Advanced Dental Technology



Award Winning i-CAT® Low Dose 3D Cone Beam


At Yarmosky Pediatric Dentistry we are proud to offer our patients the best technology available for imaging that allows us to gather precise information in order to plan the most effective and least invasive treatment for your child’s dental, orthodontic and airway health.



i-CAT® Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging System

  • Plans each case with Greater Accuracy & Better Clinical Tools than possible with traditional 2D radiographs.
  • Use the lower dose 4.8 second scan to capture dramatically more information in detailed 3D images while managing radiation dose.
  • Captures Orthodontic Initial Records and Airway Assessments in a Single Scan in less than 5 seconds.
  • The single scan allows us to create 3D virtual models, ELIMINATING the need for uncomfortable orthodontic impressions.
  • Captures precisely accurate 3D views to analyze teeth, roots, TMJ, airway, and sinuses without magnification or distortion.
  • Provides a soft tissue scan and airway analysis that shows us if your child’s airway is “open” or if it is restricted and can detect blockages and obstructions in the upper respiratory tract (nasal cavity and pharynx) that can contribute to poor airway function, health and sleep apnea.

LightScalpel® CO2 laser


LightScapel® CO2 Laser

At Yarmosky Pediatric Dentistry, we are proud to offer you the best in soft tissue laser technology by using the LightScalpel® CO2 laser.


What is a LightScapel® CO2 Laser?
The LightScalpel® CO2 laser is a device that produces a concentrated beam of light. The highly focused CO2 laser beam vaporizes, cleanly and precisely, while sealing blood vessels at the same time. Years of experience in medicine and oral surgery went into the design of the LightScalpel® laser, which was made to provide superior care for patients.

What is Laser Surgery and how does it work?
Traditional surgery with a scalpel or scissors can bruise or crush tissue. When we use the LightScalpel® CO2 laser, only an intense beam of laser light interacts with the tissue. There is no mechanical trauma to the tissue and the coagulation zone is very narrow (as little as 50 microns – almost the width of a human hair).

The CO2 laser has the unique ability to vaporize or ‘erase’ tissue. The CO2 laser can be used to make incisions, as well as to remove unhealthy tissue. Our laser is so precise that it can selectively remove only a few cells at a time, if needed. At the same time, it is powerful enough to de-bulk the largest of tumors.

Are LightScalpel® Laser procedures safe?
When used according to accepted guidelines by a trained practitioner, the laser is as safe as other instruments. You will wear special protective glasses, just as you would when you protect your eyes from sun exposure.

Is Laser Surgery appropriate for my child?
A laser can perform a wide variety of dental soft-tissue surgical procedures comfortably and with very little post-operative discomfort. Please see the links below to read more information and see articles related to the use and benefits of the CO2 laser.

Additional Technology


Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays.  The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment.  Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film.  Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care.  It’s also a very green technology.  By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste it is better for you and the environment!
Oral cancer affects thousands of Americans yearly. We use the latest technology to detect changes in oral tissue consistencies and/or lesions. A UV light is shined into the mouth to detect unhealthy tissue. Healthy tissue looks lighter under the light while spots of bad tissue appear dark. With early detection, cancer may be caught before it has time to spread, potentially saving lives.
Using Electronic Medical Records our practice is able to quickly and accurately access patient information in order to provide the utmost in patient care.  This helps to ensure patient confidentiality as well as reduce the need for paper.  Using a digital format allows for quick access to your information when needed for insurance records yet provides a secure filing system.
These television monitors are found next to every patient chair. Patients can watch a movie or TV show. Patients can also view their dental x-rays when speaking to the doctor about the findings for a better understanding of their oral health.
Our office offers free Wi-Fi for our patients use while visiting our office.
