Crowns & Restorations in a Single Visit
The latest in CAD/CAM technology, CEREC allows us to make precise, long-lasting porcelain restorations in a single visit. In most cases, we can do your crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers in one visit – so you can say goodbye to wearing temporary crowns for weeks and weeks.
Over 250 scientific studies have confirmed the clinical safety of tried and tested CEREC tooth restorations. Worldwide, more than 30 million tooth restorations have been produced with CEREC.
Integrative Dental Solutions has been providing CEREC restorations for nearly 20 years. In fact, it was one of the first dental practices in Wisconsin to utilize this technology.
A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words
The latest technology in dentistry is giving patients an inside look at their teeth and a better understanding of the state of their oral health. The Intra-Oral Video camera allows our patients to see their teeth up close and in color using a pencil-sized wand with a tiny lens that is pointed to any area in the mouth. It’s an important tool that allows you to see what we see.
Once you see what amalgam (mercury) fillings to do your teeth, you’ll want them removed. And, if you think that’s bad, wait until you see what’s under them!
Air Abrasion “Drill Less” Dentistry
Treat Early-Stage Tooth Decay
Known as “drill-less” dentistry or air abrasion, this is an important technology to conservatively treat tooth decay when it is in its earliest stages and prepare teeth for restorations.
Traditionally, dentists used noisy dental drills to remove decay and prepare the teeth for fillings, but air abrasion has proven to be a noiseless, heat-less, minimally invasive alternative.
In our office, we generally use the air abrasion tool to clean out the grooves of teeth before we do our “Super Sealants.” Unfortunately, it can’t be used to clean out old metal restorations, but we do use it to create an ideal surface for the bonding process.
Laser therapy means state-of-the-art dentistry and modern patient care all in one. Used primarily for the sterilization of root canals and disinfection of diseased gum pockets, laser therapy is a valuable, non-chemical tool used to kill bacteria.
The state-of-the-art SiroLaser at Integrative Dental Solutions can be used in the treatment of gum disease, healing of mouth sores (such as canker sores), biopsies and shaping of gum tissue.
Patients also experience a better healing process and less postoperative pain.
LightScapel CO2 Laser
Our Carbon Dioxide Laser is used to perform minimally invasive soft tissue surgery, such as an adult tongue/lip tie release (frenectomy) and other cosmetic procedures.
The CO2 laser remains the best surgical tool to simultaneously cut soft tissue and stop bleeding from small blood vessels in its path. Both incisions and reduction in bleeding are achieved in a non-contact fashion, with just a focused beam of light.
Compared to conventional surgery, the LightScapel CO2 Laser allows us to perform a frenectomy and other soft-tissue cosmetic procedures fast and with great accuracy, minimal to no bleeding, less swelling and discomfort and reduced risk of infection.
The New Way To Fight Oral Infections
Dental ozone therapy is used to treat periodontal disease and oral infections using only oxygen and water. Ozone gas is a powerful antimicrobial agent that can kill bacteria on contact. It can penetrate into areas below the gum line, into the grooves of teeth and deep into the dentinal tubules and periodontal pockets, where antibiotic or disinfectant cannot reach.
Ozonated water acts as the perfect irrigation solution for periodontics, tooth extractions, dry sockets and post operative treatments to help reduce pain and inflammation.
And because ozone can harden compromised tooth structure, flooding a sensitive area or tooth with ozone gas can effectively eliminate sensitivity.

Advanced IAOMT Protocols
For Safe Mercury Removal
As important as it is to have the mercury and metals removed from your mouth, it is equally (or more) important to use proper removal protocols. Removing amalgam fillings can release mercury vapor into the air that can be absorbed into the body by inhaling or ingesting the vapors.
In our office, we protect our patients from additional mercury exposure by adhering to the guidelines set by the IAOMT:
- Keep the fillings cool by using cold water spray with copious amounts of water.
- Use a high volume evacuator tip near the tooth to safely evacuate mercury vapor.
- Provide an alternative air source and instruct patients not to breath through their mouth during treatment.
- Wash and vacuum away mercury alloy particles as soon as they are generated.
- Immediately change the patients’ protective wear and clean their face.
- Consider appropriate nutritional support and detoxification before, during and after amalgam removal.
- Install room air purifiers or ionizers and fans for everyone’s well being.
In addition to IAOMT amalgam removal protocols, we employ a high power vacuum system that vents all mercury vapors directly to the outside of the building. We also have all patients rinse with Bentonite, a chelating agent that binds any loose mercury particles.
