Dental Technology

Dental Technology

The field of dentistry is always growing and changing as new technologies and new equipment become available. As new discoveries are made, our equipment becomes faster and more exacting so that you get the best treatment possible. 

Dentistry has always relied on technology, and there are treatments available today that weren’t just a few years ago. Trillium Oral Surgery and Implantology is on the cutting edge of new dental technologies to give you the best, most up-to-date services possible in any of our three offices. 

We want every patient to get the best treatment and to stay comfortable throughout it. The latest in dental technology helps us to accomplish these goals. New dental technologies allow patients to heal faster and be more comfortable during and after their surgeries. These are just two benefits of using the latest high-tech dental procedures to treat patients. 

High-Tech Additions to Our Offices

With the help of science, dental procedures today can help patients with a wide range of issues that need to be fixed. PRP treatments are just one of the kinds of technology we use for the best patient outcome possible. With this therapy, patients will heal more quickly after a procedure such as a tooth extraction. PRP treatment takes blood from the patient and uses it to make a serum that helps boost the body’s healing ability and makes the patient more comfortable. 

CBCT and digital X-rays allow the doctor to see everything in your mouth in detail. CBCT scans are digital X-rays that create 3D images of the inside of your mouth that are high-quality and incredibly helpful to the doctor. These images are greatly helpful to plan your treatments by seeing the details and scope of your dental problems. 

Other Cutting Edge Tools for a Better Outcome

We use an iTero scanner to get great, color images of the inside of your mouth. This digital scanner can make it easier to streamline the procedure needed and to allow them to get done faster. It uses the latest optical technology to digitally capture the structures inside the mouth. The scanner itself is small and handheld. The wand is easy for patients and captures the images in little time. 

Our CO2 lasers are used in several dental procedures to treat oral problems. It is used to perform laser surgery to create incisions, perform excisions, vaporize certain diseased soft tissue, and for ablation. It’s a high-tech way to have a high degree of precision. 

The X-nav is a way to add a whole new dimension of accuracy to the dental implant process. It allows for real-time surgical movements, resulting in incredibly accurate techniques. It’s a great way to get an implant faster and with the best accuracy available today. 

The many new dental technologies have made it possible for patients to experience great outcomes. We use these technologies because they are proven, safe, and offer an array of assistance for the surgeries our patients need. We stay up-to-date with the latest technologies to give our patients the best care possible.

What Our Patients Really Think About Us

The doctors and staff at this practice are second to none! As a dental specialist myself, I have a “behind the scenes” look at many practices and I would never send my family anywhere else.


“Dr. Cannavo pulled an infected wisdom tooth for me the very next day after seeing me. He did an excellent job, and everything went very smoothly. 10/10 would let him remove another tooth from my head.”


I took my daughter in for a consultation with regards to a Class 3 malocclusion. Dr. Jeff treated us with empathy & professionalism. He provided two different treatment plans for my daughter and I to review.


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Betts for many years and always he takes care of me with empathy and no pain and a sense of urgency I wouldn’t go to anybody else. You get treated like you were part of his family.
