Advanced Dental Technology in Grand Haven, MI

Safer, Faster, More Effective Care

Dr. Leitner uses the latest technology to provide you with the best possible care. Using the right equipment reduces the amount of time you have to spend in the dental chair, making your treatment more efficient and shortening your recovery time.

What You’ll Find in Every Examination Room

  • Digital X-Rays: Digital x-rays allow us to spot early signs of decay and other issues that aren’t visible to the naked eye. Though this may seem like a small part of your dental visit, it helps us provide proactive care, treating problems as quickly and effectively as possible.
  • LCD Monitors: You can kick back and relax during your visit because we have tv screens on our ceilings. Just tell us what channel you’d like to watch and you can enjoy your favorite show while we work on your smile.
  • Surgical Microscopes: Our office was the first in Western Michigan to feature surgical microscopes. Dr. Leitner uses our microscopes to view images that are magnified 20 times, so he can see areas of decay, fissures, and damaged teeth much more clearly. This is invaluable for efficient treatment planning.

Tekscan® Bite Analysis

We were also the first dental office in Western Michigan to use the Tekscan bite analysis system. This innovative technology detects issues and inconsistencies in your bite. The information we get from Tekscan is crucial for treating TMJ Disorder and other bite-related issues.

PerioLase®/LANAP Laser Technology

Dr. Leitner’s office was one of the first in the area to adopt laser technology. We use the PerioLase system to remove damaged gum tissue without the need for cutting and stitching. Laser dentistry also has the potential to regenerate bone tissue around the tooth root.

Joint Vibration Analysis

Issues with your temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, can be diagnosed more easily using joint vibration analysis (JVA). This system identifies signs of a TMJ Disorder (TMD) and indicates the severity of the situation.

The Canary System® for Early Cavity Detection

Dr. Leitner’s office relies on the Canary System to detect areas of decay that are too small to show up on x-rays. The Canary System uses lasers to discover cavities early so we can provide easy and effective treatment.

The Right Tools for the Job

Dr. Leitner has the right technology and experience to keep your smile healthy and shining bright. We’ll fully diagnose your issues so we can treat them quickly in the most cost-effective manner. That’s why we invest in state-of-the-art technology.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the latest technology in dentistry?

Dentistry has significantly progressed, and continues to evolve over the years. This means the latest technology involving treatment has advanced, too. Some of the latest technology in dentistry includes computer-assisted technology, digital X-rays, 3D printing, laser dentistry, and more! Here, at our Grand Haven office, we’ve continued to stay up-to-date with these trends in order to provide our patients with the best possible care dentistry has to offer.

How are digital X-rays improving dental treatment?

Digital imaging is an outstanding improvement in dentistry that offers features to enhance the viewing experience, including any problem areas. Digital X-rays use low levels of radiation and are easily displayed instantly on a computer screen for both our patients and doctors to see. X-rays are important for diagnosing dental decay, failing crowns and fillings, planning dental implant placement, and more.

Is laser dentistry safe?

Yes! Laser dentistry is a completely safe and effective technique used in dentistry today. Lasers are less invasive than traditional drills and dental tools. They also offer a faster procedure time and recovery period than ever before. Laser technology is approved by the ADA, and our techniques will restore the health of your smile the right way.
