We live in the greatest age of dentistry. Advancements and understanding are increasing at a staggering pace and staying up to date with these changes is critical to the care of our patients. Evidence continues to mount linking the state of the mouth to the overall condition of the body. Providing patients with knowledge and dental care that can change and improve their quality of life is our ultimate goal.
We constantly strive to give our patients the finest dental care possible, and we understand that our investment in advanced technology leads to better dental outcomes. We use a variety of dental technologies described below.
Cone Beam CT Scan
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Corbyn VanBrunt, DDS uses this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.

Dexis Digital X-rays
X-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Detecting issues with x-rays before they become problematic can save you money in the long run. At Smiles of Tulsa, we use digital x-rays, which have several advantages over traditional film based x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to take x-rays with 1/5th the radiation that you would receive from traditional dental x-rays. The worry of exposure to excess radiation is eliminated.
Large on-screen x-rays make patient communication more effective. The immediate observation of the images on the screen allows us to discuss your dental health quickly and accurately. Learn more about Digital Radiography
PlanMeca Emerald 3D Scanning
At Smiles of Tulsa, we utilize the 3D imaging to better understand the anatomy of your mouth, which is essential before we perform any type of corrective procedure. By using this state-of-the-art technology, Corbyn VanBrunt, DDS will be better prepared to accurately diagnose potential issues and develop the best possible treatment program for you.

An intra-oral camera is a small, toothbrush shaped/sized camera. We frequently use intraoral cameras to show patients issues that have arisen within their mouth, since it is not easy to view much of your own mouth using a mirror. With the camera we are able to show you in high detail what is going on in your mouth. Learn more about Intraoral Cameras
Picasso AMD Soft Tissue Laser
Lasers have been used in partnership with traditional dental instruments since 1990. We are excited to provide for our patients an array of laser treatments designed to speed up recovery time, improve accuracy and kill bacteria more effectively than non-laser treatments.
