Imaging Technology And Its Value For Oral Health Evaluations

happy patient at dentist's officeAny time you brush and floss your teeth, you should take a moment to look over your smile and see if there are any issues of note. Do your teeth and gums appear healthy, or are you starting to worry about signs of trouble? A visual examination is helpful, as you can identify something that you want to bring to your dentist’s attention. With that said, imaging technology allows us to closely scrutinize your smile and determine if there are any problems. With the imaging technology at our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office, we can digitally evaluate your smile and use a convenient monitor to talk to you about any issues that might call for care.

What Is Happening With Your Smile?

Some problems with your oral health can be spotted with little difficulty. You may notice symptoms of poor periodontal health like swelling, periodontal bleeding, or the movement of your gum line. You could also identify issues like dental wear and tear, or unwelcome changes in your smile color. While these matters should attract your attention, you should be aware that there are symptoms of poor oral health that you may not be able to spot. Without treatment, those issues can worsen until they do cause noticeable problems.

Stay Informed By Scheduling Regular Dental Visits

As part of our work to keep patients informed about the state of their oral health, our practice can produce digital x-ray images of a person’s oral structures. Once these images are collected, we can review them with you, taking care to point out any areas of concern that might have been picked up. This can lead to feedback about the state of your teeth as well as your gums.

In addition to evaluating your smile during a routine visit, we also help you prevent problems. Through a professional teeth cleaning, we will remove plaque and tartar deposits that make you more vulnerable to problems with your oral health!

We Can Care For Your Smile If A Problem Is Identified

If the study of your smile does reveal problems, we can arrange the appropriate restorative dental treatment with you. A cavity caught in the course of your evaluation can be addressed while the damage to the tooth is relatively minor. Through the cavity’s removal, and the placement of a dental filling, the problem can be stopped discreetly. If you wait until a problem is serious enough to be painful, it may take a root canal procedure and dental crown to restore your oral health!
