear, enlarged images in seconds while reducing radiation exposure up to 90%. The process also eliminates the need for film and processing chemicals, creating an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional dental x-rays. You’ll be able to view images on a flat screen TV with your doctor or hygienist, giving you more involvement in treatment decisions.


Dr. Duffy utilizes the latest digital technologies in his practice, including the Trios Intraoral Scanner by 3Shape technologies. This revolutionary scanner eliminates the need for uncomfortable and awkward impression materials sitting inside your mouth for minutes at a time. We use the scanner in our office for digital dentures, partials, crowns, bridges, nightguards, bleach trays, Invisalign and digital smile design as well. With the implementation of the digital scanner in the practice, our crowns return from our lab faster and have a more precise and accurate fit. The scanner also allows more detailed communication with Dr. Duffy and his team of dental laboratories.
