Invisalign (computerized orthodontics) is a method of straightening your teeth without the wires and brackets associated with braces. The system is virtually invisible and uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-made for your teeth. The aligners help move the teeth little by little, and are replaced almost every two weeks, by the next aligner in the series, until the final position has been achieved.

Dr. Hurwitz knows that a picture is worth a thousand words — especially in dentistry! Dr. Hurwitz uses small cameras right inside your mouth to take highly magnified digital photos of your teeth. These photos can be displayed on a computer screen for both patient and doctor, and are invaluable in diagnosing and recording dental problems. Intra-oral photos also enables patients to view what the dentist sees when their teeth are being evaluated by the dentist.
ViziLite Plus Cancer Screening
Dr. Hurwitz understands the importance of detecting oral cancer early. If caught early enough, this form of cancer is one of the most curable.
An annual ViziLite Plus exam, in combination with a regular visual examination, provides a comprehensive oral screening procedure for patients at increased risk for oral cancer. The ViziLite Plus exam is painless and fast, and could help save your life.
ViziLite Plus uses technology that has proven successful in identifying soft tissue abnormalities in other areas of the body. Click here to learn more about this new life saving technology or call Dr. Hurwitz for more information.

Locating hidden decay before it destroys tooth structure (from the inside out) is a major goal. Finding cavities beneath the hard surfaces is challenging because the disease process can start through microscopic defects in the hard surface can spread into the softer tooth structure beneath the surface.
Recently FDA approved, this amazing laser cavity finder instantly and accurately finds cavities in areas x-rays rarely see and the dental pick misses 76% of the time.
Diagnodent is a major breakthrough that allows us to monitor the areas below the hard surfaces. We can now locate hidden decay, and with treatment stop the spread of the disease before it destroys the tooth from within.
