Your enjoyable dental experience depends on your comfort and safety. Drs. Lee and Barton and their team utilize the latest technological advances in dental equipment and techniques to ensure your satisfaction with your visit and your continued excellent health.

Digital X-rays

Digital radiographs are a technological advancement that results in less exposure to radiation for our patients and an almost instantaneous picture for our dentists. Unlike traditional, film-based x-rays, digital x-rays often show more detail and can be archived in our system for future reference and comparison. You will appreciate a more comfortable visit with less waiting and quicker treatment.

Intraoral cameras

An intraoral camera lets you see inside your mouth during both treatment planning and dental procedures. Our intraoral camera displays your teeth on a video screen, allowing Drs. Lee and Barton to walk you through your proposed treatment. The use of this camera allows us to work with you as a team to meet your dental care goals. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and discuss your treatment options with you. We want you to picture how your appearance will improve with dental care, giving you all the more reason to smile.

Digital Photography

Digital photography gives Drs. Lee and Barton instant images to use for cosmetic imaging or to keep on file to track your progress. Digital images can be saved electronically and are more efficient than traditional photographs that show less detail and must be taken off-site for development.

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

You deserve to feel comfortable and confident when you visit Lee & Barton DDS. For those who suffer from extreme anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry as a safe and reliable way for you to feel comfortable and relaxed. Nitrous oxide is a proven relaxing agent that is both fast-acting and quick-to-wear-off after your treatment. You will not lose consciousness and will be aware and able to talk to your doctor, but you will feel very calm and stress-free during treatment.
