Dental Technology

Your enjoyable dental experience depends on your comfort and safety. The Garner Dental Group team utilize the latest technological advances in dental equipment and techniques to ensure your satisfaction with your visit and your continued excellent health.


The Biolase® water laser and the Biolase® gum laser are two examples of advanced technology that ensures effective, fast treatment for patients like you. Lasers are extremely gentle devices that promote faster healing with little-to-no post-treatment discomfort. You may experience the benefits of Biolase technology during treatments for gum disease, cavities, and biopsies, as well as during delicate procedures like cosmetic gum lifts. You will smile ― not just because your smile looks fantastic, but also because of the amazing comfort you experienced during your time with the Garner Dental Group team!

Digital Radiographs (X-rays)

Digital radiographs are a technological advancement that results in less exposure to radiation for our patients and an almost instantaneous picture for your dentists. You will appreciate a more comfortable visit, as well as quicker treatment.

Sleep Apnea/Snoring

Millions of people suffer from sleep apnea. In a patient with sleep apnea, the position of the structures of the mouth obstruct air flow during sleep, causing the patient to snore and, at times, to stop breathing for up to a minute or more at a time. The quality of sleep for both the patient and for their partner suffers tremendously, and if left untreated, sleep apnea can be very dangerous. Garner Dental Group can help patients with sleep apnea overcome their condition. After a sleep study is completed, treatment may include the use of a customized mouthpiece, which comfortably repositions the structures of the mouth, allowing for clear breathing and uninterrupted sleep. If you suffer from snoring, ask your Garner Dental Group team member about sleep apnea treatment today!



The DIAGNOdent® − a small portable laser unit − finds small cavities when they are first forming and when they can be easily missed by other detection methods. The benefit to you is that cavities can be stopped at their earliest stages. Like every area of medicine, early detection and treatment is always the best option for the patient.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera lets you see inside your mouth during both treatment planning and dental procedures. Our intraoral camera displays your teeth on a monitor, allowing your dentist 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 goals.


I am always pleased when I visit this dentist office. Everyone is kind and makes you feel as comfortable as possible.

As the most advanced technology and the only FDA approved laser designed especially for Laser Periodontal Therapy, PerioLase® treats the infection caused by periodontal disease, also known as gum disease or gingivitis. This treatment is minimally invasive, patient friendly, and convenient, requiring only two sessions of two hours each. Your recovery time is reduced to a 24-hour period with PerioLase rather than two-to-four weeks with traditional surgery.
