Technology And Your Smile Care

What does technology offer when it comes to your smile care? In terms of how your teeth are evaluated and how you are treated, the right technology can help make your oral health care experiences better. Our Katy, TX dentist’s office employs technology in different ways to improve how we support patients. With options for laser treatment, advanced x-ray imaging, and even technology that measures bite pressure distribution, there are many ways in which access to better equipment can be beneficial. We are happy to discuss treatment options when you come in to discuss a problem, or whenever we find that a patient may need care for a problem during a routine exam and cleaning.

How Does Dental Technology Benefit You?

There are different scenarios where dental technology can provide important benefits for patients. Sometimes, we use technology to make experiences better in the course of evaluating a potential problem. At other times, treatments themselves benefit from using different tools. While it can be nice to know that there are so many ways in which we can make your time in our office better and easier, remember to keep up with a commitment to prevent problems. After all, even if you do undergo a comfortable procedure, the work your dentist provides can make permanent changes to tooth structure necessary.

Using Technology For Thorough Smile Evaluations

With digital x-rays, we have a more comfortable means of thoroughly evaluating patients’ smiles. This technology emits less radiation than traditional x-ray devices, and it enables us to capture images that we can share with you on a display monitor. Another form of technology used for evaluations is the Tekscan pressure mapping system. With this, we are able to provide feedback about your bite movement and function. Gathering information on how you apply and release pressure will help us to assess how we can treat an issue with TMJ disorder.

How Lasers Affect Your Treatment Experience

Thanks to the use of laser technology, there are different ways in which we can treat active problems with your oral health. The use of lasers in treatment for cavities can improve the cavity experience by making it more conservative. Dental fillings that are placed with this technology can offer lasting protection while not requiring anesthetic! With laser tools, we can also take on problems with snoring. The Nightlase treatment can shrink the oral tissues that create partial obstructions that make your nightly breathing noisier.
