Offering treatment means first gaining a detailed picture of your smile’s health. To accomplish this, we employ advanced digital technology, which offers more precise diagnoses and helps plan accurate treatment options. In today’s blog, we’re looking at the technology we use to help residents of Mansfield, TX, enjoy optimal oral health.
Digital X-Ray Technology
X-rays provide valuable information to your dentist, improving our ability to identify and diagnose your oral health concerns, and offer the most accurate treatment options. With an x-ray, we actually peer beneath the gum tissue and look at your teeth roots, wisdom teeth, jaw joints, and more. Employing digital technology means we gain a detailed look at your smile using 80% less radiation than traditional x-ray technologies. In addition, we don’t need to develop the pictures in harsh chemicals. Instead, they will be displayed instantly on a chairside monitor. We can walk you through the diagnostic process, helping you obtain an understanding of your smile’s health. We also have the ability to transfer these images to other practices, insurance companies, or medical offices, streamlining your treatment process.
We offer an alternative to the traditional dental impression. Instead of biting down on a mold filled with a sticky material, we employ cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). We use this digital technology to take a series of images of your smile. We then combine these images to create a detailed 3D model of your smile, which aids in the design of restorations and even the placement of dental implants, ensuring a new tooth that fits properly and offers long-lasting missing tooth replacement.
Intraoral Digital Cameras
In order to better diagnose common oral health concerns, such as tooth decay, gingivitis or gum disease, and oral cancer, we may employ intraoral cameras. The system involves the use of a tiny digital camera at the end of a thin wand. The thin wand and camera enable us to gather detailed pictures of your smile quickly and comfortably. We then examine the images chairside, allowing us to better identify the development of oral health concerns in the earliest stages. We offer a more precise diagnosis. Since the images we gather are digital, we can easily transfer them to referred specialists, your insurance company, or your medical doctor. If you have any questions about the advanced tech we offer, then please contact our team today. Using digital technology, we want to provide a more comfortable and convenient treatment experience.
