A Look At Our Advanced Technologies

Did you know that as part of your treatment, our team offers high-tech systems? From digital x-rays to plan treatment, to 3D printing to create custom appliances, we use advanced technology to help your smile. In today’s blog, your Katy, TX, dentist talks about the advanced technology we use to help smiles of all ages. Our team can help improve your smile with precision and comfort, so you enjoy your best possible smile!

Laser Dentistry

Our team can use laser dentistry to provide care with precision and comfort, without the need for scalpels or sutures in many cases. In fact, most procedures that we use lasers for won’t require anesthesia, and usually heal quickly so you can return to your normal routine after a day of rest. Our team can use them to help treat sleep apnea, provide fillings without anesthesia, and to treat periodontal concerns to keep your smile strong and healthy. Treatment with dental lasers also reduces the risk of swelling, bleeding, and infection.

Tekscan Pressure Mapping

Our team treats serious oral health concerns like TMJ disorder and bruxism with oral appliance therapy, a comfortable and noninvasive solution. But to design and fabricate the design with precision, we will use Tekscan Pressure Mapping to determine where your teeth make contact, how much pressure is exerted, and the balance of your bite. We use this high-tech system to create appliances custom-fitted for your smile, so we can alleviate jaw pain and headaches with ease.

Digital X-Rays

To plan treatment with precision and accuracy, our team will employ high-tech digital x-ray technology. This system uses 90% less radiation, doesn’t require the use of bitewings, and creates images instantly, so we can see them chairside without waiting on development in harsh chemicals. Our team can see your teeth, roots, jaw, and oral structures in detail, so we can offer a diagnosis with precision and start your path to a stronger and healthier smile.

3D Printing Technology

Did you know that our office uses 3D printing technology? Our team can gather detailed digital images of your teeth to create 3D impressions, and we then upload that information into an onsite 3D printer, which crafts the appliances, crowns, implants, and more. We then ensure they fit your smile properly!

If you have any questions about our approach to high-tech dentistry, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you enjoy your best possible smile.
