We strive to help people in Mansfield, TX, enjoy optimal oral health, addressing common smile health issues, preferably in the earliest stages. In order to carefully examine the smile and offer the most appropriate treatment options, we may examine the smile and plan treatment using advanced technology. How do digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and CBCT scanning help improve smile health?
At one time, receiving a dental x-ray was a time-consuming process. However, with digital technology we no longer need to develop images in harsh chemicals, instead they’re available instantly chairside, so we can walk you through the diagnostic process. They provide incredibly detailed images and use 80% less radiation than traditional x-ray technology. In addition, this tech makes sending the x-rays to specialists or other dental offices a much simpler process.
For situations that call for much greater detail in an x-ray image, we may implement CBCT technology. With this system, we take multiple x-rays images from several angles using digital technology. The intersection of cone-beams creates an accurate and precise 3D model of the smile, allowing our team to plan dental implant placement, picking the right angle and area for placement to be able to withstand and absorb bite forces and pressure. We often use the technology to aid in tooth replacement, helping our patients enjoy a full smile once again! Remember, implant dentistry can aid in replacing one missing tooth, or several.
An intraoral camera enables our team to gather detailed impressions without having patients bite down on sticky, poor-tasting molds. Instead, we use a small camera set at the end of a special wand. Convenient and easy to use, the camera allows our team to take a series of detailed images of different parts of your smile. We then analyze and examine the images to obtain a detailed view of your smile and your oral health. Our team can make a diagnosis with greater precision and accuracy, planning your treatment and choosing the most appropriate solutions for your oral health concerns. The entire process is comfortable and only takes a few minutes to complete. If you have any questions about the tech we use to diagnose oral health concerns and create a personalized treatment plan, then please contact our team today. We would love to schedule a consultation and start you on the road to a healthier, more attractive smile.
