Dental Technology

We incorporate advanced dental technology into our treatment to increase your comfort and our ability to diagnose and treat you.

  • Low Radiation Digital Xrays

    Uses 90% less radiation and provides immediate images to quickly diagnose hidden problems.

  • Intraoral Camera

    See your mouth just as we do. The camera helps us educate our patients in treatment and diagnosis.

  • Digital Panoramic CT Scan

    This technology allows us to plan your treatment with a full 3D, high-resolution view of your jaw and bone structure. It is a low radiation device that makes our restorative and cosmetic work more precise.

  • Calming Nitrous Oxide Sedation

    Known to many simply as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is beneficial in calming a patient’s anxiety before a procedure. It is used primarily for its anesthetic and analgesic properties.

  • Relaxing Oral Sedation

    We can administer an oral sedative to relax you before performing any dental procedure.

  • CEREC® Single Visit Crowns

    Have your damaged tooth restored in one comfortable, convenient visit! We build and attach a restoration in the same day, saving you the hassle of returning for a second appointment. Additionally, we will not need to place a temporary crown for you. And you can watch while the machine sculpts your new crown!

  • Invisalign® Orthodontics

    A revolutionary way of straightening your teeth without metal wires or brackets. Invisalign® works through a series of clear, comfortable, and virtually invisible aligners that you can remove whenever you eat, drink, brush or floss.

Giving Back

These are some of the images at our Guatemalan missions

Dr. Gyselinck has always believed in giving back. In his dental career, has has taken part in 10 international mission trips, where he has provided dental services to people who have not had access to that level of care, and construction services as well. His mission trips have taken him to many places. Dr Gyselinck and his family have found these trips to be amazing experiences.

“I would tell anyone to do the same thing. There is something very gratifying about being on vacation in a beautiful place, while also giving back and helping the local community. I want to share these pictures to encourage others that these type of family trips can be fun, educational, and fulfilling.” – Dr. G
