Equipment

We constantly strive to provide our patients with the newest surgical care available. Our investment in advanced technology means a long-term investment in your future. State-of-the-art technology invites informed decision-making and enables patients to make wise choices concerning their health. Dr. Chisdak orders the latest medical technology for your benefit.

Digital Radiography

Digital Radiography is a form of computerized radiography that uses a standard x-ray generator as its radiation source. An intra-oral sensor that is placed in the mouth collects the image. Color capabilities show our patients more meaningful pictures than the standard format. “Zoom” capabilities allow our patients to view localized areas for a better understanding of their diagnosis. Digital radiography reduces radiation exposure 80-90%. Images are instant and can be shared with your other medical and dental providers immediately through e-mail.

CT Imaging

CT Imaging is a specialized x-ray, also known as Computed Axial Tomography Scan, has provided the Gallatin Valley with the most comprehensive x-ray images available. CT scan allows physicians the ability to view anatomical structures in three dimensions. With this technology the surgeon has the ability to create a treatment plan for some of the most difficult surgical situations.

Computers

We are proud to be a paperless office. Our computer system is designed to efficiently manage the most complex medical and dental information. We protect your information while making sure your records are accessible and can be easily shared with other dental professionals and insurance agencies as needed.

Implants

We offer a variety of implant systems and can perform multiple procedures on the same day. Dr. Chisdak will be happy to evaluate your dental needs and work closely with your general dentist to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. Local Anesthesia: is anesthesia that is injected into the gum tissue at or near the area to be treated, producing a numbing effect that wears off after the procedure. The use of local anesthesia allows patients to experience dental treatment comfortably.

IV Sedation

Many patients ask if it is necessary to be sedated for their surgical procedure. After discussing your specific surgery, health history and risks, the decision to be sedated may simply be a question of your personal preference. IV sedation uses a combination of medications, which allows for lower doses of the medications and the ability to give varied doses of each depending on your specific needs. During IV sedation, medications will be administered and adjusted over the course of your procedure to keep you comfortable at all times.

*Dr. Chisdak is a licensed medical doctor (M.D.). Our doctors and registered nurse are trained in advanced Cardiac Life Support. All of our clinical staff members, including assistants, are routinely trained on emergency medical procedures and CPR. During IV sedation all patients are monitored in a similar fashion to a hospital operating room.
