Before you can receive treatment for an oral health problem, it is important that your dentist know how severe it is as well as its cause. To make sure we have the right information, and to provide the right experience for patients, we use advanced technology to perform different diagnostic reviews. You can visit our Katy, TX dental practice to undergo a study of your teeth and oral structures with digital x-rays that offer remarkably detailed images while emitting less radiation than traditional x-ray devices. You can also come to us for an advanced study of your bite function using pressure mapping technology. With these services, we can proceed to provide personalized care that helps you move past potentially serious issues!

Using Digital Radiography To Examine Teeth
With digital x-ray technology, we can capture remarkably detailed images of teeth that have suspected oral health issues. By using this technology, we can more easily capture and display the views of your smile that let us identify active problems. We can actually display these images on a chairside monitor that we can use to explain why we are recommending a specific procedure for your tooth. In addition to capturing remarkable images in less time, this technology produces less radiation than traditional x-ray imaging tools.
How Pressure Mapping Technology Assesses Your Bite Health
The pain you feel from TMJ disorder can make jaw stiffness and discomfort a daily issue. You can also have more frequent migraines, neck and shoulder discomfort, and other issues to manage because of trouble with jaw alignment and movement. With Tekscan pressure mapping technology, we can capture details on the current alignment and movement of your bite, which helps us determine how we can improve your TMJ health and quality of life.
