We only utilize instruments that enable us to provide the highest level of care in the least invasive way possible. Whether diagnosing, treating, or helping a patient heal, our technology is a big reason we’re able to accomplish so much using such a light touch.

Many patients feel overwhelmed by extensive dental trauma or tooth loss to the point of actively avoiding care. At Bionica Dental Wellness, we strongly believe that it’s never too late to regain the confidence and smile function you deserve. Dr. Holinbeck can work closely with patients to devise the ideal full mouth reconstruction plan, which involves an array of services that are specifically chosen to rebuild an attractive, durable dental structure where needed. Several kinds of transformative services can be included in full mouth reconstruction, including dental implants, dentures, crowns, fillings, and even cosmetic treatment options.
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) uses the growth factors from your own blood to facilitate healing after extractions and implant placement. This technique encourages the formation of new healthy tissue and helps to prevent infection.
An often overlooked part of oral health is the TMJ or temporomandibular joint. This is the set of hinges located beneath your ears that allow your lower jaw to move, basically enabling you to eat, speak, and laugh. Patients with persistent jaw pain, headaches/migraines, or earaches often have an inflamed, injured, or misaligned TMJ that is the root cause of these issues. Thankfully, Dr. Holinbeck is able to diagnose these kinds of problems and direct you to the appropriate treatment to rebalance the bite and relieve pain.
Our diode laser enables our team to perform various procedures on the gum tissue while avoiding the swelling, bleeding, and discomfort that’s common with more traditional treatments. It’s able to quickly eliminate harmful bacteria hidden deep beneath the gum line, plus it can even help remove infected tissue. It’s even able to do this without affecting any nearby healthy gum tissue, making it easy for patients to feel comfortable the entire time.
Intraoral cameras help our patients understand more about their dental care. The size of a small wand, this device is able to capture high-definition images from inside the mouth that we can display on a monitor right in the treatment room. Using them as visual-aids, Dr. Holinbeck can more easily explain the current state of a patient’s dental health, pointing out problem areas and discussing the benefits of potential treatments. This allows you to completely understand what is going on in your mouth, giving you complete control over your own path to wellness.
Dental X-rays used to be only captured using film, which means images took a long time to develop, and the process required toxic darkroom chemicals. And of course, they emitted a large amount of radiation. At Bionica Dental Wellness, we have invested in the latest digital radiography, which means the images are clearer, more detailed, and the radiation exposure is 90% LESS.
Rather than having a patient spend minutes biting into dental putty to create an impression of their teeth, we often are able to take a noncontact scan instead. A small, handheld device is used to take thousands of unique photo images of the teeth and gums in less than a minute, and patients can watch as they are all stitched together using software on a nearby monitor. The end result is an exhaustively detailed 3D digital model of the teeth, giving Dr. Holinbeck everything she needs to design a patient’s treatment.
When performing a more involved procedure like dental implant placement, precise planning is absolutely essential for success. In order to get as much information about a patient’s dental anatomy as possible, Dr. Holinbeck utilizes an ultra-low radiation 3D cone beam scanner. This tool is able to create a high-resolution 3D X-ray image of the teeth and jaw as well as reveal the locations of sensitive nerves located in and around the mouth. Using this kind of image, Dr. Holinbeck can fully personalize a procedure so she’s able to help a patient in the least invasive way possible.
