We use state-of-the-art digital x-ray sensors and a digital panoramic x-ray machine, which use 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays. This allows for the lowest dose, and our extra small sensors make it as easy and comfortable as possible.
The Dry Shield is a unique mouthpiece that isolates sections of the mouth and protects your child’s lips, cheeks and tongue. Your child will be able to rest their mouth comfortably as it suctions, making their visit more relaxing and enjoyable.
Dr. Mann uses high tech dental lasers to achieve results with NO needles, NO numbing and NO stress! Based oan what treatment a child needs, she selects one of her lasers: C02, erbium or DIAGNOdent, to allow her to complete many procedures such as fillings with no numbing, decay detection, frenectomies, and even nerve treatments!

Dr. Mann uses the LightScalpel CO2 laser for soft tissue procedures such as tongue and lip frenectomies, fibroma removal, herpetic lesions treatment, gingivectomy, gingivoplasty, and soft-tissue biopsies. The LightScalpel CO2 laser operates at a specific wavelength that is highly efficient in cutting and coagulating the soft tissue at the same time. Water, which makes up most biological tissue, absorbs this frequency of light very well leading to advantages which include: no numbing, less bleeding, shorter surgery time, less risk of infection, and less post-op swelling.

For procedures such as fillings, baby root canals, and sealants, Dr. Mann uses a hard tissue laser called the LightWalker. The LightWalker functions by searching for water molecules in a tooth. A tooth with a cavity is composed of even more water than a regular tooth. The laser micro-explodes the water molecules in the path of the laser beam; effectively removing the caries from the tooth. The micro-explosion is not seen or felt by the kids and requires no prior numbing with needles. Using a hard tissue laser provides true minimally invasive dental treatment and preserves more of the natural tooth structure leading to better long-term results.

The DIAGNOdent is a special little laser that lets Dr. Mann look at a tooth in a different way other than using a mirror and explorer or x-rays. It can help her catch breakdown of the tooth below the surface before it can be detected the other ways. The laser beams light into the tooth and a number is given, high numbers indicate that there may be decay starting below the surface. Early detection allows her to catch early stage decay that may be managed by simply brushing on a special medicine, such as silver nitrate or silver diamine fluoride (SDF), to arrest the decay. At future checkups, Dr. Mann can compare to make sure the number has stayed the same or improved, a way to scientifically measure that the decay is not progressing which often prevents further treatment for the tooth!

Loupes are special glasses Dr. Mann wears with small built-in binoculars that magnify everything much bigger. This view allows treatment to be performed on a more exact level and makes it easier to see things that could be missed without magnification.
