Innovators in dental science are continually developing ways to make your visits more efficient, more
comfortable, and even better for the world around us. The latest enhancements allow for earlier,
less-invasive treatments and far more precision, which means quicker healing times for dental procedures.
The results are amazing!
75% Reduction in Radiation
Dr. Rykard employs the next step in X-ray technology – digital X-rays. An image is taken of your mouth
using a sensor and downloaded straight into our computer. He can immediately begin assessing the level
of your dental health. Our panoramic dental X-ray unit can capture your entire jaw and mouth structure
in one image. The original data can be readily stored and later overlaid with more recent information to
highlight treatment progress and overall changes to your dental health. Not only does this technique
permit us more options than conventional X-rays, but it does it all while subjecting you to 75% less
radiation than traditional captures.
Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the Team
You need the ability to make informed decisions in order to improve your dental health. Dr. Rykard has
simplified the process by providing you with the benefit of the intra-oral camera. This high-tech device
is a small-scale video camera that displays a close-up picture of the interior of your mouth. You can now
see for yourself what work needs to be accomplished and which teeth are at the peak of health. You’ll love
how easily this makes you an active participant in every dental decision.
We are excited to be one of the initial practices in our area to utilize a 3-D cone beam CT digital imaging
machine. This incredible three-dimensional X-ray allows for precision unobtainable with traditional flat X-rays,
takes much less time, and requires less radiation exposure. Three-dimensional X-rays allow Dr. Rykard the benefit
of diagnosing his patients and assessing their treatment options while clearly seeing their anatomy as it exists.
This increases the level of precision for all dental treatments, particularly implant placements and any oral surgeries.

scalpels or incisions can now be accomplished with a laser. Less-invasive treatment equals superior results and speedier
healing. Dr. Rykard can cosmetically alter uneven gummy smile lines, clean and re-contour aggravated tissue around crowns,
arrest gum disease, and heal painful canker sores and mouth ulcers with instant relief! You won’t believe these results!
