Our Advanced Services & Technologies
Dentistry is evolving faster than ever, and long gone are the days where your dentist only had the ability to fix and prevent cavities. Thanks to the kind of technology you’ll find at Geach Dental, we’re able to address an even wider array of problems in less time while keeping our patients more comfortable. Today, we’re able to relieve chronic jaw/head pain, better explain your care, and create a better overall patient experience thanks to our state-of-the-art instruments. Read on to learn more.
Your TMJ is actually the name for those small joints that connect your lower jaw to the rest of your head, and like other joints in the body, it can develop problems due to strain, injury, and arthritis. Issues with the TMJ can lead to chronic jaw pain, frequent headaches, and even neck and shoulder pain. Dr. Geach can help diagnose and treat these kinds of issues right in our office.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Do you always feel tired no matter how much you sleep, or does your partner constantly complain about your snoring? Both of these are distinct signs of a serious sleep disorder called sleep apnea, and Dr. Geach can help you overcome it with a simple, custom-made oral appliance. You’ll just wear it to bed, and it will gently shift your jaw to keep your airway open so you can get the deep, restful sleep you need to feel awake and energized the next day (in addition to helping you not snore!).
Does going to the dentist make you feel nervous? Ready to take the stress out of your dental care? Dr. Geach can prescribe you a mild sedative to take about an hour before your scheduled appointment, so that by the time you reach our office, you will be physically and mentally relaxed. You’ll remain awake for the entire appointment, but time will fly by very quickly, and you’ll likely have little memory of it afterward.

Our Nikon intraoral cameras will help you literally gain a whole new perspective on your smile! This camera can capture close-up, high-resolution images of your teeth and gums that we can quickly display on a large chairside monitor. These will help our team catch small problems even faster, plus we can use them to better explain why you might need a specific treatment. You’ll be amazed by how much you learn about your smile simply by seeing it from your dentist’s point of view!
Dental offices around the world use X-rays every day to find problems hidden beneath the surface of the teeth and gums, and thanks to digital X-rays, this tool is now faster and safer than ever. With them, we can create crystal-clear images almost instantly, they don’t require toxic chemicals to be developed, and they also emit up to 80% LESS radiation compared to a traditional dental X-ray. We can even zoom, rotate, and color-code the images so you can go over and easily understand them with your dentist.
