"I had a wonderful experience at Dr. Johnson's office. The entire staff was very friendly and welcoming. Brittany was my dental hygienist, and she was outstanding. She took her time and cleaned my teeth thoroughly as well as explaining everything she was doing and why. This was the most gentle experience I've had and I will definitely be returning. Thanks for the amazing service."

Utilizing Cutting-Edge Technology

Over the years, we've improved the technology at our office to keep up with the latest developments in dentistry. These innovative diagnostic and treatment tools are designed to make our services more accurate and effective, and allow us to be more proactive and exact in our treatment recommendations. Our Columbia dental team has extensive training with our state-of-the-art equipment to help maximize their potential. Some of the technology we use includes:

  • CBCT Scanners: A CBCT or dental cone beam computed tomography scanner is a special type of technology that leverages numerous x-rays to create detailed 3D images of your smile. Some of the dental structures a CBCT scanner can image include your teeth, bone, nerve pathways, and soft tissue. A CBCT scanner can help us improve the efficiency of treatments like dental implant placement and extractions.
  • Laser-Guided Surgery: One of the pieces of equipment we use is laser-guided surgery. Employing precise laser technology, it allows us to track the optimal angle of approach and improves precision during surgical procedures.. Laser-guided surgery can be beneficial during dental implant placement.
  • E4D Machines: Using computer-aided design technology, our E4D machine allows us to create beautiful and durable crowns in a single dental appointment. Our E4D machine uses a block of ceramic color-matched to your smile to carefully mill out your crown while you wait in the comfort of our lobby. We can make any necessary adjustments during the same appointments, and you'll be able to leave our office with your new crown complete.
  • Intraoral Cameras: To get a more detailed view of your smile, our practice uses intraoral cameras. This technology uses a built-in light source to illuminate internal structure in your mouth while taking detailed photos of them for later analysis. It also allows you to have a clear view of what our dentist is seeing so that you have a better understanding of your oral health and why we recommend certain treatments.
