At our Katy, TX dental practice, we are committed to making sure patients have great experiences with us! As part of that commitment to superior care, our practice uses advanced tools and technology to provide a modern treatment experience. Thanks to laser dental technology, you can look forward to treatments that are more comfortable, and without a need for anesthesia. You can also benefit from reviews that rely on advanced imaging technology to thoroughly check you for any possible oral health concerns. We can even provide an evaluation of your bite function, which can yield information that helps in the treatment of problems like TMJ dysfunction and teeth grinding.
Offering Treatment With The LightWalker Dental Laser
With the LightWalker dental laser, your dentist can perform work on your tooth structure with minimal discomfort. In fact, procedures that rely on this technology can be patient-friendly to the point of not requiring any anesthetic, so you have no issues with numbness after your appointment concludes! This includes treatments like the placement of dental fillings, which can lead to a cavity being addressed in short time, and less inconvenience.
Using Modern Imaging Technology To Examine Your Smile
Why should you care about the technology being used to study your smile? One benefit to having modern imaging equipment is that your dentist can take x-ray images while producing significantly less radiation. Digital radiography can reveal otherwise easy-to-miss problems, which can lead to restorative dental care at earlier stages. The sooner you receive treatment for a problem like tooth decay, the less harm to your tooth structure you experience, making early detection truly valuable. Our practice also relies on intraoral cameras to look at areas of your smile that are otherwise difficult to properly observe.
The Benefits Of Having Your Bite Mapped
By using Tekscan pressure mapping to analyze your bite, your dentist can figure out how to best treat issues with TMJ dysfunction and bruxism. After reviewing how evenly you apply pressure, and reviewing the timing of your bite and release, it becomes possible to see how corrections to your bite function can improve your dental health and quality of life. In addition to providing assistance with changing how you bite, your dentist might recommend orthodontic work to improve your dental function.
