Our Office & Technology
Invested in Patient Comfort and Advanced Dental Technology
he team at Glaser Dental will skillfully and affordably provide dental care in a friendly, comfortable space with an emphasis on prevention and patient education. A big part of our process is having the most advanced dental technology, like a digital scanner and digital records, as part of your care.
We also understand that, for many, a trip to the dentist can be a source of anxiety. With this in mind, we have a variety of tools available to help put you at ease including massaging chairs, more rooms for private patient consultations, movies, music, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and doTERRA Essential oils.
Sedation dentistry techniques enable patients who might otherwise avoid the dentist, to receive dental treatment necessary for a healthy smile. Nitrous oxide is a colorless, slightly sweet gas that is used during dental treatment for relaxation and anxiety relief. When inhaled, it can induce feelings of euphoria and sedation. It also can produce sensations of drowsiness, warmth and tingling in the hands, feet and/or about the mouth. In the dental setting, it will not induce unconsciousness. You will be able to swallow, talk and cough as needed.
The sedation is inhaled through a mask that allows you to breathe in the medication and induces a state of relaxation. Local anesthetic will be administered in conjunction with nitrous oxide to eliminate pain for most adults. Nitrous oxide takes effect in a few minutes, is relatively mild and the effects go away in about five minutes. This technique can be used for any procedure and it is okay to drive afterwards. Just let your hygienist know if you think it will make you more comfortable.
doTERRA essential oils
doTERRA essential oils used in our office are also in many progressive hospitals and clinics around the world. Vanderbilt University Hospital started the trend and if you are interested in discovering more this link sheds light on the legitimacy, safety and benefits of essential oils in healthcare.
Preventative Dental Technology
laser Dental’s commitment to providing the best in patient care and comfort is exemplified in our investment in the most advanced dental technology available today.
3D Digital Scanner –
3 Shape TRIOS
If you dread traditional impressions because of a gag-reflex, our digital scanner will improve your experience and comfort. Our TRIOS scanner allows Dr. Glaser to start, stop, and restart scanning anytime and at the same position automatically. This means you can take a break to relax and Dr. Glaser can restart when you are ready.
In addition, our digital intraoral scanner provides goop-free, 3D color impressions. Scanning is fast and easy – and the high-quality digital impressions are taken in lifelike colors to improve diagnostics and Dr. Glaser’s communication with you. Digital impressioning is accurate and captures implant position and angulation precisely without distortion. This accuracy means better results for ensuing treatment.
And while a picture is worth a 1,000 words, this superior scanning technology goes well beyond being a camera. Once your digital scans are captured the additional power of 3 Shape TRIOS is the industry-leading analysis and treatment planning software. The software allows Dr. Glaser to: diagnose and simulate treatment plans, automatically capture your occlusion (your bite), share your case digitally with labs for the most accurate results, and digitally archive your case.
Additional benefits of our digital scanner include:
Realistic color intraoral photos
Seamless case sharing with labs
Prescription-strength fluoride application
Advanced, state of the art digital imaging systems allow for high resolution x-rays of your teeth. This allows Dr. Glaser to best care for your dental health. Secure digital information allows for easy communication and specialty care when required and lets you and the doctor easily discuss changes to your teeth.
Glaser Dental uses X-ray equipment manufactured by Dexis. Dexis provides imaging tools that allow Dr. Tyler to select the right image for the patient’s specific needs and the radiation safety principle of ALARA (As Low as Reasonably Achievable). Our Dexis dental imaging equipment reduces soft X-rays which are most harmful to sensitive tissues and can reduce the radiation for an intra-oral image by more than 50% compared to film X-rays.
The Dexis digital sensor also provides clinical benefits while supporting the ALARA principles on the use of radiography:
- X-rays are an established and essential part of every dental clinical practice
- Intra-oral X-rays provide valuable information that allows Dr. Tyler to better evaluate what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums
- Intra-oral X-rays assist in precise diagnosis and treatment plans with the goal of better clinical outcomes
- It is Dr. Tyler that will make a decision, based on clinical evaluation, as to whether intra-oral X-rays are warranted and consistent with ALARA principles
Digital Patient Software
At Glaser Dental, we understand how valuable your time is. It’s why we invested in patient communication software that provides helpful electronic appointment reminders, recall notices, open appointment notifications, and postoperative communications that can be customized to meet your delivery preferences. It keeps helps keep everyone on the same digital page, and that’s a good thing with all the demands on your time.
Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
Electronic health records have been shown to improve care quality and patient safety by providing accurate, up-to-date, and complete information to your care providers for decision making. Our system’s ability to capture detailed clinical information give Dr. Tyler important tools for diagnosing and educating patients. It also enables Dr. Glaser to have quick access to patient records for more coordinated, efficient care when working with labs or consulting with other doctors involved in your care.
Additionally, our software makes it easier to access insurance information and file claims on your behalf in a prompt and efficient manner.
Other benefits include:
Diode Laser – Providing Minimally Invasive Care
Diode lasers are primarily used to cut soft tissue. The results are more accurate and less traumatic (less bleeding) than procedures with traditional tools such as drills and scalpels. Our laser brings precision and more comfort due to efficient clinical cutting with less thermal damage. We can use these lasers in many dental procedures such as gingival contouring, removal of fibrous tissue, or treating canker sores. Our diode laser is also used to treat minor periodontal disease cases.
When it is on a low power setting, the laser can be used during cleanings to kill disease-causing bacteria. There is no need for sutures which also improves healing time.
Additional benefits of our digital scanner include:
Help maintain the health of the tissue around the teeth.
Patients experience less bleeding
Faster healing times
TMJ Doppler Ultrasound
Dr. Glaser has found that the use of the Doppler Ultrasound is an important step in the process of diagnosing and treating TMJ. The patient will be asked to move his or her jaw in several directions, allowing Dr. Glaser to detect any abnormal clicking or grating sounds coming from the joint in motion. By listening carefully with the Doppler, Dr. Glaser can determine the condition of the jaw joint and whether there are any problems such as perforations, joint space adhesions or inflammation in surrounding tissue. The information Dr. Glaser receives from the Doppler is extremely reliable.

Like all technology, dental technology is getting faster, better, and more precise. While intraoral cameras have been around since the 1980’s new innovations and technologically advanced products have revolutionized the dental intraoral camera.
Best described as an effective tool used by Dr. Glaser to communicate and educate his patients, intraoral cameras are essentially tiny digital cameras that enable dentists to capture images of difficult-to-reach areas in the mouth. They can easily go inside the mouth and capture digital images inside it. They are powerful tools to effectively find out teeth problems hidden even in the most troublesome areas of the mouth.
The camera looks like a writing pen that allows Dr. Glaser to see detailed, enlarged images of teeth surfaces, gum conditions, and other minute detail about tissues, cavities, etc. that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
