  • 3M True Definition Intraoral ScannerAdvanced Technology - 3M True Definition Scanner

    For making dental restorations such as crowns and bridges, Dr. Conkle and Dr. Garcia utilize the 3M™ True Definition Scanner, which is the most accurate intraoral scanner on the market. It quickly and easily captures an exact 3D replica of the inside of the mouth in precise detail. This technology ensures accuracy and efficiency all the way through the design and production process, from our office to the lab. The result is well-fitting restorations that the doctors can just “drop right in.”

  • Dental laser for gentle, precise treatmentAdvanced Technology - Laser Dentistry

    Lasers allow our doctors to provide gentle and precise treatment for a variety of procedures. The laser beam targets the exact area without affecting surrounding tissues, which results in faster post-treatment healing times with reduced swelling and without the need for suturing. Dr. Garcia and Dr. Conkle use lasers for desensitizing teeth and oral lesions, gum disease treatment, gum recontouring, the removal of mouth ulcers, and precise bone cutting.

    Our office is equipped with a state-of-the-art Gendex Orthoralix 9200 panoramic X-ray system. This machine allows for a two-dimensional X-ray examination that conveniently captures the entire curved mouth and jaw in a detailed image so the doctor and patient can easily see any problematic areas.

  • Intraoral camerasAdvanced Technology - Intraoral Cameras

    Every room at Saddleback Dentistry is equipped with an intraoral camera, a small, handheld camera that shows patients detailed digital images on a computer screen. This device is used during oral exams to quickly and clearly show patients any issues identified by the doctor.

  • Digital X-rays with 80% less radiation

    Digital X-rays use 80% less radiation than traditional film X-rays. The images are more accurate and can be produced much faster, allowing the doctors to carefully show you any issues that may be detected.

  • Ultrasonic scalers for gentle, effective cleaningAdvanced Technology

    Ultrasonic scalers use sound waves to break up bacterial deposits and dislodge plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth. They can be adjusted for patients with sensitive teeth. This tool helps our hygienists provide a more comfortable and effective cleaning experience for our patients.

  • Mobile CT scanning conveniently offered on-siteAdvanced Technology

    High-tech CT scans allow our doctors to perform successful surgical procedures by providing precise imaging of the patients’ bone depth and nerve and sinus locations. Saddleback patients have access to a state-of-the-art mobile CT scanner, which conveniently comes to our premises so that you don’t have to visit an off-site facility for your scan.

Apex locators for precise, successful root canals

The doctors use a cutting-edge apex locator for root canal procedures (endodontics). This electronic device is used to accurately determine the length of the space in the root canal, an essential part of the root canal procedure. This device helps Dr. Garcia and Dr. Conkle perform effective, successful root canals on our patients.
