Digital Dental Radiography

With Digital Dental Radiography we can do X Rays more comfortably and with 70% to 90% less radiation. Improved accuracy means we have to re-expose our patients less often. There’s no film to develop, and in a few seconds both you and Dr. Hudimac can be discussing a computerized image that’s easy to see and helps us communicate your problems clearly.


DIAGNOdent is an advanced laser technology for finding tooth decay. DIAGNOdent scans your teeth with harmless pulses of laser light, finding decay that’s hidden inside or between teeth, where conventional examinations may miss it. Of course, finding decay in its earliest stages helps us provide the least stressful and least expensive dental care for our patients.

Computerized Implant Planning

With the aid of a cone beam CT scan, we rely on in-depth 3D imaging to make decisions on your implant’s placement, reducing the chance of complications significantly.

We employ BioHorizons’ virtual implant placement software to analyze your CT scan, which then provides a variety of perspectives and views that simply would not be available without it.   Learn more on our Computerized Implant Planning page.
