Oxygen Ozone Therapy
Oxygen ozone (O3) is a tri-atomic oxygen particle that has been scientifically proven to help prevent and sterilize harmful bacteria found in the mouth as well as throughout water-based dental instruments. When combined with various dental treatments and procedures, oxygen ozone therapy can create a much cleaner environment and help achieve superior outcomes without the use of chemicals that may produce toxic side-effects. At the Center for Innovative Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics, the implementation of this advanced technique has revolutionized the standard and quality of care Dr. Roland is able to provide for you or your child both during and after treatment.
Organic Cleaning Agent
Teeth cleanings begin and end with the application of an all-organic cleaning agent. The refreshing formula is chemical-free and contains only all-natural ingredients. While safely whitening teeth and removing stains, this amazing product also supplies vital nutrients to the teeth, which keeps them strong. As it cleans, the formula simultaneously regulates pH levels in the mouth to reduce damaging acidity.
Not long ago, one of the standard treatments for cavities and tooth decay involved amalgam fillings. Amalgam is a material that contains mercury, a toxic mineral that gave the teeth a metal appearance after treatment. Over the years, it has been found that even small levels of mercury can raise risks to your health. There was also an extensive filtration process required before dental offices could even dispose of mercury from their practices. The good news is, filling material made of strong composite or porcelain is now becoming the norm in dental practices all across America, and The Center for Innovative Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics uses materials that are completely mercury-free in all of our procedures. These composite materials are not only safer alternatives to amalgam, they also have a cosmetic benefit in that they look more like natural teeth enamel – hence the name, tooth-colored fillings. Therefore, when you have a filling with composite materials, it’s virtually impossible to detect. All of our composite restoration materials are BPA free.
Alternatives to Sedation
Stressed about your next dental visit? For patients who find dental procedures to be anxious or uncomfortable we employ an all-natural technology which remediates stress at the midbrain level. Unlike traditional sedation dentistry, there are no side effects, no risks, and no recuperative time with natural sedation dentistry. This system blocks the effects of adrenaline and sensory stimuli to interrupt the stress response. This fosters a natural state of relaxation, leading to a refreshing and rejuvenating dental experience.
Laser therapy cleanings
Our advanced laser techniques can reduce the amount of harmful bacteria in the mouth, not only providing more protection for your teeth and gums, but also reducing the chance that oral bacteria can have on your overall health. Laser therapy can be part of a routine cleaning here at The Center for Innovative Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics.

Herbal teeth cleaning products
Herbal teeth cleaning products are typically organic-based, mixing essential oils and alcohol-free materials to create effective cleaning solutions that work to keep the teeth healthy and reduce bacteria in the mouth.
Dye free and gluten free polishing paste
During your routine dental cleanings here at our practice, you will be treated to dye-free and gluten-free polishing paste, which can provide a healthy new sheen to your teeth. Many patients also comment on its great taste!
Natural oral hygiene products containing no chemicals or dyes
We use natural oral hygiene products for all of our patients. These products contain no harmful chemicals or dyes that may affect the health or appearance of your teeth.
Digital x-rays (radiation)
With digital x-ray technology, your exposure to radiation can be reduced by up to 90%. Replacing traditional x-ray film with digital techniques also allows our practice to eliminate the need for developing chemicals which may add toxins to the environment.
At The Center for Innovative Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics, we rely on state-of-the-art computers and secure software to schedule appointments, keep track of your dental treatment processes, and maintain your dental records. This significantly reduces the use of paper and typically makes the process easier and less time-consuming for patients.
Energy saving products and lights
We invest in lighting and products that have proven to reduce the energy consumption of older models without sacrificing quality.
Non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment
In cases where alternatives to invasive methods are viable options for good results, Dr. Roland aims to give our patients the most minimally- or non-invasive treatment. Her goal is to perform procedures that effectively restore or renew the teeth while maintaining as much of the natural tooth structure as possible and providing a good balance between joints, muscles, and teeth.
Early short term orthodontic treatment for proper bone growth
For many patients, early orthodontic treatment helps with proper bone growth and can dramatically reduce problems with misaligned teeth and bite issues later in life. Dr. Roland offers a number of options, such as gentle wires and brackets, that can decrease the risks of developing significant orthodontic issues that may require major treatment down the road.
