Digital Photographs

Digital photographs are useful for recording facial measurements and dental issues during a comprehensive dental health assessment Digital photographs are also used to record "Before and After" pictures for your records, and perhaps also to help other patients review the results of specific procedures.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays eliminate up to 90% of radiation you would be exposed to with conventional X-rays. The images are immediately available for study, so Dr. Ted Murray or Dr. Berning can explain what is happening in your mouth. Digital X-rays are one of the ways Exceptional Dentistry can continue our commitment to your health and safety.


DIAGNOdent is cutting-edge technology that uses a laser to detect very tiny areas of tooth decay. It has revolutionized a dentist’s ability to find and treat tiny cavities before they require more extensive treatment.

The i-Cat 3D Cone Beam Digital Imaging System

Whatever dental treatment you're considering, clear images of your teeth, gums and jaw are crucial if you are to get a sound diagnosis and treatment recommendation. That's why we use the i-Cat 3D Cone Beam Digital Imaging System. It provides our dentists with 3D images of your mouth, allowing us to gain crucial insight into your dental health. A typical scan takes just eight seconds.

Myotronics K7 Evaluation System

The K7 is a highly accurate diagnostic device that effectively measures and records symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ). The K7 evaluates your bite and determines your relaxed jaw position, which gives a starting point for treatment. You will receive a detailed but understandable printout of the findings.


The TENS unit gently stimulates muscle activity using low frequency electrical pulses. A session of 30 to 40 minutes will completely relax muscles that may have been tense for years. It is used in diagnosing TMJ and treating it.

Soft Tissue Diode Laser

This very advanced laser gently sculpts gums and other soft tissue to achieve a more balanced and harmonious smile line. Its mild heat vaporizes small amounts of tissue, sealing the area to prevent bleeding. This gives a shorter recovery time and optimal results.
