Being one of Lincoln’s newest general family dental practices, in a brand new office space -with a setting and view that will simply wow you, we are proud to offer the most up to date, state-of-the-art dental technology the profession offers. Providing premier care is of utmost importance to our practice and this is significantly enhanced with the corresponding technology to aid in the evaluation, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of the conditions of the oral cavity.

Ridge Pointe Dental offers one of the most highly acclaimed dental software and digital radiography systems available in the practice of dentistry. Dr. Hohlen and his staff utilize digital radiographic imagery via intraoral digital radiographic sensors and also a digital panoramic radiograph. Digital radiography provides instantaneous images that Dr. Hohlen will review with you in detail on one of our ceiling mounted 26” flat screens. These screens also offer you the opportunity to enjoy cable television during your entire office visit. Ridge Pointe Dental takes your care to a whole new level!

Another unique option we offer at our office is intraoral digital photography. Intraoral pictures allow Dr. Hohlen to take detailed digital pictures of your teeth which then become part of your record. Patients find these photographs extremely helpful in allowing visualization of conditions associated with the teeth and oral cavity. Documentation and monitoring of certain pits, grooves, and crack lines in the teeth along with possible tissue growths or areas of concern are all addressed by our award winning digital intraoral camera.

All patients of our office have the opportunity to enjoy a professional dental cleaning via the use of an ultrasonic scaler which utilizes ultrasonic vibration with a mist of water to remove plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth. If you have a tendency to buildup hard tartar on your teeth then you may particularly enjoy this method of cleaning. The ultrasonic scaler actually vibrates the plaque and tartar from the teeth, even below the gum tissues. This method of cleaning is found to be enjoyable by most patients and often requested because it leaves their teeth feeling cleaner than ever before. Finally you can say goodbye to heavy stains from coffee, tea, nicotine and other causes! Ultrasonic scalers are also imperative in the treatment of gingivitis (gums that bleed easily) and periodontal disease. Periodontal disease requires a special cleaning called scaling and root planing. Ultrasonic scalers aid in getting down under the gums and removing the hidden debris and calculus (tartar buildup) that is causing the puffy and bleeding gums, bone loss, and bad oral odors and breath. Whether you need a routine cleaning and checkup or special deep cleaning, Ridge Pointe Dental’s ultrasonic scalers will make your teeth and gums look and feel healthy!

We are also very excited to announce that as part of your routine cleaning and examination we will utilize DIAGNOdent laser fluorescence detection for cavities. Visualization and radiographic evaluation are significantly more accurate with the aid of the DIAGNOdent laser and we offer it at no additional cost to our new patients and also patients that choose to establish Ridge Pointe Dental as their exclusive dental home.

One other piece of technology Dr. Hohlen offers his patients at Ridge Pointe Dental is the opportunity to learn from “Guru” patient educational software. This unique educational system allows for you to be fully informed of your oral and dental conditions, as well as treatment needs and options via the use of short videos. Dr. Hohlen and the staff at Ridge Pointe Dental are committed to patient education and “Guru” will take your experience and understanding in the dental office to an all new high. You are entitled to know and understand all of your dental conditions and needs, and through “Guru”, Ridge Pointe Dental will take you there!
