Dental Technology

We’re a friendly, small-town practice here at Kocian Family Dentistry, but we use state-of-the-art dental technology. We want to serve our Gretna-area patients as well as possible. That’s why we buy and train with the latest devices. These devices can:

  • Keep you very comfortable during scans and exams.
  • Help you heal up more quickly after certain procedures.
  • Improve diagnoses and lead us to the right treatments for you.
  • Show you your teeth, gums, and bones better than ever.
  • Keep you safe during long services.
  • Get you back to your day faster.

Of course, excellent technology doesn’t ask anything of you. You can sit and relax while we use amazing advances in science to care for your teeth.

Below are some examples of these technologies.

Dental Lasers

Lasers use concentrated light to quickly and comfortably:

  • Get rid of gum infections.
  • Change the shape of a gum line, if needed.
  • Help new, healthy gum tissue grow.
  • Fight and destroy oral ulcers.
  • Release a child’s tongue or lip that can’t move well. This is a quick surgery that the child hardly even notices because it’s almost totally pain-free.

Dental lasers help us offer the most comfortable, effective procedures possible right here in Gretna!


The NOMAD is a new way to take x-rays. We have hand-held units that are easy to move. We can take x-rays of your teeth and jaws very quickly with them.

You’ll be able to see the images on a computer screen right away, and we’ll put the device away in no time. The NOMAD uses a very small amount of radiation, which is safe for family members of all ages.

CBCT Technology

Our CBCT scanner can quickly make a 3-D model of your teeth, jaws, throat, and so on. Your dentist will be able to plan services more accurately with the 3-D model produced. This will get you ready for successful procedures, such as dental implants and many others.

This will be easy for you. All you do is stand while it moves around you. It won’t touch any part of you, but it’ll produce amazing results!

Many practices don’t have this amazing technology available in their offices. This is just one more reason to choose our office for your procedures!

Computers & TVs in All Operatories

To make your procedures and surgeries very safe, we have computers and TVs set up in every work area. During services, they show our staff your:

  • X-rays.
  • 3-D scans.
  • Dental photos.
  • Health history and other data.

These displays keep us organized and on-task while we’re working on you, ensuring we have all the information we need to maintain your health and safety.
