Technology And Your Oral Health Evaluations

When it comes to diagnosing and treating oral health concerns, the right information certainly matters. To gather that information, our Katy, TX dentist’s office can rely on different types of dental technology to closely study your teeth and oral structures. Sometimes, this means performing a review to assess the severity of dental decay. At other times, it can involve a review of your bite movement and general jaw function to see how we can help you deal with chronic pain. Because we rely on advanced technology that yields 3D printed images, projects digital images, and even precisely measures the application and release of bite pressure, we can gather valuable details before proceeding with your personalized care!

The Right Evaluations Can Provide Important Information About Your Oral Health

With the right technology, we can make reviews of your teeth and oral structures more comfortable as well as more precise. The advanced dental technology that we use to perform these reviews will help with different matters. Digital radiography lets us survey teeth and inspect possible problems. When we need to assess what issues you might have with TMJ disorder, we can use Tekscan pressure mapping technology to understand your jaw movement. To create useful models that help with the planning of dental implants, fillings, and more, we can actually produce 3D prints that help with preparing your dental care.

Using Advanced Imaging Technology To Evaluate Your Teeth

Before we proceed with treating a problem, we can take advantage of digital radiography to create detailed images for study. This approach emits significantly less radiation than traditional x-ray tools, and what we capture can be projected on a screen for easy review. Because we enjoy a remarkable degree of detail, we can proceed with care with a better understanding of just how much work you need and how involved your care should be.

We Can Use Imaging Technology To Study Your Bite Function

As part of a plan to restore your bite function and treat TMJ disorder, we can use pressure mapping technology to see where you might have imbalances in the application and release of pressure. This can be an important step before we begin to work with you on correcting your jaw movement, as it tells us what movements need to be corrected and what we can help with when it comes to restoring your bite equilibrium.
