Three-Dimensional Dentistry!We are proud to work with a local company to provide 3-D cone beam CT digital imaging technology to our patients. Three-dimensional ultra cone beam images allow for greater precision than flat, two-dimensional X-ray images, with lower radiation exposure. Dr. Motwani’s ability to clearly see his patient’s anatomy permits better evaluations, leading to less invasive treatment, which is an advantage during implant placement and oral surgeries.
A Crown Restores a Damaged ToothDr. Motwani can rescue a tooth that has been broken or worn down to a point where a standard filling won’t bring it back to full functionality. By placing a crown, he can save and add strength to your damaged tooth. In addition, the top-of-the-line composite materials he uses to generate your crown will appear so natural, you’ll have difficulty telling it apart from a real tooth.
Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the TeamDr. Motwani wants your dental health decisions to be informed. To that end, he employs the use of a high-tech tool, the intra-oral camera.

Now, you can see for yourself what work needs to be achieved and which teeth are doing fine. You’ll love how this works!
