Below are some of the important methods we use to ensure our patients' safety and comfort.


Intraoral Camera

Want to see what the dentist sees? With the Intraoral camera you can! This is a tiny digital camera that fits comfortably in your mouth and allows Dr. Farrell to show you an enlarged image on a computer screen. The tip of the wand (where the camera is located) is covered with a disposable plastic sheath that keeps the procedure sterile and comfortable. This not only allows you to see what is happening in your mouth, it also documents the findings by uploading the information to a computer.

Digital X-rays

A digital x-ray machine uses at least fifty percent less radiation than conventional x-rays. Not only is the digital image able to be magnified 300 times its normal size to aid in diagnosis, the images also appear instantly on the computer monitor allowing Dr. Farrell to immediately review your x-rays and discuss your treatment options. Dental x-rays are an invaluable aid in the diagnosing, treating and maintaining of optimal dental health.

Patient Comfort

Dental Sedation

Dental sedation can be used when a patient suffers from dental anxiety or dental phobia. Depending on the extent of the anxiety or phobia, varying degrees of dental sedation can be utilized, including conscious sedation with sedatives. These sedation techniques enable patients, who might otherwise avoid the dentist, to receive dental treatment necessary for a healthy smile.

Dr. Farrell offers oral sedation as a way of treating his anxious patients more comfortably. Sedation allows more dentistry to be completed in single visit instead of requiring the patient to return again and again. Sedation dentistry may be the answer for you – call Dr. Farrell for your free consultation.

Isolite System

With the innovative Isolite Dryfield Illuminator System, Dr. Farrell reduces your time spent in the dental chair by 20 to 30 percent and increases your level of comfort tremendously. The Isolite System illuminates the inside of your mouth delivering unprecedented visibility, access and moisture control. Not only is the unique mouthpiece soft and flexible which allows comfortable retraction of your cheek, but it also has a rest area for your jaw making the procedure more enjoyable. The system provides continuous suction of debris and oral fluids and eliminates the use of cotton rolls and rubber dams. Dr. Farrell and his staff realize a patient's comfort is of utmost importance! That is exactly why he uses the Isolite System. Come in and experience the difference!
